One Woman’s Testimonial: B.E.D. Support with Tara

Testimonial for B.E.D. Support with Tara

Tara Carpenter, NC.

Specialized in supporting those with digestive disorders, yeast overgrowth, and on The Body Ecology Diet.

Every now and then I receive a testimonial worthy of sharing with the world. The lady behind the words below is a lovely, strong, vivacious woman who has taken hold of the reigns of her life and experienced a bounty of depth and wellness. I am touched by her kindness. 

In her words ….

I discovered The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) at a time in my life when I was stuck in an unhealthy relationship that didn’t feel good and I was stuck in a body that didn’t feel good. I had spent years struggling with my health and various versions of disordered eating.

I was 100 pounds overweight, my joints hurt, I was sick all the time, and I had allergic reactions to everything. I was chronically exhausted and had a hopelessly weak constitution, something I feared would last the rest of my life. I was only 23 years old.

Traditionally, parsley is used as a remedy for anemia, bad breath, menstrual pain, and more; enjoy all the benefits in one glass 🙂 I will go as far as to say that within a week of drinking this green smoothie each morning, you may be hooked! The blend works and tastes great. 

You do not like them. So, you say.
Try them! Try them! And you may.
Try them and you may, I say.

Meet Nama Shoyu: Traditional Soy Sauce

Nama Shoyu is a traditional soy sauce that is unpasteurized; nama means “raw” and shoyu means “soy”. This soy sauce is made by fermenting non-GMO soybeans with a probiotic fungi called Aspergillus oryzae plus the addition of water, wheat, and sea salt.

This mixture is left to ferment in cedar kegs for 6 to 8 months; sometimes as long as 4 years.

How I do Colonics: In My Bathroom

Tara Carpenter, NC.

20160116_225616I’ve done colonics since college when I experimented with fasting. In my thirties, I had stubborn systemic yeast overgrowth and was stumped where to begin healing. A friend lent me The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and I began that way of eating.

I also rekindled my enjoyment for colonics after reading a chapter in the book about how colon cleansing can bring balance to the body when there is yeast or bacterial overgrowth.

Stage 1 Grocery List for The Body Ecology Diet

Stage 1 Grocery List for The Body Ecology Diet

This grocery list is for Stage 1 of Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). This stage lasts about 3-6 months and when most people feel dramatic changes in how they feel. This is good! The body is cleansing, realigning, and most of all …. healing. How long you remain on Stage 1 depends on your individual health concerns and reasons for stepping into this diet. 

The body is a self-healing organism, and this list is a tool to start feeling better! Ready to transition to stage 2? Here is the Stage 2 Grocery List.

The Body Ecology Diet was created by Donna Gates as a holistic and natural approach to address yeast, bacterial, or viral overgrowth (i.e., CandidaGBS+). By practicing this diet, your digestive system gets the opportunity to rest and repair and renew. 

I practiced stage one for 3 years. A long time, yet that is what I needed for my own healing. I hit the bullseye every day and transformed my health (i.e., no more stomach pain, slow digestion, or bloating).

Jump-start your body to be the self-healing organism you are.

The foods below are the basics to get you started. These foods help your body “rest and repair” and get yeast or bacterial overgrowth under control and heal accompanying damage to the digestive/immune system.

Celebrating Easter on The Body Ecology Diet

Celebrating Easter on The Body Ecology Diet 🦋

Stay light and easy (and colorful!!) as you heal with B.E.D. ….

These alternative Easter ideas are for The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.), a gut healing protocol specifically designed to balance yeast, viral, and bacterial overgrowth. I started B.E.D. in 2010 when my boys were 2 and 7, the key years for celebrating all the holidays!! I’ll say Easter is by far easiest.
