Fatigue, headaches, mood swings, weight gain, allergies, joint and muscle pain, inflammation: these are just some of the signs that indicate you may unknowingly be suffering from a ‘silent invader’ –Yeast/Candida.
The resulting imbalance can be a key factor in numerous health problems including chronic fatigue, food allergies, skin disorders, obesity, depression, digestive disorders, and other immune-related diseases. In The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity (Hay House, 1st Aug 2011/£12.99), author Donna Gates reveals a groundbreaking programme for recovering your health with probiotic nutrition and simple dietary transitions that can profoundly impact your well-being.
“Health begins in the digestive tract, rampant use of antibiotics and sugar addiction has led to an epidemic known as Candidiasis or an overgrowth of yeast in the body,” explains Gates. “My program is designed to support imbalances in the system with a probiotic rich diet and supplements to improve your inner ecology.” Body Ecology™ emphasises food and detoxification as the foundation for wellness. The resulting benefits are: greater energy, improved digestion, greater focus, a stronger immune system, weight loss and much more.”
Donna Gates is a leading expert in digestive health and has helped hundreds of thousands heal and improve their health. Dealing with her own health issues and frustrated with conventional medicine, she embarked on a long course of study into many different healing concepts, including ancient Chinese medicine, macrobiotics, raw foods, and mega-supplement therapy. Incorporating the most beneficial components of each concept resulted in the Body Ecology system of healing.
In the book, Donna reveals how to restore and maintain the ‘inner ecology’ your body needs to function properly, and eliminate or control the symptoms that rob you of the joy of living. She emphasises simple yet important dietary transitions that can profoundly impact how you feel such as:
• Drastically reducing your intake of carbohydrates and sugars
• The addition of cultured/fermented foods, such as kefir, to your diet
• Changing the quality of fats and oils you consume
The Body Ecology Diet is endorsed by many doctors, nutrition experts and even celebrities tout the benefits. According to actress Jessica Biel, “Body Ecology emphasizes the importance of what we put into our bodies and teaches a way of eating that makes me feel like I am in control of my health and in tune with my body’s intuitive needs. Cultured vegetables and coconut kefir have become essentials, not only in my home, but whenever I travel.”
