Comments from BEDer's

"For me, the courage to get well didn't come easily. Physically and emotionally I was very defeated, but I began to feel better within a few days of starting the diet. I can honestly say that I didn't know it was possible to feel as good as I do, and it gets easier each day. I know it sounds dramatic, but I tell people that it has saved my life. My family and I are very grateful." – N.V. Marietta, GA
"I really think that the BED system of healing is a diet that can become a lifestyle, not just a short term program." – K.M.
"The BED system of healing has revolutionized my life. Your book helped to diagnose my condition and with the help of my doctor, I am now 4 months into recovering my body, mind and spirit. This "insanity" which has been going on for years is finally under control and I am regaining my precious health. How can I thank you enough for writing the diet bible of this century." – N.N. Shelburne, VT
"I am 69 and have been using probiotic foods for many years and I am in very good health. I never get flu shots or any other kind either. Diet is the best medicine." – Sharon Redding, CA
"My son was diagnosed with Autism over two years ago. His body had lots of the wrong bacteria and it struggled to break down proteins adequately - no more. The Kefir breaks the protein down for him and gives him the bacteria and enzymes he needs to gain nutrients from his food. His ability to think and speak has improved remarkably. He was prone to panic attacks and had a compulsive obsessive disorder - this has also greatly improved. I am so grateful to you for making this possible." - Natasha, Sydney, NSW
"The BED diet has saved my life! At the age of 51, I now have a clean and clear inner eco system. The diet has been exciting and difficult at the same time. But the results are the prize. I feel and look 35, as Donna promised. I tell everybody about the book, and of course, you are going to be the best testimonial by the way you look to others. I always believed we are what we eat, but never to the degree of the principles of the BED diet, thank you Donna." - Jill, Waukesha, WI
"I wanted to write and thank you for giving me the knowledge that has saved my life. In March 2001 I went to a holistically minded physician who was the first to tell me I had a "gut problem". Klebsiella pneumonia with zero good bacteria. In April I started doing what she said and it really didn't help. I went through her regiment for 2 months. The end of May I started the Body Ecology Diet principles. When the end of July came I was "Cured" of about 90% of all of my lifelong problems. This lasted for a 2 month period of time. The reason is my wife had to have surgery which stopped the cooking and eating correctly. Then massive stress with many other life changes occurred. I knew I had to get back to it. I let it lapse for almost 3 years before going back to it. What a waste of 3 years. I feel much better now. Not quite where I need to be due to just starting again and I haven't fully implemented the total program. One thing I did learn is life is precious. Just because we have been use to living this way for our entire lives or a good portion of it doesn't mean we have to do it anymore. Blessings to all on the path of health. Thank you Donna and The Body Ecology Team. It was great seeing you at the Conference in Oct. " - Ken, Las Vegas, NV
