The best bits of all great ways of eating...2/6/14
I read this book in no time and realised that all fad diets that work up to a point are great BUT Donna's book takes it further by reintroducing beneficial bacteria - The Missing Link! I love how it takes us back to a time when we had a different relationship with our food and our environment.
My son is talking because of this diet - I will eat this way for the rest of my life!!!11/22/13

My son (3y/o) was diagnosed with a speech delay and considered at-risk for autism. Doctors, therapists, and academic personnel (who didn't want to stop feeding him sugar based cereals, foods and gluten) refused to believe what he ate could effect his recovery and treatment. It was almost like recovery was a bad word. After a month of following this diet he is clearly speaking more words and sentences, and engaging in more conversations. He no longer experiences gastrointestinal discomfort, is less agitated, and is even enjoying potty training (or maybe that's just me:)! My WHOLE family feels better, my skin is glowing, I'm less moody, and I feel SOOOO GOOOOD! I will eat this way for the rest of my life!
After undergoing chemotherapy, I developed a severe chest infection. It lasted nearly two years. During this time, I was on antibiotics over a dozen times--sometimes for as long as a month. This decimated the healthy bacteria in my gut, and I had all the associated symptoms. And none of the doctors had a clue. Thank goodness Donna Gates wrote this book. I have been on the Body Ecology Diet for six months now, and I am feeling much better. If you have a problem with yeast over-growth, read this book.
I am following the diet and all the information, it makes so much sense. Thanks, Donna!
Very good information8/29/13
This is a very informative book, well written and just what I have been looking for.
Love the products and the lifestyle. I feel and look better than I have in all my 60 years!7/11/13
I bought the premium package plus some other products. I love this lifestyle and believe in it whole heartedly--after 30 years of trying everything healthy out there. Body Ecology makes sense. Proper food combining is a must--if I forget...I notice right away! Love making cultured veggies, so much fun! Looking forward to making my own kefir next. The drinks are absolutely delicious. Thank you Donna! After one month, I look and feel better than ever! Namaste

I knew it was time to do something about my health especially yeast over-growth. This book is very helpful and has ben full of " a-ha" moments. When you read it be sure to have a highliter to mark things that pertain to you and also some sticky tabs so you can easily locate things.
I have found the Body Ecology Diet to be a great resource on really healing the gut flora and getting past piece meal approaches to digestive and overall health. Being a yoga teacher I have great alignment with the ayurvedic knowledge that the entire source of our health, vitality and well being resides in the status of our gut. This book helps navigate how to assess and heal. Particularly appreciate the addition of fermented foods into my daily diet and am currently boosting that intake to the recommended 1/2 cup serving per meal.
Good read and some important info!6/19/13

great for those unfamiliar with cultured foods6/7/13
this book thoroughly covers all aspects of the cultured food life. i really liked it. was not entirely in agreement with the eastern spiritualist thought.
