Did you know that scientists have successfully used beneficial microbes to clean up the toxic waste from oil spills in the past?
The devastating effects of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill are expected to be experienced for generations to come. The ocean life and our food supply are now severely affected, and as you know, the list of the damage is pretty depressing. But, how can we stop any further destruction?
After the Exxon Valdez oil spill, 11 million gallons of crude oil threatened the ecosystem of Prince William Sound in Alaska.
To help clean up the disaster, scientists used microorganisms that converted the hazardous oil into less toxic compounds.
This natural process, called biodegradation, happens when microbes like bacteria and fungi break down complex pollutants into simpler substances to gain energy and nutrients. In effect, the bacteria "eat" the harmful pollutants.
Bacteria can even "eat up" pollutants like radioactive materials, pesticides, metals, and industrial solvents.1
Beneficial microflora are one of Mother Nature's most important ways of keeping herself clean. But what does biodegradation have to do with you and your health?
If simple bacteria and fungi can clean up oil spills, radioactive waste and chemical pollutants, then what can they do for your health?
Inside your body is a thriving inner ecosystem of microflora (good bacteria and yeast) that keep you healthy and strong. These are called Probiotics.
But, if you eat too much sugar and processed foods, take drugs, live a high stress lifestyle or don't get enough sleep, you create an environment inside your body that encourages the growth of pathogenic (bad) bacteria and fungi like Candida albicans.
As a result, your inner ecosystem will be out of balance, and you are in need of an “inner clean up”.
If you suspect that your inner ecosystem needs a clean up, then microbes like the ones that "eat" toxic substances can cleanse your system and bring your body back into balance.
The Body Ecology program focuses on establishing a vibrant inner ecosystem full of beneficial bacteria and good yeast (microflora) to detoxify your body, boost your immunity and improve your health.
This fermented CocoBiotic is a superfood and super cleaner. The beneficial bacteria go to work in your digestive system.
Fermented foods and drinks are what set Body Ecology apart from other diets. In fact, we are much more than just a “diet”; we offer you a system of health and healing that just can’t be found elsewhere.
Fermented foods and drinks were part of most ancient cultures and are just now beginning to enjoy a huge comeback as more and more people try to improve their health and wellbeing. These beverages and foods contain live, active probiotics that populate your gut with the microflora you need to cleanse your system and keep you healthy.
Fermented foods and drinks are essential to maintaining your inner ecosystem and can clean up your body the same way bacteria and fungi help clean up our environment.
Now that you know how important good bacteria and yeast are for maintaining health, you can make simple changes to incorporate them into your lifestyle. Fortunately, fermented foods and drinks are delicious and convenient! Body Ecology offers plenty of ways to get your daily dose of probiotics.
Try these tasty ways to populate your inner ecosystem with good bacteria:

Keep in mind that clean up takes time, in the environment and in your body. The good news is, you can do it Step by Step with Nature's own healers: microflora.
Taking steps to introduce beneficial bacteria into your ecosystem will start you on the path to wellness, Body Ecology style.
