About the Founder
Donna Gates, M.Ed., ABAAHP, is the international best-selling author of The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity, The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger: Anti-Aging Wisdom for Every Generation. She is also on a mission to change the way the world eats. The Body Ecology Diet was the first of its kind—sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, and probiotic rich. In 1994, Donna introduced the natural sweetener stevia to the U.S., began teaching about fermented foods, and coined the phrase "inner ecosystem" to describe the network of microbes that maintains our basic physiological processes—from digestion to immunity. Over the past 25 years, Donna has become one of the most respected authorities in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. In 2013 she completed an Advanced Fellow with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.

Praise for Donna Gates and The Body Ecology Diet
A few years ago I attended a week long workshop with Donna Gates. It was an eye opening experience as she shared simple but powerful principles for attaining and maintaining a super healthy body. One of the most important things in the workshop was that Donna fed us breakfast and lunch. We were able to taste and experience how delicious the fermented foods were. Everyone enjoyed her way of cooking and delighted to take her recipes and probiotic nutrition home with them. I have been a follower ever since and at 84 am enjoying vibrant health.
- Louise L. Hay, the New York Times best-selling author of You Can Heal Your Life.
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.
- Jessica Biel, Actress.
If you're suffering from chronic health problems and confused at all the differing messages out there, please don't make the same mistake I did and take the long road to find answers. After all the programs, you'll eventually find Body Ecology. What a life changer. Thank you Donna!
- Chynna Phillips, Singer and Actress.
Donna Gates has opened my mind up to new and amazing alternatives and possibilities to healing. Never did I know and fully understand the power food has in regards to healing the body. Not only is the book educational for a better life but the food is DELICIOUS! Who knew healthy food could be so good?!

Lizzy Jarbeau: Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I have had my first week on your 30-day detox. My #1 goal is health, i know i am on the right track when my body doesn't hurt and weight shifts. I did lose a total of 8lbs. last week. No eating food out of a box, makes a big difference. Of course the many other great things you are teaching me.. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you and your staff, who responded quickly to rectify a damaged product i ordered. Donna, you have put a great team around you. Keep sharing your knowledge, it's powerful.
Renea, Florida: Dear Donna, I am a hashi person for the last ten years and I got your body ecology diet book last week and I simply can not put it down!!! All my questions are being answered as I go through the book:):) within last three days my whole energy level is being changed!!

Cindy Dabbous: I have learned SO much from you Donna Gates! Thank you so much for really helping me master my digestive health! I love your emails and always forward them to my family and friends. We all love you.
Amber Alley Penney: Donna, I can't thank you enough for responding to my questions. I have to say I was surprised you could find time for that. I sent you my questions in a state of desperation, and I was really, really encouraged by your response. I am feeling better. I did seem to turn a corner soon after our communication. I definitely think this is the right path for me, and while I have so much to learn and know it's going to take time, I am not as overwhelmed. Thank you so much for all the information and encouragement you've provided this month. There is so much light and life within it. Bless you for your graciousness and your willingness to share your wisdom.
Rachel Warrick: It saved my life. I had candida (undiagnose) and a very wonderful friend (Julie Wendt) read this book and recognized my symptoms. The doctors told me I was fine. They were very wrong I am very healthy now, once I learned how to eat to heal my issues! Thank you Donna Gates for putting this information in a book!
