     If you’re experiencing discomfort, fatigue, or other symptoms that won’t go away no matter what you do or how many doctors you see, chances are you’re one of the millions unknowingly suffering from a systemic fungal/yeast infection, “the hidden invader.” The result of an imbalance starting in your internal ecosystem, this can be a key factor in headaches, joint and muscle pain, depression, cancer, food allergies, digestive problems, autism, and other immune-related disorders.  

     The Body Ecology Diet 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. Tens of thousands of people have already benefited from the Body Ecology way of life—Donna Gates shows you, step-by-step, how to eat your way to better health and well-being . . . deliciously, easily, and inexpensively!

     In this book, you will learn how to: use seven basic universal principles as tools to gain mastery over every health challenge you may encounter; focus on your inner ecology to create ideal digestive balance; conquer cravings with strategies for satisfying snacking and for dining away from home; and plan meals with dozens of delectable recipes, an array of menus, and detailed shopping lists.

    I Also Recommend:

    Well-written for the lay person!

    I have been struggling with candida for 10 years. Over that time, I have read bits and pieces in many different sources - a lot of which was confusing and/or conflicting.

    "The Body Ecology Diet" was recommended to me by my acupuncturist. What a great find! Donna Gates does an excellent job of explaining what candida is and how it happens. She does the best job, however, explaining how it affects the body, how what we eat affects the body and how what we eat affects the candida.

    After 10 years, I finally understand that candida is something that needs to be managed over time - it can never be "cured" because there will always be some yeast/fungus in our bodies.

    The recommended diet in this book would benefit anyone with digestive problems or serious health issues because it eliminates those foods which cause/compound many problems for most people today.

    I will be sending this as a Christmas gift to several people.

    Life Changing

    This book is a MUST read from anyone lacking in energy or feeling a bit "off". I am a full-on energy person, my job requires a lot of attention to people and my ability to stay up & positive so when over the course of about a year I wasn't feeling myself, I found The Body Ecology book just in time! I have implemented honestly only maybe 60% of it's teaching's since I wasn't suffering as full-on as some people are. You can start with one basic thing that actually is easier than you think: CUT ALL SUGAR. I did, and luckily I was not/am not a sugar addict, so this wasn't too bad. But by doing that 1 thing, I felt enormous difference in 72 hours. By then, I poured over this book cover-to-cover, went through my kitchen cupboards, and lost about 5 pounds in 3 weeks! No bloat, no sluggish feeling. Can't say enough about The Body Ecology book. I think I'm bugging my friends talking about so much! Run don't walk!!

    This is right on with everything I have come to understand about diet!

    Donna Gates makes it very easy to understand why eating a very healthy diet that contains the things that are natural and healing for your body makes your whole life a delight. She uses sound advice from sound knowledge and common sense to back up her claims. This and some other recommendations (Rawsome, by Bridgitte Mars, a book about detoxing from addictive foods.) are all you need to get on the right path to healthier days.
