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.

    Comments about The Body Ecology Diet:

    For anyone experiencing digestive trouble, bloating, IBS or any other difficult-to-diagnose intestinal trouble, this is a must read.
    I've gone from bloating and discomfort every day for the last ten years to a perfect working digestion in 3 weeks. Buy it, follow it and stick to it!
    Good luck

      Comments about The Body Ecology Diet:

      I wasn't going to bother writing a review, then I saw it was for this book!

      I wish every single person I knew could read this book. Whether you feel like you are unwell, or not, this book gives you guide lines on how to eat for optimal health like no other book on the market, and I have read a LOT about health, so I don't say this easily. It isn't some brief, mainstream gimmick. It could save your life, or save you from suffering illness, or even heal underlying illnesses.
      Buy esp if you have an autistic child, or look into Bedrock community as this explains how good gut health/bacteria is essential to brain function, and really, essential to the function of our body as a whole.

      Such an awesome book! Oh, and I've been adopting the principals contained in it for two weeks, and haven't felt this amazing in years, and people already thought I was healthy :D
