This week our guest is Donna Gates. Her mission is to change the way the world eats. Over the past 25 years, she has become one of the most beloved and respected authorities in the field of digestive health, diet and nutrition, enjoying a worldwide reputation as an expert in candida, adrenal fatigue, autism, auto-immune diseases, weight loss and anti-aging. As a nutritional consultant, author, and lecturer, she has helped hundreds of thousands of people overcome candidiasis and other immune-system disorders. Drawing on the best of modern medical science, ancient Chinese medicine, and naturopathy-combined with first-hand experience counseling clients, she created Body Ecology™, her own proven system of health and healing. Gates has also been a key figure in revolutionizing the natural health industry by introducing and popularizing stevia, coconut oil, kefir and probiotic nutrition. Her groundbreaking book, The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity has sold nearly a quarter of a million copies and a newly revised edition is now available through Hay House.
“Health begins in the digestive tract, rampant use of antibiotics and sugar addiction has led to an epidemic known as Candidiasis or an overgrowth of yeast in the body,” explains Gates. “My program is designed to support imbalances in the system with a probiotic rich diet and supplements to improve your inner ecology.” Body Ecology™ emphasizes food and detoxification as the foundation for wellness. The resulting benefits are: greater energy, improved digestion, greater focus, a stronger immune system, weight loss and much more.”
Donna regularly appears in the media and conducts workshops to educate the public on medicinal foods. In October 2011, Donna will release The Baby Boomer Diet (Hay House) focusing on the Body Ecology philosophy for anti-aging and longevity. www.bodyecology.com.
