B.E.D. Support with Tara

Getting started on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) is a personal challenge and worth the effort. The first stage is time-consuming but rewarding, you’ll be making probiotic food like young coconut kefir, food combining, and maybe even weaving a colonic into your busy week.

This can be a lot to take on, especially if any of the above is new for you. Luckily, taking on too much of anything at once is not the name of the game, no matter how excited you are! Donna Gates, the founder of this diet, recommends a step-by-step approach and that’s what I’m here to help you do.

I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and offer support sessions by phone, Skype, or at my office in Vermont.

What is B.E.D.?

Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) is a way of eating that’s designed to address yeast, bacterial, and viral overgrowth. The purpose of the diet is to restore the inner world of friendly flora – a.k.a. probiotics – living inside your digestive system. The mainstays of the diet do not contain any gluten, sugar, or yeast. Traditional methods of preparation are used to ensure food that is easy-to-digest, nutrient dense, and probiotic-rich. Within a few short weeks of diligence you can expect to feel a significant shift in your health.

B.E.D. is not a fad, it’s been around a long time. The underlying principles are thousands of years old and can be used your entire life, even passed down to your kids.

Body Ecology Diet can help…

  • Babies with colic, diaper rash, or cradle cap
  • Kids with autism, allergies, adhd, or asthma
  • Teenagers with acne, anxiety, or anorexia 
  • Women with reproductive, menstrual or hormonal issues
  • Men with weight gain, erectile dysfunction, or jock itch 


  • Inflammation
  • Cancer
  • Food cravings
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Yeast overgrowth (Candida, vaginitis, oral thrush, athlete’s foot, nail fungus)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Poor memory, focus issues, brain fog
  • Headaches, migraines
  • Bacterial overgrowth (group B strep+, SIBO)
  • Digestive issues (bloating, constipation, diarrhea, food sensitivities)
  • Skin Rashes
  • Viral infections (sinusitis, hepatitis, gastroenteritis)

A bit about me…

I’m a Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant (NC) with a background in gut and brain health. I’ve personally used B.E.D. to heal chronic yeast overgrowth and both my kids entered the diet with digestive issues. We’ve been making cultured food and practicing food combining for many years now and I know what it takes to put food on the table for a hungry family while moving through the diet myself.


I want you to succeed because I know how awesome this diet is once you’ve moved through the learning curve. I’m here to support you 100% as you customize this diet to meet your needs. To remind you to go slow. To give step-by-step ideas while living a busy life. To answer questions and set your mind at ease when things don’t go according to plan. To help with detox and chronic health issues. To brainstorm ways to make meals that even the pickiest eater will eat.

Parents, if your child is in need of diet changes, you can ask for support on his or her behalf.

 “Tara, you’re full of good information. As the saying goes: “It’s only a one degree difference for water to boil”…You’re that degree that helps me stay on B.E.D. Thank you!” SC, Cleveland, OH

I understand how overwhelming it is to consider doing The Body Ecology Diet, but it’s well worth it. You’re in good hands with Tara, she helped my family navigate this path too. ~ RT, Acton, MA

I met with Tara weekly for a 6-week period for a constipation issue. During that time I began to poop daily, rather than once every 10 days. Tara’s bag of tricks and supportive guidance made all the difference. ~ PK, British Columbia, CA
