B.E.D. Support with Tara

Getting started on the Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) is a personal challenge and worth the effort. Though the first stage is time-consuming, it is also rewarding as you learn how to food combine, make probiotic food like young coconut kefir, and weave a colonic into your week.

This is a lot to take on. Luckily, taking on too much of anything at once is never the name of the game, no matter how excited you might be to begin. Donna Gates, the founder of B.E.D, recommends a step-by-step approach and that’s what I am here to help you do.

About Tara

I am a certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant (NC) and offer B.E.D. Support both virtually and locally at my office in Montpelier, Vermont. I have a background in digestive health and personally used B.E.D. to heal systemic yeast overgrowth. I have been making unsalted cultured food and practicing food combining with my children since 2010. 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 move through the learning curve. I am here to support you as you customize the diet to meet your needs. To remind you to go slow and offer step-by-step ideas while living your life. To answer questions and set your mind at ease when things don’t go according to plan. To help with the detox period and to brainstorm ways to make meals that even the pickiest eater will eat.

If you have a child in need of dietary changes, you can ask for support on his or her behalf.

This is a good choice if you want answers to questions about detox, food combining, where to start, or how to do this diet while pregnant, or with kids. You will be cheered on as you fine-tune your experience.

Booking: 60 minute Q&A can be booked here. You will receive a confirmation email that will include available times to meet by phone, Skype, in-person at my Central Vermont office, or email (15-minute increments). To book a 30-minute session, contact Tara

Start-Up Session

This is a good choice if you want customized nutritional support with an in-depth review of your health history and dietary needs. You will receive a daily food journal, health timeline, and handouts specific to your health condition(s). Start-Ups are designed to help you assess your health and take your first steps into the Body Ecology way of eating. 

Fee: $325 (75 minute initial intake plus 2 follow-ups – 45 minutes each)

Booking: Please fill out a nutritional intake form to book a Start-Up. You will receive a confirmation email within three business days that will include an invoice and available times to meet by phone, Skype, or in-person at my Central Vermont office.

Note: I am not a licensed medical practitioner and do not handle acute or serious medical conditions. If you have a health condition that is not well-managed, or you are severely restricted in the foods that you tolerate, please contact Tara before booking a support session.

 “Tara, you are 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
