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 Nutrition Consultant (NC) with an interest in traditional foods and the digestive system. I worked many years as a Therapeutic Chef for people with mild to serious illnesses and have personally used B.E.D. to heal my systemic yeast overgrowth. I have been making cultured food and practicing food combining with my family since 2010. I now offer nutritional support by phone/Skype or at my office in Montpelier, Vermont.

I want you to succeed because I know how awesome this diet can be once you move through the learning curve. I am here to offer support 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.

“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 The Body Ecology Diet, but you are in good hands with Tara. She helped my family navigate this path too. ~ JS, Worcester, VT

 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
