I interviewed my husband, Tomas, to help other couples better understand each other when one, or both, is healing with The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). When I met Tomas in 2011, I’d been on stage 1 of B.E.D. for a year to clear a stubborn systemic case of yeast overgrowth that was causing multiple health issues.
I was nervous that by sharing my body, I’d be re-exposed to yeast and bacteria from his own health issues and need to start my healing process over again.
At the time, I was a single mother working as a therapeutic chef and placenta encapsulationist and studying nutrition each evening in a graduate program. I was busy. Working his health/dietary needs was an added strain I’d do again in a heartbeat for eating the body ecology way brought us into balance (in more ways than one). I wish the same for you and your own intimate relationships.
I’ve had chronic health issues since I was a kid with a drippy nose, itchy eyes, tight lungs, and fiery brain. I understand what it feels like to be uncomfortable, day and night. By 40, I was labelled with ADHD, asthma, allergies, MTHFR, mast cell syndrome, pernicious anemia, and Sjogrens; many of which stem from lifetime of corticosteroids.
My mother drove hours to source organic food (this was 1980 and good food hard to find), she also kept a garden and chickens. Her efforts to live a natural life (+ my desire to get off medication) fueled my desire to feel better. I was the middle child of a large family and busy household and rarely a moment to slow down.
I took a long while to connect the dots between how I felt and what I ate; even longer to understand how child/adult life stressors factored into overall health …. how just the way one naturally breathes can affect the whole.
As a woman, I must share this smoothie with you; easy-to-make, delicious, and a vibrant color! I first heard about green vegetable smoothies in 2011 when I used The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a stubborn case of systemic yeast overgrowth and though I took time to ease into making them, I was hooked once I did.
These kisses are easy to make, gluten-dairy-refined sugar free, and the perfect something if you are on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). When I was healing on stage 1 of this diet, I kept a stash (+ other sweet treats) in my freezer to nibble on when I craved sweet …. they are also great for the lunchbox.
I’ve been doing colonics since college and really got into them when I was in my 30’s, shortly after being diagnosed with yeast overgrowth. A friend lent a book called Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) that had a chapter on colon cleansing as part of a protocol to balance the body of excess yeast, bacteria, and viruses …. right up my alley!
