My Favorite Supplements on B.E.D. (Body Ecology Diet)

I found The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) in 2010 and haven’t looked back since. I like everything about this diet … from its yin/yang roots to the principle of food combining to the laid back approach of you are unique, do what feels good.

There is a relaxation here that I have not found in another diet. A place to come home to. As a Holistic Nutritionist for those practicing B.E.D., I am often asked which supplements to take. My answer, almost every time, is “check out the body ecology store” because I like their products and have taken most of them myself at one point or another. As have my husband and kids.

Rooting In 🌱

Watching someone begin a body ecology supplement is a joy in my line of work; like watching a child wake up to the world and realize their place in it, realizing their voice matters and that they are indeed strong and independent and utterly capable of doing life.

For example, a client came to see me for a couple of support sessions. He had been on the diet for a couple of weeks and was unable to poop without the help of laxatives. I recommended he try LivAmend and Bifidus Blend to get things moving. Within a week of taking both, he came back lighter in attitude and lighter in belly 🙂

Rooting into the body can be an empowering experience and I take my hat off to anybody who decides to help them-self in this way. Without further ado, I want to shine a spotlight on my favorite supplements that B.E.D. carries online for purchase when, and if, you are ready.
