Getting Men Into B.E.D (Body Ecology Diet)

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.

Skiing on The Body Ecology Diet

Skiing on The Body Ecology Diet

My husband and I went to Attitash this holiday as the kids were with their dad this year and we had the freedom to do whatever we wanted!! Though I’m not hot on skiing, I am BIG on sweating in the sauna, back trail xc skiing, and catching up with my husband slash ski enthusiast for delicious meals.

We rented a studio at the base of slopes that had a kitchenette – fridge and all – and that right there made traveling on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) much easier. As many of you know, I camp alot in the summer with just a tent and 2-stove burner, so this kind of travel is a luxury 😊

Bolus Recipe for Vaginal Yeast Infections

IMG_5081

Boluses (a.k.a. ovules, vaginal suppositories) are anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and provide relief from vaginal yeast infections. These tube-like shapes are solid at room temperature but melt once inserted to release the oils and herbs inside which will absorb into the vaginal tissue.
