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 became a Holistic Nutritionist in 2014 to help others feel better. That’s my why, here is my how.
As a kid …. I had chronic health issues with a nose that dripped, eyes that itched, lungs that felt as if an elephant sat on them, and a brain that wanted nothing to do with anything brainy. ON the other hand, I was creative, loved drawing, being with babies and in the woods with animals, and playing! Despite physical hardships I had a genuine deep down excitement to be alive.
I was very insecure about my health issues. None of my friends seemed to have the same problems and I was embarrassed by how much I blew my nose, how eating pizza ruined me for days, how a dusty house set off my asthma. I truly understand living life in an uncomfortable body.
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 done colonics since college and really got into them again in my 30’s, after being diagnosed with yeast overgrowth when a friend lent me The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). This book had a chapter on colon cleansing to balance the body of excess pathogenic yeast, bacteria, and viruses …. all right up my alley!
