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.).

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.
