The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity by Donna GatesWhen I first developed severe food allergies, a friend gave me this book. It has some solid information on acid/alkali balance and the principles of detoxification, and it helped me better understand how nutrition is medicine - but I really cant recommend it for several reasons: Following this diet religiously will starve you. I can only imagine it being advisable as a detox program for the severely ill, while being monitored by a doctor. I dont believe the testimonials in the book about how easy it is to eat this way once youre used to it, which leads to my second complaint: This book is more propaganda than information. The author is clearly pushing her little cultured-coconut water starter kits and all the other products she sells. It pisses me off that so many of us are living with chronic, mystifying illnesses in a country without universal healthcare and books like this feed profit off our desperation.

Young Green Coconut Kefir
Great discoveries often stem from a touch of serendipity and some creative experimentation. Don Kidson, owner of the Living Lighthouse the raw foods center for the Los Angeles area , introduced Donna to the value of young green coconuts. Most Americans have seen and tasted the milk and meat of the mature brown, hairy coconut; a green coconut is really the same food, but it is just younger. Sometimes the green outer shells are cut off before they are shipped to U. Many health food stores will carry them upon request. Although the liquid of the young coconut has an abundance of minerals, Donna was concerned that it would be too sweet.

It was shocking. The changes I see in my body, strength, focus and sleep so far have me almost convinced to never eat sugar again.
