Body Ecology Diet and Type-1 Diabetes

One of my subscribers told me about the Body Ecology healing program –– quite interesting. John and I listened to a podcast with the founder Donna Gates. It contains a lot of similarities to GAPS and Nutritional Balancing. But there are some things I don’t agree with (though I am not going to go into them at this point).

Not reading any of her books I do not know how much research she has backing up her protocol. But the talk was informative and it is worth checking out. But at this point, for us, we are sticking to Nutritional Balancing for at least one year. In less than six months we’ve already seen enough positive changes to keep us committed for a five-year trial.

I don’t believe flip flopping from one protocol to another is a good idea. You need to give things a chance. I did GAPS for a year and found I needed something more in-depth. One day I may read Donna Gates’ books. But right now I am sticking to NB.
