Donna Gates The Baby Boomer Diet and How to Grow Younger

Donna GatesDonna Gates Takes the Body Ecology Principles to a New Level to Help the Baby Boomers Grow Younger

Recently I got an unbelievable chance to interview well known nutrition expert and the worlds top digestive health specialist, Donna Gates.

Donna is the author of The Body Ecology Book that was published in 1996 and started what I will call a revolutionary new approach to nutrition.

Actually many may laugh as the secrets of the body and nutrition were not new at all, but had been around thousands of years. We had just lost touch with real food as more and more processed foods became available.

I am no expert, but I could have spent hours talking with Donna as you will hear from this interview, she has so much great, new and interesting information to share. Donna thank you for your time and for giving so graciously. – JW

Donna Gates, a nutritional consultant, author and lecturer has helped thousands of people overcome candidiasis and other immune system disorders.

Her book, The Body Ecology Diet, was written after years of research to find a cure for her own candida-related health problems.

Frustrated with conventional medicine, she embarked on a long course of study into many different healing concepts, including ancient Chinese medicine, macrobiotics, natural hygiene, raw foods and mega-supplement therapy. Incorporating the most beneficial components of each concept into her own system of health and healing, her success inspired her to share it with others.

A few years ago I attended a week long workshop with Donna Gates. It was an eye opening experience as she shared simple but powerful principles for attaining and maintaining a super healthy body. Everyone enjoyed her way of cooking and were delighted to take her recipes and probiotic nutrition home with them. I have been a follower ever since and at 85 am enjoying vibrant health.
Louise L. Hay, the New York Times best-selling author of You Can Heal Your Life


Body Ecology emphasizes the importance of what we put into our bodies and teaches a way of eating that makes me feel like I am in control of my health and in tune with my body’s intuitive needs. Cultured vegetables and coconut kefir have become essentials, not only in my home, but whenever I travel.

Los Angeles, CA-headquartered Body Ecology, Inc. may be the only company launched due to the demand created by a book!

When the first edition of The Body Ecology Diet:  Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity was published in 1996 by author Donna Gates, many of the supplements she recommended were not readily available as it was the first probiotic diet… easily 15 years ahead of its time.

As a result, she soon found herself in the product business, sourcing organic coconut oil and stevia, the sweetener, from around the world.  In fact, she’s credited for revolutionizing the market.

Not only did she bring stevia into the country and started a grass roots movement to get FDA approval–now, 15 years later, Coke and Pepsi are going to use it in their soft drinks because of the toxic nature of artificial sweeteners that Donna taught about.  And, while the scientific community totally wrote off coconut oil, Donna knew they were wrong.

Her work spurred new research on coconut oil and now it’s considered the healthiest oil on the market. She was also the first to reintroduce fermented foods to the American diet, way ahead of the probiotic trend, and supported Lifeway/Helios milk kefir to become multi-million dollar companies.

Today, The Body Ecology Diet is in its eleventh edition, sold nearly a quarter of a million copies and the newly revised edition is published by Hay House.

Body Ecology’s premium product line, made of quality ingredients, is sold in specialty health-niche stores throughout the United States and online.  For consumers who do not have such a store in their area, Body Ecology recently launched an e-commerce site, www.bodyecology.com.

These are the highest quality products available for people who have digestive health issues and auto-immune issues, including never before available fermented products that increase absorption and probiotic count.

The Body Ecology line was designed by Donna Gates after years of research to provide a foundational approach to make up for the nutritional deficiencies in modern diet and food supply in order to recover health, rebuild immunity, and grow younger.  Product categories include:

  • Body Ecology Core Program
