Donna Gates teaches us all about gut health and the importance of having a healthy inner ecosystem. We also talk about her new cookbook, The Body Ecology Living Cookbook.
I’ve admired Donna and her 20+ years of work in the health industry for so long. Her book, The Body Ecology Diet, was the first health book I read so I am so happy to have had the opportunity to have Donna on the podcast!

About Donna Gates
Donna Gates, M.Ed., ABAAHP, is the international best-selling author of The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity, The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger: Anti-Aging Wisdom for Every Generation, and Stevia: Cooking with Nature’s Calorie-Free Sweetener. An Advanced Fellow with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, she is on a mission to change the way the world eats.
The Body Ecology Diet was the first of its kind—sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, and probiotic rich. In 1994, Donna introduced the natural sweetener stevia to the U.S., began teaching about fermented foods, and coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the network of microbes that maintains our basic physiological processes—from digestion to immunity.
Over the past 25 years, Donna has become one of the most respected authorities in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. A recognized radio host of The Body Ecology Hour with Donna Gates on Hay House radio, Donna regularly contributes to The Huffington Post and The Daily Love, and lectures at the “I Can Do It!” Conference, The Longevity Now Conference, and Women’s Wellness Conference.
The Body Ecology Diet
Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide have found the Body Ecology diet after struggling with candida, chronic fatigue, depression, weight problems, early aging, ADHD, autism, hormone imbalance and auto-immune disorders.
Body Ecology offers a back-to-basics approach to restoring health and vitality. The digestive system is intimately linked to the immune, endocrine, circulatory and central nervous systems. Profoundly affecting all these interlocking systems is an amazing world of benevolent bacteria. The Body Ecology Diet and associated products are all specifically designed to help cultivate, nourish, cleanse, and repair this abundant inner ecosystem.
After 25 years of studying Eastern healing systems and Western fad diets, international best-selling author Donna Gates, M.Ed., ABAAHP, world-renowned teacher and lecturer, discovered the key to health and longevity… a flourishing inner ecosystem living inside your intestines. Based on a deep understanding of how the digestive tract truly affects how you look, feel and even think, the Body Ecology Diet offers a gluten-free, sugar-free, probiotic-rich way to eat that will change your taste buds and your life forever.
