Book: The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger by Donna Gates

Book: The Body Ecology Guide to Growing Younger by Donna Gates

I usually don't subscribe to food or nutrition books, just plainly because there are so many different diets and approaches to food out on the market, that it's hard to pick one that makes sense for one's life style. However, I became intrigued by this book title's claim to growing younger, and decided to give it a try.

Being a vegetarian, there are certain foods that I will definitely not try, otherwise I'm open to suggestions of foods which will help not only to kill the harmful effects of certain substances but also to provide a better way to clean and keep the body well and healthy. This book is a guide - therefore, expect lots of hints and helpful information about food. This is the first time I am coming into contact with Donna Gates' body ecology principles, and I believe she has found a very interesting concept to improve the quality of life and health by giving a step by step guide that shows the benefits of eating and/or avoiding certain types of food and substances. Some myths are broken, and it's perfectly OK, after all, not everyone has the same body type or can tolerate the same amount of food or liquid in their diets. One should choose to live by what makes sense to their organism.

This is a very helpful guide to be kept handy when cooking or preparing food. The chapters about cleansing and detoxification were particularly beneficial, highlighting some information that was not new, and some which debunked some myths on how to eliminate toxins from our system. Worth trying for the sake of feeling better. My only issue was some of the recommendations for the shopping list at the end of the book. These items are not so easy to find and obviously buying everything organic can certainly put a big dent on any budget. If you can find a way to reconcile what you can do with the information and still maintain a healthy diet after reading this guide, you will definitely reap great benefits for your body.
