There are a few people who have had a huge impact on the way I eat and one of those people is today’s podcast guest, Donna Gates. As an expert in Body Ecology, this remarkable woman has dedicated her life to helping people heal their bodies and experience vibrant health. Her approach to nutrition is insanely powerful, and I especially love her strong focus on bio-individuality and treating each body as unique.
