Meet the Fooduciaries
Kelli is the co-founder of Fooduciary.com. Diagnosed with an auto-immune disease as a child, Kelli has always paid close attention to her health. But when that disease went beyond the care of traditional care medicine, she found answers, and healing, through lifestyle improvements and working with a functional medicine doctor.
Through this journey Kelli has gained a wealth of knowledge about nutrition and what a clean eating lifestyle entails.
Kelli’s first book, The Clean Eating Healthy Detox Diet, is an outline of the path she took to regain control of her health.
Born in Washington DC, raised in Utah, Kelli now resides in Austin, TX after a nearly year long round the world trip with her husband, Brad.
Raised on an all-American diet consisting of canned, boxed and frozen dinners, Brad discovered the benefits of natural food when he watched a loved one go from poor health to full well-being after adapting a clean food diet. Such an event opened his eyes to the power of clean foods and fueled his motivation to help others eat the best way possible for their body.
Coming from a business background, Brad’s career took a turn towards the nutrition and natural foods realm when he saw traditional practitioners shrug their shoulders when asked tough questions. With Kelli, Brad created Fooduciary.com as a way to share knowledge he had gained and to associate with others who both seek and provide answers to frustrating health concerns…or who just want to eat some good food.
He is inspired daily by watching readers embrace a clean food lifestyle and aiding those with similar health food questions that he once had.
Originally from Utah and now a resident of Austin, Texas, naturally he enjoys healthy cooking but also reading, scuba diving and braving the wilderness. A victim of the travel bug, Brad has traveled around the world and lived in some amazing foreign lands like Brazil, Costa Rica,New Zealand, Australia and Bali.
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.
Much more than a “diet,” Body Ecology offers a constantly expanding body of knowledge that focuses on the benefits of establishing and maintaining an inner ecosystem. Eating fermented foods and following the BED principles lays down a foundation for health that is essential to wellness.
Body Ecology and Donna are frequently mentioned in the books of many other authors and in natural health magazines. She does radio shows and workshops to educate the public and is well-regarded for introducing Americans to new concepts and insights for using medicinal foods. She pioneered “young coconut kefir“, a healthful, nutrient-rich drink. Donna’s latest focus is on resolving the crisis of our children’s health, and she is committed to preventing and overcoming autism.
