WHAT IS GAPS™* (The Gut and Psychology/Physiology Syndrome)
A faulty digestive system with abnormal digestion, damaged gut lining, and dysbiosis of intestinal microbiota/flora leads to nutritional deficiencies, toxicity, and impaired immunity that contribute to the conditions of autism, ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, addictions, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, epilepsy, autoimmune conditions, asthma, allergies, eczema, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis, digestive disorders, and other mental and physical illnesses.
WHY PEOPLE ARE GAPS™
Compromised digestive systems often begin for many at birth when intestinal dysbiosis is passed from mother to child. Digestive disorder progresses in many individuals as a result of eating processed foods and exposure to environmental factors and toxins.
HOW TO HEAL WITH GAPS™
The GAPS™ protocol emphasizes the healing foods of broths, fats, ferments, and juicing, while adhering to a grain-free, sugar-free diet.
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE HEALING WITH GAPS™
Aileen began dietary intervention in 2004 for her oldest son diagnosed on the autism spectrum. This healing journey eventually led Aileen and her six children to the healing broths, ferments, and juicing of GAPS™ and collectively overcoming autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia of speech, OCD, ADD, anxiety, asthma, skin conditions, and hypoglycemia.
*GAPS™ is the term used for both the syndrome/condition and the healing protocol created by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD.
