If you’ve made it to my website it’s likely that you’re already familiar with the question, What Is GAPS™? and the GAPS™ Protocol.
You might have read the book, heard stories from friends, or even tried implementing a few changes with your own family…I knew about GAPS myself for quite some time before I actually implemented it in my own family.
However, in case you want to know specifically what it is, here’s a definition:
What is GAPS?
GAPS is an acronym for the Gut and Psychology Syndrome™, a term coined by the patients of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride and the title of her book of the same name. Individuals and families have been using GAPS to successfully treat illness and imbalance for over twelve years. The related SCD diet has been used for over 100 years.
GAPS makes a connection between the condition of a person’s gut health and the health of the rest of the body and brain. It is a healing protocol that is implemented for a finite period of time to restore balance and promote wellness.
The GAPS™ PROTOCOL includes three components:
Using these three components, it re-balances the intestinal ecosystem so that the body can be deeply nourished, and the function of digestion restored. The diet (deep dietary nourishment with bio-identical foods, properly prepared), supplementation (that support the foundations and add in beneficial microbes), and detoxification (safe & gentle removal of toxic overload), all work together and are what make the GAPS protocol so effective and capable of reversing autoimmune conditions, cleaning up the neurological system, and promoting health and growth on the cellular level.
However, as most good things are, GAPS is a bit of a change, and that is where I have the privilege of helping. Through a variety of tools and offerings, I help families to implement GAPS™. Are you interested in learning more? Click here.
