Gaps Diet World Wide Support Group
GAPS stands for Gut and Psychology Syndrome. All disease starts in the gut( Hippocrates ), and by healing the gut, you can heal yourself. ‘The primary seat of insanity is in the region of the stomach and the intestines’ Philippe Pinel (The father of modern psychiatry 1807)
The GAPS diet is based on the work of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, a neurologist and nutritional consultant from the UK, while trying to treat her sons’ autism. She discovered Elaine Gottschall /Dr Haas's SCD Diet (Specific Carbohydrate Diet). The SCD diet is backed by 124 years of research and testing. Dr McBride took it a step further by describing the gut-brain connection in the book Gut and Psychology Syndrome.
Dr McBride claims that this nutritional protocol helped her son off the autism spectrum. If the gut isn't functioning properly then food is also not digesting and becomes toxic in the body leading to disease.
The gut also helps get rid of waste, when it’s not able to do its job, that waste can build up in the body causing a toxic environment. over 75 percent of our immune system is located in our intestinal tract , and if damaged would leaves us more prone to sickness and disease.
The Gaps diet is not easy to implement and will require a lot of will power, management and moral support. The Gaps Diet is a small but growing worldwide community. Its not difficult to understand but hard to implement and hence it is important to connect to other members who have gone through the process.
What can I eat on the on the gaps diet?
*If you suffer from a chronic illness you should always talk to your doctor before making any major dietary changes. You may get a lot worse (die-off) before you get better. If your system is very sensitive it is advisable to take any dietary change very slowly.
