The GAPS™ Diet is based on the work of Natasha Campbell-McBride, M.D. In her efforts to effectively heal gut-related disorders, Dr. Campbell-McBride discovered the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), as developed by Sidney Valentine Haas, M.D. and written about in Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health through Diet by Elaine Gottschall. Dr. Campbell-McBride took the Specific Carbohydrate Diet a step further by describing the gut-brain connection in her book Gut and Psychology Syndrome™. She emphasized the importance of detoxifying the intestinal tract, healing the gut through nutrient-dense foods and sealing or protecting the gut by establishing healthy levels of beneficial bacteria, using traditional lacto-fermented foods and beverages. Her patients coined the term “GAP Syndrome” or simply “GAPS™”. The diet has become known as the GAPS™ Diet.
It is our experience that the GAPS™ Diet and its accompanying nutritional program is the most effective way to heal the gut and bring an end to chronic intestinal illnesses, skin disorders, asthma, allergies, learning challenges, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, autoimmunity and many other disease states. Kim Schuette, CN, Loretta Boatcher, NTP, Susie Burns, NTP, Toni Fairman, NTP, and Anna Robertson, NTP are Certified GAPS Practitioners. They are available for private consultations.
