Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride is the creator of GAPS, which stands for Gut and Psychology Syndrome. and Gut and Physiology Syndrome. As a parent of a child fully recovered from a severe learning disability, she devoted her time helping others overcome disabilities through targeted nutrition. Understanding the crucial link between the health of the digestive system and the brain, she developed the GAPS nutritional protocol to support children and adults with, but not limited to:
- Learning disabilities
- Autoimmune illness
- Digestive problems
- Neurological and endocrine problems
- Eczema and psoriasis
- Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
- Chronic cystitis
With over 70% of the immune system housed in the digestive tract, the GAPS Diet was designed to re-balance the microbial environment (called gut flora or microflora) in turn targeting underlying physiological imbalances and dysfunctions in the immune system. The health of the gut is intricately linked to mental health through via a complex bi-directional communication pathway called the gut-brain axis. With the GAPS nutritional protocol being the “number one intervention in successful nutritional management of the GAPS child or adult,” Dr. Campbell-McBride does recommend therapeutic supplementation to support the body through healing and we have provided the most popular GAPS-approved helpful supplements to get started on your journey.
