What is GAPS?
The term GAPS stands for Gut and Psychology Syndrome. Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, MMedSci (neurology), MMedSci (nutrition) coined this term and developed the GAPS Protocol. She developed the protocol after working with numerous adults and children with neurological and psychological conditions including autism, dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, depression, schizophrenia and other neurological conditions. The protocol has since also been successfully used to treat digestive conditions such as IBS, bloating and inflammatory bowel conditions. It has also been used to treat skin conditions such as rashes, allergies, eczema, migraines, arthritis.
The GAPS Protocol includes a thorough understanding of your health concerns, an indepth discussion about your digestion and then a treatment plan personally formulated for you. The dietary protocol was developed to help the gut lining to heal, support your digestive secretions and balance bowel flora.
Nicole can guide and support you through the GAPS diet protocol, and is committed to guide you to health and wellness.
