“All disease begins in the gut.” – Hippocrates
The GAPS Diet is based on the work of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. Researching the SCD Diet (Specific Carbohydrate Diet), which was originally created by Dr. Haas and biochemist Elaine Gottschall to treat irritable bowel diseases, she found that she could take it a step further by describing the gut-brain connection in the book Gut and Psychology Syndrome.
The GAPS Diet was originally created to treat Autism to be applied later successfully to reverse autoimmune diseases and a myriad of health challenges that have the gut as root cause.
The GAPS Diet is built around 4 principles:
- Removing the foods that cause inflammation
- Increasing the foods that heal the gut lining
- Increasing the foods that rebuild the gut flora
- Using specific supplements that support the diet
The Holistic Specialists team has been trained and certified by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride herself, and are excited about helping you make the change you need. We use the GAPS Diet template and modify it to individual cases with specific needs based on comprehensive diagnosis and assessments.
Tests we use to treat patients with cognitive and emotional disorders:
- Functional blood test
- Gut health testing
- HPA-D testing (adrenal fatigue)
- Food intolerance (food allergies)
- Toxic chemicals
