GAPS Diet

Gut and Psychology Syndrome

Natural treatment for autism, ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, depression and schizophrenia

The Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet (GAPS Diet) was created by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride and is founded on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) created by Dr. Sidney Valentine Haas to heal digestive disorders.

The GAPS diet can help children and adults suffering from neurological, immunological, hormonal and gastrointestinal disorders such as ADD, ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, asthma, food allergies and intolerances, eczema, bed wetting, thrush, finicky eaters, chronic ear infections, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, chronic cystitis, colic, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), leaky gut syndrome, menstrual irregularities, polycystic ovarian syndrome and so on.

It is very usual that when a child needs to go on the GAPS nutritional program to heal its gut, the whole family needs to do GAPS as well. This is usually because we get our microbiota from our parents, especially the mother, via the birth canal and breast milk. This is why I advice all future mothers to do the GAPS Diet -or a similar version if there is no need for GAPS Diet- for a short period of time as part of the preconception care and continue taking probiotics during their pregnancy. This will ensure a healthy bacterial colonization of the birth canal and the child will have a very good start in life.
