Digestive issues, asthma, eczema, allergies and more are thought to be directly linked to leaky gut syndrome, where bacteria and other toxins move through damaged areas of the gut lining into the blood stream, creating toxicity in the body.
The GAPS protocol was developed to heal these disorders through healing the gut. GAPS protocol is based on allowing the digestive system to repair and re-inoculate.
It also encourages ridding your home of toxic chemicals and using natural personal care products. Supplements including probiotics, essential fatty acids, vitamin A, and digestive enzymes are encouraged.
** The Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS™) Program was developed by trained neurologist Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. GAPS™ is based on Dr. Campbell-McBride’s medical research and practice helping countless children and adults with digestive problems, neurological disorders, psychiatric diagnoses, learning disabilities, immune system disorders, and Autism.
