GAPS Program - Digestive Dysfunction, Neurological & Psychiatric Diagnoses, Learning Disabilities, AutismGAPS – Gut and Psychology Syndrome. GAPS therapy was developed to heal these disorders through healing the gut.
What it is –Gut and Psychology Syndrome, a condition where psychological or neurological disorders such as autism, ADD, schizophrenia, depression, and OCD are believed to be influenced by imbalances in the gut.
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.
Reflexology – Natural BalanceReflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way. Reflexology helps the body to establish homeostasis to seek natural balance between the systems.
The human body literally glimmers. The intensity of the light emitted by the body is 1000 times lower than the sensitivity of our naked eyes. Through Creation we can help the brain unblock the flow of light and activity in the unconscious mind and remove the blockages that get in our way of living life to the fullest. Our conscious and subconscious brain is beyond compare in its complexity.
If there is a block in the subconscious it’s hard to move forward with emotional and physical healing, how to use your God given gifts and knowing your purpose in life. Blocks show up when nothing is working and you can’t move forward. Creation is about discovering what your subconscious blocks are and clearing them.
After releasing these kinds of subconscious blocks it’s amazing to see how everything can begin to change.

How it Works –ZRT Laboratory is a Hormone testing collection that consist through Saliva, Blood spot and Urine Testing.Saliva Testing – Cortisol, Estrogen and TestosteroneA non-invasive collection asks clients to spit into a plastic tube. – the bioavailable amount.Why do we test hormones in saliva? Steroid hormones in the bloodstream are 95-99% bound to carrier proteins, and in this form are unavailable to target tissues. Saliva testing measures the amount of hormone available to target tissuesBlood Spot Testing – Hormone, Insulin, Blood Lipids, Vitamin D, Thyroid, ElementsA form of collection where clients place blood drops on a filter card after a finger prick with a lancet. Once dry, blood spot cards are extremely stable for shipment and storage. It offers distinct advantages over serum because it eliminates the need for a blood draw – saving clients time and money.Urine Testing – Hormone, Elements (Iodine), Heavy Metals (Arsenic, Cadmium)Clients saturate a filter card with a urine sample. This is the best way to measure adrenal and sex steroid hormone by-products and their respective metabolic pathways, providing a gauge for understanding the body’s hormone metabolism.

Heavy Metal Detox – Brain Fog, Memory, Focus, Lack of Energy, Heart Health, and More…
What are Metals? Heavy metals are in the foods we eat, water we drink, and the air we breathe. The human body does require trace amounts of a few metals. Metal poisoning occurs as a result of the unhealthy accumulation of specific metals in the body. Metals become toxic when the quantity is too high and it takes very little to be too high. Mercury, arsenic, lead, aluminum, and cadmium are four of the most common metals that can be especially harmful. For every 17 micrograms of lead in your body, your IQ is reduced by 10 points. How many of us would have been much brighter if we didn’t grow up in a time where they used lead paint or lead in the automobile fumes?
What are the Symptoms? Studies show that heavy metal toxicity can contribute to memory loss, brain fog, irritability, cardiovascular disease, heart arrhythmia, high blood pressure, fatigue, bipolar disorder, insomnia, migraines, ADHD, autism, developmental delays, depression, inability to lose weight, acne, parasites, low body temperature, metallic taste in the mouth, sensitivities to smells like smoke, paint, and perfumes. Metals can be a source of food for viruses, bacteria, parasites, Streptococcus A or B, E. coli, C. difficile, H. pylori, and yeast, which can cause bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation. Heavy metals can displace important vitamins and minerals in the body which can lead to nutrient deficiencies. Lack of nutrients can weaken the immune system and set the stage for infections, cancer, and chronic disease. Electromagnetic Field sensitivity has also been linked to metal toxicity.
Why is a metal detox important? Not only are they damaging in their own right, they are also a form of neurotoxin (a poison that disrupts nerve function and confuses your immune system). Once they are in your body, they cause damage and initiate oxidative stress.
Parasite Detox – Itching, Sugar and Carbohydrate Cravings, Unreasonable Anger or Mood Changes
What is a parasite? A parasite is an organism that lives on or in a host organism, and gets its food from or at the expense of its host. There are three main classes of parasites that can cause disease in humans: protozoa, helminths, and ectoparasites.
What are the symptoms? Due to being many species of parasite there is a wide array of potential symptoms that they can cause.
These are some of the potential symptoms that might occur:
- Itchy anus or vagina
- Weight loss and/or increased appetite
- Abdominal pain
- Vomiting & Diarrhea
- Sleeping problems
- Aches and pains
- General malaise
What is the benefit of a detox? Supporting your body with the proper supplements you will help the body flush out different kinds of parasite within the body. It reduces symptoms and discomfort. Additionally, it flushes out bacteria that is a harmful to the coexistence between bacteria and parasite, which could leave the body vulnerable to infections and diseases. It promotes immunity and allows the body to absorb more nutrients from the food you eat. Lastly, it improves digestion, mood, and overall health. When the body is receiving the proper amounts of nutrients from the food you eat, the system becomes healthier and promotes optimal digestion.
Chemical/ Pesticides Detox – Neurological Disorders, Fertility, Developmental Disorders
What are Chemicals & Pesticides? Chemicals and pesticides are present in all of our foods, as well as the air we breathe. Chemical compounds that (could be) added to natural foods or gases can cause significant problems to our bodies. For example, a chemical compound called MSG (monosodium glutamate) is often added to food to improve its flavor. Chemical preservatives make it possible to keep food on the shelves without spoiling, but some preservatives such as nitrates can have serious health effects.
What symptoms can you get from them? The symptoms that may occur are things such as: abdominal pain, dizziness, headaches, nausea, vomiting, as well as skin and eye problems. Long-term symptoms being: cancer, reproductive defects (birth defects), and fertility issues.
Why a detox will help? Removing toxic chemicals and pesticides from your system must begin with eliminating exposures to any substances that are (potentially) poisonous. By identifying the source of exposure to toxic substances, and avoiding those substances, we can start to break the cycle of repeated exposure to those toxins. Reforming our behavior, and consumption choices, allows us to support the body’s natural detoxification and elimination abilities. With the addition of cleansing treatments – such as supplements and foot baths – it can help to speed up healing and restore your body to a better, healthier you!
Kidney Detox – Cardiovascular Health, Headaches, Itchiness, Low Energy
What is the function of a kidney? The kidneys remove wastes and extra water from the blood to form urine. Urine flows from the kidneys to the bladder through the ureters. The wastes in your blood come from the normal breakdown of active muscle and from the food you eat. Your body uses food for energy and self-repair. After your body has taken what it needs from the food, waste is sent to the blood.
What can happen when it is backed up? If your kidneys did not remove these wastes, the wastes would build up in the blood and damage your body. The first signs that you are sick may be general: frequent headaches or feeling tired or itchy all over your body. If your Kidneys get worse, you may find yourself more often or less often urinating, as well as a loss in appetite or experience nausea and vomiting. The body may start to swell or feel numb in the hands or feet, as well as feeling drowsy and having trouble concentrating.
Why a detox of the Kidneys may help heal? Flushing out your kidneys keeps them functioning at their best. Healthy kidneys are essential to a variety of body functions. Your kidneys help detoxify your blood by removing toxic compounds and passing them out through the urine. If blood cleansing becomes impeded, toxins can remain and circulate throughout the body, which can cause harm. A detox of the kidneys may help blood pressure restoration, reduce the risk of kidney stones, help to fight infections, and may lower the risk of kidney failure.
Colon Detox – Digestion, Immune Deficiency
What is the function of the Colon? The body has two types of intestine: small and large. The small intestine is connected to the stomach and handles the middle part of the digestion process. The large intestine, also called the colon, is part of the final stages of digestion. It is a large tube that escorts waste from the body. The colon gets rid of food left over after the nutrients are removed from it, bacteria, and other waste. First, liquid and salt is removed from the waste as it passes through the colon. Then, the waste makes its way to the sigmoid, where it is stored. Once or twice per day, when the body is ready for a bowel movement, the waste is dumped into the rectum.
What can happen when it is exposed to toxins? A toxic and clogged colon can be the source of many health problems. Toxins retained in the bowel can leak into the surrounding tissues and the blood, affecting the other organs. A clogged and toxic bowel cannot have good absorption. Gradually your immune system can be weakened as the chronically toxic bowel environment destroys useful bacteria. A toxic colon can cause toxic blood and lymph, toxic organs and cells, and may result in sluggish and inefficient body function.
Why is a colon detox important? A colon detox is can be helpful in eliminating/washing away toxins from the body, in the best natural way possible. When your colon is backed up with toxic material, your entire body can become sluggish and unable to perform its day-to-day tasks. Luckily, the body does a good job detoxifying itself on a regular basis. However, some toxins may require some help to facilitate removal, which is why a detox can help get rid of those toxins.
Liver Detox – Digestion, Weight, Vitality, Immune, Stones, Energy
How does the Liver work? The liver is the largest solid organ and the largest gland in the human body. Your liver is located below the diaphragm on the upper-right side of the body and carries out a many essential tasks. Classed as part of the digestive system, the liver’s roles include detoxification, protein synthesis and the production of chemicals necessary for digestion.
What is the liver’s function?
Bile Production: bile helps the small intestine break down and absorb fats, cholesterol and some vitamins.
Assists in Creating Blood-Clotting Factors (coagulants): Bile is created in the liver; if the liver does not produce enough bile, clotting factors cannot be produced
Fat Metabolization: bile breaks down fats to make them easier to digest
Metabolizes Carbohydrates: carbohydrates are stored in the liver where they are broken down into glucose and siphoned into the bloodstream to maintain normal glucose levels. They are stored as glycogen and released whenever a quick burst of energy is required
Vitamin and Mineral Storage: the liver stores vitamins A, D, E, K and B12.
Helps Metabolize Proteins: bile helps break down proteins to make them digestible
Production of Albumin: albumin is the most common protein in blood serum. It transports fatty acids and steroid hormones to help maintain the correct osmotic pressure and prevent blood vessels from becoming “leaky”
Filters the blood
Why is a liver detox important? A liver detox will help to purge and purify the liver of built up toxins, stones, and sludge. It consist of taking a few supplements, which support the normal detoxification processes of the liver. Additionally, periodically taken foot baths may also help pull out those toxins faster.
Gall Bladder Detox – Gallstones, Digestive
What is the Gall Bladder? The gallbladder is located under the liver on the right side of the abdomen. Its primary function is to store and concentrate bile, a yellow-brown digestive enzyme produced by the liver. The gallbladder is part of the biliary tract.
How does it work? The gallbladder serves as a reservoir for bile while it’s not being used for digestion. Its absorbent lining concentrates the stored bile. When food enters the small intestine, a hormone called cholecystokinin is released, which signals the gallbladder to contract and secrete bile into the small intestine. The bile helps the digestive process by breaking up fats. It also drains waste products from the liver into the duodenum, a part of the small intestine.
Why is a detox of the Gall Bladder important? It can help to ensure a free flow of bile, both into and out of the gallbladder, in other words, clean the organ out. It’s simple to perform, by supporting your Gall Bladder with the right supplement needed for the cleansing it may help to ensure the Gall Bladder is working at optimum performance.
Mold & Fungus Detox – Headaches, Respiratory Problems, Skin Rashes, Gastrointestinal Problems, Genitourinary Problems, Immunosuppression
What is Mold & Fungus? Mold and fungus are caused by excess moisture. It can be found in buildings caused by leaking pipes, rising dampness in basements or ground floors, or rain seeping in walls, windows, etc… If you have mold or fungus, it’s important to find out why you have excess moisture in those areas.
What are the Symptoms? Mold and Fungus illness affects multiple systems in the body, which in turn causes the afflicted to exhibit a magnitude of any of the below symptoms: Fatigue, Weakness, Aches, Muscle Cramps, Unusual Pain, Headaches, Light Sensitivity, Red Eye’s Blurred Vision, Tearing Sinus Problems, Cough, Shortness of Breath, Abdominal Pain, Diarrhea, Joint Pain, Morning Stiffness, Memory Issues, Focus/Concentration Issues, Word Recollection, Confusion, Disorientation Skin, Sensitivity Mood Swings, Appetite Swings Sweats (especially night sweats), Temperature Regulation or Dysregulation Problems, Excessive Thirst, Increased Urination, Static Shocks, Numbness, Tingling, Vertigo, Metallic Taste, Tremor
Why is a detox important? Without the proper microflora, fungi and their toxins can break through the wall of the intestinal tract, entering the bloodstream. When your bowl is toxic, the rest of your body soon follows; just like when your blood is full of toxins, your organs are responsible for cleansing it (liver, kidneys, skin, etc.) When organs become overloaded, multiple health problems can occur; which is what many people experience after being exposed. By detoxing your system, your gastrointestinal tract is your first line of defense against mold and its toxins. Having a GI tract populated with beneficial flora is crucial for optimal immune function!
Fat Detox – Weight, Obesity, High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol
What is fat?Fat is an essential part of our bodies nutrition, and we cannot live without it. There are two kinds of fat: saturated and unsaturated fats. Fat is a concentrated source of energy. Fat also helps to protect our vital organs, enables our bodies to process vitamins A, D, E and K, contains essential fatty acids, and makes food taste so much better!
What function does it play in your body? Our bodies require small amounts of ‘good fat’ to function and help prevent disease. However, a lot of modern diets contain far more fat than the body needs. Too much fat, especially too much of the wrong type of fat, can cause serious health complaints including obesity, higher blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which in turn lead to a greater risk
Why is a Fat detox healthy to do? It is important to do a fat detox, because as you feed your body with those heavy unhealthy fats, it clogs the arteries in your blood, causing major build up and back up in your bloodstream and system. By pulling out or breaking down the clogs, it may help with weight gain, cholesterol levels, bloating, and pressure on other organs in the body. By detoxing and rebuilding your organs with the nutrients it needs, it can allow you to start feeling better, happier & healthier.
