What is a GAPS Coach?

Certified GAPS Coaches (CGC) conduct pantry sweeps, supervise kitchen and equipment preparation steps and food sourcing exercises, teach GAPS cooking techniques including, but not limited to batch cooking and fermentation, and they “green” the home and workplace in a practical, hands-on fashion with their clients either in-person or online.  They also specialize in GAPS Fussy Eating/MTM protocols to address clients with fussy eating issues, which is best done in the home environment, and therefore, most ideal for GAPS Coaches.  Coaches have a limited “coaching” scope of practice where they work with clients and groups in non-clinical settings (the home, the grocery store, a commercial kitchen, etc.).

CGCs do not recommend supplements, but they are trained to take each client through a comprehensive consultation structure to personalize the GAPS experience for each client. CGCs place a strong emphasis on lifestyle change.  If supplementation is needed, CGCs can work with a qualified GAPS Practitioner should a client need supplemental support in addition to the GAPS Nutritional Protocol.  You will often find Certified GAPS Coaches and Certified GAPS Practitioners teaming up to provide clients with the most well-rounded GAPS experience.  They each play a valuable role to help people successfully implement the GAPS Nutritional Protocol. 

Why Would I need A GAPS Coach?

You may be wondering “Why do I need a GAPS Coach, I can follow the book and do this myself” and you absolutely can ... just as I did.  

 

However, the chances are, you’re considering GAPS because you want better health which you will most certainly achieve by following GAPS, although whilst battling with brain fog, depression, fatigue, autoimmune illnesses, neurological problems etc, etc one can feel that starting GAPS is utterly impossible and that’s where I can help.  

 

How Can A GAPS Coach Help Me?

I can help you implement the GAPS Protocol in any capacity you require, from coming to your home (if local) and cooking for you and if further away, we can work out how I can instruct you without physically being there.
