WHAT IS GAPS?

Gut and Physiology Syndrome and Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS).

The natural treatment for healing the body of a plethora of physiological and psychological disorders stemming from an unhealthy gut.  Both syndromes overlap in many areas and have the same underlying problem being the state of the digestive system. Both can be improved and in many cases healed, by following the GAPS protocol.

The gut lining is a tight barrier and acts as a security system, it decides what gets absorbed into the bloodstream and what doesn’t. However, in GAPSters, holes have developed in the gut barrier causing toxins and pathogens to seep through wreaking havoc on the body resulting in a multitude of physiological and psychological disorders. GAPS looks at the body as a whole and concentrates on healing and sealing the damaged gut wall to prevent undigested particles of food and toxins seeping through the gut wall and into the bloodstream, which cause a multitude of maladies to the body.

A gut full of healthy, beneficial gut microbes is essential for one's

immunity, wellbeing and overall health.

Gut and Physiology Syndrome refers to all physical conditions and illnesses under the following umbrellas :

  • Autoimmune conditions,

  • Allergies,
