The GAPS Diet was developed by pioneering British physician Natasha Campbell-McBride. Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) refers to disorders including ADD/ADHD, autism, addictions, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, stemming from or exacerbated by leaky gut and dysbiosis. Gut and Physiology Syndrome (also GAPS) likewise refers to chronic gut-related physical conditions, including celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type one, and Crohn's disease, as well as asthma, eczema, allergies, thyroid disorders, and more. An evolution of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, GAPS will also appeal to followers of the Paleo Diet, who are still struggling for optimum health. Clinical nutritionist and frequent speaker on the Weston Price understandings of nutrition and the GAPS Diet Karen Lyke explains how and why this diet promotes gut healing and improvement in many diseases.
