What is the GAPS Diet?

The GAPS diet stands for Gut and Psychology Syndrome.  It was created by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who cured her own son of autism. Dr. Natasha wrote the book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, A.D.D., Dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Depression, Schizophrenia


GAPS is a diet that helps people heal from digestive disorders, food allergies, as well as a host of physical, mental and emotional problems.

On the GAPS Diet, you are allowed meat, eggs, fats, non-starchy vegetables, bone broths (chicken, beef and fish stock), and organ meats. The GAPS Diet also includes lots of fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, sour cream, and naturally fermented sauerkraut.  Dairy is restricted at first, and then slowly introduced (most people find that they can overcome dairy allergies).
