Here’s a video excerpt from Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride’s lecture about GAPS, the Gut and Psychology Syndrome at the WAPF Wise Traditions 2008 conference in San Francisco.
Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride successfully treated her own son, who was diagnosed autistic, which prompted an intensive study into causes and treatments of autism. It was during this time that Dr. Campbell-McBride developed her theories on the relationship between neurological disorders and nutrition.
Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, MMedSci (neurology), MMedSci (nutrition), graduated with honors as a medical doctor in 1984 from Bashkir Medical University in Russia. In the following years she gained a postgraduate degree in neurology. She also completed a second postgraduate degree in human nutrition at Sheffield University, UK.
She has been in practice as a neurologist, a neurosurgeon, and now runs the Cambridge Nutrition Clinic where she helps patients recover from autism, allergies, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and many many other disorders that, according to Dr. Campbell-McBride, all stem from GAPS.
In 2004, she published the book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome
: Natural Treatment Of Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression And Schizophrenia, in which she explores the connection between the patient’s physical state and brain function. The book gives full details of the GAPS Nutritional Protocol, highly successful in treating patients with learning disabilities and other mental problems.
In her clinic, Dr. Campbell-McBride also works with many patients suffering from heart disease, high blood pressure, arrhythmia, stroke and other complications of atherosclerosis. She has become acutely aware of the existing confusion about nutrition and these conditions, which spurred an intensive study into this subject. The result of this study is her new book Put You Heart In Your Mouth! What Really Is Heart Disease And What We Can Do To Prevent And Even Reverse It.
You can buy the videos, CDs or mp3 recordings from the Weston A. Price Foundation website. The complete conference on mp3 is only $169 (that’s what I bought last year — and LOVED it! I had lectures to listen to when I was doing dishes or running errands for 2 months.) You can also buy individual recordings for only $15.
