WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM THE GAPS* PROTOCOL?
Updated: Jun 9
Pretty close to everyone can benefit from the GAPS* Protocol (GAPS* stands for Gut and Psychology / Physiology Syndrome & was created by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride)…
It is very rare that I come across friends, family members, co-workers, acquaintances, or friendly strangers that don’t check off several symptoms or issues addressed in one or more of Dr. Natasha’s books. If you actually take the time to ask someone to explain their health history, it usually starts with one issue that then leads into another until there are several compounded on top of each other. Try it for yourself right now; see how many symptoms or issues you can identify with below:
Gut & Digestion – Abdominal Pain, Acid Reflux, Anemia, Bad Breath, Belching or Burping, Bloating, Candida, Celiac Disease, Colitis, Constipation, Crohn’s Disease, Diarrhea, Diverticulosis, Food Allergies, Food Intolerances, FPIES, Gas or Flatulence, Gastritis, Gastroparesis, GERD or GORD, Gluten Intolerance, Haemorrhoids, Heartburn, Hypochlorhydria (Low Stomach Acid), Indigestion, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Lactose Intolerance, Leaky Gut, Malnourishment, Oesophagitis, Parasites, Recurrent Vomiting Syndrome, Reflux, SIBO, Ulcers, Ulcerative Colitis, Worms, etc.

If you’ve gotten this far and can identify with several symptoms or issues, YOU’RE NOT ALONE! Try to think of one person in your circle of connections (20 years or older) that does not have at least one symptom or issue noted above… If you were able to find one person, then please do go ask them what they’re doing so differently than yourself and the general population! They must have a secret potion or remedy that they’re not telling you about and can market or sell to the masses interested! If you weren’t able to think of any one person without a single issue, then again take comfort in the fact that you’re not alone, and you’ve come to the right place to learn how you can change that.
And why do we think this is normal to live every day with so many symptoms or issues to drag us down? I know everyone “hopes” to live better healthier lives. But has anyone asked the question why are we getting sick in the first place? Is your medical doctor able to explain some of the reasons why we get sick in the first place or why we continue to get sicker & sicker?
If these questions have got you thinking and you want to learn more, book a Free Discovery Session where we can discuss some potential reasons of why you have these symptoms/issues and what we can do about it. All of the information passed on to you in the discovery session is obtained from one or more of Dr. Natasha’s books and can be easily accessed by purchasing her books. There is no hidden secrets here, it’s all available to you to make the decision to take your health into your own hands.
As well, if you book a Free Discovery Session, I am happy to look to see if I can find a story of a person/family with similar symptoms, who has recovered or improved their conditions using the GAPS Protocol. I find it very humbling to be able to inspire others with testimonials from people who have seen improved health in multiple areas of their lives!
