GAPS Diet Overview

Written by Olivia Cerf, spechner.

The GAPS Diet, short for The Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet, is a diet discovered and developed by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. She found a significant connection between brain function and the gut. Through the GAPS diet, patients follow a strict diet, avoiding foods that feed on bad bacteria, and add ample amounts of probiotics to heal their gut and surpress symptoms of neurological and psychiatric conditions such as ADHD, bipolar, autism, schizophrenia, and Depression. Although the GAPS diet focuses on brain function, following this diet can also benefit anyone suffering from poor stomach function.

The GAPS diet has 3 main principles:

1. Healing the Gut: This is the main concept of the GAPS diet. Through the strict diet, and avoidance of foods that feed on bad bacteria, the gut has time to heal and rid itself of harmful bacteria that is flourishing in the gut. It’s important to consume foods that nourish the gut and contribute to the creation of healthy flora.

2. Beneficial Bacteria: Part of the healing process is adding essential probiotics back into the gut to prevent future health conditions and allow the gut to become stronger. While starving the gut of bad bacteria, it’s important to stay away from foods that encourage the growth of bad bacteria, and support the growth of new, good bacteria. This step is about repopulating the gut with essential bacteria.

3. Eliminating Toxins: Toxins in the body can alter the brain function, only contributing to mental challenges. Elimination of toxins is also achieved through the strict diet. Consuming foods that are easy to digest, and drinking fresh juice helps eliminate toxins from the body. Strengthening the gut is an essential part of the healing process.

I love the GAPS Diet! My whole family (my husband, myself, and 7 children) have been eating this way for a year and a half and we feel GREAT! I think it's the diet of all diets--and I think there is a lot of hope for many people facing many different kinds of illnesses....they just need to give it a TRY! :)
