What is the Gaps Diet?

Print Friendly

We have all heard of, read of, know friends or family members with disorders such as autism, dyspraxia, A.D.D.,A.D.H.D.,schizophrenia, dyslexia and depression. We know how heart wrenching, and how devastating these types of disorders can be and how little hope there is for effective  treatment for them. I once had a family member that had a never ending problem with depression and I know from personal experience how devastating that disorder can be. I can only imagine the heartbreak of having a child or grandchild with one of these conditions and not being able to get effective treatment for it.

I have been reading a lot lately and sometimes when I am looking for information about one thing I run across something entirely different. That was the case a couple of days ago when I read about a doctor that specialized in these disorders and used a very different approach than the norm. There had been other information that I had read that hinted of benefits from a somewhat similar approach so I wasn’t surprised to read this. When you are on a journey you will pass many other paths and if you follow them you never know where they may lead you. If we take a too narrowly focused look, we may overlook something very worthwhile that we would otherwise pass right by. I am always open to something new, something heretofore unknown. When I found this information I knew that it was something I needed to share with you my readers.

The book is Gut and Psychology
Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, A.D.D., Dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Depression, Schizophrenia  by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.The book is available from Amazon and there are 133 reviews there and all but eight are four or five star and most are fives. The reviews tell of many conditions that were helped or eliminated by the use of Dr. Campbell-McBride’s Gaps Diet.

Rather than write an article myself about the Gaps Diet; I would like to refer you to one on Nourish Kitchen dot com by Kevin. It is an excellent article and very informative. Here is the link.

Thanks for visiting, you are always welcome here. May you and yours have a healthy and happy day.       David Johnson

  1. Thanks for sharing this information David. I hope it will be of help to your readers. They are saying that children born with an autism spectrum disorder is on the rise. Just one more piece of proof that what is a healthy, nourishing diet is important and needs to be re-evaluated.

    • Thanks, you are so right Sandy. It is a shame that some parents of kids with autism spend years in the system trying to find a solution to the child’s problems and never find it. Luckily some look outside of the mainstream and often find something that works, proper nutrition and/or the eliminations of additives and toxins from the diet. Often it is not just the affected child that has a problem but the whole family, to some extent. If the mother suffers from poor nutrition, poor intestinal flora, a weak immune system or a build up of toxins in her body she can not pass on to the child what the child needs to prosper.
