No longer on the GAPS Diet?! What?!
Yes, that’s right. The goal of GAPS is to actually get off the diet eventually! While that doesn’t happen for all people, it does for most. Let’s take a closer look at the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet, and then below I’ll give you some resources to help you get started.
What is the GAPS diet?
GAPS stands for Gut And Psychology Syndrome, a phenomenon that’s been known, believe it or not, for decades, but is just becoming more well known in recent years.
The GAPS diet is a specific gut healing diet that is designed to:
- Eliminate inflammation causing gluten and other grains, which inflame the gut
- Eliminate complex carbohydrates, which feed pathogenic bacteria low in the gut
- Include gut and body-nourishing bone broth to repair and rebuild the gut wall
- Include beneficial probiotics in food and in supplements to kill off the pathogenic bacteria and reestablish gut flora with healthy ones
