To quote Natasha Campbell-McBride
“The purpose of the treatment is to detoxify the person, to lift the toxic fog off the brain to allow it to develop and function properly. In order to achieve that we need to clean up and heal the digestive tract, so it stops being the major source of toxicity in the body and becomes the source of nourishment, as it is supposed to be. As more than 90% of everything toxic floating in our blood (and getting into the brain) comes from the gut, healing it will drop the level of toxicity in the body dramatically.
This target is achieved by means of The Nutritional Programme. This programme has evolved through the personal experience with my own family and clinical experience with thousands of GAPS children and adults around the world.
What does this programme involve?
The Nutritional Programme for Gut And Psychology Syndrome
1. Diet. GAPS conditions are essentially digestive disorders. The digestive system is a long tube; what you fill that tube with has a direct effect on its well-being. That is why the diet is the most important and the number one treatment. Everything else takes a second place.
3. Detoxification and life-style changes.”
