Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet has helped so many people with not only digestive issues but with allergies, skin problems, mental health and others. I put my children on GAPS diet last year in hopes that it will cure their allergies and Eczema. They are still on a modified full GAPS diet and they need constant gut health balancing. The ongoing needs for the balancing is a reminder how fragile our GI tract is and how it creates so many health issues if not healed properly.
Raine Irving Saunders, one of the past guests on past Wellness Wednesday, shared her story on how her mental health improved dramatically on the GAPS diet and it’s another case just how powerful the diet is for all kinds of health problems, including mental health.
GAPS diet is not easy because of its restricted foods you are allowed to eat and how they have to be prepared. And understandably so since damaged gut can not digest food or absorb nutrients properly, hence, allowing only easily digestible foods, prepared in a certain way. But one person who makes it look so easy is Chloe Breczinski of How We Flourish.
Chloe has been on GAPS diet since beginning of 2015. Initially, her husband started the diet and Chloe decided to accompany him on the journey to make meal planning easier. But she noticed a dramatic improvement on her own health so she stayed with the diet although her husband quit. She learned how challenging it was to be on the diet but she found ways to make it easier. Thus, she is writing a book called, Healing Patiently (You can pre-order here) on how to manage and heal patiently on the GAPS diet.
