Gut and Psychology Syndrome includes conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, addictions, depression, OCD, epilepsy, eating disorders and many other conditions that affect the brain. Many of these conditions present themselves with symptoms such as mood alterations, memory and cognitive problems, behavioural and social problems, panic attacks, anxiety, involuntary movements etc.

 

GAPS includes multiple types of chronic physical conditions including autoimmune conditions (celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type one, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, autoimmune skin problems etc.), atopic conditions (asthma, eczema, various allergies), food intolerances, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, PMS and other menstrual problems, endocrine disorder (thyroid, adrenal etc.) , ME, and all digestive disorders (such as IBS – Irritable bowel syndrome, gastritis, colitis).

 

Many conditions do not fit the one box and present as a mixture of symptoms such as digestive problems, fatigue, muscular weakness, cramps and abnormal muscle tone, aches and pain in the joints, skin problems and hormonal abnormalities

In most cases the symptoms from both syndromes overlap, such as people experiencing mental health issues suffering from physical symptoms such as painful joints and muscles, fatigue, skin problems, asthma, hormonal problems and auto-immunity. People suffering from physical conditions can also experience mental health symptoms such as brain fog, depression, inability to concentrate, mood swings sleep abnormalities, anxiety and tremors etc

When the Digestive System Is Unwell Instead Of Being A Source Of Nourishment It Becomes A Major Source Of Toxicity In The Body, Reducing Your Bodies Ability To Function Well.

The GAPS diet was developed by Dr Natasha Campbell McBride. Dr McBride holds a Degree in Medicine and postgraduate degrees in both Neurology and Human Nutrition. Specialising in nutrition for children and adults with behavioural and learning disabilities and adults with digestive and immune disorders has given Dr McBride unparalleled knowledge in the industry.

 

From her studies and experience, Dr McBride believes that the link between physical and mental health and the food and drink we consume to the condition of our digestive system is absolute. The results of her research have gone on to support her position on the subject and provide crucial information for the nutrition and health industries. Her book titled Gut and Psychology Syndrome contains further information valuable to start the GAPS journey.
