Support Meetings the first and third Tuesday of the month at 6pm.
We are hosting Gut and Psychology/Physiology (GAPS) support meetings twice a month where we will discuss and answer questions for anyone doing or interested in doing the GAPS diet.
Gut and Psychology/Physiology Syndrome (GAPS) is a condition which establishes a connection between the digestive system and the brain and tissues of the body including the brain and central nervous system.? This term was created by Dr. Natasha Campbell?McBride, MD, MMedSci (neurology), MMedSci (human nutrition) in 2004 after successfully treating hundreds of children and adults with neurological and psychiatric conditions, such as autistic spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD?ADD), schizophrenia, dyslexia, dyspraxia, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder and other neuro-psychological and psychiatric problems.
A growing body of research is showing that unbalanced gut bacteria can have a damaging effect on the entire body. When the gut flora is compromised toxicity can build up in the intestines and spill into the bloodstream. These toxins can be neurotoxic and can overwhelm the detoxification pathways and the immune system. The toxins can spread throughout the body and cause damage to the central and peripheral nervous system, organs, joints, or any number of tissues. This can set up an autoimmune condition, mental/emotional symptoms, or physical symptoms.
