details: The Gut & Psychology/Physiology Syndrome (GAPS) describes the connection between how our physical and mental health is dependent on the health of our digestive tract and the micro-organisms contained within it. GAP Syndrome is the underlying cause to an outstanding number of diseases including: ADHD, autism, anxiety, depression, arthritis, lupus, allergies, eczema, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, gluten-sensitivity, constipation, acid reflux, and more. These are the people that fall into the gap of modern medical knowledge and have limited success with nearly every standard treatment out there. Naturopathic Doctor and Certified GAPS Practitioner, Kathryn Doran-Fisher will explain what is GAPS and describe the GAPS nutritional plan with specific supplementation to heal the lining of the digestive tract and allow the body’s elimination systems to function properly.
