Gut & Psychology Syndrome (GAPS)™

More than two thousand years ago, The Father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, stated that all disease begins in the gut.

The more we learn with our current scientific tools, the more we realize just how correct Hippocrates was! Science has discovered that about 90% of all cells and all genetic material of the human body belongs to the gut flora–a mixture of various microbes which live inside our digestive tract.

So, in reality the body is just a 10% shell, providing a habitat for this mass of micro-creatures living inside us. Their role in our psychological and physiological health is monumental. Our modern world poses many dangers for human gut flora; once damaged, the health of the whole body enters a downward slide towards disease.

GAPS: Gut & Psychology Syndrome

Developed by Dr. Natasha-Campbell McBride, GAPS™ (Gut and Psychology/Physiology Syndrome™) is a highly successful, self-help programme, based on a very specific nutritional protocol that has helped thousands of people of all ages improve their health.


Anna’s health counselling is empowering. Her extensive knowledge about nutrition and supplements give me the confidence and inspiration I need to make changes and take control of my health. I trust her direction and advice because of her passion and experience in the field. Most importantly, Anna provides excellent follow-up support, and has never failed to respond (thoroughly!) to any one of my (numerous!) emailed questions. It’s so obvious that she cares for her clients!

Apart from the conditions listed on the front of the book, the GAPS™ nutritional protocol has helped many people with various conditions, including:

  • digestive disorders,
  • autoimmune diseases,
  • eating disorders,
  • epilepsy,
  • failure to thrive,
  • childhood diseases,
  • problems with development, and
  • much more.

In September 2013, I attended an intensive Certified GAPS™ Practitioner training program offered by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, so that I can support individuals wishing to adopt the GAPS™ protocol.
