Dr. Campbell-McBride’s GAPS Diet is a powerful healing system ideal for children who have any of the following:
- Seriously picky eating habits with health challenges.
- “Food addictions” to dairy, gluten, and processed junk foods.
- “Leaky gut” resulting in food allergies and food intolerances.
- Overgrowth of yeast or of bad bacteria in their intestines (or anywhere in body).
- Developmental delays or “failure to thrive”.
- Skin problems like Eczema, Psoriasis, or breakouts.
- Constipation, loose stools, or Irritable Bowel.
- ADD/ADHD and trouble concentrating, focusing, and learning.
The GAPS diet is a very specific eating program which heals the gut and immune system. It’s based on real whole foods, grain-free diet, rich in healing fats, and contains specific carbohydrates that are most gentle on the intestinal tract.
