Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS)

Summer is proud to be the longest-practicing Certified GAPS Practitioner (CGP) in the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon.  She began encorporating this powerful healing modality into her nutritional therapy practice even before the CGP credential existed, and she was part of the first class of CGPs to train and certify with GAPS founder, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.  Summer herself has experienced deep healing through using the diet, supplementation and detoxification recomended by the Gut and Psychology Syndrome protocol.  Read on for more information about what GAPS is and who the protocol can benefit. If you think that you might be a good candidate for the GAPS healing protocol, contact Summer to schedule an in-person, telephone or Skype consultation to learn more about incorporating GAPS into your life. 

What is GAPS, or Gut and Psychology Syndrome?

Did you know that your digestive track comprises up to 80% of your immune system?  This is one of the reasons why what we eat and drink plays such a vital role in the condition of not only our digestive systems, but of our overall health.  GAP Syndrome establishes a connection between the health of the gut and the strength of the rest of the body.

GAPS Success Stories:

Summer has been very helpful in supporting me as I continue on the GAPS diet. All the questions  and issues that are bound to come up have been addressed by Summer. Her knowledge and gentle support has been invaluable. I’ve been following the GAPS diet for 2 years and as a result of this and Summer’s helpful expertise, my overall health has dramatically improved. Significantly, my chronic herpes is much more manageable as a result of the GAPS diet. Thank you Summer, I am grateful."
