Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, MMedSci (neurology), MMedSci (human nutrition) created the GAPS™ Nutritional Protocol, abbreviated from Gut and Psychology Syndrome in 2004, after working with hundreds of children and adults with neurological and psychiatric conditions (autism, ADHD, dyslexia and OCD). Over time the conditions have extended to incorporate Gut and Physiology Syndrome as autoimmunity begins in the gut. The digestive system, the brain and the immune system are all connected. The following conditions are the most common autoimmune conditions: rheumatoid arthritis, MS, type 1 diabetes, coeliac disease, thyroid disease and lupus. For a better understanding of the diet, please read Dr. Campbell-McBride's book "Gut and Psychology Syndrome".
In May, 2015, Priscilla was fortunate enough to be selected to attend the GAPS™ Practitioner training course in Sydney. Dr. Campbell-McBride herself presented the course. Her extensive wealth of knowledge she has gained through many years and many patients has inspired Priscilla to concentrate her time in digestive health. Priscilla uses many of the GAPS protocols in her consults, including bone broths and fermented foods.
