Certified GAPS Practitioner Consultations
Most often people discover the GAPS Protocol after already exhausting their resources with different diets or commercial mainstream approaches to relieve and manage their conditions.
We understand beginning GAPS for the first time may feel overwhelming. We can teach you how to get started and how to apply the program for fussy eaters.
If you are ready to make a life changing decision for your health and/or your family's health, and are prepared to apply a full commitment to the GAPS Program then let's get started! Book your initial consultation today.
Duration: 1 hour 30 mins Cost: $180
During the initial consultation we will take a thorough history of your symptoms and explore how they are specifically related to Gut and Psychology Syndrome to design appropriate steps for diet intervention.
With a full comprehensive GAPS Orientation, you will gain a better understanding of the GAPS three part protocol, where to access GAPS food and resources, how to prepare and plan GAPS staple food prior to starting the program and what you will expect to experience during the program.
Homework tasks will be set at this consultation so that appropriate food preparation and supplies are in good order before the second consultation where plans will be discussed for diet implementation.
Follow Up Consultation
Duration: 1/2 hour or 1 hour appointments available Cost: $70 - $135
In these sessions we will ensure that you have successfully prepared the foods and resources required to start the diet and discuss your individual intervention strategies and modifications required to implement the diet according to your needs. You will effectively learn how to travel through each stage of the diet, how to manage your symptoms and when to move from one stage to the next.
Gut and psychology syndrome (GAPS)
The gut microbiome plays an important role in human health and scientists are finding out more about the importance of this ‘organ’. The gut microbiome plays a large role in the human physiology and pathology (Changing Habits, 2015). Voreades et al. (2014) stated that the absence of robust microbiome result in defects within development and regulation of the immune system. Therefore, individuals with poor gut microbiome will experience issues with immune function, food metabolism, intestinal integrity, and brain function (Changing Habits, 2015). On the other hand individuals with a healthy gut microbiome will experience optimal health.
Individuals who have GAPS experience a vast array of health problems such as diabetes, epilepsy, depression, anxiety, over weight and/or underweight, schizophrenia, bi polar, irritable bowel, autism, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, fussy eaters, dyspraxia, high cholesterol, thyroid issues, heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke, angina, chrons, FPIES, eczema, asthma, cystitis, eating disorders, celiac disease, constipation, diarrhoea, learning difficulties, social problems, eating disorders, obssessive compulsive disorders, substance abuse, and so on.
In a nutshell, all illness occurs because of our gut health. To heal the gut we must take steps to heal and seal the gut lining. The aim is to change the environment of our gut so good bacteria outweigh the bad bacteria. GAPS protocol enables this to occur. Adopting the protocol and working with the practitioner enables individuals to gain a deep understanding of what is happening for them.
