Using the GAPS Diet
A comprehensive introduction and 175 tasty recipes to help you gain control of your health and intestinal flora.
In recent years, gut health has become a hot topic and researchers have discovered that our physical and mental well-being depends to a large extent on the condition of our intestinal flora. “Gut and psychology syndrome” — or GAPS — is a generic term used for a range of modern chronic diseases that have their roots in compromised intestinal flora.
Following the GAPS diet can help many of us who are living with chronic diseases and diagnoses, including diabetes, behavioral disorders, depression and excess weight, to improve our overall health and wellness.
The GAPS diet distinguishes itself from other diets, which merely subdue symptoms, by healing your gut and freeing you from dependence on medication.
If you are a “Gapsist” — someone who is following the GAPS diet — this book will be your best friend in the kitchen, guiding you through the different phases of the diet and providing you with delicious homemade recipes that are sugar-free and starch-free, both for every day and for special occasions.
