"The first and immediate aim of the good and great physician, is to restore [her] patient to health in the shortest time, with the smallest amount of medicine, and with the least discomfort practicable. When this is accomplished, [she] has a more elevated ambition; an object nobler and still more humane presses upon [her] attention - THE PREVENTION OF ALL DISEASES. It is hard enough to get along in this world when a man is well; but to have to make a living under the depressing influence of sickness, and pain, and suffering, is worse than having to climb a steep clay bank in wet weather. Old age is comfortless enough of itself; but to be old, and full of aches and pains, and gout and rheumatism, is dreadful to think of. To prevent the young from getting sick, to enable all to grow old gracefully, with a heart full of the milk of human kindness, a genial smile and a pleasant word for everybody, and to go down to the grave "like as a shock of corn fully ripe in his season," - these are the main objects...

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

GAPS Nutritional Protocol
The Gut & Psychology/Physiology Syndrome (GAPS) describes the connection between how our physical and mental health is dependent on the health of our digestive tract and the micro-organisms contained within it. GAP Syndrome is the underlying cause to an outstanding number of diseases including: ADHD, autism, anxiety, depression, arthritis, lupus, allergies, eczema, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, gluten-sensitivity, constipation, acid reflux, and more. These are the people that fall into the gap of modern medical knowledge and have limited success with nearly every standard treatment out there. Through assessment, Kathryn will determine the extent of gut dysbiosis in your body, explain to you in simple terms how that gut dysbiosis is connected to your individual symptoms, and describe the GAPS nutritional plan. You will receive a detailed GAPS report with local resources and support as well as specific supplementation that will help you heal the lining of your digestive tract and allow your body's elimination systems to function properly.

Gut & Psychology/Physiology Syndrome
Probiotics and Gut Disorders
The Big FAT Lie
Charting Our Fertility and Herbs for Women
The precipitous rise in food intolerances and digestive disorders over the past few years is a clear and inevitable consequence of our overuse of antibiotics over the last century. We are destroying our indigenous gut bacteria and breeding super-pathogens. And the most common treatment suggested for this gut dysbiosis... is more antibiotics. While avoidance diets such as going gluten-free or dairy-free may offer some relief, avoiding is not healing. We need to address the cause. We need to stop abusing antibiotics for every cough, ear ache and sniffle. We need to understand the important role that beneficial bacteria play in our digestive tracts. And we need to bring traditional fermented foods back into our daily diets so that we can hope to reverse this trend.
The Gut & Psychology/Physiology Syndrome (GAPS) describes the connection between how our physical and mental health is dependent on the health of our digestive tract and the micro-organisms contained within it. GAP Syndrome is the underlying cause to an outstanding number of diseases including: ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, autism, schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, arthritis, lupus, allergies, eczema, psoriasis, Diabetes, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, irritable bowel, celiac, gluten-sensitivity, constipation, hemorrhoids, colitis, acid reflux, and more. These are the people that fall into the gap of modern medical knowledge and have limited success with nearly every standard treatment out there. Based on the work of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride who works with thousands of GAPS patients around the globe the GAPS program has three main components; the GAPS nutritional plan, specific supplementation, and ways to detoxify the body. Most important is the GAPS Diet which heals the lining of the digestive tract and allows the body's elimination systems to function properly. Through this clients around the world have been able to return to an optimum level of health.
