I am also a Certified GAP’s Practitioner.

As a qualified Gut and Psychology Syndrome practitioner, I trained with Dr Natasha in the UK in March 2015.  Now, I consult with families or individuals in person, or on Skype.  This can be if you are looking for help, support or guidance on using the GAPS protocol at home:

GAPS consultation fee is a fixed hourly rate.  (The initial consultation can take anywhere between 2 and 4 hours – depending on the complexity of the person.  All follow up consultations or check in calls are charged at the same flat rate, but will take less time).

I have experience with working with adults with digestive and mental health problems, through to families with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  The GAPS protocol is a tried and tested method to work on healing the digestive system and as we now know from recently discoveries this has a huge connection with brain function.

There is a testimonial below from a family I have worked with explaining a little about their personal experience.

If you are thinking of having a consultation and would like to discuss this further, we can arrange a free 15 minute chat to discuss your needs and how can could work together.

As researched by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride 
We are living in an age of epidemics and we hear all about cancer, obesity, diabetes, dementia and how more and more people are being diagnosed with these modern diseases.  But why are more and more children being born with or developing ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), Autism, Asperger’s, glue ear, eczema and asthma, dyslexia and dyspraxia, eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, constant infections, chronic diseases and digestive issues including ongoing constipation or diarrhoea?

There is a large percentage of children with allergies and asthma who are also dyspraxic and hyperactive.  There is also an approximate 30-50% overlap between ADHD and dyslexia. Now we are seeing more children who suffer from severe eczema in infancy can go on to develop autistic features later in life. Natasha Campbell-McBride, the founder of GAPS uncovered this information and more during her years of research.  You can learn more about Dr Natasha by clicking here

The Connection?

So is there a connection somewhere – or is it just chance happenings? What can we do now in this modern life of technology to help children or adults when they suffer from any of these conditions?

The GAPS approach addresses the link between the gut (digestive system) and behavioural and physical symptoms.  Not only will a child or adult with one of the above-mentioned issues have gut problems, but it is likely that at least one parent will too.

In the GAPS protocol, we look at the whole picture – food and intolerance to toxicity from heavy metals, a disruption of bacteria and Candida/Fungus. This method is built around in depth research to improve the beneficial gut flora and heal the digestive system which so essential to immunity, mental health and absorption of nutrients.

These are just a few of the pictures taken of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride talking at the launch of the Gut and Psychology Syndrome book in Spain.  In May 2017, I had the privilege of listening and talking with Dr. Natasha at this event.  I invited one of the families I have been working with using the GAPS protocol for over a year.  They have had some amazing results for their son who has autism, which they shared with the group.

GAPS Testimonial ~

I am the father of a 6-year-old little boy diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder, ASD. When he was a baby his development was normal until he was about to turn 2 years old.  We noticed that he stopped talking and started to go backwards in his development, getting some of the typical characteristics of ASD. However, he had not all the symptoms. We decided to put our little Ángel on a dairy-free diet at the age of 3 and his development increased dramatically and then he went onto a plateau.  At the age of 5 we decided to begin with a gluten-free diet and again he improved a lot and then reached a plateau.

Then thanks to one of those wonderful “coincidences” of life, the GAPS Book written by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride came to us, and the book seemed to describe the whole digestive life of our son.  We looked for GAPS therapist and we came across Rebecca.

We are grateful for Rebecca’s dedication as she has been a key player in integrating the GAPS diet into my son’s life. Rebecca has helped, advised, and clarified many doubts among other things.

Honestly, this protocol is very difficult and sometimes you want to throw in the towel, but nevertheless since we started the diet the development of our son has been increasing, we notice a great improvement and every day he gives us a reason to continue with the diet. Our little Ángel has been on this diet for almost half a year and it is the best decision we have made for his development. To all of you who have doubts – I invite you to get in touch with Rebecca to guide you and advise you, she will be able to tell you if you are an ideal candidate for this diet.

Rebecca, our success with our little Ángel is also yours, without you we would not have been able to get where we are.
