An Overview of the GAPS Diet: FREE Video Series

Note from Jennifer: Lauren from Mindful Mama is back with this fantastic presentation on the Gut and Psychology Syndrome healing protocol. If you missed her family’s GAPS success story, you can find it here.

The GAPS diet has offered our family much-needed hope when we were stuck (and getting sicker) in our current state of health trying to eat real food.

After spending some time with a GAPS practitioner in our area, we decided we desperately needed a condensed and accurate overview of the GAPS diet protocol to offer to those who wanted to learn more.

So I went to work digging through once again Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride’s incredible work on GAPS in her book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome.

This one hour presentation is a compilation of the information I gathered and presented to about 30 people interested in the GAPS protocol.

This mini-seminar addresses the importance of our beneficial flora, the health problems that stem from gut dysbiosis (overgrowth of harmful pathogens in the gut), and an overview of what the diet consists of.


I hope with this work is that it is a useful visual/audio tool for those who want desperately to wrap their brains around this intense healing protocol…and see if they need to implement it in their own lives.

Apart from the great insight she’s gained into the failure of modern medicine, through her nursing experience, Lauren has the privilege of walking with couples through labor as a birth doula.

She will start a Nutritional Therapy program in September 2013 to get a more comprehensive view of natural health, in order to provide those in her life with the most solid health counsel possible.

Lauren and her husband (a counselor) are planning on moving their family to Thailand in a couple of years to enter into missions work. Additionally, they will counsel people from a truly holistic model, addressing the emotional/spiritual/health aspects of overall well being.

Lauren is completely in her niche when she has the opportunity to teach woman more of what it looks like to be a Mindful Mama.

  • Sadly I could not listen to these videos as the sound recording is of very poor quality and after 30 seconds I gave up!
    The reason I would liked to have watched them is that I am setting out on my second attempt of GAPS as I have Dyspraxia, IBS, Asthma and numerous other symptoms: but being Dyspraxic, I need the sound quality to be perfect to be able to listen …
    I hope others are more tolerant and benefit from these vids!

    • I’m sorry to hear that, Amanda. If you are unable to tolerate GAPS, I would suggest looking into the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol. I use it in my practice with a rotation diet and some of the food prep and gut healing principles from the GAPS diet. All of these are symptoms that can be reversed, so I wish you the very best of luck!
