Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) – What is GAPS?

In this video, Dr Natasha Campbell McBride – author of Gut And Psychology Syndrome talks about her personal experience as the mother of an autistic child and how the GAPS protocol can help heal psychological and physiological disease.
 
This from the transcript of Part 1 of 3 videos. Here is the link to part 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epkFl5qaYEU
 
Dr. McBride: It is a personal story like with many other mainstream doctors. In order for us to move into the alternative field we have to have some personal reason for it.
 
My first child was diagnosed autistic at the age of 3. That threw me into a very steep learning curve when I discovered that my own profession had nothing to offer my child.
 
As a result of that search as of now he’s a healthy young adult with no traces of autism left. He’s leading a normal life. He’s driving a car. He’s got a girlfriend. He’s going to university. So everything is absolutely fine.
 
As that start learning curve progressed, GAPS got developed, gut and psychology syndrome. As the name implies it establishes a connection between the functioning of the digestive system and the functioning of the brain in the person because that contact is very, very tight. What’s happening in the digestive system doesn’t just affect the brain. It affects everything else in the body.
 
So the second part of GAPS syndrome has gut and physiology syndrome which includes all sorts of physical conditions such as autoimmunity, multiple sclerosis and diabetes type 1, and rheumatoid arthritis includes the diseases of low energy, supply low energy production such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and allergies and all types of arthritis and all sorts of other physical conditions.
 
When we talk about gut and psychology syndrome we talk about the function of the brain. Here we talk about autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia and dyspraxia and various other mixtures of learning behavioral and social problems in children and adults. That also includes psychiatric conditions such as bipolar disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder in schizophrenia and eating disorders and addictions and epilepsy.
 
So when we talk about gut and psychology and gut and physiology syndrome we talk about the roots of our health because the roots of the human health are embedded in the digestive tract.
 
It’s a digestive tract that feeds us and nurtures us and nourishes us and looks after us. In these people (GAPS people) because they develop abnormal gut flora their digestive system instead of being a source of nourishment for them becomes a major source of toxicity in the body.
 
Foods don’t get digested properly so the person develops multiple nutritional deficiencies. The gut lining itself deteriorates becomes porous and leaky and lets through partially digested foods When this partially digested foods are found in the bloodstream by the immune system, the immune system attacks them it recognizes them as foreign substances.
 
The person starts developing food allergies and intolerances to all sorts of foods. It’s not due to the problem with the food itself is due to the fact that their gut lining is like a sieve.
 
So the treatment has to be focusing on the gut lining on healing and sealing the gut lining. In these people their gut flora gets taken over by pathogenic microbes: pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi, worms, parasites all sorts of things.
 
These pathogens digest food that comes home in their own way converting it into hundreds and hundreds of very toxic substances. These toxic substances are absorbed through the damaged gut lining into the bloodstream and get distributed around the body.
 
When they get in the brain they impair the brain function. When they get into joints they cause arthritis. If they get into lungs they would cause some other disease if they get into your skin they can go psoriasis eczema or any other disease of the skin. Whatever they get to they cause trouble around the body. So that’s what in essence GAPS is.
 
In the next few weeks I will post the following videos:
 
Part 2
Dr. Natasha explains when you should see a mainstream doctor and how the body can kickstart its own healing process for many degenerative diseases – even when things seem hopeless.
 
Part 3
Dr. Natasha talks about the healing wisdom of our bodies.
 
It is my desire to follow the GAPS diet for nutritional healing of the gut and therefore the brain and the rest of the body. I will also use the macros of the Ketogenic diet to control body fat. Thank you for reading my Posts. It will be an interesting journey.

All Diseases Begin in the Gut – Hippocrates, 460-370 BC

Growing up I had to work extra hard to get over my mild case of dyslexia.  I would read the same few words over and over again and I would not understand what I read. It is a relief to know that my diet may have caused the problem.

Since I read Dr. McBride’s book, I have changed my diet dramatically. My dyslexia has much improved. Now, I enjoy reading and understanding what I am reading. Thank you Dr. McBride.

The following information is from her book: Gut and Psychology Syndrome.

 GAPS (Gut Psychology Syndrome) children and adults have digestive problems, sometimes quite severe.

 GAPS is a natural treatment for colic, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation, feeding difficulties and malnourishment, all to various degrees, are a typical part of autism, schizophrenia and other GAPS conditions.

In the majority of cases digestive problems start at weaning time or times when breast milk gets replaced with formula milk and other foods get introduced. In those cases where an adult did not have a history of gut problems from childhood the digestive problems would start later in life due to some health-damaging event.

The second year of life is the time when many autistic GAPS and non-autistic GAPS children start developing fussy eating habits. Many GAPS children and adults prefer processed carbohydrates to the exclusion of everything else. They will only eat starchy and sweet foods: breakfast cereals, chips, popcorn, cakes, biscuits, sweets, bananas, bread, rice, sweet yoghurts.

There is an established a hypothesis of gut-brain connection. It backed by very serious scientific findings, which Dr. Natasha McBride discusses in her book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome.

There is much less published scientific data on gut problems in ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, asthma, allergy, eczema and other GAPS conditions. However, when it comes to clinical observations almost all children and adults with GAPS have digestive problems to various degrees.

Many patients have typical symptoms of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome): abdominal pain, bloating, stool abnormalities and flatulence. Some may have normal stools, but complain about malnutrition, reflux, “heartburn”, abdominal pains and flatulence.

Healing your gut with the GAPS diet.

 

I grew up with learning issues. I now know what I was eating was contributing to my foggy brain. Dr. McBride taught me that the GAPS diet that would help me lift that fog.

The following is condensed from the video link: The Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Healthy Gut, healthy Human, 14 min short clip

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekI4Y2OBRuw&index=6&list=PLscfI1gIXYSq8Q7vFjFv0wUFYoOdEnerX

Health - Gaps Conference 2016 - Dr. Natasha McBride

Every illness – whether it is mental, or physical – begins in the digestive system of the human being.

GAPS – Gut and Psychology, and Gut and Physiology Syndrome established a connection between the state of the gut and the health of the rest of the body.

Recent research has discovered that 90% of all cells – in your body – is your gut flora.

Your gut flora protects your gut from any invader from the outside. Be it a microbe, be it a worm, or be it a toxin, a chemical. If it is a cancer-causing chemical … these microbes have an ability to neutralise these chemicals.

Microbes are all controlling each other, so not one of them can overgrow, get out of control, and start causing damage.

When we take antibiotics we kill off a large part of that harmony. So what’s left there, suddenly, is not controlled anymore. We have an imbalance.

Most industrial food is full of antibiotics.

Meat, industrially produced.

Fish, industrially produced.

Eggs, milk, vegetables, fruit, grains, beans – everything is grown with substances, which have antibiotic properties.

Most pesticides are antibiotics.

Every time we are eating non-organic food, we are taking in antibiotics.

What can damage our gut flora?

What can damage our gut flora?
* Anitbiotics
* Steroids, The Pill
* Other drugs
* Stress
* Poor Diet
* Infections
* Disease
* Bottle Feeding
* Old Age
* Pollution
* Alcohol
* Toxic Chemicals
* Dental Work

When people destroy their gut flora – usually with antibiotics – they develop anaemia:

They become pale, pasty, their energy goes down.

And they can’t tolerate stress and pressure.

They continue being anaemic until we restore the gut flora of the person.

In my (Dr. Natasha McBride) clinic, I’ve worked with thousands of autistic children, almost 100% of the mothers have abnormal gut flora.

What do we need to do with this child?

We need to change the gut flora. And once that source of toxicity stops, the brain cleans up.

The human brain has its own detoxification system, Microglia.

It’ will clean itself up and it will start functioning.

The toxic fog disappears and from that moment on the child learns.

So, if the child is two years old, three years old, we can pull the child out of autism 100%.

[Dr. McBride healed her own son of autism with the GAPS diet.]

GAPS people have an abnormal digestive system.

An unhealthy digestive system doesn’t produce enough serotonin or dopamine.

So these children grew up being depressed most of their life.

These children use reckless behaviour to get a spike of serotonin or dopamine, just to feel alive.

In order to help these children, we need to heal their gut.

Autoimmunity – ALL autoimmunity is born in the gut.

Every autoimmune disease is a digestive disorder, whether it is rheumatoid arthritis, or lupus, or psoriasis, or multiple sclerosis, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or anything else.

Our major immunologists in the world are now confirming this fact, in the last few years.

Focus on normalising your gut flora and you will change the very basis of your immune function in the body, and the immune system will start working properly in the body.

The majority of GAPS children and adults are fussy eaters.

More than 90% of children with learning disabilities have this problem, and they limit their food to sweet and starchy foods. As a result a drug is produced in their digestive system by their abnormal gut flora.

The drug is sugar.

The drug is wheat.

The drugs are those biscuits, and cakes and crackers that they are eating and the breakfast cereal they are eating.

These are the foods we avoid, because the human digestive system has not been designed to digest them well, and we get virtually no useful nutrition from them.

* All grains
* Starchy vegetables
* Sugar, other commercial sweeteners
* Milk sugar Lactose
* Starchy beans including soy
* All processed foods
* All food additives

These are the recommended foods; that is what we are actually eating on the program.

* All meats cooks from fresh or frozen
* All fish cooked from fresh or frozen
* Organ meats
* Good quality eggs
* Non-starch vegetables
* All ripe fruit including dried fruit
* Nuts and seeds
* Fermented foods: dairy, vegetables, etc.
* Cold extracted honey

These are the foods the human digestive system can break down well, and they are the basis of building our human bodies.

Meat and fish stock provide glucosamine, collagen in large amounts, gelatine, and other things.

These foods provide all the necessary building materials for your gut wall to give birth to trillions of new cells.

In that way it rebuilds itself.

The only fat suitable for human physiology, is animal fat.

Vegetable oils, cooking oils, are poisonous. Nobody should be eating them, nobody should be cooking with them.

We need natural fats.
* All animal fats
* Butter and ghee
* Coconut oil and palm oil
* Cold pressed virgin olive oil
AVOID ALL MARGARINES, BUTTER REPLACEMENTS, VEGETABLE OILS AND COOKING OILS

The detox system recovers. In more than 85% of these children, when we retest a year later – lead is gone, mercury is gone and we didn’t have to chelate.

You can start from the Full GAPS Diet.

The Full GAPS Diet gives you a longer list of ingredients to play with, and you can eat out.

You can eat in good quality restaurants while on the Full GAPS Diet.

Many people achieve a lot of healing and recover completely. Just on the Full GAPS Diet.

But if you have some symptoms, which are just not going – you’ve achieved a lot of healing, but some things are just still left behind – do the Introduction Diet at home, and you will get rid of those remaining symptoms.

MUSCLE LOSS: At about age 35, without an appropriate exercise stimulus, you will start to lose about 1 pound of muscle per year.

Health - Exercise McGuff Bending the Aging Curve - Longetivity PDF

The Super-slow High-Intensity exercise program is a basic program that can work for any goal that you’re looking for. It works for everyone from athletes to seniors.

The following is condensed from:BODY BY SCIENCE 6 (CONSIDERATIONS FOR ATHLETES AND SENIORS)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSGCcjCjAlk

The final chapter of the book, Body By Science, discusses this form of exercise for seniors because of any group of people that can benefit most from this type of exercise its seniors. Seniors have been badly victimized by our traditional notions of exercise. We treat them as if they are fragile, as if the adaptive response for exercising them is somehow compromised and it’s notIt is intact all the way to age 100 and beyond and we were fearful of having them exert themselves forcefully. Yet we will turn around and have them do a form of exercise that is significantly less intense. But when you investigate the type of exercise they’re doing, whether it’s aerobics or being on a stepper or going walking what we find is the intensity is low but the cumulative forces are large and the acute forces are also large and it puts them at risk for injury.

What they need is a low force form of exercise that’s ferociously hard that will cause them to reclaim their muscle massbecause if you look at what can go wrong as you age starting atabout age 35 without an appropriate exercise stimulus you will start to lose about 1 pound of muscle per year of life. Well the elderly have simply more time to accumulate this muscle loss.

Once you have muscle loss, a whole other series of things starts to cascade:

  • Your cardiovascular system no longer has as much tissue to have to provide support for, so it starts to decline.
  • Your bone mass is very much predicated on your muscle mass so osteoporosis sets in.
  • Your gastrointestinal transit time is directly proportionate muscle mass as that starts to decline.
  • You start have problems with constipation.
  • You develop diverticulitis.
  • You’re at risk for colon cancer.

Every single negative health aspect that can be associated with aging can be backtracked to a loss of muscle mass. That’s the bad news.

The good news is, is the adaptive response to intense exercise is still present and it can be delivered to the elderly in a very safe manner that doesn’t cause them to occur incur excess force. We have an eighty three-year-old gentleman in our facility, who suffers from a genetic type of arthritis called Ankylosing Spondylitis.  Most people his age that have that disorder are wheelchair-bound.  Mr. Davis is stronger than the average 20 year old we bring in off the street for an introductory workout. He’s chest pressing close to 300 pounds. He does our compound row machine with 320.  He’s into the 700s on the leg press at age 83.

So the process is still intact for reclaiming strength and muscle mass and elderly people and they are the ones that have the most to benefit from it and that’s kind of how we tie the book up is with them as an emphasis because despite the title of the book which makes it seem directed towards the bodybuilding audience the book is really dedicated towards a broad audience and our emphasis is particularly on the people that have the most to gain from it which elderly but it really truly is for everyoneand it really can bring exercise back to a rational scientific basis of producing results for yourself.

Refer to the last few weeks blogs for demonstrations of the Super-Slow High-Intensity exercise program.

 

I highly recommend Dr. Doug McGuff’s book https://www.amazon.ca/Body-Science-Research-St…/…/0071597174

The Science of Fat Loss Part 2

Doug McGuff, MD is co-author with John Little of the book “Body By Science”.  Here is Part 2, last week was Part 1of the 2 part presentation.

In Part 1, Doug McGuff, MD described the actual science underlying how the human body loses body fat, providing a summary of the key points of Chapter 9 of “Body By Science.”  In case you missed it, here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzA-E8zb-Ds 

BODY BY SCIENCE 5 (The Science Of Fat Loss — Part 2)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToGt_GYCUmY

In Part 2, Doug McGuff, MD, discusses the facts underlying an effective fat loss program and the role of high-intensity strength training in making the process more effective. This is the conclusion of a two-part video based on the content of Chapter 9 of “Body By Science”.

Here is the transcript so you can follow along.

Dr. McGuff: We need to think of this problem (of obesity) as a tub overflowing. One way to approach the problem is to return to a diet that’s more similar to what we would hunt and gather, which is going to be lean meats fibrous vegetables and fruits that don’t have a real high sugar content. What it’s not going to be as any refined carbohydrate that has to be ground up and turned into flour that produces quick and high spikes and blood sugar. So if we refine our diet to be more of a natural one, more like we would experience with hunting and gathering then with this tub overflowing what the diet represents is turning off the faucet.

The other half of the equation that’s missing with that and where exercise becomes gistic (relating to bodily movements) for that is to unplug. The way we do that is by taking the largest glucose reservoir in your body (muscles) and emptying it out of glucose.

So that creates a need for more glucose to be moved into the cell, which creates more insulin receptors on the surface of the muscle cell and makes you more insulin sensitive. When that happens your serum insulin levels drop and it drops into the single digits, which then becomes permissive for fat loss. And then at that level when your serum insulin levels are under control your body auto regulates very well towards being lean, which is its natural state. We have a genotype a genetic code that’s in us that is an active genotype and when you are in the correct hormonal environment it does auto regulate towards leanness. If you look at hunter-gatherer groups around the world they are all very lean. Even traditional Inuit Eskimos who eat a diet of pure fat have a body fat on average of 11%, which is extraordinarily lean.

Where things go awry is if you mess up your insulin sensitivity in your serum insulin levels rise and you’re not likely going to be in a store mode and is going to be very difficult immobilized body fat even at a caloric deficit.

Well, so what gets the glucose out of the muscle. Well when they asked Willie Sutton why he robbed banks he said that’s where the money is. When people ask me why do I advocate high-intensity exercise, I tell them because that’s where the glucose is. When we talked about hormone sensitive lipase, hormone sensitive lipase is not just sensitive to insulin it’s sensitive to epinephrine and norepinephrine or what’s commonly called adrenaline. During high-intensity exercise, fight-or-flight type of exercise, adrenaline is activated and acts on hormone sensitive lipase. But once it does that it triggers what’s called an amplification cascade. What that means is the adrenaline attaches to hormone sensitive lipase, hormone sensitive lipase activates one enzyme, which then goes out and activates a 100 other enzymes. Each of those 100 go out and activate a 100 others. So that one molecule of adrenaline is hatching the hormone sensitive lipase mobilizes hundreds of thousands of molecules of glucose.

The reason this is built into your body is it is a survival mechanism.  An animal is most likely to need its catabolic fight-or-flight response when it is in the middle of an anabolic feeding event you’ll see then you’ll get attacked at the waterhole. You have to be able to turn your metabolism on a dime from an anabolic state to a catabolic state and the way we do that is adrenaline. Once it hits we don’t got to get that glucose out of our liver circulate it around and get it to our muscles so we can run. It’s there on-site ready to go. That’s why we store glucose in our muscles.

We need these opportunities to perform ferociously hard exercise because that is what empties out large amounts of glucose out of our body.In absence of that we’ll have chronically high levels of glucose in our muscle, low insulin sensitivity and high insulin levels.

Insulin will trigger storage of body fat in a particular pattern that we all see. First it goes around your belly button and it spread then it goes to the behind to counterbalance the fat that it’s on the front of your belly so you maintain your center of gravity and then it’s out from there. The problem is, is these fat colonies are toxic.  

They produce a lot of bio chemicals that circulate around that are really bad for you and produce a systemic inflammatory state, coronary heart disease and strokes something that’s long been thought a problem of fat metabolism and cholesterol metabolism is really a downstream effect of this metabolic derangement.

These chronically elevated insulin levels produce fat, which produces systemic inflammation. The walls of all your arteries are chronically inflamed and irritated your body synthesizes cholesterol to patch these areas of inflammation and then these inflamed areas get sealed over and if they crack open. Well, guess what you’re going to have a heart attack.

So the way to affect this is not to watch the fat content in your diet, it’s to watch the carbohydrate content in your diet and perform high-intensity exercise so you can restore your instant sensitivity. So that’s how we cover fat loss in the book and we do discuss diet and other issues.
