The Gaps in GAPS? What you need to know

julie matthewsBy Julie Matthews, CNC

As a Certified Nutrition Consultant specializing in autism for over ten years, I have found the GAPS Diet to be one of the most effective strategies for aiding health and healing.

Extensive scientific research indicates that children with autism suffer from gastrointestinal disorders more than do neurotypical children [1],[2]. We also know that there is an increase in "leaky gut," or gut permeability in autism [3],[4], and that those with GI issues may not have enough carbohydrate-digesting enzymes (key rationale for to the GAPS diet) [5],[6]. Read Julie's Blog.

"Different diets are right for different people. There is no 'one-diet-fits-all'." Because of their biochemistry or health condition, I've found some people require a different diet, others benefit from employing additional dietary principles with a GAPS Diet."

Julie Matthews will be presenting Nutrition and Cooking: Guidance for Beginners and Beyond and participating on the Collaborative Multi-Disciplinary Team Approaches for Autism Interventions in Schools Panel 4 on Nutrition Intervention Improving Autism Related Disorders at the USAAA 2013 World Conference.
