July is GAPS Month!Healthy Living
Next to Nourishing Traditions Cookbook, which upended my life for the positive nearly a decade ago, the book Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, is the single most influential book on health and nutrition I’ve ever encountered.
Even my Father, a retired MD Family Practitioner, told me it was one of the most interesting books he has ever read on a medical topic of any kind. He devoured the book when I handed him a copy to read a few months back. He has since continued to rave about the thoroughness of the research that is presented in the book and how out of the box it is in its approach to wellness.
I’ve read the book three times now, and will be reviewing the book from start to finish this month as I run through it for a fourth time. A number of blogs will be posted throughout this month to this end along with GAPS recipes I have developed in my kitchen or modified from standard non-GAPS recipes elsewhere. I hope that this lengthy book review will give you a feel for the incredible wisdom Dr. Campbell McBride MD presents in this text and how it can change your life for the better as it has mine and many other people I know.
But, don’t run out and buy the book just yet ….
The best news is that GAPSdiet.com will be sponsoring GAPS month here at the Healthy Home Economist blog. At the end of July, I will be running a Giveaway of the GAPS book and related GAPS product – all donated by GAPSdiet.com and you could be the lucky winner!
So, sit back, relax and take in some amazing information about how our guts work and how this critical function affects literally everything we experience in our daily lives.
You just might find, as I did, that this information is far ahead of its time.
