Disclaimer: Since I am not a doctor or medical practitioner and I do not know your medical history, please do not start any new diets or stop any medications without speaking to a medical professional first.
First! Read everything in my blog!!
Next…. Read Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall, Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Dr Natasha McBride, and The Paleo Diet by Robb Wolf.
Then… Get Started on your personal journey to health, healing and vitality!!!!
(I hope to create a list of practitioners/functional doctors to guide you but I don’t have this yet – ask me for advice on finding one)
For both SCD and GAPS diet, there is an “Intro” diet. If you are very sick with bloody diarrhea, you will need to start VERY slowly on these diets by eliminating most foods from your diet and slowly introducing foods and testing your reaction after introducing new foods. These diets are not easy but working towards health and vitality is empowering. You can do it!!! 🙂

Message From Dr Natasha before you start GAPS
You will need to customize the diets to your specific needs. If you need a practitioner to help you with implementing these diets, there are certified GAPS practitioners as well as Functional Medicine Doctors that can be very helpful. Many will also work via telephone or Skype so you can choose doctors remotely that have experience with GAPs/SCD/Paleo. Choose your doctors/health practitioners carefully. If you have any doctor/practitioner recommendations, please send them my way. Thank you.
