There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
True healing requires the elimination or introduction of certain elements from/to the body....this book will teach you how to recognize those elements.... could not recommend enough!
Would recommend it to anyone that has a condition for which the regular doctors have no answers.

What I found to be a problem is the constant subtle condescending undertone towards children or adults with autism or mental health issues. Statements such as “GAPS patients are very toxic people” are offensive and disrespectful towards this group of people. It could have been easily rephrased into something along the lines of “GAPS patients suffer from having toxins in the body”, focusing on the condition rather than making the patient themselves out to be the problem.
Some of the methods described on how to get children to eat the GAPS diet are questionable and can be categorised as forms of psychological abuse/trauma-bonding. This approach towards dealing with children, as well as the condescending view upon autism and mental health patients is disrespectful and outdated. If we want to be healthy we cannot just focus on the physical body alone, we also need to take psychological health into consideration. The way we speak to and about other people has an impact, even if it’s only subtle. Being exposed to a condescending and disrespectful attitude from others can have a negative impact on a person, especially if they are vulnerable. Anyone who is working with children, mental health patients and other vulnerable people should be aware of this. Sadly, that’s not where we’re at in this world yet, but it is time to let go of these old and outdated systems and perspectives.
