GAPS Support Group

The Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet/detox protocol is used for healing many chronic health and emotional/behavioral problems by bring healing to the digestive system which is critical for the  body to obtain the nutrients it needs for overall health.  You can find out more about GAPS at  "The Gaps Diet".

There is a free community resource for learning about healing through food.  The 2nd GAPS support group meeting will occur at Terry Library this month.  The Little Rock GAPS meetings are led by local GAPS practitioner; Pam Berndt, RN.  The focus of the next meeting is the “Gut-Brain Connection”.

Pam will be teaching about the psychological symptoms that may occur in both children and adults who have gut imbalances.  If this is an area of interest to you, I know you will enjoy hearing Pam speak and benefit from her knowledge on this subject matter.

I originally began studying the GAPS protocol because of my interest in helping children with learning and behavioral issues.  I believe this is the best nutritional program currently available for this.  In the past few months, I began the GAPS protocol for my own healing.  Pam Berndt has been a very helpful resource on this journey.

Whether or not you can attend this meeting, if you would like to continue receiving meeting announcements, please email Pam { pmberndt AT sbcglobal DOT net } and ask her to add you to her contact list. Feel free to forward to anyone else you think may be interested.

Dear GAPS Group ~
Thank you for your interest in the GAPS dietary protocol.  I was very pleased to be able to share important information with you last Saturday and so as not to "drop the ball", I have booked additional meetings at the Terry Library.  (see below)

During the first meeting, (Lesson 1) we laid the foundation for understanding the anatomy/physiology of the gut lining, the role of beneficial gut flora and what damages it.   We also briefly described a typical GAPS scenario for children and adults.

The next meeting is scheduled for March 17 from 1-3pm.  Here is the structure for that day:

Lesson 2 Explore the symptoms of GAPS (psychological) for children and adults.
Discuss the Gut-Brain Connection

  1. I think this is such a great idea, but except for this month's meeting all the meetings are held at the exact same time as the ASN Saturday pick-up. It seems like the crossover audience for these two things would be significant and by having them at the same time there is a risk of excluding people who might otherwise participate.
