‘Gut & Psychology Syndrome’ & ‘Gut & Physiology Syndrome’
The term GAPS, abbreviated from Gut and Psychology Syndrome was created by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, MMedSci (neurology), MMedSci(human nutrition) in 2004 after working with hundreds of children and adults with neurological and psychiatric conditions, such as autism spectrum disorders, ADD/ ADHD, schizophrenia, dyslexia, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and other neurological and psychiatric problems.
Since then the term GAPS has been extended to incorporate Gut and Physiology Syndrome because all autoimmunity begins in the gut. These conditions include but are not limited to the following: multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type one, celiac disease, osteoarthritis, lupus and any other autoimmune conditions. There are many autoimmune disorders but these are the most common.
GAPS is explained as a condition, which establishes a connection between the functions of the digestive system, the brain and the immune system.
