What she eats

Juliana followed the GAPS protocol for over three years. In that time we got rid of her reflux and GI pain. We were also able to rapidly tube wean her.

She has somewhat graduated from GAPS. She can eat grains though she mostly chooses not to. She is able to eat many different foods, but we try to stick with unprocessed, whole foods.

  1. Hiya your blog is amazing as is your little girl. My son Logan was born with a rare type of Kabuki syndrome, x linked inherited. He has had and still has many problems, but I won't bore you with that, the thing I am most interest in is the GAPs diet. He was born with malroatation of his bowel with a blockage, was TPN dependant for months when he was allowed food he had breast milk via NG. We quickly realised he had a bad wheat and dairy intolerance as well as a nut allergy. He is on neocate now he seems to tolerate that

I am very interested in trying the gaps diet with him he has chronic constipation and tummy pains. I was just wondering if you could give me an In site

  3. Into how I could manage the diet with Logan needing puréed food, with no dairy, wheat or nuts and also needing to keep his calorie intake very high he requires more than 3 times the recommended calories for a child his age he is nearly 4. Well thanks for your time, take care xx

    1. Hi Katy - it is totally possible to manage GAPS with those restrictions. We did it that way for quite awhile! GAPS is already wheat-free (and free of other grains as well). Food can be pureed - we actually put everything through a g tube for awhile. The dairy allergy may very well heal, but you can also do it without dairy in the meantime. Nuts are optional. As for needing high calories, GAPS is high in fat and calories and also in nutrients. I think that you will probably find that as nutrient absorption improves you won't need to hit a specific number of calories. I highly recommend the book, I think it's difficult to understand otherwise. Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.
