Books and Resources I Recommend

These are all fantastic resources to add to your health library – although like me, you will probably find some things that don’t work for your situation in each book. But overall, I believe they all have worthy insight that will be beneficial for you to get hold of your own copies.

    Hey there … Gaps an be draining at first but hang in there for a while … Also listen later for your body’s need fore f something when you do heal . I think the hardest thing with Gaps is know when to come off without feeling guilty about eating non gaps food again . Your body will naturally tell you when it is ready or not and what it steal needs time to heal on. For me I know I am not fully helped after doing gaps for a year but I also know I needed to added n a few other non gaps options like sweet potatoes, quinoa , and rice after that year. So please do gaps in the mind set that everyone heals at a different pace and many come off better then before but not completely healed , but I am so thankful I am able to say that it really did work well for me . Hope you all have great success the plan and please contact me over at honey and lemons if you need some advice.

      I will definitely be visiting you at your blog. Thank you. A year seems like a long time, but at the same time I can see time will fly by. Thanks for the encouragement – I’d quite sure I need it!

    I’m “experimenting” my way through GAPS to “see if it’s legit.” Regardless of whether or not it “heals my gut”, I know it has helped me to become aware of food as a substance that can negatively impact the function of my body (and my kids and husband, too). I had no idea the extent of this one year ago. Now, I’ll stay the course to see if I can ever eat butter again–without consequences!

      I think the key to GAPS is just to stay the course; ie. hang in there for a good length of time, as results aren’t always seen from day-to-day or week-to-week, but over a few months you should start to see some significant healing. I also find it encouraging to stop by GAPS blogs and the Facebook group just to hear the stories of healing and health. Very motivating!
      Well done for taking that first step and committing to this while for the next short while – you can do it!
