Editor’s Note: I met Gina at the Fourfold Path to Healing Conference in Baltimore last month. Her story of healing from Ulcerative Colitis using the GAPS Diet was so compelling to me that I asked her to write her detailed story so that others in a similar situation might be inspired to heal through a change of diet.
Thank you, Gina, for sharing your long and difficult but ultimately triumphant journey with all of us.

For those of you who are not familiar, GAPS stands for Gut and Psychology Syndrome, a book written by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD. It is a natural digestive healing program. It has been used to successfully treat many diseases/conditions including: Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis, IBS, Autism, ADHD/ADD, Allergies, Depression, Anxiety, Asthma, Eczema, Schizophrenia and more. The GAPS program rebuilds the gut by healing the damaged gut lining, which is the root cause of the mentioned diseases.I learned about the GAPS diet program from a friend while attending the Weston A Price Foundation Conference in 2010.
