GAPS is an acronym for Gut and Psychology Syndrome. The acronym was created by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD in 2004. It defines a condition caused by an imbalance in the gut leading to both physical and mental symptoms.
The same imbalance in the gut that leads to psychological issues can also cause physiological issues in the body. GAPS can result in chronic physical conditions including arthritis, MS, lupus, Crohn's. IBS, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune disorders.
