I like the phrase “Nutritional Rehab” for those of us who are fighting to regain health by shunning the common, modern diet and enriching our diet with traditional, real foods. I have nothing to gain by this blog except the peace of mind of communicating something that helped my family and me when none of the medicines I prescribed could. I’ve no supplements to sell. No paid product reviews. No kickbacks. It’s all genuine and heart-felt. We feel so much better, and I hope you find that path, too. My site here is not intended to provide you medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Please, keep yourself under the care of a qualified healthcare practitioner to make sure your not missing any crucial, dangerous diagnoses.
Most of the grain-free diets overlap immensely, and I think after you get comfortable on one, it’s helpful to learn about the others. Each brings its strengths and weaknesses to the table. We started our journey on GAPS (6 months for the kids and 18 months for me), and I find that many of the articles I wrote can apply to any person attempting true “Nutritional Rehabilitation.” I won’t say that one plan is better than another. And if you’re looking for a “quick-fix,” you’re in the wrong place.

Helps relate health, bacteria, and plant matter food, with the primary emphasis on butyrate, a chemical the bacteria make for us. For me, butyrate took my GI success to a new level. I’m trying to understand why–and how to get butyrate without a supplement.
