Welcome to my site!  I’m so glad you’re here!

A daughter’s story… How one mother who wouldn’t give up healed her child with SCD and went on to help countless others through her scientific research

Sometimes a true story is more riveting than fiction. The story of how SCD (and GAPS which is built upon SCD) came to be one of today’s most effective interventions for bowel and neurological issues is one of those amazing stories of science, compassion and perseverance. Dr. Sidney Valentine Haas developed SCD in 1920.  He …

Diets that Heal: What is the Difference in SCD and GAPS?

In my last post, I explained why the terms SCD and GAPS are often used interchangeably – SCD is the original gut-healing diet, and GAPS is a protocol built around the SCD diet. Both diets eliminate the same foods (sweet and starchy carbohydrates) in order to starve the pathogenic bacteria that are associated with autism, …
