“He needs GAPS,” the nutritionist said in June. “And so do you.”
My heart sank. I’d dreaded those words for years. GAPS. Really? Are you sure?
A Little Background
To recap in case you’re new here, my 3 year old Arthur suffered with typical modern health problems from day one. First reflux, colic, and unusually poor sleep; then eczema, an agitated nervous system, cranky temperament, and constipation appeared. All this despite a nutrient-dense real food diet, nontoxic products, and years of working holistically on my health, plus exclusive breastfeeding and no antibiotics for him ever, blah blah blah.
As my husband said yesterday morning, What does it take? It was–and still is–painful to discover that doing it all “right” doesn’t come with a guarantee.
