BRIDGING THE GAP:  The GAPS™ Program at Integra

Our unique approach to implementing the GAPS™ Program (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) uses naturopathic therapies to overcome and often prevent common challenges of the diet. Working with a Naturopathic GAPS™ practitioner allows your health concerns to be addressed from a personalized, holistic perspective – to achieve sustainable, rapid results.

For those of you new to the GAPS™ diet, this nutritional plan is designed to effectively reestablish a strong microflora. The heart of your immunity resides in your gut and your flora plays an important role in protecting your body from infections, diseases and dysfunction. In the same way, your nervous system and brain are directly impacted by the composition of your microbes. As Hippocrates stated – “all diseases begin in the gut”. Indeed, food has the power to heal the body or compromise its function. On the GAPS™ Program, you will learn which foods restore health on a deep, cellular level to heal and seal your gut lining. Below you will see the relevance of gut health to disease manifestation.

Dr. Arnel Beaubrun is the first regulated Naturopathic Doctor in Canada to be GAPS™ certified. Dr. Arnel trained with Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride, and consults with clients from all over North America, to guide and support people with GAPS™. He has used this to successfully treat a myriad of health issues, ranging from autoimmune and autism to food sensitivities and depression. He has treated people of all ages, ranging from newborns to the very wise.

If you have been given a lifetime prescription of medications, or told you must merely “manage” your symptoms – there may be other options. The body has an extraordinary ability to heal itself if given the right tools. Food is your tool. Dr. Arnel is pleased to provide you a complementary 15 min introduction, so you can decide if Naturopathic Medicine is right for you.
