I would love to hear from people who have had successful experiences with the GAPS diet. By successful, I mean they did the diet, symptoms went away, and now they are fine.
I am drawn to GAPS because I know we need healing. We've been doing elimination diets for 7 years. Yes, elimination diets have been excellent at keeping our symptoms at bay, but it's obvious that healing hasn't taken place, just absence of symptoms.
If we ever make a mistake and go "off diet" we suffer for it. I ate something off my diet at a restaurant about 6 weeks ago and am still suffering effects from it. My daughter also has similar experiences in that her off diet mistakes take a long time to recover from.
So....I would love to hear from people who have completed the GAPS diet and can live somewhat "normal" lives now. Are people like that out there?
(All of the discussions I find by searching online and here at mothering.com are people who are still in the midst of it or just starting out. I also see a lot of people doing intro over and over and i'm curious about how effective it is if so many people feel the need to keep repeating it).
