About the Presentation

When her second child contracted Lyme disease at the age of 5, it turned out to be a life changing experience for this mother of two. Her daughter, Natalie developed a bullseye rash after the initial tick bite. She was treated with antibiotics for a month but unfortunately remained ill. After exhausting the options of conventional medicine for Lyme disease and seeing no progress, Krisztina turned to her knowledge of homeopathy.

Combining her knowledge of nutrition and homeopathy with the principles of homotoxicology she was able to rebuild her daughter’s health. Today Natalie is a happy, healthy child with a bright future ahead of her. Krisztina’s success in treating her daughter’s Lyme disease has inspired her to share this knowledge with other Lyme sufferers.

1/28/16 GAPS Diet: Healing the Gut, Part II

On Thursday, 1/28/16,  the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation will present the work of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride in “GAPS Diet: Healing the Gut, Part II”, at the United Steelworkers Hall, Bethlehem. Doors open at 6:30pm. The presentation begins at 7. Free admission (donations invited). Ample on-site parking lot is accessible from Center St (at the equivalent of 316 Center St, if you’re googling).

This is the second part of our hugely popular presentation on The Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet. In this second DVD, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride will be delving into the diet itself and discussing ways to prepare foods to best heal and seal the gut.

Please note: there will be a brief recap of the Part I presentation so if you were unable to attend the Fall 2015 presentation, fear not, you can still benefit from part II.

     The GAPS Diet has its foundation in the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) created by Dr. Sidney Valentine Haas to heal digestive disorders.  Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride has taken SCD and evolved it further to create a full protocol for healing digestive disorders and subsequent issues.

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride holds a degree in Medicine and Postgraduate degrees in both Neurology and Human Nutrition.  In her clinic in Cambridge she specializes in nutrition for children and adults with behavioral and learning disabilities, and adults with digestive and immune system disorders.

Dr. Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998.  She realized that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults overcome their disabilities and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field. She believes that the link between learning disabilities, the food and drink that we take, and the condition of our digestive system is absolute. The results of her work have supported her position on this subject.
