Some of you have probably read my story on how I healed for interstitial cystitis and have seen me mention that the GAPS diet played a role in this.
Today I’d like to share a bit more about my experience with this diet – this is an old post from another blog of mine (that I have since abandoned) but since I’ve gotten a couple of questions about my experience with GAPS I thought it would be good to share it here again.
The Cystitis Diet Protocol
A body with a healthy immune system can fight off infectious organisms, including those causing cystitis. A healthy microflora is also supportive.
To keep the immune system working efficiently, our bodies need nutrients.
Therefore, it is wise to consume a diet high in fresh, nutrient-dense foods and low in nutrient-poor, calorie rich foods that deplete nutrients and weaken the immune system.
