Dr. Karen Lyke
GAPS: Learn everything your doctor didn't tell you about fat & cholesterol (and how the gut is central to our health).
Show Notes
Karen is such a good teacher! She has a simple way of explaining tough concepts. In this episode, (Part 1 of 2), you'll learn WHAT the Gut and Psychology Syndrome is, how to eat on the diet, how it differs from the dietary suggestions offered by conventional medicine, and why we should care. We also touch on vegetarianism/veganism and our experiences with it.

In Part 2, (Ep. 28, to be published 1-22-2018) we will expand on this philosophy by discussing what dis-eases can be treated with GAPS, including Autism and Celiac, and whether it's safe for anyone to try, as well as resources for learning more.
