Filling in the GAPS

Gut flora is the housekeeper of the digestive system. The state of the house and its ability to fulfill its purposes directly depends on how good the housekeeper is. Anatomical integrity of our digestive tract, its functionality, ability to adapt and regenerate, ability to defend itself and many other functions are directly dependent on the state of its microscopic housekeepers – our gut flora. GAPS children and adults have a very abnormal gut flora, which result in digestive abnormalities.

  1. Darcy I very much like this line ‘Gut flora is the housekeeper of the digestive system’. Now isn’t that the truth? I am left with visions of wee healthy bacteria mopping up. 🙂

  2. I know it does conjure up images, doesn’t it? I’m not good at housekeeping. Is it because my flora was weak to begin with? I’ll blame it on that…..:-)
