I can’t believe I have already been doing GAPS for 3 months! That’s 90 days with no gluten, grains, sugar, or processed foods. I only ate fruit twice in that time. I survived starting a new job, traveling with family, and even was able to create a romantic weekend using only Full GAPS foods.
Unfortunately, this past month was difficult for me. My healing seemed to stall out, and in the second half of the month, it even went backwards. During multiple extensive nut binges throughout the month, I made myself very sick. I continue to deal with anovulation, and crazy sensitive acne. Luckily, I know that if I avoid sugar, nuts and dairy, as well as work on my stress levels, I should be fine in all of those regards.
I did recognize some healing, though. Normally, a food binge will make me feel very guilty. Instead, I had the ability to see them as learning experiences rather than feel guilty. I could have felt as emotionally awful as I felt physically awful, but I was able to consciously decide to just take the lesson, get the nuts out of the house, and move on. (that is, until the second round of binges made me too sick to ignore, and has left me craving nuts and snacks like crazy since)
Because of my stalled health, the damage I did with the nuts, and the fact that I am still dealing with some digestive issues that may be caused by an unknown sensitivity, I have decided to restart GAPS Intro. I will be starting from the very beginning and moving very slowly and methodically through. Although I made an effort to move slowly the last time, I know that I could have done better and I was not focusing on certain symptoms that I am now hoping to heal.
I restarted Intro on day 91 on April 3rd, exactly 3 months after I initially started GAPS. Tune in next month to see how it goes. Or follow me on Instagram to get daily updates.
