Despite offering a wide array of delicious foods to eat, many people find the GAPS Nutritional Protocol extremely challenging. I’m one of them. After going through the training and protocol herself, Jenn Scribner and a fellow GAPS practitioner teamed up to offer group GAPS coaching to help people stay on the diet with a low pressure approach. Listen in to find out how Jenn stuck to the protocol and how failing isn’t as easy as you might think.
Jennifer Scribner is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Restorative Wellness Practitioner, and Certified GAPS™ Practitioner. Her specialty is helping people learn and follow the GAPS Diet to address autism and complex digestive and autoimmune conditions. She is one of the first Certified GAPS™ Practitioners trained by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride in September 2011. Her other passions include her family, Hello Kitty, and plotting how she can move to Hawaii.
