Allow me to fill you in on how grandma made the best soup. First she started with a base from boiling the bones of an animal that grandpa shot. Back in the day, nothing got wasted. They used the entire animal tip to tail. That’s why the broth was so good and nutritious. The hardest to digest and least nutritious part of the animal is the muscle. I know, it tastes the best which is why we all eat it like kings.
Dr. Natasha developed a concept called GAPS; Gut And Psychology Syndrome. GAPS diet heals and seals the gut lining; it normalizes the microbiome and stops the inflammation. Bad bacteria create toxins that go into the bloodstream and cause any number of symptoms depending on the toxin, which in turn depends on the pathogen creating the toxin. Wherever the toxin flows to is where the disease will occur.
