gut and psychology syndrome
Definition A made-up disease created by one Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who attributes an array of health problems to the imbalance of gut microbes which, she claims, can be resolved by the GAPS* diet. Campbell-McBride’s book on GAPS has been described as a mishmash of half-truths, pseudoscience, imagination, and untested claims.
*Gut and psychology syndrome. The claims that autism, ADD, OCD, schizophrenia, epilepsy, depression, and a cornucopia of other ailments are all digestive disorders fly in the face of what is known about physiology and pathophysiology. Caveat emptor.
