How do I Know When It’s Time to Move to The Next Stage on the GAPS Intro?
Dr. Natasha recommends moving through intro quickly, and trying new foods and watching for reactions. If necessary due to reactions, go back to the previous stage for a few days/week and then try again. Some individuals dealing with things like seizure disorders, autism, and severe digestion issues may need to stay on some stages longer than others.
Personally, I was able to heal my milk allergy just running through the introduction diet quickly, in about 4 weeks. Some people get stuck on a certain stage, especially introducing honey and fruit or eggs.
Symptoms can be behavioral or physical, watch for anything that went away and then comes back including:
- Brain Fog
- Upset Stomach
- Yeast rashes
- Aggressive behavior
- Loss of eye contact (and other autism symptoms)
- Stimming (another autism symptom)
