Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride on Healing Millions w/ Animal Based Diets, Reversing Mental Disorders

Updated: Nov 16, 2021

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride - Peak Human Podcast


Listen on


Today’s guest is Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who is the creator of the GAPS diet. The GAPS diet aims to solve an array of health conditions and chronic diseases by healing the gut. She has helped millions of people through her GAPS nutritional protocols and she shares a lot of her wisdom with us in this jam-packed episode! We discuss the gut-brain connection, processed foods, glyphosate, children’s diets, modern dairy, and much more!

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride holds a degree in Medicine and Postgraduate degrees in both Neurology and Human Nutrition. In her clinic in Cambridge she specialized in nutrition for children and adults with behavioral and learning disabilities, and adults with digestive and immune system disorders.

Dr. Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998. As a parent of a child diagnosed with learning disabilities, she was acutely aware of the difficulties facing other parents like her, and she has devoted much of her time to helping these families. She realized that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults to overcome their disabilities, and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field.

She believes that the link between learning disabilities, the food and drink that we take, and the condition of our digestive system is absolute, and the results of her work have supported her position on this subject. In her clinic, parents discuss all aspects of their child’s condition, confident in the knowledge that they are not only talking to a professional but to a parent who has lived their experience. Her deep understanding of the challenges they face puts her advice in a class of its own.

In the defense of doctors like her, if you are a caring, thoughtful doctor, fighting human suffering, stifled by the failings of medicine to combat the prevalence of today's diseases, you fell impelled to hypothesize and experiment to help. And if we can trust her, it sounds like she is making a difference with her approach.

As for Russia, I'm sure it was more natural, but I'll side with Ayn Rand on the evil of the USSR.
