Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride – a world-renowned medical doctor, nutritional consultant and developer of the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Diet – is one of two keynotes at the NOFA Summer Conference, August 14-16, 2015, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA.
Dr. Campbell-McBride developed the GAPS Nutritional Protocol to treat a range of disorders, including autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, depression, schizophrenia, as well as physiological conditions including a wide range of inflammatory, autoimmune, and degenerative illnesses. The protocol is based on dietary and nutritional changes that improve the health of human gut flora. Thousands around the world are following this approach, healing themselves and their families.

With an emphasis on the role of soil biology in healthy food, ecosystems, and people, the NOFA Summer Conference features workshops on organic farming, pastured animal husbandry, herbalism, personal health, and more. This year, NOFA is focusing on the role that healthier microbial communities can play in addressing the greatest collective challenges humanity has ever faced: global climate disruption and epidemics of chronic disease. This year’s theme is “Healing the Climate, Healing Ourselves: Regeneration through Microbiology.”
Dr. Campbell-McBride’s approach to the health of gut microbiology addresses the “healing ourselves” part of the theme. Campbell-McBride’s hopeful message is that we can reverse degenerative illness in people by providing a diet optimized for the gut microbes that make people healthy. This is echoed by the hopeful message of our second keynote – director of the Organic Consumer’s Association, Ronnie Cummins – that farmers and land managers can reverse the climate crisis by managing soil microbial communities in combination with growing plants to transform excessive atmospheric carbon concentrations into fertile soils.
