It took me:

3.5 years on GAPS

a lyme diagnosis

record-breaking amounts of pesticides in my body

an incredible amount of heavy metals

a GAPS Practitioner certification

and 8 months working intensely with one of the top GAPS Practitioners in the world

before I figured out how to do GAPS right + truly started healing myself. I don’t think it should take that much time, suffering, or study for you.


This is your time. You’ve been flirting with going on GAPS for awhile. What’s going to be different in a few weeks, in a few years? Do you really want to feel the same way you do now? Going to millions of doctor appts hoping someone can ‘fix’ you? It’s time to take responsibility and heal yourself. I just help you get there.

Lauren was really encouraging in our meeting and helped me believe I could do the GAPS diet. It is not for the faint of heart so encouragement really helps. She has also followed this healing path herself so she walks her talk. It’s easy for someone to recommend a healing diet but better if you know they have actually done it themselves so you know it is possible. She’s also got a lot of training in nutrition so is good at recommending tips tailored to you as an individual to help you succeed. She is also very kind and a great listener.


Lauren is wonderful and such a joy to chat with. I've been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism since I was 12. I am now 28, and it's been a roller coaster trying to get my health back! For the first time in years I have hope for my health! Lauren was able to suggest things, and pin point things I was doing wrong/right! I'm very happy with my conversation and look forward to working with Lauren more!


When I first started working with Lauren, I felt I already knew a lot about nutrition. Yet despite this knowledge I still continued to eat sugary sweet treats and fast food with some regularity. Along the way Lauren gently guided me on my own convoluted, confusing path, dishing out compassion rather than guilt, until one day it all just clicked and I left all processed BS behind. I quit sugar cold turkey and all my meals are now made of whole ingredients. My mind is sharp, my muscles are toning themselves. It is as though I have been in an egg all my life. Lauren's gifts were the last nutrients I needed to break out of the shell holding me back so I could emerge into my real life!


When I began working with Lauren, I already considered myself very healthy and well-educated about holistic health. Unsure how she could help but frustrated that my healthy habits were not producing results, I decided to try an Initial Intake Session. This initial session revealed connections between a number of underlying issues that I had previously dismissed as insignificant. Lauren's guidance allowed me to reconceptualize my approach to health and left me feeling empowered to make sustainable long-lasting changes. A truly transformative experience.

Nice to meet you!

I'm Lauren Meadowsweet.

I’ve been on GAPS Intro 5 times. 

And on GAPS for almost 5 years.

3.5 of those years I wasn’t doing GAPS right, which is why I’m still on it.

Instead I just got sicker, making what now seem like obvious mistakes.

Since figuring out how to do GAPS 100% correctly, I’ve recovered from:

lyme disease, record-breaking amounts of pesticides in my body,

being housebound, bedridden, rashes + open sores

that were so bad I couldn’t wear clothes, & more.

I went on GAPS intro for the last time almost 2 years ago,

and I don’t believe I’ll ever have to go back on it again.

“The place of true healing is a fierce place. It’s a giant place. It’s a place of monstrous beauty and endless dark and glimmering light. And you have to work really, really, really hard to get there, but you can do it. You’re a woman who can travel that far.”
