Processing Heartbreak and Uncertainty on GAPS

Within the past month my partner and I split up. We had been together for 7 years and engaged for over 1. During this time, fleas infested my cats and those little buggers invaded our airbnb. Meanwhile, I was & still am displaced from fleeing a toxic living situation + the infamous wildfires in Oregon that happened shortly thereafter [thousands of people lost their homes in my area].  So I don’t know how you’ve been doing lately, but I haven’t been doing so well.

GAPS & Human Design

The last few weeks I’ve written about what to do if you’re stuck on GAPS. Detox support being the first priority, and then following up with more pinpointed strategies to up level your GAPS game. 

 

But what if I told you it wasn’t just about the physical stuff?  What if healing yourself is not just about food, or detox, or meat stock?  Well it’s not.

GAPS Intro and Coronavirus: The Most Supportive Diet

Mass panic ensues. Toilet paper flies off the shelves, hand sanitizer evaporates the moment it’s back in stock, and politicians declare a state of national emergency.  I remember my partner stalking reddit back in early January wondering how big of a deal this new coronavirus was going to be.  But was any one of us really prepared for it???
