Hi Jan,

You're welcome!

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride says
anywhere from 6 to 18 months for the
gut to heal. She focuses on extreme
cases, such as autism, where the gut is
very damaged. In some of those cases
the diet may need to be followed for
years or even for life.

However, in less severe cases of
dysbiosis the 6-18 month window is
apparently often enough. The intro
diet is not applicable to all cases,
but certainly applies to cases of
sensitivities and serious digestive
problems. It's pretty amazing that it
will apparently heal the gut and
eliminate sensitivites, as most of us
are led to believe we have them for

It seems like a very practical approach
to follow the intro diet and test
sensitivities using the "skin test"
overnight, to determine when they are
resolved and when one can move into the
full GAPS diet.

As for saerkraut, I make it with two
tablespoons of mineral's very
easy and tastes great! There are
instructions in the book also.

Hope this helps.
