When we give the body the tools it needs- the body has the amazing ability to heal itself.

My name is Jillian Vander Ploeg, CGP, BSN, RN. As a Registered Nurse of 9+ years and skilled GAPS Practitioner, I have worked with individuals and families of all ages through their journey of healing by creating a plan tailored plan based on each person's bio-individual needs. 

What is GAPS?

GAPS is a healing protocol that is not for the faint of heart. We focus on 3 components:

1. The GAPS diet: Food as medicine

2. Supplementation as a secondary "tool" 

3. Detoxification

When we seal & heal the digestive systems, we see many other things heal, such as:

  • Autism

  • Autoimmune illnesses

  • Allergies


  • Arthritis

  • Digestive Issues (constipation, diarrhea, bloating, etc)

  • IBS & IBD

  • Food Intolerances

  • Fertility

  • Hormonal Imbalances

  • Fatigue

  • Anxiety & Depression

  • Eczema 

  • Neurological Issues

And so much more!
