GAPS is basically second generation of SCD diet (specific carbohydrate diet) which I think Mayo sometimes talks about for chrone's patients. I feel like the root cause of chrones and cg are similar – the gut can't break down and absorb certain foods. You can search SCD on Mayo boards.

Collagenous means eroded to the collagen level. They are different conditions but I think that treatment is similar.

I have an 18 yr old with collagenous gastritis. Sucrulfate and prednisone did not help him. He is on the GAPS diet which has helped a lot. You still have to customize based on your own reactions. We also work with a GAPS practitioner via skype.

Totally agree on nutrition. My teenager has collagenous gastritis. We are now doing the GAPS diet/protocol. That is after seeing many specialists across the country and trying meds. GAPS is the only thing that is working for us. However, you have to customize based on the individual. If you don't customize, you don't see improvement. That is the tricky part of the nutrition route. Very slow improvement but finally moving in the right direction.

They gave him carafate and steroids but neither helped. Steroids were terrible.

GAPS is second generation SCD. We work with a GAPS practitioner to customize for specific issues. That makes a world of difference. Not cheap to work with practitioner but worth it.

Collagen band in the stomach. We went all over the country visiting specialists. My son couldn't gain weight and was exhausted all of the time. We are now doing the GAPS diet protocol. Only thing that has helped. Very slow improvement. Like you mentioned, no preservatives, no additives. Not an easy protocol but I'm a believer.
