All diseases begin in the gut


AboutWelcome to GAPS Help!

My name is Tatiana Baskin and I am a qualified specialist in natural medicine.

My path to nutritional practice is not common. Usually most people begin to study and practice natural medicine because they are unable to solve their own health problems with conventional doctors and drugs.

Medical professionals are beginning to use unconventional therapies, and sometimes completely switching to natural methods, in search of a gentle, humane and effective treatment, often disillusioned with the practiced symptomatic therapy. That is therapy directed not to treat the disease, but only to eliminate the symptoms…

But my story is different.

I grew up in small town on Azov Sea in Ukraine. Every summer holiday I spend at my grandparents’ farm. I drank raw milk; I loved freshly baked bread with homemade butter and honey. For lunch we always had soup, borscht, fish soup, meat or fish. Fruits and vegetables were fresh, too – right from the branches – on the table…

Now I understand that at that time the foundation was laid for my own (and my future children’s) good health.

My husband, Igor Baskin, was a doctor of gastroenterology in Ukraine. Here in Canada, I watched as his interest shifted from conventional medicine – toward natural. Together we often discussed the problems of modern medicine.

Igor has written several books on aging, obesity, and “diseases of civilization.” Of course, I was the first reader and editor.

After all these discussions, debates and participation in the research of my husband, my interest in nutrition, diet and natural medicine inadvertently led me to the idea to get proper education. In this area, I saw an opportunity to gain knowledge and experience that will fit my aspiration to help people. After all, following the wisdom of Marcus Aurelius: “Man is worth as much as what he is interested in is worth”.

I completed the course in Stratford Career Institute and graduated as a Natural Health Consultant in 2008.

Next – I continued my studies at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist in 2011.

My search for effective methods of natural healing continued and led to information about GAPS™ diet, developed by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBright. I became her student, and one of the first in Canada to complete the special course for selected practitioners to administer the GAPS™ protocol (Chicago, 2012).


I am a Certified GAPS™ Practitioner and currently practicing the GAPS™ diet in Toronto, as well as around the world, through consultation via Skype.
