About me

Hi! im caroline Lunger. I am 18 and absolutely love information about nutrition and natural healing. I am currently doing the GAPS diet to heal my gut. I have severe chemical, environmental, and food sensitivities, so every day is a opportunity to learn something new. While i heal i love to cook and eat real food, exercise, yoga, be on the lake, study about the human body and nutrition and natural remedies. I am very excited to start my studies with NTAΒ in September.Β I have already read aton of books and i learn something new every day. I hope to start teaching other about my passion as well.Β Enjoy and i hope you learn something to nourish your own body!

  1. Caroline – I think you are off to a great start…I would like help with knowing more about selecting a water filter. One of my goals for this year is to figure out something that works for my family in terms of filtered water. I noticed the water filter in your kitchen gadgets post and would love to see you write more info about water filters.

    Thanks!

    • Thanks for reading! i too am working on water filters for my familys house. WE curently go back and fourth to the grocery store to buy big 5 gallons of reverse osmosis..good thing we live 2 min away from our store. THough we are probobly going to get a reverse osmosis system becasue i am extreamly sensitive to heavy metals and we go though so much water. WE will all just have to supplement with minerals in our water. i will do a seperate post on it though πŸ™‚

  2. I am enjoying your posts so far, and the pancakes sound delicious!
    I am going to try them with my teenaged sons tonight.
    My daughter just graduated from Bauman in August.She loved the school and the staff was awesome. She is traveling in Europe now to hone her skills πŸ™‚
    Good luck with your blog!
    Carmen

  3. Do you have any more posts on your story? I was wondering how you knew you were extremely sensitive to heavy metals, and also what made you decide to do the gaps diet. Have you seen any progress since you went on it? One other question-do you know anything about the chelation challenge test or chelation? I would love to hear more about you. I just found your blog on Fat Tuesday. I am working on my diet for health reasons, but am unsure if gaps is the answer for me. I like the look of the pancake recipe!

    • I don’t have any posts about my story yet but i will soon… i found out i was sensitive to heavy metals because i had a built in retainer and chronic eczema, once m dr. told me to get it out my eczema went away! Yes i have seen progress on GAPS, it is slow but definitely worth it!!!!!! If you have a leaky gut, which i still do, then chelation is a no no because you don’t want metals to get reabsorbed. GAPS may heal your gut because most people need a little healing of their gut if they ate any processed foods. It won’t hurt unless you cannot have veggies, and meat. Just drinking bone broth will help the gut too. remember that all disease starts in the gut!

    • Hello Kristie. Both of my sons have done a chelation challenges and did IV chelation. It was
      very interesting. If there is anything in particular you’d like to know, you can email me at
      carri.andersson@gmail.com I am pretty familiar with a lot of biomedical treatments and am friends with people at a clinic so I could ask questions for you too. Best of luck to you!

  4. The GAPS diet is a wonderful, logical way to live. While we were not strictly on the diet in the past, moving towards the GAPS diet has tremendously helped my son with Autism and my other son with ADHD. Our journey involved treating for yeast with and without the use of anti-fungals. By far it has made the most difference out of all the things we’ve tried. I’m looking forward to joining you on the diet and I will be following your blog. Thanks for posting!

  5. I’m loving your blog Caroline! It is encouraging to see youngins’ taking their health into their own hands and the health of your loved ones as well. Do you come from a health conscious family/ are you meeting any oppositions? I was very passionate about nutrition at your age and graduated from Bauman College out in Berkeley when I was 19(7years ago) and continue to learn as much as I can, it is fascinating! I love that there are so many resources these days to make this information available, so thank you for joining in and creating this beautiful blog! I will stay tuned to see what you’ve got coming up next. πŸ™‚

    • thanks krystal! i do have a healthy mom, who always tried to feed us and care for us in the most natural way, but now i am teaching her πŸ™‚ I looked at Bauman college in boulder Co but it was too far form home so now i am going to do NTA(nutrition therapy instate) online. what did you do after Bauman at your age. did you get a degree or did you go straight to work. it is so nice to meet someone who loved nutrition from such a young age like me πŸ™‚ thanks for reading

  6. First of all, I am so excited when I see young people embracing nutrition and taking responsibility for their health. I am sure you can inspire many other young folks much like you inspire me, who at 32 is just now starting this journey. I hope that my kiddos will grow up with a love for nutrition like you. Secondly, I am considering the GAPS diet for myself. I am currently eating GF/DF and trying to eliminate refined sugars. I feel better than ever, but there are a few things that haven’t completely healed which leads me to believe my gut probably still needs some healing. I will probably start at the beginning of next year when my son is weaned. So I will be checking back here for ideas and tips. Thanks for blogging about your journey. πŸ™‚

    • I too get excited to learn and write about nutrition, The GAPS diet is a life saver and it really changed my family’s life. we are so much healthier now, and i am thankful for that. I hope you have a wonderful journey!

  7. What a wonderful source of information you are compiling! Hopefully, people are starting to realize in greater numbers the importance of healthier eating. Keep up the good work!
