April 2014 Meeting Summary

The April meeting of the Prescott Area Celiac and Gluten Free Support organization was held on the 15th at 12:30PM at the Prescott Public Library Founder's Room "A" on the lower lever of the library. Gayle Baingo, RDN, is a GAPS practioner and was the main speaker.

GAPS refers to the Gut and Psychology Syndrome and the Gut and Physiology Syndrome.  This way of eating was developed by Natasha Campbell McBride.  Detailed info can be found on YouTube with Dr. Campbell McBride's name typed in the search engine. Very basically it suggests that fermented foods can help heal the gut. Gayle offered a very detailed and informative talk on the benefits of probiotics.
Linda C. has found that when baking egg free it would be best to use a baking powder that is formulated with SAP (Sodium Acid Pyprohosphate).  Bob's Red Mill would be recommended.
May is National Celiac Awareness Month, so watch for events throughout the state and our area.
