March 2016 Meeting Summary

The Prescott Area Celiac and Gluten Free Support Organization met  on Tues. March 8th, 2016 from 12-2PM.

Dr. Gemie Kohler McCloud NMD, of Innate Wellness of Prescott, spoke to twenty six members of the  group at the Prescott Valley Public Library.

Her topic was "The Benefits of Food Allergy Testing As a Tool to Heal and Restore GI Function in Celiac and Those With Gluten Intolerances." Dr. Gemie did a great job explaining about the differences of wheat allergies, celiac, and gluten sensitivity/intolerances.  She presented some very informative slides with graphics on what damage to the gut looks like with each of these conditions. 
She also spoke about how finding out your food allergies/intolerances by simple blood testing and then how avoiding those foods, would help heal Leaky Gut and your immune system. 

It was a great presentation and the group was very grateful to Dr. Kohler McCloud for her care and concern and for taking valuable time out of her busy schedule for them. 

The next meeting of the PACGFS organization will be held on Tuesday, April 12th form 12-2PM at the Prescott Valley Public Library.
