September 2018 Meeting Summary

After 3 meeting months with speakers, it was a real joy to get together and share thoughts, testimonials and delicious "pot luck" goodies. Many folks brought their lunch and snacks/desserts to share.  The 2 Brothers Crafting brought their famous pesticide/preservative free hand/body lotion to sell and it was a big hit.  They are both celiac and are home schooled and their entrepreneur spirit is very motivating.
Recent member Gerrit shares a very delicious vegetable broth that he has been consuming to better his health.  A cancer survivor, his testimonial was very moving as he discovered success in a gluten free/dairy free/ sugar free lifestyle.  Thanks so much for joining our group and sharing your journey.  Having no success with local doctors, Gerrit found on line a company that will do self-referred blood testing through local labs here in Prescott.  Check this out yourself, if it applies to you.  LIFE EXTENSION, NATIONAL DIAGNOSTIC, 5990 N Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33308 You must put blood testing or something similar in their search engine, as they also sell supplements, magazines etc.  Or call 866-962-4701.  This is his personal recommendation and NOT AN ENDORSEMENT BY OUR SUPPORT GROUP.
Thanks to everyone that brought desserts to share.  A hit was the home made cookies by Nicole and 2 Brothers Crafting.  Find the recipe at  Type in the search box  rice flour jam cookies.
And finally, we had a lively discussion on the benefits of A2 Milk.  If you have been unable to consume milk without gastric disasters please go to your computer search engine and just type in a2milk.  There is a plethora of information.  Check out the 2minute video on YouTube by Dr. Eric Berg, DC. It is very concise and easy to understand.  Also, check out  In general, milks from Guernseys, Jersey, humans, sheep, goat, camel etc contain the A2 Beta Casein.
I received a request from a member that would like to know if any of you out there in email-land know a doctor in town, familiar with Lymphocytic Colitis.  If so, please email me and I will pass the info on.  I am not able to do this type of personal request for specific medical conditions regularly. However, I am making an exception at this time.
See you all in October.
