This revised and expanded edition brings together two top selling books and includes the latest research, revised recipes, and color photos throughout!
The first part of the book describes dietary intervention in detail, from both a scientific and a personal approach (the author´s son has autism and has been on a GFCF diet for many years). In a nutshell, certain enzymes are required to break down gluten and casein. If those enzymes don’t function well, or are not present at sufficient levels, serious neurological problems can result. Studies have shown that children with autism have a marked deficiency of these enzymes, which may explain why GFCF diets have yielded positive results for many children.
Dr. Lewis explains The Biology behind Dietary Interventions; Leaky Gut; Allergies, Sensitivities, and Intolerances; Antibiotics and Probiotics; Vitamins and Mineralsand much more
