The newly updated book combines the two earlier editions. 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. The second part of the book is an easy-to-follow cookbook. This section contains over 200 recipes, including many you would have never thought possible on a GFCF diet.
