What you'll read below is, in a nutshell, why I blog. It's why I began and why I continue. With God's touch, food can change lives, it can bring about miracles and heal. This story brought tears to my eyes, especially the ending, and it renews my vigor to keep telling the world what I'm learning. Many of you know this full well. Maybe you've helped heal your own children or yourself from food allergies, ADHD, anxiety issues, digestive disorders or chronic disease. If so, please share with us in the comments so those without hope can know that it really could be them, too!

Natasha Campbell-McBride begins…
Here I would like to share with you a wonderful story from a family in Australia, who are trying to heal their autistic child. Fussy eating is becoming very common amongst children in the modern world, and not only amongst children with learning problems, but in ‘typically developing' ones as well. This family will demonstrate to you clearly that fussy eating can be corrected and overcome! This story demonstrates another wonderful point: grandparent power! In traditional societies old people have a very special role to play: they are the source of wisdom and life-long experience; they are the elders who are consulted for advice and knowledge: they are deeply respected and listened to. This is something that has been almost lost in the Western world, and we need to restore it!
Greek Grandmother Power — Healing Autism
Anna Breheney, Australia
From the moment I read Dr Natasha's personal testimony of how she recovered her son from autism, there was never a doubt in my mind that I would implement the GAPS diet in our house for my son, aged four, diagnosed with autism. I read Dr Natasha's book, made soup, sauerkraut, ghee, yoghurt and lard. All the while my heart trembled with fear – not because of the massive job I knew I was about to undertake, nor because of how difficult I imagined it would undoubtedly be, nor even because of the scary thought that perhaps it wouldn't work – but because of the seemingly impossible task of how on earth I was going to get my son to eat this soup and broth, let alone sauerkraut and all the other unusual stuff! James had limited his diet severely to a minute variety of sweet and starchy foods and processed carbohydrates. And even these did not interest him too much. I certainly couldn't get him interested in any food enough to actually want to feed himself. Instead, I would follow him around the house to try to get in a mouthful of rice here, a bit of pasta there, a GF cookie or glass of rice milk. Often I would feed him in the bathtub as this was the only place I could contain him. So my major fear and concern was how on earth I was going to get him to eat GAPS food.
