An ASP Mom on the GF/CF Diet

Wilma dela Cruz Ligot of ASP UP Camp Manila gave a Glutten-Free/Cassein-Free (GF/CF) Diet talk at a SPED seminar in New Era University (NEU) last August 1, 2012 in observance of the Nutrition month.
Parents, teachers and students  listened how mom Weng used this alternative therapy to improve the behaviour of her 8-year old son,  Miles, diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome.

Ms.  Ligot gave a documented outline of her son’s condition before and after the diet.  “One month into a strict GF/CF Diet , my son became a different person.  Focus is there, he became suddenly aware of his surroundings, improved his eye contact and over health condition”, says Weng.

The audience learned so many new things from mommy Weng like the right food to eat, the right way of cooking food and even the right cookware to use.  She even detailed the top picks for fruits and vegetables, where to source them; DNA doctors in the country, among others, in the pamphlet she made that was later distributed to the parents and teachers.  "Going back to basics", reading the labels in the items you buy in the grocery and eating food in its most "natural" state is her advise to parents.

She told the audience that her entire  family is on a GF/CF for the past five years now.  And it has significantly improved their health.   Ms.  Ligot was given a Certificate of Appreciation by Dr. Ed Dizon NEU SPED Consultant and Ms. Penelope Sandoval (NEU Sped Directress) at the end of her talk.
