  2. Hi Wonka, The Canadian Celiac Association will not be able to recommend specific GI's as a policy. However there is an opportunity to meet one of our local Pediatric GI's at an upcoming event that the Vancouver Chapter is hosting on April 5th. It's posted on the calendar on this site for that day and you can also read more about it at www.vancouverceliac.ca The event is also an opportunity for you to meet other families with celiac disease or that are gluten-free and perhaps there you can get a personal recommendation from someone.

She may cover topics such as: - a checklist to see if you have the trait - a checklist to see if your children have the trait - any references on the links to chemical and food sensitivities - not too much official research but examples from her experience - Challenges - Strategies to overcome - "Gifts" associated with the trait About Highly Sensitive People (HSP) HSP's: Experts say 15-20% of us inherit this perceptiveness and that it can be a great asset. Signs of this trait: -sensitive to noise, bright light, colours, temperature, smells, tastes, textures (hard to find the zone of "just right") -more aware of people's feelings -conscientious & caring -pause before taking action -vivid imagination -think deeply about everything they notice -need & enjoy time alone every day
