The author does a very good job of explaining the medical differences between food allergies and food intolerances as well as why he refers to them both as food sensitivities. That's in the Introduction so don't skip it.

I devour information about food sensitivities since I experienced a radical health improvement from following the results of a food sensitivity test. So I wasn't surprised that this author breaks with the often stated opinion that food intolerance is restricted to the gut and does not involve the immune system. It never made rational sense to me that one's headache or arthritis pain didn't involve the immune system just because the problem originated in the gut. This book explains how gut issues can allow the food to escape and get in the blood stream and then engage the immune system throughout the body.

The author's premise that food sensitivities can be reversed by correcting the root causes of them is absolutely dead on! The author details to great extent a huge variety of reasons why food sensitivities develop. The reader can then choose to address each possible cause in their own time. This author acknowledges that each person is different, with different causes and degrees of food sensitivities. (Thank you!) If you want a one-size fits all cure, then don't buy this book.

This book focuses on the immune system. The author clearly makes the case that most reasons we get food sensitivity are related directly to our immune system, or a portion thereof. Ways to heal your immune system may surprise the average reader, but readers will appreciate the simplicity and affordability.

The author included a lot of data on who most suffers from food sensitivities around the world.

This is by far the best and the most comprehensive book on the subject of food allergies and sensitivities. It's evident that the author has put a lot of time and thought into this book. He has done a lot of research on the subject and presents it in simple and straightforward terms.

One of the most important things that the author stresses in the book is the importance of a healthy immune system. Unlike most health professionals he dives into the root of the problem instead of trying to deal with the symptoms. He presents a number of ways to help strengthen the immune system... Chinese medicine, probiotics, herbs, etc.

I purchased the Kindle edition of this book. It originally had some mistakes in it which have since been corrected.

I feel so strongly about the material in this book that I think everyone should read it, even if they are not having a food allergy/intolerance problem.
It explains how our immune system works and relates it to food allergies/intolerances.
Do you understand probiotics and how important they are for us?- it's in the book.
Do you know how we likely develop food allergies/intolerances?- it's in there.
The book explains things you can do without seeing a doctor and strategies that require a doctors assistance/oversight.
I wish that I had known the information in this book before I had the unfortunate development of a food allergy. Perhaps I could have prevented the allergy in the first place.
This book has the potential to move the medical community in the U.S. to solve peoples allergies rather than just telling us to practice avoidance.

If you have life threatening food allergies, read this book. If you have non-life threatening food allergies, read this book. If you have weird, vague, or intermittent symptoms across 2 or more organ systems, that nothing seems to help (not RX meds, not OTC meds), READ THIS BOOK.

But before I review this book, a bit of context is in order.

Allergies and atopy (and asthma) run in my family. My dad had bad seasonal allergies and asthma. Two of my older siblings could not tolerate cow's milk as infants, and had to be given goat milk. My younger sib almost died from her allergy to pignola (she has to carry an Epi-Pen now). One of my grandmothers was terribly allergic to peanuts, and one of my nephews has the same horrible peanut allergy (life-threatening, requiring an Epi-Pen). And everyone is allergic to cats, dogs, horses, anything with fur.

I was *not* allergic to anything with fur -- the only one of five kids who isn't. From a very young age, I hung out with friends with multiple cats, multiple dogs, etc. Sometimes when I came home from my friends' houses, I had to take off my clothes on the porch (and enclosed one, lol!) so that the hair on my clothes wouldn't trigger my father's or siblings' allergies and asthma.

In my pre-teens and teens, I got exercise-related asthma, but only if I ran a long time, or if it was pollen season. Nothing that required daily antihistamines or asthma inhalers.

So I thought the allergy genes had skipped me, for the most part. I'm miserable, sinus-wise, only during tree pollen season and during mold season in the fall. But OTC antihistamines work fine for me.
