5.0 out of 5 stars An instructional tool for those who suspects food allergies!, June 3, 2000
This review is from: Food Allergies and Food Intolerance: The Complete Guide to Their Identification and Treatment (Paperback)
An invaluable reference source that gives a comprehensive discussion of the difference between true food allergies and food intolerance. You will find numerous case histories which help thoroughly explain the ill effects food can have on people. This book explores both sides of controversial issues concerning the symptoms caused by food intolerance, and with scientific data supports the idea that many diseases are related to the ill effects of food. There is an in-depth discussion of Rheumatoid Arthritis, IBS, Migraine headaches, and the use of diagnostic testing. A complete overview of "Bugs in the System" will enlighten all who suspect they suffer from an overpopulation of yeast or unsuitable bacteria in the gut. It will help you uncover food allergies and food intolerances through an explicit step by step elimination diet. The authors have dedicated a complete chapter to explain exactly how to use their three-stage approach to uncover the foods that may be making you feel ill! Stage one of the plan is one month of eating healthy by eliminating foods and drinks that have a drug-like action on the body, such as coffee, tea, cola, chocolate, cocoa, alcohol, sugar, histamine-rich foods and food additives. Stage two is an elimination diet that excludes the most common allergens and Stage three is much more restictive and is designed to help those sensitive to many foods. The authors suggest that your physician performs an examination to rule out any servious medical problems prior to trying this elimination diet. This book is a must for anyone who suffers from chronic, unexplained health problems. It is the most complete source I have read yet concerning the ill effects of food!
