I love this book because the good doctor covers all the ROOTS (causes) of this issue, including FOOD (which is a huge factor in my case). He discusses how almost every symptom you have can be related to allergies, which even mimic diseases. (My question here is: Are all diseases, at their root, allergies caused by all the new chemicals and food toxins?) He teaches you how to journal every day to uncover the food or environmental issue that is causing your symptoms, something I've found useful for years. He points out that allergies are increasing dramatically due to our way of farming (just wish he'd mentioned GMOs!), and stresses the importance of ORGANIC (pay now or pay later).He provides a power cleanse with simple soup and smoothie recipes, and a guide for slowly reintroducing new foods to discover which ones you're allergic to (in three stages).
Though I have read several HUNDRED books on health, which is my passion (even written and published a couple myself) I found this a worthwhile read as I learned new tidbits, including the folllowing: WHY we should make ours a "shoe-less house," details about "third hand" smoke, the curative power of flavonoids and which foods have them, the vicious cycle of allergies and weight gain (exacerbated by allergy drugs), the power of adinopectin to decrease allergies and weight, the allergy link to eating fast foods, and much more. There is even a separate chapter on rhinitis and a separate one on asthma. And of course, there is a separate chapter on the gut microbes, a current very popular topic. A favorite chapter of mine is "Are Allergies Making you Fat?"
Each chapter has at least one case study and at the end of every chapter is a summary.
Susan Schenck, award-winning author of The Live Food Factor and several other books
The information in this book allows people with difficult-to-diagnose illnesses take action on their own, both to understand what might be causing their condition and to address it decisively. Not everyone's undiagnosed problems are associated with non-IgE allergy, but many, many are - and if yours is, you'll finally find some relief. And if allergy is not related to your problem, well - all you've lost is a bit of time and a few days of adjusted diet, and you'll have ruled out one more thing that will bring you a step closer to someday finding a solution to your problem.
Well-researched, well-cited, well-written, and easy to understand, I hope this information helps you in the same way it has helped me.
