I bought this on the recommendation of my mother-in-law who is a retired OT who struggled to identify her own food sensitivity for years with little help from her Drs. As she explained, the average contemporary Dr. only gets scant training in nutrition now that so much relies on handing patients pills to treat symptoms. For this reason, getting input can be nearly impossible. With food sensitivity and allergies, you can't (generally) have a simple test and most of the elimination diets given to patients in most medical facilities are not comprehensive.

This book gets into the underlying science of allergy and sensitivity, which I feel really helps in understanding the need for a careful elimination diet and (if you identify a problem) the many factors that can make them wax and wane if they are sensitivities instead of all-out allergies that require major medical intervention (like the Epi-pen). For example, I do have a very serious mold allergy and have had some idea that other problems increased when that allergy was in seasonal peaks and this book explains why in a way that I can understand. That knowledge will make me better prepared in fall and spring, when the few triggers I may have with food are more likely to happen. I have not yet started the elimination, but fully expect to satisfy some unanswered questions when I do.

Perhaps more than anything else I appreciate that this is written by someone with a legitimate, advanced education on the topic (PhD, with real experience too) and some personal experience unraveling problems her son had. I'm mighty tired of every other random blogger or person I know who knows diddly about actual science diagnosing me and most of the world with things, when they have no formal qualifications to do so.

This book provide more information than my allergist bothered to tell me. I highly recommend to read it before you go to your doctor, even if you are just being tested for pollen, etc. I wish I would have found it before all the time and money spent at this particular doctor.

If you or your loved ones have food allergies..Buy this book. You won't be dissapointed. I was not. I use it as a reference in food trials and ingredient reading. It won't stay on the shelf. This is a book you can use over and over again.

The rendition would be very helpful for any person attempting to deal
with internal inflammation deriving from foods and food allergies.
For instance, there may be a chronic immune response to lactose
i.e. lactose intolerance. Symptoms may include digestive diarrhea,
constipation, bloat and indigestion. Permeability of the
epithelium (gut) may lead to inflammation, combined allergies,
reactions after exercise - all due to eating the forbidden foods.
Anaphylactic reactions may occur in response to eating peanuts,
cow milk, egg, wheat with burning, itch, red skin and vomiting
symptomatology. MSG additives may tighten the face, jaw and chest.
The book is helpful in matching the unwelcome symptoms to the
foods which cause the symptoms to occur. Only when this has been
done, is it possible to eliminate certain types of chronic pain
related to foods that the body rejects.

Very useful book for someone with autoimmune problems.

I'm fairly certain I'm histamine intolerant and this book helped me figure it out.

I WISH SHE WOULD UPDATE IT!!!

update: April 2016

This book has literally improved my quality of life. It has helped me figure out so many of my symptoms. Don't rely on just a book though, see a dietician.

This is a GREAT book! I believe I have food intolerance, not allergies, but this book deals with both and is invaluable! I still have notes and post-it-notes all over the book! It is a very detailed, yet readable book.

Buy it!!

This is a very informative book. I am so glad I bought it and I keep it handy to refer to. My daughter has Mast Cell Activation Disorder and it certainly helps with knowing what foods she can eat and foods that she can't.

This book was an interesting read. Had some good theories/facts about chronic allergies. Worth a read if you want to try and pin point what could be going on. I'm interested in these types of books as my 10 year old has several of the more unusual allergies and intolerances.Fast delivery and great price.
