Editorial Reviews

In recent years the word "allergy" has become a catch-all phrase.   The term "food allergy" is misinterpreted as anything from a stomach ache to a rash, most often confused with a food intolerance. What many people do not understand is that food allergies are serious and can be life-threatening, just as an allergy to bee stings can be fatal.  

Through the experience of several families consisting of both children and adults with food allergies, this program clarifies the misinformation people commonly have about food allergies.  Most importantly, it illustrates that food allergies are something a person can live with. Several medical professionals such as  Dr. Scott Sicherer of the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute and doctors Harvey Leo and Ben Song of the Allergy & Immunology Associates of Ann Arbor discuss the possible causes of food allergies and its impact on the parents,  the allergic child, and siblings.  Other topics include the daily routine of an allergic individual;  the time and energy that goes into preparing to eat out, going to the park, visiting family and friends, and addressing the lack of understanding and education of  people who are unaware of the danger of this condition.

Supports groups include founder Melissa Dalton, of COFAF (Circle of Food Allergic Families) and Terry Furlong, co-founder of FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network), the largest advocacy organization for food allergies in the world.

The various coping challenges and strategies--medical, emotional and social-are addressed as are the positive insights people have gained from learning to effectively live with food allergies on a daily basis.  

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I just finished watching Kevin J. Lindenmuth's new documentary, "I'm Not Nuts": Living With Food Allergies. Am I allowed to make this required viewing for every childcare worker and educator in the country? Because I'd like to. This film clearly and carefully lays out the basics of what it's like to be food allergic and/or to have a food-allergic child. Visual mediums are so powerful--I think this will touch people who don't know much about food allergies in a way that written stories cannot. The videotape footage of a one-year old, egg-allergic girl scratching her hands at her first birthday party because she was allergic to the eggs in the cake made me weep. (Her parents didn't know about her allergy at the time, of course.)

For those who do live with food allergies, the information here is nothing new, or at least not very much of it. But the feeling is one of a support group meeting and allergist's visit right in your own living room. I found myself nodding my head in agreement and talking to the screen. "Yes! This is what it's like."

Full of interviews with the food allergic and their families, as well as interviews with allergy experts such as Terry Furlong, co-founder of FAAN, Scott Sicherer, M.D., researcher in the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute at Mount Sinai, and Harvey Leo, M.D. and Ben Song, M.D., of Allergy and Immunology Associates of Ann Arbor, MI, I think this documentary is a great resource.

We have been living with my son's severe nut allergy for about 6 years so we thought we knew everything. This documentary started out kinda 101, but it then share some issues we did not consider; good take-aways. So for use, it was time well spent.

This documentary was very informative. I would recommend buying this if you have anyone in your family with a food allergy. Being the parent of a child with peanut and tree nut allergies, this movie really hit home with me. It would be a great tool to help educate others about food allergies.

This documentary covers all aspects of life with food allergies particularly where children are involved. It seeks to answer questions such as, "Can you outgrow food allergies?" and "Should we have another child if there is a high possibility that child could also be allergic?" Parents and a few children are interviewed. Specialists clearly explain the challenges that face families with allergic children. One specialist understands the situation well because he not only has allergies himself but has an allergic child.
It ends on a positive note with what the future holds in allergy treatment.
