Book Description
Millions of children across the country have food sensitivities or allergies, and the number is on the rise. And most of these children don?t get to eat cookies, for fear of the reaction they might have from the wheat, or the peanuts. This book?s recipe?s take into account all of the most common food sensitivities like wheat and gluten, peanuts, or dairy. Each recipe can be modified to fit the dietary needs of the child. Divided into three sections-- snacks, main dishes, and treats--this book also provides information about how to find what you need in a regular grocery store, instead of requiring a separate trip to the natural foods store. With the recipes in this book, even the most sensitive child will get a cookie too.

Book Description
A food allergy is an immune system response to a food that the body mistakenly believes is harmful. Chemicals released by the immune system to protect the body trigger allergic reactions — varying widely from mild rashes to life-threatening anaphylactic shock. Often difficult to diagnose, food allergies can be lifetime afflictions — with no treatment other than avoiding the offending food. Dealing with Food Allergies presents up-to-date information on current diagnostic methods and treatment options. An authority on food allergies and intolerances, the author describes the effects of food allergies on the skin, mucous membranes, and respiratory and digestive tracts; discusses treatment by allergists and other healthcare professionals; and empowers readers to manage their food allergies.

Parent's Guide to Food Allergies: Clear and Complete Advice from the Experts on Raising Your Food Allergic Child

Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Few things are scarier than witnessing a child having an allergic reaction, whether it manifests itself as wheezing or life-threatening anaphylaxis. Parents will do anything to avoid having their child suffer such a reaction again, but treading the line between being prepared and being paranoid can be tricky. The Parent's Guide to Food Allergies was written by a team of people who shared their expertise from the medical lab and the kitchen; two M.D.s and one Ph.D. collaborated with author Marianne Barber, the mother of a food-allergic son, who writes with a personal slant so often absent from medical guides. Barber understands the daily coping skills that are needed when living with an allergic child, from banning particular foods entirely to reading ingredient labels.

Especially common allergens like peanuts, wheat,...

The Food Allergy Cure
Ellen W. Cutler

Apr 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Since she was a young child, Ellen Cutler suffered from constipation, bloating, irritability, cravings, and fatigue from food allergies. She later studied chiropractic with an emphasis on nutrition. Through studying a number of alternative therapies, she developed BioSET--a protocol to treat food allergies and conditions that may be caused by food allergies, such as asthma, headaches, ADHD, and many other disorders.

Cutler's theories, conclusions, and treatments may elicit raised eyebrows from M.D. allergy specialists, although they are commonly used by naturopaths. She diagnoses allergies by means of muscle testing: the patient holds a glass vial of the allergen in one hand while the health professional presses down on the other arm, with weakness indicating allergy. Part of her process uses acupressure to stimulate...

Food Allergies and Food Intolerance: The Complete Guide to Their Identification and Treatment
Jonathan Brostoff
0892818751
May 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
This third edition updates a work originally published in 1989 as The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance. Brostoff, a recognized authority on food allergy and author of numerous research studies, and Gamlin, a biochemist and journalist, clarify the difference between allergy and intolerance, explaining the immunological processes underlying hypersensitivity. Drawing on recent research, they identify common allergens and common treatment options. The authors also present a very detailed elimination diet and reintroduction schedule, their recommended method of diagnosing food intolerances. The text is detailed and thorough in the topics covered but lacks a satisfactory examination of alternative and/or complementary practices (many of which are excellent resources for allergy sufferers). Recommended for...

Food Allergies
William E. Walsh

Jan 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Allergist Walsh sympathizes with food allergy patients, for he has food allergies, too. He explains how such allergies function and details how to identify and treat specific problems. Labeling on foods doesn't help all that much, he says, because monosodium glutamate, for instance, hides under several names and processes. Besides MSG, other major culprits are acidic foods, low-calorie sweeteners, and refined sugar. One should always suspect a food allergy as lying at the root of an allergylike problem, he counsels, and food allergies are too often discounted. Age doesn't protect from allergies, and one can become allergic to a food that never before posed any problem. Those who feel they might be allergic shouldn't immediately repair to an allergist, though. Instead, they should go to their primary-care persons, who will...
