This is a great book for the average person trying to figure out what may be causing their health issues whether it’s allergies or even food coma and brain fog. Dr. Bennett directs you to read a chapter a day over the course of the week and make practical changes that can help you and the ones you love! I used to suffer from severe migraines and fatigue without knowing the root cause, once I eliminated dairy as directed – I no longer suffer have any real headaches. I can think clearer, get through my day with more energy, and help those around me! Great information, letting my family borrow it!

This is an amazing cookbook! We have children with many food allergies and this book addresses so many of them and helps find alternatives to other foods that you may be allergic to. For example, we are allergic to corn but they have a recipe for tortillas that we could use and the same for oats. I have bought a bunch of allergy free cookbooks in the past but this is the BEST.

Following her program, you won’t have to give up your pet, get allergy shots, rotate foods, keep diet diaries or cook allergy-free recipes for the rest of your life. You will not only recover and enjoy an allergy-free life, you will gain invaluable understanding of health and well-being.

Forget Your Regular Doctors and Read This Book, February 16, 2014

I’m 30 years old and I’ve suffered from environmental allergies for just about all of my life. When I was younger I got frequent colds and had to receive allergy shots. Around 6th grade my allergies seemed to get worse as I had less energy and more of a foggy feeling all the time, probably the effect of my sinuses being somewhat inflamed.Through high school and college I can always remember feeling tired, less than alert, and having a kind of brain fog. I always said I felt like crap and assumed it had something to do with my allergies but didn’t think it could be fixed. I did all the pills and sprays with only a little temporary relief.Over 4 years ago all this changed for the worse. I woke up one day with intense sinus drainage, pressure throughout the front of my face and head, and an inability to be alert, energetic, or even sleep. It truly felt like I had a brain tumor. Quality of life went down to zero, I could not go a waking second without thinking about my allergies, I felt that miserable.

I went to the regular doctor and an ent and ended up having a surgery to fix my very deviated septum (inside nose). I still felt terrible and started the allergy shots again which provided a minimum amount of relief. Zyrtec, singulair, pataday eye drops also became daily routines to provide small levels or relief.

About a year and a half ago I picked up this book and started to research and implement some of the topics presented. The book focused on natural solutions and I went down the list one by one. Eating better made me feel better but it didn’t cure the allergy problem. Research inspired by this book allowed me to accidentally meet a Homeopathic doctor (homeopathy is mentioned in the book, although I failed to initially research it) that provided me a tailored remedy to my condition.

After 6 months on this remedy my allergies have definitely improved to where I can enjoy life and not think about my allergies all the time. I still have a long way to go (I still take the anti-histamines) but I have dramatically improved my condition. I would have loved to have known this 4 years ago.

Here is my lesson for you: If you have some sort of allergy problem the solution is probably in this book. Research the topics/protocols it puts forward and implement them. Consult a naturopathic or homeopathic doctor to perfect the process, often times you need outside help to fully address your issue. Keep an open mind and don’t assume you don’t have one of the problems listed in the book just because it seems strange. Assume nothing and research everything.

This book should serve as your bedrock in your war against allergies, it’s up to you to expand off of it. It’s definitely a different type of medicine which is a good thing because it has the ability to do something regular medicine doesn’t: FIX YOUR CONDITION as opposed to just managing it. I hope this review helps, certainly the book will.


Understanding and Managing Your Child’s Food Allergies

For children with food allergies, eating—one of the basic functions of life—can be a nightmare. Children who suffer or become dangerously ill after eating peanuts, seafood, milk, eggs, wheat, or a host of other foods require constant vigilance from caring, concerned parents, teachers, and friends.In this empathetic and comprehensive guide, Dr. Scott H. Sicherer, a specialist in pediatric food allergies, gives parents the information they need to manage their children’s health and quality of life. He describes why children develop food allergy, the symptoms of food allergy (affecting the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, and the respiratory system), and the role of food allergy in behavioral problems and developmental disabilities.

Parents will learn how to recognize emergency situations, how to get the most out of a visit with an allergist, what allergy test results mean, and how to protect their children—at home, at school, at summer camp, and in restaurants.

Informative, compassionate, and practical, this guide will be indispensable for parents, physicians, school nurses, teachers, and everyone else who cares for children with food allergies.

As good as an appointment with Dr. Sicherer!, July 31, 2013

We bought this book when our 6 month old was diagnosed with milk, egg, peanut and tree nut allergies. For the next 18 months, it’s been my go-to guide when I have a question, need to prepare for another check-up with her allergist, etc. Today, we were lucky enough to have an appointment with Dr. Sicherer and he was great.
But more than that, I left thinking how well the book was written… reading it was nearly as good as an appointment with him (minus the blood work). This is a great go-to book and written in the language of parents – frank, yet supportive. Can’t recommend it enough.
