A person with food allergies is always at risk for sudden attack from the most unlikely source–the ordinary food that we all eat. Dealing with Food Allergies presents the information needed to detect food sensitivities and the ways to take action to protect yourself. Difficult to understand and diagnose, a food allergy can strike at any time if you are susceptible.

Without warning food can turn from being pleasurable and sustaining to becoming an unforgiving enemy. Dealing with Food Allergies approaches the subject with the latest in medical and scientific information to help those afflicted understand the physical process and treatment options of this hidden danger.

Designed to uncover food sensitivities, this book can help with the process of finding nutritionally adequate diets for people with food allergies. For those who must be alert to the serious threat to their health and their lives that some foods present, it provides the basis for careful evaluation of even the simplest foods. Reactions can vary widely from simple allergic reaction, like a rash, to the deadly consequences of serious anaphylactic shock.

Dealing with Food Allergies thoroughly describes the effects on the three major organ systems that are the target–the lungs and respiratory tract; the digestive tract; and the skin and mucous membranes and how the reaction must be analyzed and treated.
