The Total Food Allergy Health and Diet Guide
Did you know that food allergies affect as many as 5% to 6% of young children and 3% to 4% of adults in westernized countries?
Every year, millions of people have an allergic reaction to food. Thankfully, most allergies cause mild symptoms, but some can be very serious, and even life-threatening. Some lucky people outgrow their allergies, but for many, allergies are a lifelong challenge. While there is no cure for food allergies, allergic reactions can be managed through early detection and/or diagnosis and strict avoidance of certain foods.
This comprehensive book is an indispensible guide for anyone managing food allergies or intolerances, and even those who suspect they might have an allergy and require the necessary information for verification. But beyond simple information, you’ll also find practical advice on how to plan an allergy-free diet, as well as 150 delicious and nutritious recipes that are free of common allergens.
