Overview

Allergy Solutions is part of the You Are What You Eat series of holistic books that target common health problems and offer practical advice suited for modern living. This book offers a comprehensive guide to choosing food that minimises or treats our allergic reactions.

Why are allergies dramatically on the increase? What is the role of the immune system? What is the histamine connection? How do allergy tests work? Is there a connection between diet and allergy? How does stress contribute to allergic reactions? What is pollution doing to our immunity? How can we boost our immunity with nutrients and herbs? How can we protect our children? Allergy Solutions tackles all of these problems -- and more -- guiding us through our ever more allergenic environment.

Allergy Solutions also provides a recommended course of action, with eating and supplement plans for specific allergies including asthma, eczema, migraines, allergic bowel disorders, food allergies, rhinitis, hives, and psoriasis.
