Food Intolerance?
Food Sensitivity?
Food Reactions?

Could food be making you ill? How can you tell? Are you troubled by: Dairy? Wheat? Gluten? Nuts? Soy? Additives? Dr Ford's 30 years experience helps you get to grips with food allergy.
Unfortunately, many doctors have little knowledge of food reactions. Often, people with unexplained symptoms are told "there's nothing wrong with you." Food allergy symptoms can be diagnosed and treated. Why wait?

For example, Katrina writes on facebook:
“I took my eldest boy (now 23 mths) to the hospital when he had problems when 4 wks old: he was failing-to-thrive (not growing) and had feeding problems. But the pediatricians at the hospital didn't believe in allergies. Two weeks later we went to see Dr Ford. It turns out that Tomasz has multiple food allergies - no wonder he screamed when feeding and wasn't putting on weight!”
