An epidemic of allergies is spreading around the world. One billion people suffer from allergic diseases such as asthma, hay fever, eczema, and food allergies. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. In this groundbreaking book, award-winning doctor Leo Galland, M.D., reveals the shocking rise of hidden allergies that lead to weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, depression, joint pain, headaches, ADHD, digestive problems, and much more. Astonishing new research shows how each of these is linked to the immune imbalance that is at the root of allergy.

A brilliant clinician, Dr. Galland has unlocked the power of this breakthrough science to help thousands of patients who have struggled with mysterious symptoms answer the question: "Doctor, what’s wrong with me?" Here, he is joined by his son, Jonathan Galland, J.D., a passionate health writer and environmental advocate, in exposing the truth that just as the earth’s environment is out of balance, our bodies are out of balance. The modern world, with pollution, unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise, and excessive exposure to antibiotics, is fueling the rise in allergies.

The Allergy Solution takes an in-depth look at how we can balance immunity through nutrition and lifestyle to reverse allergies without drugs. It offers an easy nutritional program, starting with a Three-Day Power Wash designed to "clear the tracks," to help us take back control. Do you suffer from asthma, eczema, or sinusitis? Are you sick of pain, fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, depression, anxiety, or wondering what is behind your mysterious symptoms? Let Dr. Galland’s clinical experience and unique insights into cutting-edge science guide you back to health.

Extraordinary, educational, and practical resource for both allergy resolution and superior health! Working hard to manage allergies, asthma, and migraines since childhood, I’ve tried and read almost everything: prescription drugs, shots, homeopathy, acupuncture, avoidance, different allergists, ENTs, and nutritionists, outdated texts, and the list goes on. But none of my efforts have resulted in satisfactory resolution. At last, Dr. Galland provides a practical playbook for that helps me solve the root causes of my allergies. The Galland solution begins with understanding the breadth of “internal” and “external” issues that cause our unique allergy symptoms with very person-specific triggers. In my experience, conventional allergy remedies often focus on symptom reduction and often fail to account for what makes each of our bodies unique. Instead, based on peer-reviewed medical research in easy-to-read language, Galland highlights the critical role of T-reg cells, specific nutritional deficiencies, chronic inflammation, and microbiome imbalance in effecting our unique immune and allergic response. Galland also describes how environmental issues like chemicals (in our air, water, food, the products we put on our bodies, our homes and workplace), mold, and even pollens made worse by global warming increase our toxic burden, inflammation, and allergic load. Most surprising, Galland points out that available allergy testing measures only one of multiple mechanisms of allergy, which means that our triggers may remain hidden with both delayed and unexpected reactions. Imagine possible sensitivity to bananas only during ragweed season if you’re allergic to ragweed. To resolve those issues, Galland provides very specific tools, tips, patient stories, medical findings, recipes, and recommendations based on over 40 years of collective, clinical experience, research, and medical education. For example, Chapter 4 explores how to unmask our person-specific allergic triggers. I was especially struck by Galland’s recommendation to consider an allergy to a food eaten every day if the symptom is worse in the evening or as the day goes on. Or, how today’s symptom might be due to a food eaten two or three days ago. Chapter 6 describes the 3-day Power Wash—a backed-by-science, nutritious, and simple 3-day meal plan with recipes and rationale for food-allergy elimination. Chapter 8 discusses the importance of an immune-balanced diet to fight allergy naturally with non-allergenic food. As Galland says, “Optimal immune function depends on optimal nutrition. The food you eat nourishes the cells that prevent allergy, help fight infection, and work to control inflammation. The best diet is not the same for everybody. Optimal nutrition is individualized nutrition.” In other words, how can we resolve our allergies if we consume products that cause inflammation in our bodies? Despite the book’s title, The Allergy Solution really seems like an overall healing path for anyone who cares about optimal wellness.

As a practicing pediatrician for almost 30 years i am confronted with myriad clinical dilemmas that Dr. Galland presents in this brief but comprehensive, eminently readable volume. His insights are based on scrupulously collected research data, his observations based on decades of clinical practice, his tools logical, accessible, and non-intrusive. How satisfying to offer my patients real solutions to chronic problems. Bravo Dr. Galland!
