5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Resource
I love this book.I am a retired family doctor, andhave been gifting it widely. Even when I am not sure the underlying cause of someone's GI distress, a trial of these recipes and a look at the author's material cannot go amiss....especially since they are TASTY, not drab and discouraging!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Allergy Cookbook for Universities and Colleges
We were looking to expand our gluten-free menus for our students at Penn State Campus Dining. Lisa Lundy's cookbook has been an incredible resource for us. We sampled 14 recipes from the cookbook (cupcakes, cookies, mini-muffins, rolls, brownies, trail mix, and granola)with our staff and students. Resounding success! Here are some of their comments on the carrot cake and chocolate cupcakes; very moist, awesome, rich, moist, great flavor, super moist, great flavor, couldn't tell the difference. The chocolate chip cookies and brownie bites were also a big hit. Reviews for both items included; delicious! chewy & moist, super moist, can't tell they're GF. Our students and staff decided to add the cupcakes and mini muffins to our gluten-free program this spring. The granola bars, granola and trail mix were also big hits. I'd recommend this cookbook to anyone looking for delicious and easy GF recipes.

5-0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE BOOK Part One of Book is Worth Every Penny
This book is an incredible source for information. The first 129 pgs. are worth every penny spent in obtaining this book. The rotation diet is layed out so easily that even my husband could follow it. I love the section that tells you what foods are in which family. The recipes are wonderful, but the author herself is even more wonderful. She has spent a great deal of time helping me, as my children have many different food allergies, especially to spices. I would recommend this book over any other, it truely is a MUST HAVE in your kitchen!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!
This is a great book if your are new to the GF, CF diet. The history in the book is fabulous and so are the recipes!

2-0 out of 5 stars Would not recommend for those with Corn Allergies
I felt a little disillusioned with the title. I was hoping "super allergy girl" would have more grain free and corn free recipes. As a gluten free mom with multiple food allergies and an intolerance to many "g-free grains", this book was not a good match for our family. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars When's the Second Edition Coming?
This is an excellent book and I've found it very useful in general pediatric practice. However, it is now 6 years old--a lifetime in clinical practice. A new edition is much needed.

Medical texts are a field where, despite my love of them, I think real books are obsolete. Tomes like Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics or Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine are too heavy and too expensive. The also quickly become outdated. Far better to have frequently updated information in "the clouds" for subscription access.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for the Allergist/Asthma/Immunologist specialist
This is by far the best reference book I have seen in the Field of Allergy/Asthma/Immunology.The chapters are well written (I wish "Middleton's Allergy Principle and Practice" was this well written) and complete. Charts are clear.There is a small picture section in the front which as some nice clear pictures (although some a a little small)--Perhaps the authors can expand this section with the next edition, which I'll eagerly purchase. Let's hope someone can come out with a similar quality book for the adult population. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Allergy Solution for Dogs
This is a great book!Very helpful!Received very quickly in great condition.I highly recommend this company for future purchases.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book but vague
The book had a lot of information about getting your dog tested for allergies.We have, so half of the book was useless to us.There are some good points. It does tell you how to make your own food (and which vitamins you need to add) which I am trying to do to save money on the prescription food.Overall if you are questioning if you dog has allergies it would be more informative than if you know it already has them.

5-0 out of 5 stars good book
I think that Dr. Shawn has a good grip on taking care of your pet naturally and with the vet info available when needed.I prefer the natural path and he is very into that.I appreciate his care and research for naturally curing my pet.

I was looking for a book that would help SOLVE my problems with dogs and allergies - this book just gives examples of what to look for (is it or is it not allergies) and suggests seeing the vet.Been there, done that - was looking for more creative ideas than seeing the vet and putting them on steroids (the standard prescription).I will keep looking for something to resolve my dogs' allergies and skin issues ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the first few chapters!
I bought this several years ago while breastfeeding our eldest who had severe food allergies.The recipes are good - but the beginning sections, where the author talks about recipe substitutions and how various alternatives will work in modifying recipes, is the very best part of this cookbook!When I was overwhelmed parenting a newborn and dealing with her allergies as well, this book saved me time adjusting my diet to make it safe for my daughter without starving myself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good, Especially for beginners
This book was wonderful for me. I bought it based on the reviews of this book and many other Allergy cookbooks on Amazon and I couldn't be happier. The book is full of information on allergy, intolerance, grains and other foods which I found very helpful. The explanation of the rotary diet and sample menus is also helpful and works great for me. I'm glad someone else already did the leg work.So far every recipe I've tried has exceeded my expectations. All of my other attempts from other allergy recipes were just so-so. Of course no allergy cookbook can completely cover all of your personal allergies, I think this one does a good job of diversity and the author gives substitutions on some of the recipes. Highly recommend.

5-0 out of 5 stars Alternative flour education!
This book is an excellent one for baking if your child has an allergy to wheat.My child cannot tolerate kamut and spelt, which the author uses often, but the author almost always gives a list of 4 or 5 different flours that will also work with each recipe.And, she will make note, for example, if more or less liquid is called for if you use a different flour. If an egg is called for, she'll also give you a substitute.Very thorough.I've read a bazillion food allergy cookbooks, and this one by far is the most flexible.

4-0 out of 5 stars Try the crackers!
Part 1 is particularly useful, with well researched chapters on understanding and managing food allergies.People with multiple food allergies will still have to make some substitutions to many of these recipes, but Ms. Gioannini uses healthy ingredients, and has many inspired recipe ideas. My personal favorites are the recipes for Oat Crackers, Buckwheat Thins, and Flour Tortillas, all of which are safe for the majority of food allergy sufferers, and are often hard to find premade in stores. So try the crackers!

4-0 out of 5 stars Some good recipes, some "out there" recipes
I like this book, it's a little much in some cases, but generally worth the price.The one problem that I do have with it is that she has recipes that contain spelt and kamut flour.My daughter is allergic to wheat so spelt and kamut are not an option for us.The other issue I have with the book is that I never seem to have all the ingredients in my cupboards that she uses.I'm in a constant battle to keep things at hand with this one.However I do feel that the author has cooked these dishes, and eaten them herself and for the most part they do work.Which is not always the case in the allergy recipe world. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars YOU SHOULD BUY THIS!!!!!
Already, a few of the tips in this book have saved us from some very dangerous situations that we would not have known to be cautious of. I HIGHLY suggest that if there is anyone in your family with serious food allergy issues you get this book and read it, then pass it along to others in your family or your child's caretaker to read. GREAT PRODUCT!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, Empowering, Practical and Easy on the Eyes
The author covers just the right amount of key information in one place. This book covers how to prepare for food allergic emergencies, what you can expect or should be ready for during social situations, doctor visits, travel, day care, school, and even how to create safe lunch environments for the food allergic child; these among many other safety tips printed therein.She covers how to get involved and be proactive in your child's safety management and ends the book with appendices packed full of resources for the learning caregiver to reference.

If you are new to or currently caring for a child with food allergies...Buy this book.I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Allergy Book Ever!
This book should be read by every parent with a child who has food allergies.It tells you how to cope, survive and enjoy life with a child with food allergies.It is simply the best book written about children with food allergies.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good basic book, where's the prevention?
Typical allergy book. Well written.

Isn't it amazing that as advanced as our science has become that doctors have NO CLUE as to what causes allergies?

Think about this (and this quote is from the "Idiot's Guide" who also claimed that the cause of food allergies is unknown):

"In 1839, the French physiologist Francois Magendie (1783-1855), while investigating the effects of substances on living organisms, created allergylike symptoms in animals, and found that animals sensitized to egg white by injection died after a subsequent injection."

Did you vaccinate your child before s/he developed food allergies? Is there a link? Yes. If you vaccinate your child with peanut protein, she will develop a peanut allergy!

If you search on "trade secret", you will find that pharmaceutical companies do not list all the ingredients on the package insert. That food oils can be part of the adjuvant but don't appear on the list of ingredients. To find out what foods could have traces of food protein in the vaccine you will need to read patents. Search on "patent vaccine adjuvant" or "patent culture medium".

So what is happening is vaccines have trace amounts of foods such as beef, egg, chicken, rabbit, etc from the culture medium. They also have trace amounts of foods such as soy, corn, peanut, sesame, fish, shellfish, canola, wheat germ (about every oil known is used) that are in the mixed oils used in the adjuvant. So every vaccine will not have all the trace amounts of food protein. Some will have some of this. Others will have some of that. Some may even be totally free of trace amounts of food protein.

Bottom line. As a parent you have to make a choice, possibility of measles and mumps etc OR possibility of fatal food allergy. Pretty lousy choice.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For All Food Allergic Families

Product Description

For children with food allergies, eating -- one of the basic functions of life -- can be a nightmare. Children who suffer or become dangerously ill after eating peanuts, seafood, milk, eggs, wheat, or a host of other foods require constant vigilance from caring, concerned parents, teachers, and friends.

In this empathetic and comprehensive guide, Dr. Scott H. Sicherer, a specialist in pediatric food allergies, gives parents the information they need to manage their children's health and quality of life. He describes why children develop food allergy, the symptoms of food allergy (affecting the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, and the respiratory system), and the role of food allergy in behavioral problems and developmental disabilities. Parents will learn how to recognize emergency situations, how to get the most out of a visit with an allergist, what allergy test results mean, and how to protect their children -- at home, at school, at summer camp, and in restaurants.

Informative, compassionate, and practical, this guide will be indispensable for parents, physicians, school nurses, teachers, and everyone else who cares for children with food allergies.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good resource
This is a good book.There is much more information in this book in regards to anaphylactic reactions than the gastroentestinal upset (eosinophilic esophagitis)kind of allergy.I brought it to my allergist and they knew the author and highly recommended this book too.

3-0 out of 5 stars Allergy experts are not always available
He does a good job describing the various reactions and problems a parent can have dealing with a child's food allergies. He overemphasizes the physician's role. It is the parent who has to look out for the child not the physician who sees the child every few months as a patient. He promotes the "hygiene hypothesis" as the cause of the sudden rise in food allergies among children. I had thought the book was pretty good until I got to that point. He also doesn't explore the possibility that trace amounts of food protein from the culture medium and vaccine adjuvants in vaccinations could contribute to the growing problem of food allergies.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
I am a physician and I can assure you, this is the best book out there to get clear prospective and understanding about food allergies.
Each chapter has clear focus, breadth of knowledge that gives vital information and suggests remedial actions to prevent allergic reaction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough book with tons of variations
My favorite part of this book, besides the complete explanation of food allergies at the beginning, is how varied the recipes are. A complete chapter of 'mixes' and substitutions for every type of allergy means that you can change each recipe to fit your particular allergy. If you're allergic to wheat, for instance, there are several mixes in that chapter you can use to substitute for flour. If you're allergic to eggs, there are a couple of egg substitutes you can make to use for eggs in recipes that call for them.

And the recipes are really good. There's nothing too fancy or difficult to make. I really love this book!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not all recipes exclude all of the allergens!
I bought this book because it listed all of the allergens that I need to avoid for my 2 year old daughter.When the book arrived, only a small percent of the recipes exclude all of the allergens listed. It was very dissappointing and I am still looking for a cookbook that excludes all of these things.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Dog-earred Standby
I bought this book many years ago when it was called Five Years Without Food.My children suffer from multiple food sensitivities and environmental illness. Tthis book has been invaluable for maintaining an interesting rotation diet.It is not meant for folks who have just a few food allergies or are only gluten/casein free--you will probably disappointed.If you need to keep your foods separate without introducing too many ingredients into a recipe, this is a wonderfully helpful book.I have almost exclusively used this book for our grain baking and dessert needs.This book has also helped me understand how to come up with my own recipes by substituting foods that we can eat, for some that we can't.These recipes are flexible and can be customized as needed.And yes, we have Kangaroo on our diet out of necessity, also Camel.

My seven year old daughter has multiple food allergies but gets shots that allow her to eat a core set of foods.However, there are still many foods that she can't eat.She actually can't eat many of the alternative foods used in the book, but can eat enough grains that I can use this book to give her some baked goods without yeast, baking powder, or eggs.The recipes are easy to modify slightly to fit other needs even for those of us who don't consider ourselves "good" cooks.I make the pancake and muffin recipes often and use the pancakes for "sandwich" bread since they are so much less crumbly than other non-yeast breads.We even tried a modified version of the almost-normal German Chocolate Cake, which she liked quite a lot. I put chopped peaches in the barley muffins (made with butter because we can't use oils) and they taste a lot like peach cobbler.Yum.Even her classmates like these muffins.If you are hungry for something made with grains, this book has recipes that work!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resources for Complex Food Allergies
This book includes great information about the diagnosis and treatment of complex food allergies, as well as a wide variety of recipes for special diets.One of the features that I like best is that the recipes include a wide variety of substitution options so that you may individualize the recipe to your unique food restrictions.This book met the need I had to adapt my daughter's allergic food restrictions to her decision to become a vegetarian.After reviewing this most recent of Nickie's books, combined with her older ones, I was able to develop enough new recipe ideas to help my daughter comply with her increased diet restrictions.The new recipes added much desired variety and they tasted great.Two of the most fun surprises in this book included cranberry sauce on page 126 (which I chose to sweeten with date sugar) and kiwi sorbet on 201 (which I chose to sweeten with stevia).

5-0 out of 5 stars beats all other allergy cookbooks, hands down
For people with many severe allergies to foods, this is the most comprehensive, best-organized cookbook I have found.It is clearly written, well-researched and informative without resorting to hype, and the recipes clearly have been kitchen-tested.The drawbacks of some recipes are noted (e.g., some alternative grain recipes are more crumbly or dense than recipes using wheat flour).Sources for unusual foods are listed; and the internet provides a great marketpalce for finding the rest.I found it easy to adapt the basic rotation diet to fit the foods I can tolerate best and purchase locally and online.

The author has done us a great favor by turning her many trials with allergies into a treasure-trove for the rest of us in the same boat. She not only groups foods by phylogenetic families to alert to possible cross-reactivity, but also mentions the newer, emerging findings on pollen-food interactions due to non-genetic similarity of protein forms.Best of all, instead of leaving the reader feeling hopeless in the face of so many potential cross-reactions, she outlines a workable way to cope.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of resources and info
My young daughter has food allergies, so I ordered this book specifically for help with the rotation diet. This is the only book I could even find WITH a rotation diet and it has lots of good ideas for people who suffer from food allergies. I do recommend it. ... Read more

Product Description
A food allergy is an immune system response to a food that the body mistakenly believes is harmful. Chemicals released by the immune system to protect the body trigger allergic reactions — varying widely from mild rashes to life-threatening anaphylactic shock. Often difficult to diagnose, food allergies can be lifetime afflictions — with no treatment other than avoiding the offending food. Dealing with Food Allergies presents up-to-date information on current diagnostic methods and treatment options. An authority on food allergies and intolerances, the author describes the effects of food allergies on the skin, mucous membranes, and respiratory and digestive tracts; discusses treatment by allergists and other healthcare professionals; and empowers readers to manage their food allergies. Illustrations, charts, and tables are included. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Dealing with Food Allergies
The rendition would be very helpful for any person attempting to deal
with internal inflammation deriving from foods and food allergies.
For instance, there may be a chronic immune response to lactose
i.e. lactose intolerance. Symptoms may include digestive diarrhea,
constipation, bloat and indigestion. Permeability of the
epithelium (gut) may lead to inflammation, combined allergies,
reactions after exercise - all due to eating the forbidden foods.
Anaphylactic reactions may occur in response to eating peanuts,
cow milk, egg, wheat with burning, itch, red skin and vomiting
symptomatology. MSG additives may tighten the face, jaw and chest.
The book is helpful in matching the unwelcome symptoms to the
foods which cause the symptoms to occur. Only when this has been
done, is it possible to eliminate certain types of chronic pain
related to foods that the body rejects.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than my allergist
This book provide more information than my allergist bothered to tell me.I highly recommend to read it before you go to your doctor, even if you are just being tested for pollen, etc.I wish I would have found it before all the time and money spent at this particular doctor.

3-0 out of 5 stars Book has good layout
The book was easier to read than some of the others on the same topic because there was more white space on the pages and larger print. The chapter on preventing food allergies is of little value. She refers to the "hygiene theory" (that says be are basically too clean) and feeding the baby solids too soon being the cause. She seems ignorant of the possibility that the trace amounts of food protein in vaccines (mixed vegetable and animal oils used in the vaccine adjuvant) could be the primary cause of food allergies. The book has chapters on different food allergies and suggestions on coping.

4-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Helpful
Dr.Joneja made a very difficult situation easier.As a first time mom my newborn son was having terrible stomach issues from foods I was eating and the proteins in my breast milk.With guidance from the book we were able to identify the problem and work towards solving it.I am very grateful to have found this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great
My son, who just turned 1, is actually milk protein intolerant.I am very lucky it isn't a true allergy, but it is still very difficult to deal with.This book made me feel as if I had more of a handle on the situation.It helped me to understand the actual scientific/physiological reasons for allergies/intolerances.While reading this book, it became clear my son has other intolerances/allergies that I have not yet identified (which was my hunch).The information on how allergies manifest and their symptoms and signs was helpful in that it made me know that all these things that I have been noticing are not me being a paranoid mother.It is difficult for doctors to see the whole picture when you take them in on different days for say, irritability, tickly ears, stomach upset, etc.This book helped me to put it all together.I highly recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fresh food NOT good for you ?
Indeed in many cases a particular healthy fresh food may be detrimental to your little one.As a nurturing parent you clean, cuddle, and feedyour child.But you sence that there is something wrong.A differential diagnosis to be considered is food allergy.Food allergy and intolerance is more prevalent than you might guess ( 8%).Unfortunately not recognizing it causes the affected child distress.A 15 minute visit with the doctor may prove beneficial. But there is no single reliable lab test that can prove that a child is intolerant to a spreific food or additive.Specialty consultations are in order.And thats where this well written functional book fits in.Comprehensive chapters range through symptoms - detection - diagnosis - prevention - treatment.Celiac disease, autism, eczema, atypical behavior are just a few conditions which are highlighted.Dozens of diets and specific food allergies are detailed in this informative book.Step by step processes are explained by a very well qualified author.She presents methods for analyzing and treating problems, never losing sight of the child's nutritional needs.

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay
This book is ok, though I have found many bits of information that are either outdated or just plain misleading.Like recommending clarified butter for use if you should not have dairy.That may work for a small number of people with minor allergies who happen to get some that is 100% casein free, but it is very unlikely.There was also a doom and gloom attitude about the dangers of a restricted diet while breastfeeding and not a lot of support about sticking with it as being the best thing for your child.Plus outdated information on recommended breastfeeding guidelines and a lack of practical advice for living with food allergies and the emotional aspect of sticking to it made this book not worth owning, IMO.There are much better out there.So use common sense and research more in this book before you follow the recommendations. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars one of my top 3 choices for allergy cookbook
The only reason I didn't rate it with 5 stars is because I do like the "Sophie Safe Cooking" a little bit better. However, this and it's prequel ("What's to Eat?) are both very good for moms who are new to allergen-free cooking.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Cooking Resource
I'm having to adjust my diet to accomodate for dairy/egg allergies.I love to cook but most of my recipes used at least one of these. Have found some great additions for entrees to replace stuff I can't eat anymore.I haven't had good results with her baking recipes (I've tried a couple) but the book was worth it for providing good menu additions for entrees and sides.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a MUST HAVE Cookbook!
Whether you have a food allergy or not, you MUST get this cookbook.I'm a busy working mom who is challenged to quickly put together healthy and tasty homecooked meals for my food-allergic family.Linda's cookbooks have given me the solution.The recipes are easy with clear directions, and they come out great every time.I like that most recipes use everyday ingredients that we usually have on hand, and they are delicious!I also love that these recipes don't taste like "special allergy-safe dishes" that compromise on taste.Not at all!They are just good recipes for yummy dishes, and they happen to be safe for those with these allergies.I have a ton of cookbooks and love to cook... but seriously, I almost always use Linda's recipes, whether I'm cooking for my family, or a potluck, or a dinner party.And people always ask for the recipes.Try the Apricot Glazed Salmon, the Spinach and Apple Salad, the Iced Honey Cookies, the Fudge Filled Banana Muffins...the list goes on and on.Take the stress out of figuring out what to cook...buy this book (and Linda's first one).You will wonder how you ever lived without it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have for families with these food allergies
This book, as well as her earlier cookbook, is fantastic!!My son has the dairy-egg-peanut allergy & my husband has a dairy allergy.I've never owned a cookbook that I could make every recipe in it & feed it to my family, and I was running out of new meal ideas when I found these books.There are wonderful cake & frosting recipes and recipes for all courses and occaisions.So many new and simple ideas of ways to prepare chicken, potatoes, rice, desserts and more!!If you have these food allergies in your house the only question is why don't you have this cookbook??!!I ordered this one along with her earlier one "What's to Eat" and I tell you, not one recipe is repeated.Order them both - you won't be disappointed!!

5-0 out of 5 stars helpful and cute
my 3 year old was just found to have tree nut allergies and this book was a wonderful way for us to talk about it. we also took it to his daycare/preschool and had the teacher read it to the class. i also ordered "mommy, is this safe?" which was a good companion book to this one as it has real photographs.

3-0 out of 5 stars Helpful little book
This book was pretty helpful for our 2 year old who just recovered from his first nut allergy incident. He is able to talk about Chad having a nut allergy which was our reason for getting it. The story is a little old for him as Chad is clearly in elementary school dealing with things like nut-free tables, bake sales, etc. but it's not a bad way to introduce future dangers as we learn to navigate a nut free world (neither of his parents have any food allergies)
One downside is it refers to Chad being special because he has nut allergies. That part we gloss over when reading it to our son, we want him to know he is normal, not special, because lots of other kids have the same. Otherwise, definitely a good buy (sight onseen).

4-0 out of 5 stars Great read for pre schoolers
Chad the Allergic Chipmunk is an excellent book for explaining to my 4 year daughter what may happen as she has a severe nut allergy. It has now been lent to her pre school for the teachers to read and explain to her friends.

My 5 year old son LOVED this book.It brought tears to my eyes to see him sit down with this book after I read it to him and for him to flip through each page very slowly asking me questions and telling me what was going on on the pages.He has never reacted this way towards a book before so I know he was connecting with "Chad".I feel this book has given him a better understanding of his food allergy and I am very happy about this purchase. ...

I used Dr. Plechner as a vet several years ago when my Aussie mix was throwing up every morning.He gave me the book, which explained a lot, and after a while on the duck and sweet potato dog food (I joked about her gourmet meals costing more than mine), she improved.Great vet, and I learned a tremendous amount about not only what to feed -- or avoid feeding - any of my dogs, but also about the irresponsible breeding practices which cause the problem... and how to test for the genetic health of an animal before I adopt.Excellent resource.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for Allergic Newbies
We have been dealing with my son's food allergies since he was a baby (7 years) and so much of what was in the book is already "old hat" to us (whether we're at home or in a restaurant).For someone who is dealing with allergies for the first time, it is nice to have the steps so easily laid out, but for those who already know the game, it's already very familiar.I'm not sure the book offered great benefits to our family at this stage; however, it would have been useful several years ago.

5-0 out of 5 stars Versatile guide
"Let's Eat Out!" is a wonderful guide that offers information to a wide range of individuals, not just those with special diets.This book and its supplemental "passports" teach about a variety of ethnic cuisines that would make even the pickiest eaters venture out and expand their dietary choices.

I bought this book thinking it would be of great help to me.I found it to be absolutely useless. There are so many other valuable tools to use and informative books out there that I can only say - use your common sense - you know what you can and can't have & all you have to do is ask the server to check in the kitchen to make sure that thee either isn't, or won't be, any gluten ingredients used.I live very near NYC and I can name so many gluten free restaurants that weren't included that it's ridiculous.

3-0 out of 5 stars Naet ?????
Found the book fairly interesting.Decided to go to a NAET practicioner because I have heard some positive feedback about a different practitioner.My husband and I thought he was a bit crazy.He sounded more like a psychic than anything elso.He was asking the "air" what I was allergic to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Her best book yet!!
I found this the most informative of several of Nambudripad's books.She explained alot of things that I didn't see in her other books, like saying that NAET will probably cure the person's RNA and DNA so they no longer carry the allergic gene to the substance.No other allergy treatment like IVIG or EPD shots have been able to change the genetic code of the person.I'm hoping my grandkids will not have these allergies like my parents, myself and my kids have.This book gave me the hope and evidence that this is possible.Nambudripad wrote this book in a very concise way.There is a wealth of valid info in this book.

Now, after 25 treatments for myself by a practitioner, I can say that NAET really does work.I found a practitioner and it was only $40 per treatment. I was okay with the price considering what you get in return. It removes the allergies but better yet, it gives you permanent better health. You will be surprised what symptoms it relieves that you were having from allergies.We have a whole family that was allergic to almost everything.It has relieved my Rosacea, insomnia and focusing problems in my kids.NAET done properly, really does work.We are continuing treatments for all of us.This may take a few years to complete 100-200 items.

We have learned to self-NAET, after watching the practitioner, reading a few of these books and from the internet.It is an easy process.You do not even need thevials. But we sometimes put allergies in glass bottles or hold them or write the word on a piece of paper or the name of the person we are allergic to on a paper.Don't do this if you have anaphalactic reactions.Follow the book and use a surrogate.

For treatment without the vials, we put a paper with the allergy written on our Thymus and have the subject think about what is on the paper. The paper works!!WOW!!NAET - ing for person allergies in our family has made for much more harmonious family relations. NAET-ing for foods and chemicals has made life much more pleasant.We felt like we were in prison with sickness from all these allergies.NAET is the key that has unlocked our family's prison door.

Just follow the book exactly and make sure you know how to muscle test first.It is something that my 10-year old can do for me and his older brother can now do it.It is that easy.My kids can muscle test and NAET each other and it works!! It was so nice to go out to a dinner buffet the other night and let my kids eat what they wanted.But better yet, our health has improved and my kids are focusing better and grades are improving.So tap away!!

Make sure you do the Brain and Body connection first.Be persistent and don't expect to see huge results until about the 8th treatment.Then you will know that it is helping and curing your conditions.Keep a journal of life before and then read the journal after the 10th treatment. You will be surprised!! You will need the white Guide Book if you are self-treating.If you have autism or adhd, buy the yellow book also as the treatment order is slightly different and includes things like immunizations and neurotransmitters that are good for this population.I have personally seen NAET cure a child of an Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

NAET really works.This is a great book to start with.

5-0 out of 5 stars Naet: Say Good-Bye to Your Allergies
i have only recently learned that I have many food allergies.Naet has been helpful in resolving many of these allergies.I still have quite a few treatments left but I already feel much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars She is a genius!
I don't know what you other people's problems are.This NAET is the best invention ever!It's not some miracle fix -k-It takes time and hard work, but it does eliminate allergies permanently and in doing that NAET eliminates health problems.My nephews celiac is gone for good!He can eat anything he wants now without any problems.My mom is off her thyroid medication she's been on for as long as I can remember.She should be off a couple others soon.I'm not taking any medications now.This NAET stuff is truly a miracle!I am trying to tell everyone I know about it.I even put comments on facebook as my status everyday of health issues that can be fixed with NAET.I truly believe in it, and I stand by Devi 100%.But you can't expect your problems to go away in a few visits people!My friends son who got me interested in it in the first place was doing treatments for severe eczema.He had a bleeding, oozing rash from head to toe.At first with NAET he started to get worse.He had to go visit his daddy for a couple weeks, and when he came back, he was almost clear.Usually when we went with his daddy, he'd come back bleeding badly.After some time with his mom to get back off a few things he was still allergic to (hadn't got to them yet with NAET), his rash went away. He is eating yogurt that use to give him a rash, and when he does have a little rash, the yogurt now clears that up instead of causes it.But again, that was after hard work and continual visits.Some severe conditions you've had for a while can take up to 2 years, but they will go away, and you'll feel like a million bucks!

2-0 out of 5 stars nav
This book just explains what NAET is and that a NAET practitioner can use his expertise to get rid of your allergies. If you are buying this book for self help, to learn what you can do to end your allergies - its not a good pick. ... Read more

Divided into three sections-- snacks, main dishes, and treats--this book also provides information about how to find what you need in a regular grocery store, instead of requiring a separate trip to the natural foods store.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for people just learning how to cook round allergies!
I like this book for when I have friends over with food allergies. I am GF and am always looking for quick recipes. I like that they have options for replacements in case I have friends with kids over that have allergies. This was not made to be a 5 star cookbook, just a basic no picture grouping of quick easy recipes. Yes a couple suck, but won't all cookbooks have a couple of them?

1-0 out of 5 stars it only got one star because you must click at least one star
Don't buy this book. Here...let me save you the time and money and energy. Take any "kid friendly" recipe you want and make the substitutions as follows:
for egg...use an egg substitute
for milk...use a milk substitute
for wheat...use a wheat substitute
for butter...use margarine
for a nut allergy...don't use nuts
to make it low in sugar...use less sugar
to make it gluten free...don't use gluten
There. I just saved you $15. These are by far the most absurd recipes and substitution I have ever seen in my life. Oh and the taste...YUK...even without the substitutions.
There is nothing that teaches one how to make these substitutions...for example
for egg...use banana, applesauce, pumpkin, baking soda & vinegar, ground flaxseeds & water to name a few.
for milk...there are nut milks, oat milk, hemp milk, rice milk, and soy milk use as a one to one (rice and almond milks tend to be a little more liquidy so you may want to cut back)
for wheat...well...there are quite a few recipes online ranging from quinoa, rice, soy, oat flours...it is trial and error depending on what you need and what you like and what you are using it for...a blend is better then just one.
for butter...most of the time you can use margarine but I prefer flax seed oil some prefer coconut oil
low in sugar...I use fruit purees...some people like using alternative sugars (honey, barley malt) some use apple juice concentrate.
Look at that...less then one page and already more informative then that whole book.
seriously...don't buy this book.

Probably a good cookbook if you need to be wheat or gluten free, but otherwise, forget it.The cover is very misleading as almost all recipes include dairy or eggs or both, and the suggested substitute for any cheese is a soy imitation.I think if they just removed the list of the supposedly allergy-free items from the cover, then one wouldn't be so surprised and disappointed, as many allergy cookbooks are not for all allergies.

1-0 out of 5 stars misleading - not allergen-free
I checked this book out from the library before purchasing and was very glad that I did not waste my money. For a similar value, just pick up any standard cookbook and omit your allergens when cooking. (Allergic to gluten? Simply use GF flour. Allergic to eggs? Leave them out. Allergic to dairy? Use soy. Allergic to soy? Well, you're on your own with that one. Hmmm... maybe just... leave that out too?)

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money. . .these recipes are poor quality!
I bought this book when my son was first diagnosed with an egg and nut allergy.First of all, if your child has these allergies and no others, don't even bother because the substitutions are just like "omit nuts" or "use ener-g egg replacer".Really?That's not too creative, folks.I don't need a special cookbook for that.And am I really going to make a quiche with egg replacer?These recipes are more geared toward eliminating gluten, and the other allergies are more of an afterthought.

The other thing I have noticed about these recipes is that the instructions are poorly written.Unless you are an experienced cook/ baker and can figure out things like you need to mix the dry ingredients separately or that granola bars without salt are going to taste disgusting, you are going to end up with some flops.I can say that every recipe of the 5 or 6 I have made from this book has left me disappointed, and many of the recipes I can just look at and tell they are not going to be good.Where was the editor and the test kitchen on these- seriously!How can one write a cookbook without testing the recipes extensively- Betty Crocker would be ashamed.You will be much better off with some recipes from the blogosphere, such as food allergy mama and the gluten free goddess. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves this book!
My daughter is 3 1/2, loves princesses, and is allergic to peanuts and almonds.She LOVES this books, and wants me to read it over and over and over!

Some of it is a little silly, like how the main charactor didn't know her best friend was allergic (didn't she have a peanut-free lunch table?)...and how she asked for the cake to be made with out peanuts, in a bakery that uses peanuts, without worries about cross-contamination.BUT, that might be too complex for kids to understand, so I think this is a great book for preschoolers, and am buying an extra copy for my daughter's class.

5-0 out of 5 stars princess and the peanut allergy
Love the book-my son even likes it--story well written-lets children know there are options and friends can celebrate together even when there are severe food allergies!!

5-0 out of 5 stars My 3 year old loved it!
Came quickly and was in perfect condition.We recently found out my 3 year old princess has a peanut allergy.We wanted to find a book she could relate to.This book was perfect!Princesses, cake, and in the end... no peanuts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
The Princess and the Peanut Allergy is an excellent resource for any child with a peanut allergy. My daughter is 2 1/2 years old and loves the book. She is starting now to understand her allergy so much better. It is a great educational tool.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book for kids with food restrictions!
This book addresses food allergies from the viewpoint of a child not personally dealing with them.Regina is planning a birthday party, and becomes very upset that her best friend won't be able to come because of a food allergy.(Her friend tearfully tells her dad she wishes she could keep her allergy secret, and her dad is supportive that she did the right thing.)The book ends with the realization that the important thing is to keep everyone safe and have fun.

While not all kids can have such a perfect ending to food allergy outings, kids will see their own fears and frustrations addressed and dealt with by other kids their age.They also will see a satisfactory ending without any hard lessons involving epi pens and ambulances.

A great book to share with classmates, or in a group with a food allergic individual.(Or to use in any lesson plan dealing with tolerance and compromise) ... Read more

Amazon.com Review
Few things are scarier than witnessing a child having an allergic reaction,whether it manifests itself as wheezing or life-threatening anaphylaxis.Parents will do anything to avoid having their child suffer such a reactionagain, but treading the line between being prepared and being paranoid can be tricky.The Parent's Guide to Food Allergies was written by a team of people who shared theirexpertise from the medical lab and the kitchen; two M.D.s and one Ph.D.collaborated with author Marianne Barber, the mother of afood-allergic son, who writes with a personal slant so often absent frommedical guides. Barber understands the daily coping skills that are needed when living with an allergic child, from banning particular foods entirely to reading ingredient labels.

Especially common allergens like peanuts, wheat, and eggs merit separatechapters, while other foods are treated more generally. Each of thefood-specific chapters includes a list of ways that the ingredients can"hide" in processed foods. Once you learn that milk also goes byhydrolysate, and that one of wheat's many aliases is seitan, you'll realizethe importance of careful reading. The chapter titled "Hidden Allergens" expands on thistheme, and while Barber does an excellent job of detailing the possible hidingplaces, she says, "careful labeling is well and good, but it doesn'teliminate the need for a judgment call on your part." There's also a chapter on anaphylaxis, in which the realities of living with Epi-pens and liquidantihistamines are faced in a kind, straightforward manner. A specialrecipe section includes enjoyable treats for the whole family that are baked with wheat-free flour, milk-free margarine, and applesauceinstead of eggs. (The spice cake with fresh fruit is a delicious treat.)

At once gentle and authoritative, Barber's book is an excellent guidethrough the maze of childhood allergies. --Jill Lightner ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Better resources are available.
I wasn't very happy with this book.I found a few helpful pointers, but overall the views were sort of extreme, and some of the advice was very contrary to what physicians have told us.If anybody I knew was reading this, I'd suggest they take it with a grain of salt and get several other viewpoints as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book really helped!
When I found out my 9 month old son had severe food allergies, I was overwhelmed.The doctor said he couldn't eat wheat, egg, peanuts, milk, and several other foods, but never gave me practical advice on how to cope with this new lifestyle.This book really helped us figure out how to start introducing new foods, and how to shop for acceptable foods in the grocery store.The best feature is that there is a separate chapter on all the common food allergies.Each chapter starts with a list of all items you could see on a food label that would be dangerous if you have that allergy.For example, the chapter on milk lists things like casein, ghee, hydrolysates as well as about two dozen other things milk-allergic people should avoid.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book, My allergy bible
This was the first book I bought after learning my son had severe food allergies.This book was and still is a godsend!It is very well written with just enough detail but easy to read/understand.It is a wealth of information, with practical tips, valuable facts, and written with a good sense of humor ... from one Mom to another.Thank you so much for helping me (and our whole family) get a handle on this huge learning curve.It helped me to mentally and emotionally educate and prepare myself, re-organize my pantry and shopping, and learn to live w/ this major adjustment and philosophy in cooking, shopping, reading, and eating.I just wish she would write a follow-up book ... and with more recipes.I need help with the cooking part ... It's so hard to bake without eggs.Thank you!!

3-0 out of 5 stars A good place to start...
This is the first book I read when my son was diagnosed with multiple food allergies.It's a good starting point, but not the best book on the market.The author's child has a severe peanut allergy so the tips given are mainly for a severe peanut allergy.For those of us who have severe allergies and are avoiding the top 8 allergens plus additional foods - the help this book offers is limited.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great information!
This book has been so helpful!It gives lots of great information about food, but also eatting out, the pharmacy, and other places that you might not think about food allergies being a problem!I have refered to this book many times for help! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars NAET worked for our family
Our son was diagnosed as being mildly austitic on Dec 3rd 2009.He hand flapped,rocked, spun in a chair and had about 30 words, no phrases.He was two at the time.We started NAET in mid-December and traditional therapies in January.He cleared gluten, wheat, yeast, just to name a few.These were the biggest allergens and we saw the most changes in him after he cleared these.
Today, March 6, 2010.My son has lost all of the self stimming behaviors except for handflapping.He speaks in sentences.He no longer needs speech therapy.He will attend regular preschool in the fall.

I believe we owe this all to NAET.His therapists agree there is so much progress it cannot be from just two months of therapy. I share this book with anyone who has interest and tell his story to everyone.
I followed my heart after seeing a news clip about NAET and from day one I believed it would work although I found it hard to wrap my mind around it.

It is not a scam although it might not work for all.I wish all autistic children would have the chance to try this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
This is a great book to read and reference and it makes it easy for patients to understand how allergies can be related to and triggers for autism.

1-0 out of 5 stars People, Stop and Think!
There are at present many organizations working hard and spending millions to find a cure for autism. The Autism Research Institute, Autism Speaks and Autism One are three that come to mind. In their eagerness and determination to find a cure, these organizations, which have made significant strides, are definitely open to all forms of alternative medicine--provided they work.

This NAET book first came out TEN YEARS AGO! If NAET really works, you can be sure these organizations would be touting it, and the doctors associated with these organizations (many of whom are naturopaths, homeopaths, chiropractors, orthomolecular doctors, as well as conventional allopaths) would have learned and would be practicing NAET by now. They haven't because if NAET ever works, it works on the same principle as voodoo--that is psycho-somatic healing. The patient feels better because he or she is made to think he well get better--nothing more.

There is nothing scientific about NAET. If it worked, it would be the focal point of conferences sponsored by DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!), Autism One and others. At the very least don't waste your money on it. It's simple enough that you can certainly just try it yourself at home.

4-0 out of 5 stars great jump start for getting rid of allergies
my 5 year old son has autism and multiple allergies which were not detected by the mainstream allergy tests done at the pediatricians.i got this book and looked it up on the naet website.we were lucky enough to get involved in the naet clinical trial for autism/allergies.according to the muscle response testing they do, he was actually allergic to almost 100 environmental factors like vitamin c and perfume.he was even allergic to the minerals in water.no wonder we could never lock down his allergy source!anyway, this may sound like mumbo jumbo to you, but it has worked wonders for our son.the only reason i do not give the book 5 stars is because it is a bit vague which forces you to find the practitioner and you are not able to do any of it yourself until they teach you.

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolute False
This is absolute false. I spent thousands of dollars on this treatment with no change/improvement at all. Feel free to contact me.

People like these are victimizing us parents of autistic kids. ... Read more
