"A life-changing, research-based program that will end food allergies in children and adults forever. The problem of food allergy is exploding around us. But this book offers the first glimpse of hope with a powerful message: You can work with your family and your doctor to eliminate your food allergy forever. The trailblazing research of Stanford University's Dr. Kari Nadeau reveals that food allergy is not a life sentence, because the immune system can be retrained. Food allergies -- from mild hives to life-threatening airway constriction -- can be disrupted, slowed, and stopped. The key is a strategy called immunotherapy (IT) -- the controlled, gradual reintroduction of an allergen into the body. With innovations that include state-of-the-art therapies targeting specific components of the immune system, Dr. Nadeau and her team have increased the speed and effectiveness of this treatment to a matter of months"-- Provided by publisher.
