The End of Food Allergy

The New Science of Reintroduction and Reversal to Take the Fear Out of Food




The first revolutionary, research-based programme for preventing, diagnosing and reversing food allergies.

Everything you think you know about food allergy is about to change. Food allergy is taking over our lives. In the UK, an estimated 2 million of us are living with a diagnosed food allergy and the number is expected to rise, especially among children. Nutritional advice can be confusing and conflicting, often prompting families to remove allergens altogether and causing them to live forever in fear of food children cannot tolerate.

Dr Nadeau’s books turns this notion on its head with one powerful message: you can work with your family and your doctor to take your child from having food allergy to not having food allergy.

Allergies are not meant to last forever – our immune system can be retrained to phase them out. The solution is immunotherapy (IT), which works by gradually reintroducing an allergen into the body. From mid hives to life-threatening airway constriction, allergies can be disrupted, slowed and stopped altogether.

The End of Food Allergy combines these food reintroduction strategies with Dr Nadeau’s cutting-edge research, practice and her trials on over 3,000 children. She will walk you and your family through every aspect of food allergy, giving you the necessary tools to work alongside your health care professional to reverse and better understand food allergies.

Dr Nadeau will also give specific recommendations during pregnancy to help babies avoid developing food allergies, weaning advice and strategies to help parents and children cope with the emotional toll of living with food allergies.

With a clear and supportive plan, this book will give you everything you and your family need to know to break free from any kind of food allergy, and put an end to the fears that come with them.
