To some, food allergies seem like fabricated cries for attention. For others, they pose a dangerous health threat. Food allergies are bound up with so many personal and ideological concerns that it is difficult to determine what is medical and what is myth. This book parses the political, economic, cultural, and genuine health factors of a phenomenon that now dominates our interactions with others and our understanding of ourselves. Surveying the history of food allergy from ancient times to the present, Another Person´s Poison also gives listeners a clear grasp of new medical findings on allergies and what they say about our environment, our immune system, and the nature of the food we consume. For most of the 20th century, food allergies were considered a fad or junk science. While many physicians and clinicians argued that certain foods could cause a range of chronic problems, from asthma and eczema to migraines and hyperactivity, others believed that allergies were psychosomatic. Another Person´s Poison traces the trajectory of this debate and its effect on public-health policy and the production, manufacture, and consumption of food. Are rising allergy rates purely the result of effective lobbying and a booming industry built on self-diagnosis and expensive remedies? Or should physicians become more flexible in their approach to food allergies and more careful in their diagnoses? Exploring the issue from scientific, political, economic, social, and patient-centered perspectives, this book is the first to engage fully with the history of what is now a major modern affliction, illuminating society´s troubled relationship with food, disease, and the creation of medical knowledge. 1.

Over 90 percent of the population suffers from inflammation or an autoimmune disorder. Until now, conventional medicine has said there is no cure. Minor irritations like rashes and runny noses are ignored, while chronic and debilitating diseases like Crohn´s and rheumatoid arthritis are handled with a cocktail of toxic treatments that fail to address their root cause. But it doesn´t have to be this way. In The Autoimmune Solution, Dr. Amy Myers, a renowned leader in functional medicine, offers her medically proven approach to prevent a wide range of inflammatory-related symptoms and diseases, including allergies, obesity, asthma, cardiovascular disease, fibromyalgia, lupus, IBS, chronic headaches, and Hashimoto´s thyroiditis.

If you are looking for new beginning in life, then you should look no further than the ´´Plant Paradox Program” instituted by cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Steven R. Gundry. Dr. Gundry has spent many years in the field treating patients suffering from a wide range of ailments. Many of these ailments were autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis, asthma, and Crohn’s disease. At first, Gundry struggled to treat his patients with conventional methods, but they only seemed to get worse. But then he found a common thread in their suffering - they all partook of diets that consumed a large amount of plant-based lectin.Gundry then had his patients dramatically reduce this lectin intake and was astonished at the results. His patient’s disorders managed to correct themselves, and they also lost a lot of weight in the process. In short, they were healthier and happier than ever before simply by tweaking their diet. The interesting thing about Dr. Gundry’s discovery was that his patients whom he had ´´cured” in this manner were not junk-food junkies, they were individuals who worked out and ate what they believed to be ´´healthy diets” with plenty of veggies.It was then that Dr. Gundry understood the paradox that they faced. He realized that even though vegetables are indeed good for us, if too much of certain kinds of veggies are eaten in certain ways, it can have disastrous consequences. It was then that Grundy devised his plan to walk us through the mine field.If you do not have the time to go through some of the lengthier material in his text, then this book is perfect for you. This summary highlights the most important aspects of Grundy’s ´´Plant Paradox Program´´, allowing you to jump right into the mix. Buy this book today! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Norman Tomchak.

Sleep-related abnormalities occurring as a result of allergic disorders can impact an affected individual´s health and overall well-being in a myriad of ways. This comprehensive book thoroughly covers the management of allergic and sleep disorders, providing a detailed discussion on how these co-occurring, often overlapping conditions can be treated in a personalized and patient-oriented manner.
