I’m delighted to announce the release of my new book, Living with Food Allergies, published by B Jain Publishers, in India.
It’s a practical and informative guide to managing and coping with food allergies – as either a sufferer or as a parent – and is aimed at the Indian, Asian and African markets, where food allergies are an emerging problem.
Here is some blurb:
Food allergies are on the rise. In the last ten to fifteen years, there has been approximately a five fold increase in adverse reactions to foods such as nuts, fish, cereals, milk, eggs and – increasingly – raw fruits and vegetables. Estimates suggest up to 3% of adults and up to 6% of children now have food allergies.
Living with Food Allergies aims to support people with food allergies and parents of children with food allergies, equipping them to cope with everything from the day-to-day practicalities of dealing with the condition, to the longer-term implications of allergic illness triggered by food.
Topics covered include:
• What food allergies are and why they occur
• Reaction management and medication
• Food safety, diet and nutrition
• Practical issues – home life, employment, education and travel
• Coping emotionally and psychologically
• Allergy prevention and long-term health
• Food allergies in infants and children
• Tests, diagnoses and treatments
• Non-allergic food intolerances and coeliac disease
There is also a comprehensive resource section, filled with useful websites, support organisations, producers, allergy bodies and much more. Food allergy can cause great misery, but the good news is that informed and careful self-management can keep you or your child in optimal mental and physical shape.
‘Great practical advice which shows real understanding, especially of the emotional aspects of coping with allergies, which are often overlooked. If you have an allergy, or know someone who has, Living with Food Allergies should be your bible.’
Faye Rowe, Editor, Allergy Magazine
‘… offers the reader a chance to finally get to grips with food allergies, from minor symptoms to full blown reactions… Plenty of practical advice, emotional support and nutritional advice… this is an invaluable read for anyone.’
Natural Products Magazine
‘A very informative and well researched work, I would recommend it as a must read for anyone who has a child with a food allergy’
