First published in 1989, this book has remained the widely acknowledged `gold standard' in the field of food allergy and intolerance. This new 4th edition published in 2008 - the first new edition in 10 years - is completely rewritten and contains an abundance of new material based on recent research. It supplies valuable information that cannot be found on the internet, or can only be found by reading dozens of scientific papers that are difficult for the lay person to make sense of.
This book gives a comprehensive, thorough, unbiased and sensible account of food intolerance that can guide you through all the controversies. It is written in language that anyone can understand, and is carefully designed to help readers follow the various different diagnostic diets. With this book you can work out if you really have food intolerance, and what foods you should be avoiding in order to alleviate your symptoms. At the same time, the book contains sufficient detail and analysis of the evidence to make it useful to doctors, dietitians, allergy nurses, alternative therapists and others who see patients with food sensitivities.

You will find detailed, in-depth coverage of mainstream scientific medicine, of new medical approaches to treatment, and of alternative/complementary medicine. The 4th edition discusses all the available evidence about the many tests and treatments now being sold direct to the public, so you can make up your own mind about whether or not they are useful - information which could save you a great deal of money. The book also describes dozens of different self-help techiques and drug-free treatments that won't cost you anything.

The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance tackles head-on the many myths about food intolerance you'll find on the internet. Unlike much of the `free' information available, the information in this book is accurate, is not biased by any commercial pressures, and is clear and complete. Unlike the information on official medical websites, it tells you about all the valuable research that exists, not just the narrow orthodox view. It covers differences in scientific opinion, and new treatments that are known to work but are not taught in medical schools. Where there are controversies, the authors explain what the evidence shows, put the evidence in context, and give you their considered opinion. Best of all, the book is jargon-free and a pleasure to read.

Review:
"should be compulsory reading for GPs and medical students" -- New Scientist
From the Back Cover:
Here is welcome news for the millions of people who suffer from allergies--and for the many more whose ailments have a hidden allergic cause. Recent medical discoveries reveal that a number of common illnesses may be the result of adverse reactions to food. Many people suffer for years from maladies as diverse as migraines, stomach ulcers, diarrhea, nausea, constipation, water retention, aching joints, and eczema; others have more serious ailments, such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, depression, and Crohn's disease. Medical researchers have now discovered a link between these illnesses and certain foods--often very common foods--such as milk, rye, citrus fruits, eggs, and wheat. The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance is a concise guide to identification, prevention, and treatment of allergy-based ailments. In addition to classic food sensitivities, the book covers sensitivity to cosmetics, perfumes, pesticides, plastics, tap water, food additives, and workplace items. The book concludes with a step-by-step account of how to follow the elimination diet, the only valid diagnostic test for food intolerance. The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance is a practical, positive, and supportive guide for the layperson.
