The End of Food Allergy with Dr. Kari Nadeau

The End of Food Allergy is a landmark book on preventing, diagnosing, and reversing food allergies with key findings from a premier team of trained experts.

The trailblazing research of Dr. Kari Nadeau at Stanford University reveals that food allergy can be a treatable condition, because the immune system can be retrained. Food allergies 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.

Food allergy families will find fascinating information on the causes of food allergies, the science behind different types of food allergy testing and learn details on immunotherapy. The End of Food Allergy is a must-read for anyone interested in the science behind food allergies and the latest research that is changing the future of allergies.

Allergen Component Testing 101

The most powerful and potentially life-changing diagnostic tool in the food allergy community is also the least known: the allergen component test. We partnered with Allergy Insider, an education platform from Thermo Fisher Scientific who conducts the majority of allergy blood testing in the US and is considered the gold standard, to provide the details you need to know so you can understand if component testing is right for you. Spoiler alert: if you manage allergies to peanut, most tree nuts, milk, egg, or soy, we think the answer is a resounding YES!
