Synopsis:An epidemic of allergies is spreading around the world. One billion people now suffer from allergic diseases such as asthma, hay fever, eczema, and food allergies. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. In this groundbreaking book, award-winning doctor Leo Galland, M.D., reveals the shocking rise of hidden allergies that lead to unexplained weight gain, anxiety, fatigue, ADHD, depression, and much more. Astonishing new research shows how each of these is linked to the immune imbalance that is at the root of allergy.
The allergy solution takes an in-depth look at how we can balance immunity through nutrition and lifestyle to reverse allergies without drugs, then lays out an easy nutritional program, starting with a 3-Day Power Wash designed to “clear the tracks.” Do you suffer from asthma, eczema, or sinusitis? Are you sick of pain, brain fog, weight gain, anxiety, or depression, or wondering what is behind your mysterious symptoms? Let Dr. Galland's clinical experience and unique insights into cutting-edge science guide you back to health.
Review:As a sufferer of allergies both food and nature this book was an eye opener, particularly the part about the sulfite allergy. I have a severe sulfite allergy and to read that others have this and that it contributes to asthma (which I have) and other ailments really gave me pause. There are a vitamin and mineral mentioned in the book that help alleviate sulfites in the body and I'm going to be talking to my doctor about them immediately. I hate popping pills and would much rather turn to diet, vitamins and minerals to help with my symptoms. The pharmaceutical companies spend a lot of money trying to duplicate what is already in nature and charging an arm and a leg for it. I believe there is a time and a place for western medicine but too many of us are relying on it and just getting sicker.
While Dr. Gallands experiences, case studies and methods may not resinate with everyone, those who are at the end of their rope or not enamored with western medicine may want to run out and pick this up, it might not only be an eye opener but also a life saver.
