Why Food Allergies Are Like Volcanoes

I received a compliment last week when a customer mentioned that they appreciated that I tried to focus on the positive food aspects of food allergy in my blogs, tweets and posts because they were tired of hearing the negative so often.  Yippee, a gal after my own heart! It’s not that I don’t acknowledge the down sides of being a food allergy family.  It’s a fact I’m reminded of every day simply by living the life that is our “normal”.  Everything

Is Your Emergency Kit Prepared?

Typhoon Haiyan has dominated the news over the last 2 weeks and rightly so.  With thousands of people killed, millions displaced and remote communities just now seeing their first help after 12 days, it is a natural disaster of enormous proportions.  And while people scramble all over the world to raise funds and send aid, the need is still dire with thousands more at risk as they go without food, water and sanitation. Unfortunately, it takes events such as this

Are You Waiting to Administer Epinephrine During Anaphylaxis?

A new study by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation has shown that anaphylaxis (life threatening allergic reaction) is more common than previously thought.  Rates thought to be about 1 in 50 (1.6%) Americans could be closer to 1 in 20 (5.1%). What has also come to light in this study is that the vast majority of those experiencing anaphylaxis were unprepared for proper treatment with only 11% of reactions getting epinephrine for treatment.  Given that immediate epinephrine is the treatment standard,

Could You Have Oral Allergy Syndrome?

I’ve been struck recently by how many people have mentioned being allergic to a plethora of raw fruits and vegetables.  My ears perk up when I hear that people mention that it’s only a problem with raw foods and often mention apple skins.
