Keep Informed

This post is a bit different from my usual allergy-free recipes, but I feel like it's an important one. As a parent of a child with severe food allergies, it's vital for me to stay up to date on the latest food allergy research. Even though we have a very good local pediatric allergist, it's really up to me to be proactive and seek out this information. Fortunately, there are several online resources.

One of the great websites to check out is The Food Allergy Initiative (FAI), which recently merged with The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network. They will soon have a new website located at For now, check out FAI's main page and scroll down to the links under 'Recent News.'

Listed in the recent news, some food allergy treatment options, all currently still in the clinical trial and/or research stages, include oral immunotherapy, TSO Therapy and eating baked milk. The outcomes are looking promising, and I would suggest talking to your allergist about these treatment options and when they might be available.

I did come across two practices who currently perform oral immunotherapy: The NE Food Allergy Treatment Center, and Dallas Allergy Immunology. There are other major food allergy research centers around the country. They include:

The final online resource I'd like to share is Consulting MD, A website offering state-of-the-art medical advice from the world's leading experts, specializing in second opinions and cutting-edge, informational videos. Lucky for us in the food allergy world, their first set of informational videos is on food allergies, specifically practical information about food allergy testing, prevention, management, and new treatment therapies. I have already previewed these videos and have found them to be extremely informative and helpful. They have motivated me to be more proactive in my daughter's health and establish her as a patient at one of the major food allergy research centers.

Consulting MD has graciously offered a 75%-off discount to my readers for these already-affordable videos. Simply go to this link and enter the group code CEvideo before purchasing. But hurry - this offer is only available until the end of February!
