The time has come for allergy sufferers to wake up, smell the
roses, and start curing themselves. If this sounds at all unsympathetic to
those who are true victims of allergy's many symptoms, I apologize. But I
won't apologize for introducing you to a revolutionary look at allergies in
the form of this inspired new book by Carolee Bateson-Koch.

Allergies: Disease in Disguise doesn't quite fly in the face of accepted
medical dogma surrounding allergies, but it almost does. Bateson-Koch draws
from years of clinical practice and proven research studies to put forth a
new set of theories and complementary solutions to an increasingly common
condition. To follow her program requires NOT that you eliminate pets, keep
food journals, and alter your diet for the rest of your life. It does
however, require an understanding of what the author calls "the secret" of
food allergy.

This "secret," and, indeed, the program's success, relies on the premise
that, when property digested, food is rendered non-allergic. As Bateson-
Koch explains it, all food (except fats) enters the bloodstream and, when
properly digested, is recognized as a familiar nutritive particle. From this
point of acceptance, the body continues to deal with the food particle in a
"healthy" manner. Therefore, it follows that incompletely digested particles
are recognized as "foreign" and can provoke allergic reactions. Once we
accept that the key to stopping allergy symptoms lies in acquiring a new
respect for digestion and how the body deals with our food intake, we'rewell
on the way to eliminating allergic reactions, permanently.

Bateson-Koch does an exemplary job at teaching how to optimize the digestive
process in order to do away with allergies while also taking into account
those secondary conditions that commonly lead to allergy. Her book is
clearly written in a well-balanced tone that combines just enough scientific
fact with case studies and several more personal sections contributed by
former patients. Patients with many varied symptoms are described, as it is
this mixed bag of symptoms that makes allergies so difficult to diagnose
and, until now, to treat.

The author's program involves seven healing steps, clearly outlined and easy
to follow. Readers will readily gain a new respect for the digestive process
and the critical role of digestive enzymes in healing from allergies. Anyone
who reads Allergies: Disease in Disguise is sure to gain new insight and the
ability to move forward toward eliminating underlying allergic
conditions.
