Children suffering from peanut allergies or other sensitivities that result in anaphylaxis present serious challenges for their parents. In many cases parents have few alternatives for caring for their allergic children. One example is the need for home schooling to ensure that these highly allergic children avoid exposure to peanuts and other known allergens. Anaphylactic reactions can be life threatening and accidental exposure could result in death.
Dr. Doris Rapp has dedicated her life to identifying and providing simple solutions for behavior problems in kids and specifically targets the affects of allergies, food sensitivities and toxins on children. In the video below, she offers insight into how to help a child who suffers from allergy induced behavior problems.

A study published in the “Pediatrics” the official journal of the American Association of Pediatrics shows that late introduction of solid foods during infancy is directly related to the likelihood a food or inhalant sensitivity develops by age 5. The study involved 994 children with susceptibility to type 1 diabetes for whom information on breastfeeding, age at the introduction of solid foods, and allergen-specific immunoglobulin E levels at 5 years was available (using data from The Finnish Type 1 Diabetes Prediction and Prevention Nutrition Study). The results of the study are reported as follows:

If you add seasonal colds and flu to my allergies and asthma, it adds up to headaches and chronic fatigue, not to mention a constant feeling of stress.
There is a lot of concern today about genetically-modified foods and for good reason – no one really knows how safe they are!
Genetically Modified Organisms have also been known to cause allergic reactions in people who previously did not show sensitivity to the product in question. GMOs offer a unique challenge to a person’s battle against allergies and attempt to find allergy relief. It makes it more difficult to define the true cause of a food allergy if you don’t know what you’re truly eating.
