Food intolerance myths and food intolerance facts

Quality Health Books is proud to publish the 4th edition of: The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance by Professor Jonathan Brostoff and Linda Gamlin

The completely updated 2008 edition of this celebrated book: still the most comprehensive, reliable and unbiased source of information on all aspects of food intolerance, food allergy and food sensitivity. It tells you the whole story, and does so in a clear, lively and readable style.

The book includes a great deal of valuable medical data not available on the Internet and tells you the full facts about difficult topics where doctors disagree, such as eczema and diet, food reactions in migraine, IgG testing for IBS, food intolerance in Crohn’s disease, asthma and food sensitivity, elimination diets for breast-feeding mothers, potential coeliac disease and latent coeliac disease.

From a review of The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance in Foods Matter magazine, September 2008:

“It is nearly twenty years since the first edition of this book was published – and, like good wine, it has just grown in depth and complexity over the years. It really does remain the most complete guide to the subject. What is so impressive about Professor Jonathan Brostoff and Linda Gamlin is how they combine an encyclopaedic knowledge of the subject with total accessibility.”

David Reading, co-founder of The Anaphylaxis Campaign, in the campaign magazine, Autumn 2008:

“For the non-medical person, any book on allergy must be easy to read and understand, yet free from popular myth. This book meets both of those requirements. The science is explained clearly in a way that doesn’t overwhelm and there is an abundance of practical information for people who live with food allergy. If you are at risk of anaphylaxis, this book could be a life-saver…. highly recommended.”

From reviews of earlier editions of The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance:

Complementary health practitioner, London :

Five stars are not enough – this book is the gold standard … A great read, a great reference text, a survivors’ kit for many..”

David Boyce, former trustee, National Eczema Society:

“Professor Jonathan Brostoff is a leading expert in the field. The book represents excellent value for anyone wishing to get to grips with this subject in a thoroughly scientific and in-depth manner… The best book on the subject.

Dennis Littrell, Amazon Reviews:

“What makes this book so good is the wealth of information presented, the crystal-clear writing, and the frank expression of the controversy surrounding how foods might cause disease…. There is nothing else quite like it in print that I know of. Certainly nothing on the same level of value to the general reader.”

New Scientist:

“Brostoff and Gamlin’s book should be compulsory reading for GPs and medical students

Reviewers of The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance agree:

“The best book about food allergy and food intolerance.”
