Food Allergies Made Simple
by Phylis Austin, Calvin Thrash, MD, and Agatha Thrash, MD
Food Allergies Made Simple by Calvin and Agatha Thrash, just
together information from 72 sources into a simple little book. Those with a
wide variety of complaints might benefit from perusing this subject. What sort
of complaints? Acne, anemia, arthritis, asthma, bad breath, Crohn's, diarrhea,
fatigue, headaches, itching, learning problems, and ulcers, to name but a few.
Not that food allergies are always the cause of these problems, but sometimes
they are a contributing factor. And sometimes those who have not found relief in
any other way have found that eliminating the foods they are allergic to has done
the trick. Take for example a 19-year-old girl with epilepsy, unsuccessfully
treated, who ceased having seizures after eliminating beef from her diet (p. 45).
How does one test for food allergies? Chapter 4 deals with that one. Before
shelling out a lot of money for expensive tests, you ought to read it. Some
tests aren't as reliable as might be expected.
So what can be done instead to identify food allergies? Chapter 5 describes
three alternative approaches that don't cost a cent.
Let me tell you how the authors of this book helped Don, a personal friend of
mine, with his food allergies.
He was allergic to acidic fruits, foods he
really enjoyed. From time to time he would indulge anyway, necessitating an
injection to counteract the allergic response that followed.
Dr. Agatha Thrash, M.D., came to town and gave a series of lectures, part
of which dealt with food allergies. She explained how allergens are sort of
cumulative. When a certain threshold is reached, then an allergic response
ensues. The food that puts one over that threshold may seem to be the only
allergen, but if other allergens are removed, then that food no longer causes
Don discovered he did indeed have other allergies. He found that if he
abstained from using milk on his cereal, something he also enjoyed, then he
could eat those delicious fruits without a problem. Alone, those fruits didn't
exceed the threshold. With milk in his diet, they did.
