Allergies—Be Part of the Solution

Fifty years ago, one person in thirty had allergies; today it’s one in three. One billion people
worldwide have asthma, hay fever, food allergies, or other allergic diseases. Why are so many of us suffering? The authors of the new book The Allergy SolutionLeo Galland, M.D., a world-renowned pioneer in integrated medicine, and his son Jonathan Galland, J.D., a health educator and environmental expert—offer answers in this in-depth discussion of the allergy epidemic and what it will take to heal it. Drawing on a vast body of research, the Gallands reveal allergies as the hidden cause of conditions from chronic pain to unexplained weight gain to depression and anxiety. Then they explain how allergy stems from an imbalance in the immune system—caused largely by exposure to toxins in the environment around us and within us—and how we can shift from suppressing symptoms with drugs to reversing allergies for good.
