Theron Randolph was primary in going before Congress and getting labels on food, and he defined Chemical Sensitivity as a diagnosis. This book, and the page on the Manic-Depressive cycle, have a place in history as watershed events. We all benefit from his courage and intelligence. In decades of meticulous testing of patients at his clinic in Chicago, eliminating allergens and adding them back one at a time, Dr. Randolph demonstrated and documented the basis of the Manic-Depressive cycle. As a woman Physicist, I found his book intriguing in the careful, methodical approach to physical and mental illness, and surprised that a person's mood changes could be triggered by environmental factors. I tried rotating my foods and adding them back one at a time. I found that wheat and corn gave me arthritis (!), and that my mind would be less clear with certain foods and chemicals. The Rotation Diet can certainly be unbalanced if not managed properly, and people can become allergic cripples by avoiding the modern world; so the insights must be balanced with common sense. My quality and enjoyment of life is much better as a result of reading this book. I have gone beyond Randolph's neutralizing injections, to use Devi Nambudripad's pressure point clearing for allergies, as a permanent treatment. This eliminates the need for injections. However, I continually monitor the well-being of my students, my family and myself using the insights I gained reading this book.

My daughter was at Dr. Randolph's clinic in the early 1980's. I was extremely pleased at the treatment she received. She came home after a month with a formaldehyde antidote which was the best treatment she has ever received, and she has seen many doctors and has volumes of medical history. She is extremely ill with chronic fatigue. If I could only find the antidote again, it would be a blessing!! While taking it, was the only time in her life that she only required eight hours of sleep and her life was normal. Dr. Randolph knew exactly where he was going, but like any scientist, finding the correct road to travel on is a search!!

My father who has Multiple Sclerosis, a disease well known for its adverse sensitivity to the chemical environment found in all homes today and who himself is a physician from the Univ. of Michigan, class of 1966, went and was treated in Randolph's Henrotin Hospital, in the late 70's. When he came home nearly a month later, I saw him stand on his toes and ride a bike, things I had never seen him do before, or since. Randolph's theories were proven to me that day; moreover, reviewer number one, I challenge you to show where Randolph recommends this formeldyhyde treatment you received...yes there are quacks out there, but just because some nut calls himself a clinical ecologist and injects you with formeldyhyde does not mean that person is pursuing a treatment recommended by Randolph. Also, it is not so unusual for status quo to resist change, and Randoph's theories want to turn the medical profession on its ear! It's no wonder all his theories are not approved by the establishment. He did have his own hopital in Chicago and goverment funds a plenty. And one more thing, reviewer number one, you speak of Randolphs' theories as though they were one in number. He had many theories, quite a few of which have been proven in double blind experiments, though, certainly, not all of them are. It's a great book!

covers most of the health-related problems of today with case studies of real people who had been through the experience; chapters and tables that rates how much the person can be affected to an addiction with physical and mental symptoms; there is a thorough questionnaire which you can copy and complete; and an appendix list of foods belonging to which food family you can look back on; as a layperson, i understand the contents very well - no complex medical terms used

As a result of reading this book I went to a clinical ecoligist in New York City. He was affiliated with a major upper east side hopital so I felt he should be legitimate. He gave me dilutions of chemicals including formaldehyde both by intradermal injection and sublingualy. After 3 month of this treatment my I could no longer work my blood test doubled in the allergic indicater Ige ( the highest any allergist I seen has ever encounter). I found out from the Office of professional medical conduct and the FDA that clinical ecology is quackery. In forty years these guys have been unable to show one double blind study proving the effacy of their treatment. The quack who teated me is currently under investigation. Before you try any of this nonsense I strongly urg you to check with the FDA or your local Health Department.
