I first bought this book in 1998, followed the recommendations & improved my health considerably. More problems have now raised their ugly heads so before having another go I thought I'd buy the new version. It is much improved, has been updated as medical knowledge has expanded & has a more conciliatory attitude to GPs. I have an appointment at the local hospital in April (what 18 weeks waiting limit!) so in the meantime I'm trying the book's regime for dealing with food intolerance, no success yet, I'll let you know how it goes.
Update: Well no luck this time, I went on to stage 2 but no change to the symptoms & I don't fancy stage 3! The NHS are not having much luck helping me either.

'This book is designed to be read by two different types of reader - those who like to read straight through from beginning to end and those who prefer to 'dip in' to topics that interest them.....'
Super easy-to-read reference book with the odd black and white illustration, and case studies throughout:, e.g.:
Richard had suffered from eczema since he was two months old and when he was 8 years old he still needed twice-daily applications of cream to keep the itching under control. Since he did not seem to be growing out of it, his mother asked her GP if she could try changing his diet, to see what effect that had.
She was told to avoid eggs, milk and all milk products as a first step, which she did.
Within a week his eczema had cleared up, and even when the cream was stopped it did not return. When milk was reintroduced into his diet, Richard was fine, but 24 hours after eating egg he began to scratch furiously.
By avoiding eggs he has remained free of eczema.'
Money well spent!
It's packed with a lot of new information structured in such a manner that makes it easy to read and understand. It's the most complete book on this subject I know. I highly recomended it to all food allergy and/or intolerance sufferers.
