An Oral Allergy Syndrome Cookbook {update}

Launch date coming soon!

Living with Oral Allergy Syndrome: A Gluten and Meat-Free Cookbook for Wheat, Soy, Nut, Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Allergies

by Danielle LeBlanc

If your lips, mouth or tongue have ever tingled after eating fresh fruits or vegetables, if wheat makes you wheeze, if soy makes you sick, or if nuts knock you out, there's a good chance you have oral allergy syndrome, a hay-fever related food allergy.

Oral allergy syndrome, also known as pollen food allergy syndrome, or food pollen allergy, occurs when people react to foods that are related to certain pollens. For example, if you're allergic to birch pollen, you may notice your lips tingle when you eat a fresh apple, peach, or almonds. If you're allergic to grass, ragweed or latex, you might find that kiwis, bananas, or tomatoes give you hives or belly aches.

If any of this applies to you, you'll want to read this book, the most comprehensive resource on oral allergy syndrome to date.

Oral allergy syndrome is the leading cause of food allergies, with 50-90% of people with hay fever suffering from related food allergies.  However, it is little understood and often goes unrecognized, unreported and undiagnosed. Those with it often feel frustrated by the lack of information, and may be confused about what to eat. 

The goal of Living with Oral Allergy Syndrome is to help you live better with food allergies, and to help you take control back over your diet and health.
