Food Intolerance?
Food Sensitivity?
Food Reactions?

Could food be making you ill? How can you tell? Are you troubled by: Dairy? Wheat? Gluten? Nuts? Soy? Additives? Dr Ford's 30 years experience helps you get to grips with food allergy.
Unfortunately, many doctors have little knowledge of food reactions. Often, people with unexplained symptoms are told "there's nothing wrong with you." Food allergy symptoms can be diagnosed and treated. Why wait?

For example, Katrina writes on facebook:
“I took my eldest boy (now 23 mths) to the hospital when he had problems when 4 wks old: he was failing-to-thrive (not growing) and had feeding problems. But the pediatricians at the hospital didn't believe in allergies. Two weeks later we went to see Dr Ford. It turns out that Tomasz has multiple food allergies - no wonder he screamed when feeding and wasn't putting on weight!”

Why I Can Never Eat Onions Or Garlic Again

Wikimedia Commons For the ancient Egyptians, eating an onion was like biting into a piece of eternity, so enamored were they of the vegetable's spherical shape and concentric circles, supposedly representative of unending time. For me, the experience of biting an onion is slightly less transcendent. I have an intolerance that renders me unable to eat allium plants—the family of food that includes onions, garlic, spring onions, leeks, chives, and scallions—without severe gastrointestinal problems. Though no good data exists on the number of people with this peculiar problem, I’ve come to learn

Gluten-Free Diets Are Not Actually Linked to Diabetes

Unsplash A lovely bread bowl that would be off limits to you if you didn't eat gluten. In the pantheon of fad diets, there is perhaps none more hated on than gluten-free. And despite how annoying fad dieters are (if I hear one more person order a salad because they’re ‘gluten-free’ and then ask for croutons…), it’s not unreasonable to want to avoid foods that might possibly be bad for you. But is gluten actually bad for people who don’t have a problem with it? There’s no real evidence that avoiding gluten leads to tangible health benefits, assuming that you don’t have celiac disease or non-cel

Is the World Making You Sick?: The chemicals in our everyday lives are, argues immunologist Claudia Miller.

In 1962, physicist and historian Thomas Kuhn proposed that science makes progress not just through the gradual accumulation and analysis of knowledge, but also through periodic revolutions in perspective. Anomalies and incongruities that may have been initially ignored drive a field into crisis, he argued, and eventually force a new scientific framework. Copernicus, Darwin, Newton, Galileo, Pasteur—all have spearheaded what Kuhn has called a “paradigm shift.” Thomas Kuhn is Claudia Miller’s hero. An immunologist and environmental health expert at the University of Texas School of Medicine in S
