Treating Food Allergies with Modern Medicine by Sanjeev Jain, MD, Ph.D., as the name suggests, explores food allergies, which is a growing concern, becoming an increasingly fatal epidemic. I remember years ago being surprised by a friend’s revelation concerning her peanut allergy. She didn’t show allergic signs until she was an adult and then, on a flight overseas at 30,000 feet in the air, the stewardess was handing out packages of peanuts for a snack. As people opened their packages, this friend reacted to the smell and went into anaphylactic shock. Fortunately, there was a doctor on board and this friend started avoiding peanuts in every aspect of her life. But what if there were another way to treat food allergies? What if there was a medical treatment that would gradually lessen the effect certain allergens have on people? Studies have been evolving over the years and the research is looking favorable, but it is still a quagmire of medical complexity.
Sanjeev Jain’s book, Treating Food Allergies with Modern Medicine, is an insightful and informative guide to help patients and their loved ones deal with allergy afflictions by treating them and hopefully eradicating them. Written in collaboration with Elizabeth A. Muller and Elizabeth Hawkins, Ph.D., MPH, the authors have shared their stories, experiences, and research on this new epidemic. Interspersed with engaging stories of real-life experiences, the book is well laid out with comprehensive advice and practical knowledge of food allergies and their various treatment methods. The book is well sourced and detailed, but without the technical jargon that complicates and confuses. In other words, the authors write in a language everyone can appreciate, follow and understand. This is definitely a valuable resource for anyone suffering from food allergies or helping care for those with food allergies.
