Good news about treating peanut allergies

The following article is taken with thanks from http://tinyurl.com/yk9f62w

However, I have to note upfront that homeopathic remedies do exactly this- desensitize- without the danger, and much more quickly and easily. Natra Bio and other companies sell homeopathic allergens, and we homeopaths have been successfully helping people reduce all kinds of allergies for many years.

I am glad to see the medical world is catching on, and learning that minute doses of something will cause desensitization, though!

Here is the article:
“Good news is on the horizon for parents of children with sever peanut allergies. The Addenbrook Hospital in Cambridge, England has already run a small, but successful, program to desensitize allergic children. Now they’re attempting to duplicate their results on a larger scale. “Every time people with a peanut allergy eat something, they’re frightened that it might kill them.” Dr. Andy Clark, who lead the Addenbrooke’s Hospital program says in a press release. “Our motivation was to find a treatment that would chance that and give them the confidence to eat what they like. It’s about quality of life.”

The new, larger study will exactly replicate the earlier program, which fed peanut allergic children daily doses of peanut flour. Starting with minuscule doses, tolerances were built up gradually over six months. By the end of the original study, subjects could tolerate the equivalent of five peanuts. Not a cure, certainly, but a huge step forward for a growing population of people so allergic to peanuts that they can’t even eat food prepared in factories where peanuts are present.

One of Clark’s success stories is nine year old Michael Frost – a severely allergic patient who has found the treatment life altering.

His mother, Kate Frost, says in the press release that: “It’s very hard to describe how much of a difference it’s made – not just in Michael’s life, but for all of use. A peanut allergy affects the whole family. You can’t go out to a restaurant. If your child goes to a birthday party, he takes a packed lunch.”

Michael is going to celebrate his tenth birthday in a Chinese restaurant, a place he wouldn’t have been able to step foot in before the treatment because of the frequent use of peanut oil.

It’s still unclear if the results are permanent, but so far, if Clark’s patients maintain their five peanut a day intake, they seem to maintain enough tolerance to live fairly normal lives.”

Diane grew up in Oregon, and says she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing. Her father gave her a guitar for Christmas when she was 13, and she taught herself folk and country styles, and started to write songs. At 19, believing her first talent was acting, she headed off to England, determined to study acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. But life can take some funny turns. Before she could arrange an interview, she was literally “discovered,” playing her guitar and singing to a small, private, New Year’s Eve party at a London hotel. IMG_0005 2A BBC television producer was there, a screen test followed, and the result was a network primetime series of variety specials! “The Diane Solomon Show” of the late 70s, was a great success, and she quickly became a regular on British TV, with other specials of her own, and numerous guest appearances, including several Royal Gala Specials. She recorded 5 albums, appeared on countless radio shows, TV hosting, and musical theater productions. She headed four major UK Theater concert tours of her own, toured with Glen Campbell on three European tours, and opened for a major Kenny Rogers’ tour in 1991. IMGBut then life took another turn, this time not so fortunate. She was diagnosed with the infamous M.E., or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and for the next three years was too ill to walk across the room unaided. For a total of seven years she struggled with half a life. In the darkest hours songwriting was her saving grace, and the title cut of her new CD, “Good Things Don’t Come Easy” was born of this troubled time. With the help a brilliant German homeopathic system of healing, plus nutrition and herbs, she regained her health. Diane was so impressed with these alternate therapies that she has since gained degrees in both nutrition and homeopathy, achieving a doctorate degree from the British Institute of Homeopathy. She practiced nutrition and homeopathy for fifteen years, using a combination of nutrients, herbs, homeopathic remedies, and diet and lifestyle recommendations. She describes dealing with people’s health issues as a kind of “onion layer” experience. Herbs, nutrients, and lifestyle changes are powerful, yet are in some way addressing the outer layers. They help enormously, but she has found that the major changes in people’s health comes from a deep homeopathic remedy, known as the constitutional remedy. Homeopathy is not an exact science, and thought, attention, focus, intuition, and yes, luck are involved in finding this remedy. When the right deep remedy is chosen, improvements in a client’s well being, both physically and psychologically, can be dramatic, even life-changing! Now focusing on writing, Diane lives in beautiful Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, with her husband, Mark Carey. She writes soft country, folk, and classical ballads, playing both guitar and piano. She has written several non-fiction books fields of nutrition and homeopathy, plus has ghost-written and/or edited seven books for clients, in various fields. She has just finished a middle grade mystery/fantasy novel with her husband Mark, entitled The Ravenstone: The Secret of Ninham Mountain, due for publication Sept 30 2016. Kindle cover final oct 10 2015She has also recently published a book on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, entitled, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: a guide to the homeopathic treatment of CFS/M.E. It was published in November, 2015, and was quickly the top selling book on Amazon in the homeopathic category. Sometimes called a “Renaissance Woman,” she writes, edits, researches, designs and builds gardens, always seeking more knowledge, more understanding, and more creative flow.
