Reading food labels carefully helps to avoid your food allergens. In addition, cooking your own food is another good rule to ensure your food does not make you sick anymore. This may not sound difficult to those who cook a lot; but for those who only cook occasionally, this could be a problem hindering the road to an allergen-free life. We hope the following books help!
Dr. Sophie Leung
Pediatrician, Doctor of Medicine
Dr. Leung has been very committed in research on children’s growth and nutrition. Dr. Leung, moving her arena from her clinic to the kitchen, tries to use food as our drug, putting the Chinese traditional thinking of medicinal food into practice. The book points out that, by having a healthy diet, illnesses from eczema to chronic diseases like diabetes and cancers, can be under our control. Dr. Leung uses the concept of delayed food allergies with the results of latest scientific research on healthy eating to point out the downsides of eating cultures nowadays and to provide recommendations to make a change.
