No more food allergies

If you can get a copy of The New York Times magazine section for March 10-- Do it! There is an article about Kari Nadeau of Stanford University who is desensitizing kids to multiple foods at once. And it's working!
It's not an easy road-- these kids are troopers with in- hospital dosing and every three weeks up dosing. But it's working and their allergies to foods are gone. They'll need to eat these foods daily for a few years-- pieces of these foods at least. But they will not get reactions.
Sounds unbelievable. But true.
Perhaps this treatment protocol will be available to more soon-- and we thank those brave kids and their parents and families for taking this road.
What would your child's life be like without food allergies?
It's huge.
