More Hidden allergies plus some Great Books!

I was reading some books I had recently purchsed from Amazon and decided maybe I should look into getting a leather couch to help reduce some of the environmental allergens in my home! I started to look up some local furniture companies to check into prices and what did I find? One particular leather sectional had a soy-based batting in it! So, now, what would that mean for someone with a soy-allergy? I am just absolutely amazed at some of the things I would never have thought to look at for antigens that contain them.
While looking for Dr. Feingold’s book to research further into his diet, etc. I found two other books related to Allergies and behaviours. One is written by Dr. Doris Rapp, M.D. and is titled, ” Is This Your Child? Discovering and Treating Unrecognized Allergies in Children and Adults”. Of the things I love about this book are the many descriptions of children and their reactions to various allergens. The mysterious leg pain being related to a dairy allergy is confirmed in her book. Most of my answers I could possibly have found if I had seen this sooner. I think! This book is incredible and even includes pictures of some of the physical characteristics of a child who is experiencing an allergic reaction.
