Allergy shots for Food Allergies

We’ve all heard of allergy shots for environmental allergies and hay fever symptoms, but for food allergies this treatment has not been available.

Doctor William Shrader in Santa Fe NM has developed a successful treatment for food allergy shots using a natural injection compounded by College Pharmacy. He has been treating food allergy related symptoms for several decades now using this treatment.

These shots are given at 2 month intervals for 1-2 years and can successfully retrain the body to digest rather than attack the foods you have been diagnosed as allergic too.

Some people are able to start eating their allergy foods like dairy, gluten, eggs within a couple of treatments!

The cost of the treatment is your copay (or a 30 min office visit) plus $25 for the shot.

Roasted Beet Soup- gluten and dairy free for autumn

SERVES 6 TO 8

Beets are a good source of folate, potassium and iron. They derive their rich jewel-tone color in part from cancer-fighting betacyanin. High in natural sugar and low in calories, beets are particularly delicious when roasted. Serve this soup hot, topped with a dollop of gluten-free plain yogurt or soy yogurt.

3 pounds fresh red beets trimmed, peeled and cut into pieces (wear gloves to avoid staining hands)

1 large onion, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

1 red or yellow bell pepper, chopped

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 cups apple cider

2 cups gluten-free chicken or vegetable stock

1 teaspoon dried tarragon

½ teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Toss beets, onion, carrots and bell pepper in olive oil and spread in a single layer in a large roasting pan. Cook in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until beets and other vegetables are softened.

3. Add apple cider, chicken stock and roasted vegetables to a large stockpot and simmer for 15 minutes. Add tarragon and salt and pepper to taste.

4. Carefully puree soup in small batches in a blender or food processor. Add water or additional stock to thin to desired consistency. Serve hot.

Lecture – October 16th, 2010

Breast feeding, Immunity and the Healthy Gut
October 16th, 2010 10:10 – 11:45 AM

Babies are new to this world and need a gentle introduction to the new foods that they explore.

By taking advantage of the health benefits of breast feeding and monitoring a thoughtful food introduction, you are preparing the child’s immune system for the future and strengthening the overall health of the stomach and intestines as well as other symptoms!

Did you know that chronic tonsillitis and chronic ear aches are usually because of a food reaction? It’s a easy as taking out the food for awhile (rather than taking out the tonsils permanently!! ) Tonsils are like the Lions at the back of the throat waiting to protect you!

Dr Janel will be giving a lecture on the health benefits of breast feeding and careful food introduction to infants at the La Leche League conference in Redmond, WA.
