Allergies (Natural Way Series)

by Moira Crawford


In less than 120 pages, The Natural Way to Allergies by Moira Crawford manages to introduce nearly every allergy and possible method of treatment. Short quizzes assist the newly allergic reader in performing a preliminary self-diagnosis. Concise definitions help distinguish between an allergy and an intolerance, especially when it comes to food. Despite its title, the book features an entire chapter on conventional medicine that explains the advantages and shortcomings of each treatment. It follows this with comparisons to alternative, holistic therapies, breaking them down into three categories: body, mind, and diet. The final chapter assists in selecting a qualified natural practitioner, and useful appendixes point you toward sources for more in-depth study. This is a solid introductory overview of allergies.
