    Ask the Allergy Coach Q14: Still getting stomach aches even after doing an elimination diet. Is this normal?

    Ask the Allergy Coach Q14: Still getting stomach aches even after doing an elimination diet. Is this normal?

    Q: When you do an elimination diet is there a "delay" in your stomach getting better? It took me over a month off the foods for my joint pain to subside, but I am still getting stomach aches nearly every day, usually right after I eat. But it doesn't seem to matter much what I eat that I can tell, it happens after every meal of a reasonable size. I've been totally free of intolerant foods since early September...does it just take a while for the stomach to heal or am I missing something?

    Q: My son is allergic to all nuts, sesame and egg. We don’t eat “may contains” and we don’t have his allergens in the house. Is it wrong that I really miss eating eggs and nuts but I feel guilty whenever I do? Even if he is not around?

    EAS 078: When Your Allergy Kids are All Grownup…What Sarah Chapman is Doing Next (Allergy Matters Conference)

    EAS 078: When Your Allergy Kids are All Grownup…What Sarah Chapman is Doing Next (Allergy Matters Conference)

    It’s not very often I get to talk to allergy Mum’s who are coming to the end of their journey. This week I am excited to introduce you to Sarah Chapman blogger and founder of The Allergy Matters Conference (inaugural year October 19th, 2018!!). 



    Sarah walks me through her journey raising 2 allergy kids, one who has had their allergies since a baby and her daughter who developed allergies as a teenager. She has managed allergies including nuts, dairy, soya and Oral Allergy Syndrome. 



    We talk about the road of discovery, diagnosis, raising the kids, eating out, being teenagers and now how they are managing their allergies on their own. 



    Sarah talks about her experiences in hindsight, how to manage the anxiety, the difference between children being diagnosed in the 1990s and children being diagnosed now. 



    We then go on to talk about the Allergy Matters Conference that Sarah is organising taking place in Runcorn, UK on October 19th 2018. There are a number of speakers including healthcare professionals and allergy organisations who will be there and we get a sneak peak at who will be there!

Practical Tips For Thriving With Food Allergies

A wealth of practical tips & personal experiences on navigating social situations, school/university, dating, travel. Nina’s interviews with a variety of adults & children living with food allergies show how people are owning their food allergies & thriving. I am inspired by each podcast! Nina is very positive & informative. She is thriving with food allergies herself - she has become a business owner & cookbook author because of her food allergies. Highly recommend this podcast.

Awesome podcast!

I absolutely love this podcast. Since being diagnosed with a shellfish allergy and nut sensitivity as an adult, I've been anxious trying to navigate through this new journey. I like how the guests are from different countries and talk about food allergies and sensitivities I wasn't aware of. If you or someone you love has allergies, I would recommend this podcast.
