    Lost in Translation Ft. Gemma Mae Strohbach

    At the end of 2018, this specific incident changed her perspective on food allergies forever. She had a chocolate from Poland with no English ingredients on it, and asked her friend to read it. As her friend misread the ingredients, she went into anaphylactic shock while losing trust in the people around her. 

    The incredible, Gemma Mae Strohbach, teaches us what it's like living in South Africa where food allergies are not prioritized, how she didn't eat in restaurants for 1 year after the 2018 incident, or even at her Grandma's house on Christmas, and how her 5-year long boyfriend accommodated to her food allergies. Gemma shows us how she slowly regained her trust for the people around her, while trying to live her life to the fullest. 

    If you would like to know how to date with food allergies, or how to travel to different countries while staying safe: tune in to this week's episode of Less Panic, More Peace.

Incredible

I’m a new allergy mom, and this podcast is a godsend. I have learned and laughed with this podcast. From the episode where her brother thinks he may die because of an allergy testing (Giving a Child a Peanut on Purpose) to awesome stories about the situation where you are kissing someone, and they might have had your allergen to helpful tips - I highly recommend to listen to this podcast.

Thank you for educating people, and helping me through this journey.

Very informational podcast

This podcast is amazing for raising awareness and providing insightful tips/stories from successful and intellectual people who are getting interviewed. Riya Miglani does a great job in asking curious questions so we don’t have to. I highly recommend listening to this podcast as it’s interesting and informational at the same time. I usually don’t write reviews, but for this I needed to. It’s more than just a podcast, it’s a small step in changing the allergy world we live in today.
