dah dah dah DIT dah dah...
dah dah dah dah dah dah dah DIT dah DAH...
Can you hear the music in your head? Can you see the red carpet? Can you picture the Food Allergy Luminaries getting out of their limos, walking down the red carpet to receive their little gold statuettes?

Yeah, me neither.

Just because food allergies don't get a lot of respect as a disease though is no reason for us not to award our stand-outs their own award! to present our nominees is...the FOOD ALLERGY BITCH! (Me.)

  • NAET! This amazing cure involves mysterious energy blockages! It's complicated and expensive! Best of all, it has shillers all over the internet recruiting people to the fold!
  • IgG Level Testing! They look like doctors! They feel like doctors! They test like doctors! If you love doctors and want a reason to needlessly limit foods in your/your child's diet, this is your kind of test!


When my sister told me this weekend that she had seen a naturopath and that the woman had asked her to hold a container of powdered milk in her hand and thereby diagnosed a milk allergy...the idea for the Bitchies was born.

The concept? Organ dysfunction is tied to muscle weakness. My favorite line from Quackwatch? "A few even perform "surrogate testing" in which the arm strength of a parent is tested to determine problems in a child held by the parent."

If you want to throw your money down the drain, you now have the best way to do it!

Let's move on. The next category is a competitive one.

  • The two moms at the Hamilton School (Glen Rock), New Jersey, who punched it out over food allergies

    "According to several parents and one district source, a recent argument between two Hamilton School parents, one dealing with an allergy situation, reportedly became physical, though no details were provided and no serious injuries were indicated."    
  • Curious (and compassionate!) Christian blogger

    "The interview with the father [of a child with food allergies] was the tip of the iceberg for me.  Watching him in his car, because he was to fat and lazy to get out of it and stand up, almost in tears because his daughter could not go to sleepovers was my decision point."


"I don't think my child should have to rinse her mouth out three times a day. Nine times out of 10, peanut butter is not coming out of her mouth," said Carrie. 

"If I had a daughter who had a problem, I would not ask everyone else to change their lives to fit my life," said Chris, whose wife was part of the protests. 

(There were also rumors that at least one parent in this school threatened to put peanut oil on their children's backpack.)

Teaching your kid compassion by putting a hate sign in their hand and asking them to picket against their classmate...that takes the award!

 We have just one more award for today.


  • Sarah Palin! Get the food out of schools? Heck, no! 

    "I had to shake it up a little bit because I heard there is a debate going on in Pennsylvania over whether most schools condemn sweets, cakes, cookies, that type of thing," Palin said. "I brought dozens and dozens of cookies to these students." 
  • Joel Stein! You're still a wienie, Joel. (If you didn't read his first article calling food allergy parents nuts, here you go.) I had hoped you had learned a little more compassion after your son was diagnosed with a nut allergy. But no...still gotta differentiate yourself from the rest of us crazies:

    "We're not banning nuts from our house, and we aren't going to send Laszlo to a nut-free school." 

    We'll look forward to seeing how your child does in a preschool filled with nut products and baby slobber.


 "For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It's not about weight it's about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway." 

Thatagirl, Miley. Take all those impressionable teens and teach them that they can say they're allergic to any food they consider crappppp...and people will get off your back.

Did you diagnose your "allergies" with NAET? IgG? Maybe you held a baguette in your hand and measured your muscle strength?

Do you have someone who you think deserves a Bitchie? Let me know!

The Food Allergy Herbal Formula-2 (FAHF-2) Laundry List

So in all the time I've been writing about our experience with FAHF-2, I have never done a comprehensive post with all the links/info I've found over the years. Consider the situation rectified! I'll add to this as I find new sources. If you have good ones, please feel free to add them to the comments as well.

Liberal, Overbearing, New Age, Alternative Medicine Food Allergy Moms

My mom called the other night.

"I talked to your cousin Donna last night. I told her she should call you. She's into a lot of the same stuff you're into."

"Um...what stuff would that be, Mom?"

"You know...all that stuff about the bees and GMOs and vaccines, honey. I told her you knew a lot about it and would be happy to talk with her."

YIKES! Since when did having a kid with food allergies automatically qualify me for the willing-to-accept-every-random-theory club?

As you guys know, I do a lot of reading and I have come to think there may be something to some of the alternative theories out there, particularly around pesticides and antibiotics killing off symbiotic gut bacteria. But I've also spent 25 years of my career firmly submerged in Western medicine and my mother knows this. So what the heck happened here?

A week later, I wondered it all over again as I read this article on Slate. It's apparently debunking an Elle magazine story that link…
