Have you heard of the macrobiotic diet? Neither had I until I came across it as a part of my training to become a certified health coach with IIN and then ironically was assigned to do a product demo in whole foods on the MACROBARS Organic Variety Pack of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Granola with Coconut, and Cherries and Berries, 1.8 oz- 2.5 oz Bars (Pack of 15) and these bars were created as a snack and meal for people who are on the macrobiotic diet. So exactly is it and how can it help your allergies?

1. It’s a diet based almost exclusively on fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds which small amounts of whole grains such as brown rice, however, gluten and soy are not allowed. Small amounts of chicken and fish are allowed if you feel like you need it, however, it is recommended to be vegan if possible.

2. Another way of viewing it is that is is almost the complete opposite of the raw vegan diet, in fact, the macrobiotic diet when followed strictly does not include any raw food including salads.

3. You cannot eat potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, egg plant and any other nightshade vegetables.

4. Many people have hidden food intolerances and this diet by default eliminates the ones that most people struggle with.

5. The macrobiotic diet is based on fruits and vegetables and doing a cleanse of sorts by eating very clean for a time period can help with a lot of allergies and allergic reactions.

Here is a video that also explains in more details the macrobiotic diet.

Are you looking to finally eliminate your allergies forever? If so, you should take the time to read this book. While I’m not sure that the information in this book will really eliminate allergies forever for everyone and in fact, if you have food intolerances or allergies, then this book will not help you. However, the information in this book is nonetheless really useful.

This book starts out with a summary of the history of allergies, then moves on to talk about extactly what allergies are and how they are caused. There is also a really good summary of the various ways in which you can get contact with allergens.

Then there is a chapter on traditional allergy treatments and how they work following by a brief guide to alternative treatments. I find it interesting that the only treatments mentioned in this chapter are homeopathy, naturopathy, acupuncture and ayurvedic treatments. While I know from personal experience and from the exprience of others that these are all effective treatments, this is not a comprehensive list. The next chapter covers allergy symptom relief. The last chapter answers any of the questions the author gets asked on a regular basis. These are interesting and worth reading.

In short, this book does not really deliever on its claim to eliminate your allergies forever, however it is worth reading and is easy to read and follow.
