“Barbara Allan’s story of how she regained her health is truly inspiring. Every time I read it, I find another bit of information that I can try or pass on to my mother who has severe osteoarthritis. We found the chapters on exercise and diet particularly helpful to us both.”

IMPORTANCE OF IDENTIFYING AND ELIMINATING PROBLEM FOODS
As you are probably already aware, if you have either classical food allergies or food sensitivities (the difference is explained on pages 30-32 of the book, Conquering Arthritis) avoiding hidden allergens is a critical part of getting well and staying well.
These allergens tend to be different for each person. Knowing exactly what your own particular allergens are and exactly where these hidden allergens are found, is a key for stopping arthritis in its tracks.
Once you are able to successfully avoid all your problem substances, even the tiniest amount of them, then arthritis inflammation tends to go completely away.
Once the body stops attacking itself (through the inflammation), it starts healing itself.

UPDATED AND EXPANDED ALLERGEN LISTS
Until recently you needed a “secret link” to get to my updates page. This is because one perk of getting this newsletter is that you get the access to the updates before anyone else.
These updates are now available to the general public on my website: http://www.ConqueringArthritis.com
Since my book was published I have found more than 20 more new products that contain hidden allergens and over 100 new names used on product labels that can indicate the presence of hidden allergens.
To go directly to these updates click on: http://www.ConqueringArthritis.com/updates.htm
An example of these updates, “SIMPLESSE®” is an artificial fat made from skim milk and egg whites. The name Simplesse on a label signals the presence of milk and egg allergens.
Further examples of hidden sources of milk allergen are the dry powder type of ASTHMA INHALERS, which can contain lactose and LATEX GLOVES which can contain casein. Both lactose and casein are derived from milk.
If you have already been working to remove all of your problem substances from your life, and happen to have come across any more names to add to my hidden allergen list, please
send them to me at: Barbara@ConqueringArthritis.com
Sharing what you have discovered (just like I have been doing) is one of the best ways to give back or “pay it forward.” The more we share what we know, the easier and quicker it is for the next person heal.
Your Champion of Renewed Health and Vigor,
