Do you have little time but you need to say in the know? Then it is time to reveal one of the best kept secrets in the land of allergy, asthma and gluten-free: The Allergic Living Magazine Monthly e-Newsletters. This free monthly gem is packed full of rich information. So, let’s dive deeper into those two words: rich information. For me, rich equates to something so valuable and important that it almost feels decadent. Information, in this regard, refers to data that has been fact checked multiple times. I like my data sourced from vetted entities. For us overly scheduled busy types, getting the recent news wrapped up neatly in a bi-monthly newsletter is just what the doctor ordered. The first part of the month brings us the e-Lifestyle Report and the latter part, the e-News Report.
Can you explain the difference between FPIES and EoE? I thought I could. Until I read my e-News Report this week. I was quite off the mark regarding FPIES ages of diagnosis. I had, delivered directly to my inbox, thirteen easy to read, to the point articles about current news topics; ranging from recent findings which suggest the bacteria in saliva could be a future treatment for celiac disease to the latest developments about Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE)’s complaint filed against American Airlines for Discrimination. Even though my daughter’s eczema is mild, I was thrilled to learn more about a new non-steroidal Eczema cream hitting the US market in this issue. Bonus: there was a cooking savvy link to an allergy safe recipes search! Think Herbed Chicken Stew with Gluten-free Dumplings or Hot Chocolate Cookies that are top allergen free. YUM!
I’ve chatted here previously about the Allergic Living Lifestyle Report and now it is time for Lifestyle’s partner to get some loving. I am a news junkie and more often than not, the headlines can be scary or incomplete. This is why I focus on information from vetted sources, such as the various non-profit organizations and Allergic Living Magazine. This is a deal breaker for me. When young Oakley tragically passed away from an accidental ingestion of nut, news sources nationwide shared stories. As I attempted to piece together the various scenarios that were described, I found myself, heart-broken for the family and a touch confused as to what actually took place. I thought to myself, “if this family is brave enough to share their story to save others, like my kids, I need to understand my lesson better”. Needless to say, I was relieved when Allergic Living Magazine took on the brutal task of interviewing the family which resulted in one vetted and trusted story. I understand that other news outlets did not have the allergic/anaphylactic expertise available to them, so I do not hold that against them.
I’m anxious for the next e-News Report since it cover some of the highlights from the upcoming American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology Annual Meeting about to take place in Atlanta, GA. Editor, Gwen Smith, has promised to report back with the latest news! You can also access archived e-newsletters from the same box where you sign-up. This is a beneficial tool so can make sure you don’t miss any important articles!
I invite you to sign up for the Allergic Living Magazine e-Newsletter. I look forward to mine every month as current research, topics and news are explored along with providing tips on parenting, travel, dining and the ever popular recipes links. Simply visit the Allergic Living Magazine home page and enter your email address to sign-up in the box in the upper right hand corner.
My biggest challenge with the receiving my newsletters is that my gmail will sort the newsletter into my Promotion folder and in my swift haste to delete it by accident. BUT, as of today, I have corrected this problem by clicking on and dragging my Allergic Living email containing my newsletter, over into my Primary tab. Voila! My problem is now fixed.
Disclaimer: If you don’t know already, I’m wildly biased and am part of the Allergic Living Magazine. It is such an honor to work for this professional organization. I was a fan long, long before I joined the team. I also am a huge fan of the their recipe authors and creators. These are folks who know their way around the kitchen and I adore them too. Okay, and let’s not skip over the gorgeous food photography that I am addicted to.
