The work of Janice Joneja, PhD, RDN - a specialist in food allergy and
intolerance, may be of interest to you. Janice is a countryman of yours and
was educated at the University of Birmingham. She worked closely with Dr.
Jonathon Brostoff and her work is highly regarded by the medical and
dietetic professions. Health Canada, our national health agency recommends
her methods to prevent and manage food allergies & food intolerance.
You may be interested in the new second edition of Dr. Joneja's education
resource titled Babies, Children & Food Allergy. It was compiled in
consultation with dietitians and nurses who work with mothers in the
community setting. Dietitians working in health units find this resource
very helpful as an eductional resource for themselves and as a teaching tool
for nurses. It also contains 13 copy-ready handout guides for mothers.
Also available is Dr. Joneja's 27 credit (ADA) continuing education home
study course titled Food Allergy & Intolerance: Mechanisms and Management.
Originally delivered as a university post graduate course, it contains 13
audio tapes and a 426 page guidebook. It is very useful for those interested
in the field of managing and preventing food allergy & food sensitivities.
It covers system theory through intervention diets. The expert reviewers
consider this a milestone in dietetic education. NCES, Inc. distributes both
of these publications in the US and perhaps to the UK.
Dr. Joneja's cv and more information about these is found at
I hope this is helpful to you. I apologize for not knowing how to respond to
you directly and for sending this to everyone in the network.
