Hope over Peanut Allergy 'Cure'

A group of children with peanut allergies have had their condition effectively cured, doctors believe.

A team from Cambridge's Addenbrooke's Hospital exposed four children to peanuts over a six-month period, gradually building up their tolerance.
By the end the children were eating the equivalent of five peanuts a day.

It is the first time a food allergy has been desensitised in such a way, although a longer-term follow up is now needed to confirm the findings.

This could be huge news for many thousands of people around the globe.

Peanut allergies affect one in 50 young people in the UK and commonly cause breathing problems. Although at its most serious, it can lead to a potentially life-threatening anaphylactic shock.

That means there are several children with this condition in every school!

Great to hear some really good news. Let's hope the findings can be confirmed in further trials!

This isn't the first this has been tried (perhaps the first time for peanut allergies). My son had heavy allergies as a child and we went to an MD ear, nose and throat guy. He believed in this type of treatment and took my son off of a lot of foods, and gradually reintroduced them. He also had a series of sublingual drops he had to take. He was relieved of all of his allergies except the molds.

It's clearly success stories like that that have led to this research.

This could be the beginning of the end of a nightmare for peanut allergy sufferers, though. (And no few have died, it has to be said.)

Let's hope.

My daughter was allergic to nuts and also had severe cedar allergies. i took her to see a doc that did Neuro-Modulation Technique (NMT) and Kinesiology. She got thru cedar season with flying colors no problems at all. she won't eat peanuts b/c she seems to have already developed a psychological aversion to them b/c of her past severe allergy reactions to them. BUT when i tested her and spread some peanut butter on her back she had no reaction at all. before seeing this doctor she would break out in blisters and hives when coming in contact with the stuff. i know this b/c she had several episodes in school/day care where other kids have peanut butter and then touched her and she would break out. it WAS that bad........

edit: he also put her on a diet to rid her of candida and she take probiotics regularly now.

They tried this therapy on me back in the late 50's and it didn't work!
If I eat peanuts or any nut or extract of same I go into anaphalactic shock depending how much I accedently ingest. These DR.'s better keep close tabs on the kids while they treat them! Its dangerous!

That's a good illustration of how serious a problem this can be.

Sounds like a rare success story. Maybe we can now hear a lot more in future.

It is the same theory with allergy shots. Well when they gave me the allergy shots I had such a severe reaction I ended up taking an ambulance. I agree it is dangerous.

Holy Cow! That sounds like Russian roulette.

Our 6 year old has nut allergies. it will be interesting to see the long term followup on this

I've been told by more than one Alergist that its just one type of protien that is the problem with most people. With me its every type of nut there is. I can't tell you how many times I have been nearly killed in restaurants because they don't tell you whats in the entre's they cook. Even if you ask, they sometimes don't know because they buy some food preprocessed and its not marked in the ingredients so be carefull out there with your kids. Its the deserts that will be harmfully suspect in most cases. Take that info from a 60 year sufferer!
