I created Allergy Zone in the hope that it will make life easier for those who are living with or caring for people with allergies.
As a busy mum of three I fully understand the demands of day-to-day living and really appreciate anything that can help to save me time. I hope that by sharing my family’s experiences and information I have discovered I can help to save you time and help to educate you and your family to make living with allergies a little easier.
Please feel free to take a look at our ‘Tried & Tested‘ section where we (my family and I) have put various products to the test and give completely honest and unbiased reviews. By signing up to our newsletter you can be sure that you don’t miss out on anything you might find interesting and useful.
I would just like to say that I am not from a medical background, I am just a mum who is trying to do the best for her family, so any reviews or articles that I have written on this site are personal. I am not qualified to offer medical advice so if you have any questions or concerns regarding your health or treatment you should always see your GP or other qualified health professional.
I have three daughters who all have allergies and food intolerances, thankfully the youngest two only have a couple (so far – fingers crossed!). My eldest daughter who is now fourteen has several allergies, some which she has grown out of and others that she seems to have grown into.
When I discovered my daughter had allergies I was shocked; I had no knowledge of allergies or intolerances and there was very little information available to me. Little did I know of the impact that this was going to have on day to day family life and the journey that we were about to embark on.
Fast forward fourteen years and things have improved; with the internet there is so much information readily available and the range of food and products that can help in making life easier for those living with allergies has increased massively. Things are positive and are moving in the right direction but we are still not there, there is still a lack of awareness and understanding and a lot of misconceptions about allergies.
I hope that this website will help to educate people about allergies and also raise and promote allergy awareness. I want to create a site that I wish had been available to me eleven years ago, as I have spent years struggling frustratedly to find useful and relevant information.
If this site helps just one person, then I will be very happy.
I dedicate this website to anyone living with allergies, especially my three beautiful daughters.
