'Could it be an allergy?' is one of the questions people most commonly ask their doctors. With an increasing variety of symptoms being attributed to allergies, the question is becoming more and more frequent and important. What can sufferers and carers do if they suspect an allergy?

Dr Joe FitzGibbon's Could it be an Allergy? is a comprehensive guide to allergic symptoms. He discusses their complexities and confirms that it is possible to get to the root cause of many of them, and so find a way to a healthy and often symptom-free future.

Could it be an Allergy? is written for the layperson by a leading specialist in the field. Carefully laid out, each section includes case histories, questions and answers on the particular allergy, and advice on what to look out for and how to address it. A directory of support and help groups throughout Ireland and Britain is also included.

    Everyone knows we inherit our physical DNA, but few people realize we also inherit our emotional DNA—an ancestral blueprint of thoughts, feelings, and actions handed down to us through multiple generations of repeated family patterns. In Decoding Your Emotional Blueprint, transformational coach Judy Wilkins-Smith shares the good news that no matter what blueprint you've been given, you have the power to change your life.Wilkins-Smith adeptly guides listeners through both the art and science of creating lasting transformation by working with systemic dynamics and constellations. As she explains, all of the different systems we belong to—our families, organizations, careers, religions, clubs, cultures—subtly determine how we think, feel, choose, and act. When we illuminate our invisible allegiances to these systems, we're able to make new choices and watch a world of possibilities open before us.Decoding Your Emotional Blueprint brings you a wealth of hands-on strategies and practices so you can learn to detect hidden and multigenerational patterns, recognize their purpose, and then transform old cycles to create an extraordinary life.
