  • Targeting nerve endings to curb allergic asthma

    25 Jun 2015 | 10:09 am
    A study supports a surprising alternative approach to controlling asthma: targeting certain sensory nerve endings in the lungs.

When these neurons are selectively silenced in mouse models of acute and chronic asthma, both inflammation and bronchial twitchiness are reduced.

  • Cost of EpiPens How Much Do You Pay?

    26 May 2015 | 11:38 am
    I really have to wonder about the cost of EpiPens. Why are they so expensive? Why do they cost less in Canada? I'm Canadian I was quoted $99.99 for an adult EpiPen (May, 2015) that would be 20$ after our insurance. Yet some Americans not qualified for insurance/ discount programs are charged around $300! Not everyone qualifies for the $0 co-pay offered. In general I thought the costs of drugs have gone up because of costs of research and development, and testing before a drug can reach the market. The inventor of the EpiPen Sheldon Kaplan (who never got a penny in royalties) has largely been…

    An estimated 300 million people suffer from asthma worldwide. Asthma inflammation affects the entire bronchial tree. The small airways, i.e. less than 2 mm diameter, can be affected by inflammation and remodelling. However, their contribution to asthma control and exacerbations has been minimally investigated. Small airways function can be assessed with invasive and non-invasive techniques, including physiological and radiographic testing, in addition to direct and indirect assessments of inflammation. These tests are usually only available in specialised chest clinics. Unfortunately, there…
  • Thiazolidinediones may provide a new anti-inflammatory approach to asthma

    Ves Dimov, M.D.
    18 Jun 2015 | 5:00 am
    Thiazolidinediones are oral diabetes medications that activate peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma and have anti-inflammatory properties. Some studies have found improvements in pulmonary function in asthma patients treated with thiazolidinediones. PPAR-alpha and -gamma pathways. Image source: Wikipedia, GNU Free Documentation License.This cohort study included diabetic Veterans with asthma who were taking oral diabetes medications (2,178 patients were on thiazolidinediones). Thiazolidinediones were associated with reductions in risk of asthma exacerbation (OR = 0.79) and…
  • The microbiome in asthma

    Ves Dimov, M.D.
    2 Jun 2015 | 4:10 am
    The concept of a “common mucosal immune system” relies on cross-talk between mucosal compartments. A balance must be struck that maintains homeostasis between the microbiome and the host. This balance is constantly challenged by a number of factors leading to “dysbiosis”(imbalance) in the microbial community, which is found in asthma. The microbiome (airway or gut) may play a role in the development of specific phenotypes such as allergic or nonallergic asthma and treatment-resistant asthma. Studies of oral or aerosol administration of the microbiota for the treatment and prevention…

  • Are Epinephrine Injectors Affordable?

    30 Jun 2015 | 5:45 pm
    As a mother of a child with life threatening food allergies to peanuts and tree nuts, I am always searching for new safe foods made in dedicated facilities. That's the gold standard to me, so when I find a new safe food, I feel victorious! Unfortunately, they are always more expensive than the "regular" versions, but I am still so glad to find the products at all.What about those life-saving epinephrine injectors? They are not free either. Currently, both Mylan and Sanofi offer coupons to make the cost of purchasing epinephrine injectors more manageable. For some, the coupon brings their…
  • Food Allergy Parents Celebrate the End of Another School Year

    23 Jun 2015 | 6:17 pm
    Another school year has come to an end. Parents of food allergic children visit Facebook support groups and networks to share their gratitude for a school year ending with the retrieval of two unused Epipens from the school nurse. If you don't have a child with life threatening food allergies, it's probably something you don't even think of. And why would you? The last day of school is always an exciting, joy-filled one. It's the end of one stage and the beginning of another. Gowing up, with all its milestones--from preschool to kindergarten, from elementary to middle school, and middle to…
  • Is that a Hive?

    19 Jun 2015 | 1:40 pm
    You know those hives that appear so subtly around the edges of your mouth, you almost doubt you're seeing them? You think to yourself "Are those hives?" And then you think, "No, that's just from eating a sandwich with toasted bread" or "that's the ketchup" or "that's from the sauce." But you keep watching and the pinkness around the edges of lips begins to swell ever so slightly until you realize you are certain that's a hive or two. The unmistakable shinyness of puffy pink skin around the edges of one's mouth right after eating or even during eating--yep, it's hives. But it's not itchy, you…

  • Different Forms for Different Pages in WordPress

    Ashley Jackson
    22 Jun 2015 | 5:06 am
    Have you ever wanted different subscription forms for different pages or categories in your WordPress blog? Sidebars do not always have to contain the same content. From our perspective, changing a sidebar is useful if you have individual mailing lists for each category, and want to put the right subscription form in the right sidebar. I recently visited Wordcamp in North Canton, OH and discovered a powerful plugin that accomplishes this easily without extra PHP coding. Download the plugin “Widgets on Pages” and activate (although the plugin shows as not being updated in over 2…

    This morning I realized that a key feature was missing from FeedBlitz’s monetization option. Premium FeedBlitz publishers should be able to suppress advertisements from their feeds and mailings without logging into FeedBlitz and making changes to their account. Sometimes we  have to write about things that are too personal, too important, or too sad for ads of any kind to be appropriate. As of today if a post is tagged or categorized as “noads” there will be no ad in that RSS entry or added by that post mailed as a stand alone mailing. You can apply “noads” as a…

    Onespot Allergy
    15 Jun 2015 | 12:41 pm
    Recently, I bought live clean healthy balance shampoo and conditioner at Shoppers Drug Mart. While double checking the ingredient list of the products for any nut oils, I had a nasty surprise: The shampoo contains nut oil! As Jacob has life-threatening tree nut allergies, the last thing I want is to do is contaminate myself and our shower stall with nut oil. I didn’t catch the allergen in question at first glance, and the way it’s displayed in the ingredient list is potentially misleading, so I wanted to ensure that I share a warning here. The ingredient is listed as:…

First, I was Onespot Allergy.

Then, I partnered with Dr. Mark Greenwald, an Allergist, and also became EpiCenter Medical. My readers supported that transition as I shared our content…
  • Spotted: Peanut Containing Candy Display Inside Drinks Fridge At Mac’s Convenience Store

    Onespot Allergy
    6 Mar 2015 | 12:35 pm
    I was at a Mac’s Convenience Store the other day. When I opened the fridge and reached in to get a drink, I was very startled to find that a rack of Reese’s peanut butter cups was mounted on the inside of the fridge door, which was right next to the side of my face. It simply wasn’t on my radar to expect peanut containing candy to be in the drinks fridge, and I expect that a surprise product placement like that could make a peanut allergic individuals uncomfortable, since their allergen is right next to their face in wrapped packages. It makes sense for Hershey’s to…

Written by Jenny Kales, it’s an excellent site to check out, if you’re curious.

Once it cooled off, I cut it into bars. I’m excited to have made my own homemade chewy bars. The recipe via The Nut-Free Mom Blog is: 1/3 cup honey 1/4 cup SunButter (I used 4 On-The-Go packs)…

  • When Pollen Strikes!

    When the wind blows, the pollen inside these sacks will be released, filling the air for miles. One of the major causes of allergic disease, such as allergic rhinitis (also known as hay fever), is airborne pollen. All plants produce some pollen as part of their reproductive cycle. There are thousands of plant species that grow in the United States but only a small number of those are significant sources of allergenic pollen. Plants that DO produce important allergens have several characteristics in common: First, they are wind pollinated rather than insect pollinated. Next, they produce…

    For every aggravation I have experienced due to my food allergies, there are TWO to THREE things that have happened in my life and in my body that are true MIRACLES.

This is one of the biggest reasons why I became an AllerCoach so that I could help others find a faster path to their own transformation.
