In the UK today, it is estimated that one in four of us will suffer from allergies and intolerances, many of which are food related. This course will allow students to become skilful at recognising the signs and symptoms of food allergies and intolerances, how to manage them and when to seek urgent medical help.  Specific conditions including Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Childhood Eczema, Asthma, Fibromyalgia and others, as well as those milder conditions that are nevertheless uncomfortable and distressing, will be investigated.
