Can you be allergic to honey?

The Jewish New Year, which is fast approaching is synonymous with the delicious, sticky and very sweet honey. Children come home from school singing songs about honey, cards are sent around with images of honey, honey cake and cookies are made in homes and most importantly a significant part of the holiday's dinner which revolves around dipping a piece of apple in honey. Honey signifies sweetness- the hope that the future year is filled with experiences that are pleasant and joyful. There are approximately 320 varieties of honey which vary in colour and flavour. Honey is made by honeybees using nectar...

Exercise-induced anaphylaxis/Food-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis

EIA/FDEAI
Exercise-induced anaphylaxis- (EIA) is a rare condition where the anaphylaxis transpires in connection with physical activity. Food-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis (FDEIA) on the other hand is a sub-category of EIA and occurs when the physical activity is within a relatively short time-frame of consuming a specific food pre- or post-exercise. In 90% of cases, symptoms occur within 30 minutes although it can occur a few hours later. Even though the first reported case of this condition was way back in 1979, there is still a lot of confusion regarding both EIA and FDEIA. This is due to a combination of the rarity...

What Our Clients Say

Meticulous in their preparations

During our recent visit to Israel, we really struggled to find food for our son who has anaphylactic level allergies to egg and sesame. We approached both restaurants and hotels and were told they were unable or unwilling to take responsibility for preparing his food.

 After learning about Dr. Eliana on-line, we contacted her in the hopes that she could provide a ‘normal’ restaurant experience for our family.

 Both she and Shani were meticulous in their preparations with the restaurants to ensure that our son had a wonderful and safe experience.

 We truly appreciate their efforts to take care of our son, and to provide us with a lovely vacation experience.

Comfortable, calm, and at ease

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing gift you have given us over this Pesach- the gift of having you with us!!!!

We have NEVER felt more comfortable, calm, and at ease than we did these past 10 days. Your warmth, professionalism, kindness, and care shown through in all that you did.

My children are so grateful that they were able to be with you this Pesach. You made sure that they were so well looked after and they felt so at ease and comfortable with you! You were so amazing and approachable to them! And they LOVED all the food you so amazingly prepared (supervised allergy-free food preparation, managed menus) for them!

It’s very difficult for us to trust people when it comes to our kids and allergies. You magically were able to take away ALL of our anxieties, and nervousness (and we don’t give that away so easily!!)

We can never fully thank you enough. We truly feel that you instantly became part of our family and we look forward to G-d willing being able to be with you and plan amazing trips with you many many many more times!!!!
