Was it Something You Ate? is about food intolerance and how to avoid it. If you've ever wondered why something you eat does not agree with you, then this is the book that will help you discover what this is likely to be, and why your system reacts badly to it.
Written in an easy-to-understand style, it will enable you to identify the cause of the toxic response that is making you ill, and how to avoid it in future.

- Did you know?
- Although many people claim to be allergic to certain foods they are misusing the word. What they are actually suffering from is an intolerance to specific natural chemicals within those foods. Food allergy can be fatal, whereas food intolerance is just an unpleasant bodily reaction and this will generally correct itself given time, rest and plenty of water. The trick is to know what the chemicals are, which foods contain them, and then you can take the necessary action to avoid taking in an excess. I wrote this book in collaboration with a medical doctor, Peter Fell, who specialised in treating these conditions, and we were able to draw on actual case files of people he had treated.
