  1. Hi there Dr. Bajowala,
    Achoo! - Adventures of an Allergist Mommy is awesome! I've been reading your posts and they're so engaging :-)

    I am currently putting together a site called Allergy Kinder (www.allergykinder.com) that I'm due to launch in a couple of weeks, and I was wondering if you would like to contribute an article (it can be short, moderate or long - up to you). Our categories are Complementary Medicine, Mainstream Medicine, Diet & Nutrition and Spirituality. And of course, you can choose to submit an article that you've already posted on your own site previously. We would also include a short bio of your fine self, and a link back to your site.

    Check the site out (still getting ready for launch and under construction), and it would be wonderful if you could submit something, as you're writing is interesting, informative and engaging.

    It would be wonderful to hear from you

  2. Wow! This is great! I'm so excited for this natural therapy trial to start. I wish we lived closer to participate, but maybe I can at least help recruit some people through my blog posting about it. http://itchylittleworld.wordpress.com/2012/02/06/chicago-area-new-food-allergy-clinical-trial-w-herbal-formula/

  3. Hi Dr Sakina, is there an update on this study? Love to have access to more research studies/trials for TCM which are larger in sample size.

    Chat over twitter? @MarcieMom
