Today’s Guest:

Natalie Rhone

WEBSITE: nonuts4me.com

INSTAGRAM: @nonuts4me

In today’s episode I talk to Natalie Rhone. She developed adult onset anaphylaxis and has steadily developed more and more allergies meaning that her daily meals has had to be chicken and potatoes because it’s the only things she doesn’t react to…I mean that sounds crazy!?

So what is life like? What was it like developing allergies later in life and then continuing to develop more and more. I get Natalie to tell me about her journey, the whole lot of it and where she’s got to. It’s a tough road she’s on but she’s decided that the allergies aren’t going to rule her life. This is part of why she started No Nuts 4 Me. The blog is the base for the documentary film she is doing on allergies. Why do we get them? What we should know about diagnosis, medication, OIT. The lot. I’m so excited to see it. If you’re on her email list you get to see sneak peaks by the way…

EAS 054: Kids With Allergies Finale – Mentoring an Allergy Mum

Today is the finale in our Allergy Kids Series.  Over the months of September and October each week I have been talking to kids with food allergies about what they really think about having allergies and how they live with them everyday. These allergy kids range from as young as 4 years old all the way up to the grownup allergy kids. The aim of this series is to give you an insight into the thoughts, likes, dislikes, worries and celebrations of allergy kids and how it changes over the years. 

In the finale of the series I have invited on Allergy Mum Lusi to ask me questions. The cycle has come full circle now and that is something to celebrate! From our parents as our protectors, our educators and our advocators, now we allergy kids can start helping the new generation of allergy parents.

I think this is such a wonderful circle because we can provide reassurance that allergy kids don’t have to suffer or miss out. Instead we can learn to use our allergies to become better, more creative, more skilled and more compassionate people!

A new project I am just dipping my toe into the water with is mentoring. I want to help newly diagnosed parents, allergy kids and allergy teens to be more confident. So, in this episode I invited Lusi to come on the podcast and have a recorded session where she can ask me any questions she likes. What does she want to know about living with allergies? What are her fears and worries for her daughter as she’s growing up and how can she as a Mum help.

EAS 053: Kids With Allergies – Amanda & Joella, grown up allergy kid and friend (Everyday Allergen Free)

Have you ever wondered what kids think about their food allergies? Is it as scary as we allergies think it is? Or is there a silver lining? Over the months of September and October I will be publishing the Allergy Kids Mini Series. Each week I will be talking to kids with food allergies about what they really think about having allergies and how they live with them everyday. These allergy kids range from as young as 4 years old all the way up to the grownup allergy kids. The aim of this mini series is to give you an insight into the thoughts, likes, dislikes, worries and celebrations of allergy kids and how it changes over the years. Many times allergy parents can worry that their child with allergies will miss out and will have a worse quality to life, but I know this isn’t the case and these allergy kids will show you how they don’t miss out, they just do things differently. Enjoy!

Today’s Grownup Allergy Kids:

Amanda, grown up allergy kid with multiple severe food allergies (peanuts, tree nuts, legumes, dairy soya, chicken and some fruits) and her best friend Joella.

In the penultimate episode of the Allergy Kids mini series we have reached our grown up allergy kids. For many kids, we are going to have our allergies for life. We are going to have to navigate the world and do all those normal things like school. But when you’re at school, you’re still living at home. You still have your parents hounding you with “have you got your medication with you?” “have you told your friends about your allergies?” “don’t forget to ask about ingredients!” But what is life like with allergies, outside the home bubble?

Nowadays, most teenagers head off to university, or college if you’re in the US. You have to then meet all these new people and tell your brand new flatmates that you have life threatening.

Amanda and Joella met at university, a time when they were “learning to adult.” Amanda wasn’t confident with her allergies. In the beginning she told  her new housemates by leaving a note on the fridge with the list of things she was allergic to. She didn’t want to feel a nuisance by telling people. Interestingly, Joella and Amanda’s boyfriend wanted to know why Amanda didn’t tell people, because it’s kind of important.

”As Click To Tweet and accepted it. – Amanda @EAFLifestyle” username=”eatallergysafe”]

To Joella, Amanda wasn’t living in a way that means she was missing out. Joella forgets that she has allergies because her cooking is “amazing” and whenever they meet new people this is her introduction of Amanda. Joella describes how delicious the kitchen smelled when they were in university, Joella found it amazing and surprising that even though she had so many restrictions that she could make such delicious meals you would never guess where allergen free.

””[having Click To Tweet “no it’s not sad!” – Joella @EAFLifestyle” username=”eatallergysafe”]

University gave them a birds eye view that having allergies is a who lifestyle and this is what brought Amanda and Joella to start Everyday Allergen Free. What are the challenges that adult and teens facing and how can we look at these challenges and make a positive place to address these issues.

Allergy Kid Top Tips:

Joella Top Best Friend Tips:

  1. Take that extra 10 minutes to think through how to be allergy safe
  2. Communicate about your allergy! (If you’re nervous about it: tell people before, call the restaurant before)
  3. Show people that you can look after your allergy, because you are responsible for your allergy

 

Amanda’s Top Tips:

  1. Surround yourself with good friends who care about you
  2. Just own your allergy: the earlier you start the better for you
  3. Get in the kitchen and start creating
  4. Don’t be shy about your allergy, because there is always someone out there like you even if you don’t realise it

Today’s Allergy Kid:

Juliet, 21 years old, anaphylaxis to tree nuts

Juliet is a 21 year old college student with a tree nut allergy, but not a peanut allergy. Her parents discovered her tree nut allergy when she was a little kid. As a kid her family used to go out to dinner a lot, but then one accidental cross-contamination incident at a trusted bakery rocked her confidence. Juliet didn’t want to eat out any more. She stopped eating out at restaurants for fear of cross-contamination. Then something changed. Juliet went to University in New York City and wanted to eat something different. She tried googling “nut free restaurants in New York,” but couldn’t find anything! As a 21st century young woman, this “kinda offended me,” says Juliet so she decided to make her own list. This is how her blog nutfreenewyork.com started.

Connect with Juliet on Instagram @nutfreeny

Allergy Kid Top Tips:

  1. Get out there and try new things
  2. Don’t get complacent
  3. Don’t trust everything a waiter says, trust your instincts
