Dr Rodney Ford is a paediatric gastroenterologist, allergist and nutrition consultant. He is former Associate Professor of Paediatrics at the Christchurch School of Medicine, University of Otago, New Zealand. He is recognized worldwide as an expert on adverse food reactions.
His major area of interest is the relationship between your food and your health – good or bad. In his clinics he is constantly seeing people who are suffering from eating foods that are making them ill. He has been interested in the relationship between eczema and food allergy for a long time. More recently, he has discovered that gluten plays a large part in the patho-physiology of eczema.
Dr Ford graduated with Honours from the University of New South Wales in 1974 (MB BS). He went on to study food allergy and intolerance problems in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in Paediatrics (FRACP) in 1981 and was awarded his Doctorate of Medicine (MD) by the University of New South Wales in 1982 for his thesis titled Food hypersensitivity in children: diagnostic approaches to milk and egg hypersensitivity. This was regarded as a major work regarding the diagnosis of food allergies in children.
Dr Ford currently runs The Children’s Clinic and Allergy Centre, a busy private clinic in Christchurch, New Zealand. He has written over one hundred scientific papers, including book chapters and many books.

It has been my distinct pleasure to apply the principles and steps, as outlined in Dr. Rodney Ford's new book, Eczema Cure It! to my work with many of my clients and readers who experience eczema. All of these adult clients who tried this process have reported dramatic improvements in their eczema just from following Dr. Ford's steps. This very readable new book launched upon the ocean of eczema-driven despair may stem the tide of this suffering.
One of my clients was so badly afflicted by eczema that when it was in full flare, he had to spend many hours each day and night immersed in the bathtub to reduce the pain he experienced. His damaged skin exposed large areas of unprotected flesh to the air. Anyone who has torn off a hangnail, exposing just a tiny patch of flesh, will have a small sense of the enormous and chronic pain this poor fellow endured. Although not yet completely recovered, he is so much improved, after less than a year, that he is now able to work at a job and support himself. Similarly, a professional golfer who was helping me with my golf swing, also found relief through following the steps outlined by Dr. Ford. This client was unable to get a decent night's sleep due to the constant itching of his eczema. He is now able to sleep the night through. These are just two of my many clients and readers who gratefully report dramatic relief from this very irritating condition.
