About Rodney Ford

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.

Review by: Al Klapperich on May 19, 2011 : star star star star star
"The Gluten Syndrome" is for you, if:

You are searching for answers to your "unexplained" health issues.
Your celiac disease test results came back negative and you are still sick.
You are "Sick, tired and grumpy".

Dr. Ford shares a lifetime of knowledge and experience in this manuscript [I like to think of it as a gluten-free manifesto]. He explains how and why gluten can be at the root of ill-health and why it's often overlooked by many medical professionals. He even explains how interpret your own test results!

The eBook edition of "The Gluten Syndrome" builds upon the second edition [printed version] by offering updated information on testing, a list of gluten-savvy doctors/researchers, recent medical articles from 2009 - 2011 and a host of other tweaks.
