101 Hints, Tips and Bits of Wisdom from President Ronald Reaganís Allergist
http://healthandenergy.com/ ^ | Jon Traudt

Posted on 02/09/2006 7:15:26 AM PST by mother22wife21

President’s Ronald Reagan's former allergist, Ralph Bookman, M.D., has earned the respect of doctors and patients by developing effective ways to minimize allergy problems. He is an ‘old school’ scholar with a tremendous amount of valuable information for allergy sufferers.

While Governor of California, Ronald Reagan came looking for Dr. Bookman for some allergy relief. Ronald Reagan liked what he saw With Dr. Bookman it’s not hard to like, what you see is what you get.

"The practice of allergy has become overly complicated and complex, says Dr. Bookman. It’s essentially a very simple subject, and unfortunately, some of its most effective treatments have been all but forgotten".

Here, then, are a number of those treatments, tips, explanations and opinions culled from a series of interviews and from Dr. Bookman’s excellent book, The Dimensions of Clinical Allergy (Charles C. Thomas, publisher; 1985).

An associate clinical professor at the University of Southern California School of Medicine and a member of the Advisory Council of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Bookman still makes his own allergy extracts and still dispenses his highly opinionated advice to a select group of patients — including the former President — four days a week.

We’re extremely pleased to be able to bring you this small sample of Dr. Bookman’s wisdom as a special treat.

I hope I did this correctly, it is my first post. I searched using keyword Allergies, and there seemed to be some sufferers among us Freepers.

The list contains some very interesting information.

Also, I was unaware that our President Reagan was such an allergy sufferer.

Admin, please move to appropriate place if I have totally fouled up. Thank you! :D

5. Bake Your Paper "Newsprint is a problem for some people because of irritative solvents in the ink. Problems only occur with freshly printed papers and can be avoided simply by putting new papers into an oven set on very low heat for around 20 minutes or so".

lol, one of my favs. I alwaqys wonder who the first person to try this was?

LOL! Made me think, that's fine for the newsprint allergy, but what about the news? If it's the Washington Post nothing less than an open fire will do...

You are very welcome! Thanks for checking it out.

My seven month old son is having lots of problems and I was googling and came across it. I'm thinking of looking into getting Dr.Bookman's book.

As you probably saw above, Fred Nerks and I were joking about putting the newspaper in the oven and baking it. Seems true to course since most newspaper articles are only half-baked anyway!

Wow!   Those are gorgeous photos on your Freeper page!

(I can't figure out how water stays in your rivers if you're all upside-down there in The Down Under.)

Not only does the water stay in the rivers but when we flush the toilet the water swirls in the opposite direction, just like the cyclones do...but you call them hurricanes. Other than that, we have lots in common.
The pics were taken in the Tweed Valley Hinterland. That's on the border of New South Wales and Queensland.

Haven't you heard? Islam self-destructed. Madmo was exposed as a fraud - and all over the planet the muzzies are jumping off cliffs like lemmings!
