“I’m Not Nuts”: Living with Food Allergies

In recent years the word “allergy” has become a catch-all phrase.   The term “food allergy” is misinterpreted as anything from a stomach ache to a rash, most often confused with a food intolerance. What many people do not understand is that food allergies are serious and can be life-threatening, just as an allergy to bee stings can be fatal.

    I just finished watching Kevin J. Lindenmuth’s new documentary, “I’m Not Nuts”: Living With Food Allergies. Am I allowed to make this required viewing for every childcare worker and educator in the country? Because I’d like to. This film clearly and carefully lays out the basics of what it’s like to be food allergic and/or to have a food-allergic child. Visual mediums are so powerful–I think this will touch people who don’t know much about food allergies in a way that written stories cannot. The videotape footage of a one-year old, egg-allergic girl scratching her hands at her first birthday party because she was allergic to the eggs in the cake made me weep. (Her parents didn’t know about her allergy at the time, of course.)

    For those who do live with food allergies, the information here is nothing new, or at least not very much of it. But the feeling is one of a support group meeting and allergist’s visit right in your own living room. I found myself nodding my head in agreement and talking to the screen. “Yes! This is what it’s like.”

    Full of interviews with the food allergic and their families, as well as interviews with allergy experts such as Terry Furlong, co-founder of FAAN, Scott Sicherer, M.D., researcher in the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute at Mount Sinai, and Harvey Leo, M.D. and Ben Song, M.D., of Allergy and Immunology Associates of Ann Arbor, MI, I think this documentary is a great resource.

    I have a child with some severe allergies and this documentary explians things in a way that makes sense. It was also helpfulto be able to give it to family and say, “see! I’m not kidding about this.” I highly suggest watching/buying if you know a child with allergies.
