Trace Adkins for Food Allergies

I'm sure those of us familiar with food allergies might also be aware that Trace Adkins is up for a pretty hefty sum of money to donate to a charity of his choice. He is still in the running on NBC's show “The Celebrity Apprentice.” His charity contribution could be huge for all of us because he's chosen to give the money to The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN).

According to a recent FAAN article, "Adkins is competing in business-driven tasks around New York City to raise money and awareness for FAAN, his designated charity. Throughout the series, over a million dollars will be raised for various charities, and the winner who gets crowned as the first “Celebrity Apprentice” will also have the honor of delivering a $250,000 bonus check to their charity of choice."

Trace has a little girl with food allergies. According to FAAN, "it was because of his daughter’s experience that Trace was motivated to join the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN). “I know firsthand how important FAAN’s efforts to increase funding for food allergy research are,” says Trace. He and his family turn to FAAN for help managing Brianna’s food allergies, and now Trace is helping FAAN as its national spokesperson." To learn more about Trace Adkins and his connection with FAAN, check out FAAN's website.

Go to FAAN or NBC and vote yes for Trace!!

I see a doctor who has been curing me of all the food allergies is just a short amount of time. Before going to this doctor, I haven't been able to eat: soy products, dairy, wheat, egg, and many others. I am now eating yogurt and hard-boiled eggs thanks to him. Blood tests in the past verified my allergies for years, now I'm free of them. Many others who go to this doctor have been cured as well. I would like to meet Trace Adkins, and introduce him and his family to Doc Meeker.


oh...I don't have to be on any restrictive diet or avoid anything anymore. Most all of the doctors I've read about can only give advice on not what to eat!
