What Parents Are Saying

"Food allergies can be tricky for anyone to understand, and as a pediatrician, I’ve noticed that even healthcare professionals get confused about the differences with different types of food reactions, let alone when to give epinephrine. Dr. Hoyt does a wonderful job clarifying common myths with evidence-based guidelines and also reassuring food allergy families. So thankful for her wonderful podcast!"

"Like having an allergist as a best friend. I’ve learned so much on Dr Hoyt’s podcast and it’s really helped me navigate my toddler’s peanut and egg allergies. I had to administer epinephrine for the first time this weekend when my toddler had a reaction that included violent coughing and vomiting while we were at Disneyland. I had so much gratitude to Dr Hoyt during that event because I have heard epis discussed frequently on her show, I was well prepared with epinephrine in my diaper bag, and the Auvi-Q epi Dr Hoyt recommended on this show was extremely simple and effective to use. We asked a Disneyland worker for assistance to get to an emergency room and my toddler recovered quickly. Throughout the experience I felt guided by Dr Hoyt’s voice (rather than even my own allergist’s) and I’m just so grateful to her for making the information on this podcast available. Thank you so much Dr Hoyt. 100% recommend."

"Breath of fresh air in a confusing world. It is comforting to hear an allergy doctor speak to parents and professionals who deal with food allergies on a daily basis. So many times these types of conversations can seem stuffy, but Dr. Hoyt is warm, understanding and discusses all her topics in a way that all can understand, not just those in the medical field. As a food allergy parent, this podcast and blog excite me."

"So, so valuable. I was introduced to Dr. Hoyt when she diagnosed my son with a nut allergy......at 17 years old! She not only knows her stuff but is also the sweetest, most engaging doctor I’ve ever met. What else could anyone ask for in such a valuable, educational podcast?? Top notch, expert analysis combined with a friendly, inviting presentation. You’ll enjoy the information while feeling like you just had a conversation over tea with your neighbor."

Have you experienced these challenges in parenting a kiddo with food allergy?

The Need for Credible,
Helpful Resources

Food allergy families are savvy, and they want accurate information to help them navigate the day-to-day and to provide anticipatory guidance on what to expect at different ages and stages as well as support in managing the mental health aspects of this disease.

The Emotional
Rollercoaster

Although it is rare for a child to die of anaphylaxis, the potential that such a tragic event could occur is absolutely nerve-wracking. Combine that with having to discuss your kiddo's food allergy with so many people just to keep your kiddo safe, and frustrations can and do occur.

The Ever-Changing
Journey

Every family's path is unique, but there are milestones you may experience. These may include a period of unknown as you are awaiting further evaluation by a specialist. Or perhaps you are mourning your loss of normalcy or relationships are strained due to the new restrictions on your child. You may also face financial challenges that were not a concern prior to diagnosis.

These challenges are real, and Pam and Dr. Hoyt are here to help you navigate them all.
