Food allergy may soon be a thing of the past – if a Chinese herbal formula turns out to be as beneficial as early test results are suggesting.

A new Chinese herbal formula, FAHF-2 (Food Allergy Herbal Formula), has already significantly reduced allergy to peanuts when it was tested on laboratory mice.

Thus far, FAHF-2 has passed two levels of clinical trials, and has been proven to be safe in humans, and its preventative effects last for 40 weeks – giving people with food allergies nearly a year free of discomfort and bloating.

Allergist Helen Chan, one of the researchers, said that the formula is a one-course treatment that may be effective against all allergens, and not just peanuts.
