Failsafe booklet

The Free Failsafe booklet, intended as a support and companion to the DVD “Fed Up with Children’s Behaviour”, is available as a free downloadable pdf file (250Kb), 30 pages.See other FREE booklets.

This booklet is a guide for families only wanting to cut down. If you intend to avoid salicylates and amines strictly, please read more widely. For symptoms severe enough to see a doctor, or conditions with a diagnosis such as ADHD, we recommend a three week trial of the RPAH (Royal Prince Alfred Hospital) elimination diet - free of additives, low in salicylates and amines, dairy free and/or gluten free if indicated - to find out exactly which food chemicals are contributing to problems. In our experience, this is the most effective elimination diet in the world.

"I've watched your fantastic DVD three times since receiving it. It has made me go back to the drawing board, I think I missed salicylates earlier. You might want to reconsider the title "Fed up with Children's Behaviour", it is not just about children I feel, and it is not just about behaviour either. It goes much further. Many people who are not concerned about children's behaviour could still benefit in a big way from the DVD. Perhaps consider "Your Food, Your Health, Your Relationships & Your wellbeing: YOUR LIFE!!!" or something similar. Although the focus in this DVD was on children, but many a time adults are shown to benefit as well."

  • The Failsafe Cookbook (revised edition 2007) from your library or bookstore. It's not just a recipe book - there's heaps of information about food intolerance as well, and a step by step guide about how to do the elimination diet
  • See our list of supportive dietitians. Most people only need one or two visits to a dietitian plus some phone or email backup. Dietitians say it cuts an hour off consultation time needed if people have read Fed Up before they go
  • Friendly Food by researchers from the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Allergy Unit, available from libraries, bookstores and Friendly Food has excellent colour-coded salicylate and amine charts, but in our experience, very few families succeed with Friendly Food alone. One failsafer wrote: 'Thank you for writing your fantastic "Failsafe Cookbook". We have been using it for a while and have recently gotten "Friendly Foods" as well and as good as it is for a lot of stuff, I'm SO grateful for the simple, family friendly recipes in your book"
