Our guest this week is Heather Fraser, an advocate for holistic health & health choice and author of The Peanut Allergy Epidemic.

About Our Guest:
Heather Fraser is a health choice advocate and author of The Peanut Allergy Epidemic. Its third edition features a foreword by another allergy parent, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Some experiences can change the course of your life completely. In 1995, this happened to me when my one-year-old child reacted violently to a taste of peanut butter.
We sought treatments such as were available at the time and urgently adapted to a state of hypervigilance. I studied nutrition and energy-based modalities looking for ways to recover. At the same time, I scoured the medical literature. I wanted to know what had happened, how and why my child and, by the late 90s, scores of other children had suddenly become atopic and anaphylactic to common foods.
Today, I am an advocate for holistic health and health choice. My studies have included BodyTalk, Quantum Touch, iridology, bioenergetics, and nutrition through IHN (Toronto). I have a special interest in consciousness-based practice. In this context, I make two muscle testing tools that are available through Ergopathics.
In 2017, the third edition of my book The Peanut Allergy Epidemic was published with a foreword by another allergy parent and friend, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and a preface by my child, Cat Fraser-Boychuk. This book is a deep dive into the complex and deeply challenging world of health politics.
In addition to studies in health, I hold an MA in Art History from Queen's University and two undergrad degrees in Art History and Education from Western University.
