Who are we, and how can we help?dots7

Action Against Allergy (AAA) is a registered national charity founded in 1978 by Mrs Amelia Nathan Hill who, since childhood, had suffered allergic reactions to many different foods and chemicals. She was chronically ill with migraine, stomach upsets, painful limbs and joints and other symptoms so severe that she was bedridden for long periods. Her doctor thought she was being poisoned!

After many years and help from methods devised by the late Dr Richard Mackarness using elimination diets,  Amelia was able to control her allergies and enjoy a normal life. She wrote her own story of her fight for health, Against the Unsuspected Enemy, which inspired thousands to write to her to share their own allergy problems and express their desperate need for help. Amelia founded AAA to give that help – and it has done so ever since.

We offer help, support and advice through our forums, articles, newsletters and events.  The best way to start fighting your own allergic condition is join us and benefit from over 35 years experience.
