Food Allergies and Sensitivities Targeted by New Food Scanner


For a person that has allergies and food sensitivities, living a normal life can be a difficult maze to navigate.  Isabel Hoffman and her 14-year-old daughter know this to be a fact.  After moving from Europe to the U.S., Isabel’s daughter became very ill.  Her doctors were mystified about what could be causing the illness.  Therefore, her daughter’s symptoms continued to worsen.  Her symptoms included, light sensitivity, tremors, low blood pressure, and hives.  Her condition became so bad that she had to drop out of school.  Isabel finally had enough and sought Dr. Neil Nathan, the author of, On Hope and Healing: For Those Who Have Fallen Through the Medical Cracks.

Her daughter received a diagnosis of several ailments and allergies such as mild toxicity.  Hoffman’s daughter finally received the correct diagnosis, allowing her to start getting better.  After a year of suffering and searching for answers, Hoffman’s daughter returned to school as if nothing had happened to her.   Isabel watched her daughter’s speedy recovery and decided she wanted to help others who may have the same problems.

She created a device that scans the atmosphere and food for toxins and ingredients that are harmful to someone with allergies or sensitivities.  The TellSpec will debut for $350-$400.  Isabel hopes that the price will eventually lower to $50.  Her device has already won the hearts and minds of people on IndieGogo, earning nearly four times the funding that she requested at just under $400,000.  Now that the project has funds, a new day for people suffering from allergies and food intolerances is on the horizon.
