Michelle Berriedale Johnson
Michelle has been involved with food sensitivity for nearly 30 years, ever since her baby son was diagnosed with milk intolerance.
So horrified was she by the dearth of ‘freefrom’ foods that she turned aside from a successful career as a food historian to manufacture a range of gluten milk and egg free foods. These were followed by a magazine, a number of books, a large website about food sensitivity, very successful industry awards for ‘freefrom’ food and a small publishing house, Curlew Books, focusing on rare and hard to treat conditions. She also runs an active blog at www.michellesblog.co.uk .
Michelle has worked for many years with Dr Joneja and is delighted that her books have proved to be such a successful addition to the Curlew Books list.
Curlew books aim to inspire an informed route to better health. They are written by respected experts with proven track records.
It can be lonely suffering with an illness that is dismissed or not recognised properly, and frustrating if you are a health professional trying to highlight them.
Curlew’s titles focus on explaining poorly recognised, poorly understood and hard to treat health conditions. We also publish books looking at novel, but tried and tested therapies that help manage those conditions.
Our books are evidence based and offer insight into difficult conditions and their treatments and are at beginner or comprehensive level. Our comprehensive books are suitable for healthcare professionals, as well as consumers looking for in-depth information.
