He is a member of the FAAIA, AAA&I, and former president of Pasco Co. Medical Society. Today, Jaime Kratz, M.D. is one of the most prominent Allergists and Immunologists in the area.

With more than 20 years of experience to his name, it is no surprise that Dr. Kratz is an Allergy and Immunology expert. His Port Richey, Florida practice combines expertise, compassion and cutting-edge technology to treat patients with allergies, asthma, eczema, insect and respiratory immune deficiencies, including HIV/AIDS, and a number of other immune system deficiencies. As one of the doctors at Morton Plant Hospital, Morton Plant North Bay Hospital, and with affiliations at multiple area hospitals, Dr. Kratz and his team are the finest at diagnosing, treating, managing and reducing symptoms for his patients. 

While each client deals with his or her specialized condition, Dr. Kratz concentrates much of his time and research to his patients who suffer from the symptoms of allergies. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, “Allergies are one of the most common chronic diseases. An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system sees a substance as harmful and overreacts to it. The substances that cause allergic reactions are allergens” ( In order to diagnose an allergy, a doctor must review the patient’s medical history, give a physical exam and do tests to identify the allergens that are causing the problem(s). Allergies are serious business and one reason why sufferers desire a top-notch Allergist and Immunologist to diagnose and treat his or her symptoms. 

In his years of studies and treatment of patients, Dr. Kratz recognizes that while there are many types of allergies, food allergies are at the top of the list. In fact, food allergies affect more than 50 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( Among these statistics, it is said that while any food can cause an allergic reaction, there are only eight food types that account for 90% of all food-related allergies. Tree nuts are on the list and are one of the most dangerous food allergy culprits, something Dr. Kratz takes seriously. 

A food allergy can result in a severe reaction called anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction that impacts the respiratory system, causes a drop in blood pressure and affects heart rate. It can happen in minutes and can be fatal if not treated immediately. Because of a global awareness regarding tree nuts, most American schools do not allow nuts on campus, arguing that “one student’s snack is another student’s poison”. 

Heart of the matter. What is Sacha Inchi and how can you get your hands on some?

Sacha Inchi seeds come from the fruit of the perennial Plukenetia Volubilis plant. It is natively grown in South America and abundantly found in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru as well as in Thailand and Southeast Asia. The climate in which they are grown allows for crops to flourish. The pod itself is star-shaped and contains an inner seed. Crops of Sacha Inchi are grown year-round and take approximately 8 months to mature. At full harvest, the once green seeds turn black and produce 400-500 seeds. They are classified as a drupe (a thin-skinned, fleshy fruit, containing an inner seed) and is not at all related to the legume or nut family. In order to make the seeds edible, they are first harvested, then dried and roasted.
