"For years the orthodox medical profession has neglected the role of food intolerance in ill health. Science has now moved on and and laboratory tests such as those provided by YorkTest Laboratories can help identify food to which people may be sensitive".
Olympian and world marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe told us that she started to suffer from symptoms that were so unbearable it was affecting her training.
She was recommended to use the FoodScan programme from YorkTest Laboratories by friends and fellow athletes.
Her test came back informing her she had IgG antibody reactions to egg, chicken, wheat, tomatoes and dairy.
After some time on her new diet Paula returned to YorkTest for a retest of her FoodScan. Her results came back as a surprise as she learned that she was reacting to blackcurrant, yeast, soya bean, gluten and chilli pepper. Paula was advised on how to best eliminate these foods from her diet without taking away their key health benefits.

I was shocked that I could be reacting to these foods as they are not the usual suspects, it made sense as I was drinking blackcurrant juice nearly every day, yeast and gluten was in virtually every meal and I included peppers in my food several times a week.
