Headaches, Bloating and Weight Gain
Cathy Maguire from Ireland took a YorkTest food intolerance test in March 2013 after suffering prolonged digestive problems. The constipation, wind and bloating she was experiencing were all classic symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
So severe was her condition that she frequently had to visit the hospital.
The tests she underwent could not get to the root cause of the problem and the medication she was prescribed only made her feel worse.
Not only were her symptoms uncomfortable and at times painful, they also caused her great embarrassment.
As a result of the unwanted weight gain Cathy was experiencing, her confidence began to plummet:
After struggling with the combination of her weight gain, poor health and the negative impact on her mood, Cathy decided to try a different route to get to the cause of her problems.
When she received her results, Cathy learnt she was reacting to egg white, egg yolk and, surprisingly, peas.
To better understand the changes she needed to make to her diet and to ensure that she replaced her trigger foods with nutritious alternatives, she booked her consultation with YorkTest Nutritional Therapist Catherine, who talked her through the results and helped her plan delicious, satisfying meals.
Now armed with the knowledge of her food intolerance and supported by the advice of the YorkTest Nutritional Therapists, Cathy has been able to manage her health and weight and is looking forward to a bright future.
YorkTest advise that you consult with your GP first if you are experiencing the types of symptoms mentioned in this testimonial.
