Why YorkTest?

YorkTest are a well-established, long term player in the field of food intolerance†. I have used their tests for many years as a practitioner and always found their tests to be reliable and patient friendly. The team at YorkTest are also very professional to deal with.

What are the highlights of your role?

That’s an easy one. There are so many people I talk to who have had digestive issues for years. They have been back and forth to the GP, had all the tests under the sun and a number of medications as well, but their symptoms have still grumbled on making their lives miserable. Something as simple as a change of diet can often be the crux to their problems. I get a real buzz working with these people who put the effort in to replace certain food groups and feel their symptoms reduce and ultimately disappear. As a nutritional therapist, I believe food should never be underestimated in the path to good health and YorkTest concurs with this.
