“I feel great and completely back to normal”


57-year-old account manager, Callum Anderson, had been suffering with bloating and worsening digestive issues for six months.

Callum explained how these symptoms affected him in his day to day life, “I noticed that I was feeling uncomfortably bloated after eating certain things. Often my stomach would be quite hard even the next day. The symptoms really affected my sleep so I often felt sluggish at work and unable to concentrate for long periods. I definitely did less exercise (gym, walking, cycling) as my energy levels were reduced.”

After hearing about YorkTest from a contact on LinkedIn, Callum decided to give food sensitivity testing a try to get to the root cause of his symptoms.

After taking a Premium Food Sensitivity Test, Callum found he had IgG reactivity to a number of different foods including eggs, wheat, yeast, spirulina and peaches.

After eliminating his trigger ingredients, Callum saw visible improvements almost instantly.  “Once removed, I felt so much better very quickly and I felt much less bloated. I am now going to the gym, walking and cycling much more. I did also lose weight in the process as I was no longer eating bread, pasta, cakes etc.”

Talking about his experience with trying to eliminate multiple foods from his diet, Callum said: “I found this process quite easy, but definitely missed certain foods.”

YorkTest analyses your IgG reactions to 200 food and drinks – from common ingredients like cow’s milk, gluten and egg, to health superfoods like kale and quinoa.

The process, which involves sending a finger-prick blood sample to the company’s laboratories revealed Callum’s sensitivities. Following on from the test, the YorkTest Customer Care Team are on hand to answer any queries and offer follow-up advice along with our expert nutritional therapists.

When asked how he found his experience with our customer service, Callum said: “The Care Team have been great. Really appreciated the recent follow-up call.”

On his overall experience with YorkTest Callum remarked, “My life’s changed quite a bit. I feel better, have lost weight and I am enjoying being active again. I feel great and completely back to normal.”
