“Just get the test done, you won’t regret it”

42-year-old civil engineer, Craig Jones, had been struggling with acne, itching, blocked sinuses and digestive issues including stomach pains, bloating and heartburn. His symptoms had been gradually getting worse over a six to seven year period.

When asked about how these symptoms affected his life, Craig said: “Everyday was a grind, but the acne was particularly embarrassing as I’m a grown man. There was nothing I couldn’t do but things like meetings would leave me very self-conscious. ”

After searching online, Christopher came across YorkTest and decided to give food sensitivity testing a go to try and address the root cause of his symptoms.

That’s when he ordered the Premium Food Sensitivity Test, with his results indicating that his body was reacting to egg yolk, milk, sesame seed, flax seeds and yeast.

Within two weeks of removing his trigger foods Craig began to see his symptoms improve. When we asked Craig how he felt after removing these trigger foods, he said “100 times better.”

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

The process involves sending a finger-prick blood sample back to YorkTest. Craig then received his results within 7-days through the Wellness Hub, in an easy-to-read traffic light-based format.

Eliminating the trigger foods and sticking to his diet plan has helped clear Craig’s symptoms and enabled him to resume his normal life. When asked about the elimination process, Craig found it “very easy” and he also lost weight as a result.

Craig also had a positive experience with the nutritional consultation, ” I was told to cut out my trigger foods and reintroduce them slowly” and he thought the customer service team were “very helpful”.

When asked how life had changed since taking the test and how he would summarize his experience,  Craig concluded: “I improved dramatically. Just get the test done, you won’t regret it.”
