Every Friday night for as long as she could remember, Angie Jukes had tucked into a delicious Spaghetti Bolognese. However, after years of persistent and painful indigestion, Angie discovered that she was intolerant to it and that the traditional Italian dish was part of her ill health problems.
“It wasn’t like my indigestion was anything so serious that I had to take time off work, but I was worried it might be something more serious like ulcers or even cancer. I’d been seeing my GP on and off for five years and nothing really made it better despite taking the prescribed medication.
Eventually a friend suggested my problem might be down to the food I eat, so after a bit of research, I decided to take a food intolerance test. It’s one of those tests where you send away a sample of your blood, and when I got the results back I was amazed at how many foods had come up as being a problem. Of the 113 foods it tested for I was having reactions to nearly half of them. Mainly, I was advised to stay off dairy, lamb, wheat and beef.
Beef was something I was eating every Friday night in a Spaghetti Bolognese, so it all became clear and as soon as I began a new way of eating, my condition improved. I wasn’t feeling ill at work and my life really improved.
I no longer get that feeling as if my chest is on fire and I am burning up inside. It has taken a while to get used to eating a new diet but it’s well worth it. I no longer need to see a doctor and I’ve lost over 4 stone in weight. Going from a size 16 down to a 10 has caused havoc with my wardrobe, but it’s a nice problem to have.”
Angie took a first step Home-to-Lab food intolerance test from Yorktest Laboratories. The test offers a Positive/Negative Result from a small amount of Blood, which the customer sends off to the Yorktest Laboratory in the UK.
In Angie’s case, her results identified a Positive, so she upgraded to the second step, 113 Foodscan. Using the same blood sample, this test identified the actual foods causing her food intolerance and the degree of severity.
Part and Parcel of the service were two One-to-One telephone consultations with a BANT qualified nutritionist.
3 out of 4 people report getting better after taking a food intolerance test with Yorktest.
Yorktest Laboratories’ Foodscan is the only food intolerance test with Allergy UK backing and the only test in Europe to have a Gold Standard clinical trial to it’s name.
