OUR OWN EXPERIENCE
We at OutsizeClothes.com have had food related health problems.
Both of us were suffering from allergic symptoms. Diane was suffering
from frequent bloatedness, severe fluid retention leading to increased
weight, tiredness, ( black rings under eyes ) eczema type skin flare-ups,
joint pains and occasional stomach cramps and diahorrea.
In my (Brian) case I had severe problems with phlegm and mucus.
Although I don't smoke, I'd wake up with a 'smoker's cough' and
have to spend several minutes of coughing and spitting. I was filling
2 handkerchiefs during the day, everyday, between phlegm, spits
In Nov.2006, following advice from a friend, Diane did the "foodscan"
Test for 113 foods. It's a simple prick-your-finger, to get a drop of blood,
test, so very easy to do. 2 weeks after sending away the drop of
blood sample her results came back showing severe allergies to Yeast,
Eggs, Blackcurrant and a mild allergy to Wheat gluten and Dairy.
Cutting out these products was very hard, especially for a bread
But the improvement was almost instant. No more joint pain, improved
sleep, increased energy and an end to all bowel trouble. The eczema
cleared up when she changed to an egg and yeast-free shampoo. York
give you 2 free telephone consultations with a nutritionist doctor
who advises on Diet alternatives, and these proved excellent. York
also now have recipe and cook books for those avoiding the most
common types of allergy triggering foods, which you can buy online.
In late Jan.07 I did the York
Test (following Diane's results). The results showed that I
was mildly allergic to Pork, and severely allergic to Dairy products.
I cut these from my diet and my symptoms have disappeared - cough,
phlegm, snots - the lot. You must stick with their recommendations to achieve
We both recommend the York foodscan Test to friends, and now we
see that York Labs have also tests for
Multiple Allergy , IBS, ( irritable bowel ), Homocysteine
( the most important predictor of Heart Attack risk ) and Liver
