Claire Davies, 32


Claire Davies, 32, had been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for around 5 years when she decided to try the YorkTest Food&DrinkScan programme.

In her day to day life she was experiencing reflux, IBS, bloating and a general feeling of tiredness with aches and pains.

In January 2014 she decided to take the test and was surprised to discover a reaction to dairy. Our Nutritional Therapist Sandra made sure Claire knew which foods she needed to remove from her diet.

Having to cut out milk and cheese was a challenge but within a month of doing so, Claire started to notice a real improvement;

“Reflux has improved a lot and I’ve cut down on my reflux tablet. My IBS is a lot better and I don’t get that bad bloated sicky feeling after a big meal out.”

Like most people trying to eliminate a problem food, Claire did experience the odd setback but it did help to reassure her that she had certainly identified the culprit!  

 “I ate dairy by accident and was up in the middle of the night with stomach cramps.”

Since taking the test, Claire’s quality of life has improved, giving her freedom to enjoy a more active social life:

“It’s been a great experience and very efficient. Sandra was very very helpful and it was nice to talk to someone who knows what they’re talking about. My symptoms are improved since the test and I have less relapses. I went on a girl’s weekend last weekend and wouldn’t have been able to do that before.”

YorkTest advise that you consult with your GP first if you are experiencing the types of symptoms mentioned in this testimonial.
