From Sarah , Dec 07, from
Karen and Tom (son 5 Yrs) from Great Gregories tested Nov 07:-
You were so friendly and put us at ease, explaining the process clearly at every step. The food allergy test was certainly in depth and Tom's skin has improved no end.
Thank you Deborah for your help.
Jacqui from Gidea Park, Tested Oct 07:-
I wanted to contact you as since I had the food allergy test with you, I have not had one single migraine and you don't know how grateful I am to you for this!!
It was extremely hard at the beginning to go without caffeine, (which was the main one that I had an intolerance with) I used to drink tea all the time and had a lot of Red Bull for work but I have not gone back on them and have not had a migraine since. I am still finding it hard at times but it has certainly been worth it, so thank you very much for your help and I would certainly recommend you to anyone who suffered like I did.
Thank you again.
Natalie from S.W.F Tested Zak aged 2 in April 07:-
Just a quick note to say thankyou for testing Zak .We were really pleased with the results. And have put him on a dairy free diet. Since doing this we have found his eczema has cleared completely. Thankyou for your kindness and patience, and would certainly consider allergy testing again.
Jenny from S.W.F Tested May 05:-
Before taking the allergy test I was a little sceptical about it because I had heard from others that allergy testing wasnít beneficial and not accurate. I took the test because I had a bad relationship to apples; this was noticed in my test which reassured me. Deborah not just helped with Allergies but also helped me with advice on nutrition that I continue to follow to this day; I would definitely recommend going to see Deborah as it has helped me a lot.
Tracey from Danbury Essex July 08 :-
I cut out all bread pasta mushrooms etc for at least 3/4 weeks and felt really well no thrush, then I have been away for a week and lived on pasta and bread and its back with vengeance! So it does prove to me know that I must cut it out altogether to avoid this suffering. Thanks for your time contacting me.
Gillian from Shenfield in Essex Tested July 08 :-
Deborah helped me
to determine what could be causing my extreme
tiredness and headaches. By eliminating the foods i
was sensitive too and drinking minimum 2 litres of
water daily and taking 2 supplements advised by her,
i very quickly felt much, much better. Have barely
had any headaches and my energy levels are back to
full strength. Thanks Deb !
Dawn from Cold Norton. Essex. Tested 18/11/08:-
The whole process was simple and enjoyable. Deborah is so friendly and knowledgeable about diet and how food intolerance can effect the body. Really glad I took the time to discover what works for me.
Jessica from Basildon Essex, tested in Nov 08
Thank you so much for the test! I made it through the 1 month period without eating anything with yeast or MSG in it, i even made it through christmas! But now that i know yeast is the thing causing my problems i now have clear skin, no more tummy aches or anything like that, thank you again, it has made my health problems disappear!
Had to tell you how pleased I am that I came to you for allergy testing on 09/06/2009 after suffering with IBS symptoms for nearly two years.
I quickly contacted you for an appointment after receiving a recommendation from another of your satisfied customers.
I now have my life back and can go out in the mornings without worrying about embarrassing stomach cramps and wind that resulted in diarrhoea attacks that would strike at any time. Since finding that caffeine was my enemy, I now drink Redbush tea and avoid chocolate, which has not been so difficult as the craving has subsided now that I know what will happen if I weaken. I have never been a coffee drinker.
I would say that my problem is 90% improved and will now try the fos-a-dophilius tablets that you have recommended to hopefully improve my digestive system to 100%.
Thank you so much for your patient, understanding manner. I wish I had known about your allergy testing service sooner.
Shirley - Essex - Tested June 09
I have had great success following the test. My trigger foods were tomatoes, onions, caffeine, peanuts, orange and rapeseed oil.
Straight after the test I cut out everything on the list and within a couple of weeks I noticed a huge difference in my skin.
Because I was getting married eight weeks after the test, I decided not to introduce anything back in until after the wedding.
Then it was Christmas, New Year and a few birthdays so although I tried to avoid those foods as much as possible there are certain things I have eaten. I notice that my skin flares up a little after having tomatoes, onions and chocolate but no where near as much as before.
I am planning to now cut them all out again and introduce each item intensively for a week at a time to identify which give me the most problems. All in all though I am very happy with the results so thank you very much, itís made a huge difference to me!
Can not thank you enough. I spent 14 months trying to find out why i felt so unwell, and trips to my GP and then to a specialist proved to be useless. The final straw was being told to come off Gluten which i did for 5 weeks, I just seemed to get worse.
After researching on line I found your website and decided to arrange an appointment.
Thank goodness i did, as finding out i am lactose intolerant has changed me. I haven't felt so well in such a long time.
Thank you once again and i will keep on recommending you to others with no hesitation
Theodora From Braintree, Essex Tested Nov 2009
Vicky from Wickford, Essex Tested May 2010:-
I completely cut tomatoes out for 4 weeks & felt so much better. No more running to the bathroom feeling sick, no more bloated stomach or cramps; I canít believe the difference! After the 4 weeks I added a few tomato based things back into my diet Ė lasagne, spaghetti bolognaise etc and ended up having tomato based dinners 3 meals in a row & within half an hour of eating the third meal my stomach started feeling uncomfortable and aching. Nowhere near as bad as before, but a mild form of what was happening regularly before I cut the tomatoes out. Over the last couple of weeks I have limited myself to 2 tomato based meals a week and have felt fine. I would have never have thought it could have been tomatoes that was causing me the problems so thank you so much for making me feel so much better and having more energy every single day!
Lynne & Paige from Southend (mother and daughter) June 2012
You did an allergy test on my daughter back in June.
I just wanted to give you an update on how she is doing. You found she was allergic to orange and since then I have kept her off orange and she has improved so much. within a few days her eczema started to ease and within a few weeks her skin was normal. It has made such a difference to her life, she hasn't used steroid cream since we visited you and her skin has been amazing. You were the only one willing to give her a chance with the test as she wasn't quite 3 years old and I can't thank you enough for helping. I have been using the fish oil and aloe vera as you suggested too.
If anyone mentions allergy testing I recommend you because I am truly grateful for your help,you have made a difference to my daughters health and life. Thank you,
Sam from Canvey Island, Essex (Nov 2012)
I just wanted to give you an update as to how I am getting on.The first week I had really bad headaches, I think it was the lack of caffeine, but since then everything has settled down. I still get the occasional headache but can now determine whether they are proper headaches or just dehydration. To be honest I am not drinking as much water as you suggested but am managing 2 Ĺ pints at day and am slowly increasing it.
I am also finding that even though I am still getting up in the night, I am able to go back to sleep a lot quicker. Giving up chocolate has been really hard, (worse than giving up cigarettes) I even joked to my husband that I might start again so at least I could have something every time I needed chocolate.......I am now able to eat ice cream (woohoo!!) and fish is still a little bit of a problem but nowhere near as bad as it was and my tummy has totally settled down, no more bloating and am even feeling a bit more confident about eating out. I am even going to try a milkshake in Vegas but will stay away from the coffee and chocolate ones though !!
I have sung your praises to my friends so hopefully you may get a couple more bookings
Thank you for giving me my life back !!
Liz from South Woodham Ferrers, Essex Tested in November 2012:-
Kerry, tested in Nov 2013
Royston and I came and saw you a month or so ago and your tips were brilliant! Thank you so much.
I now take golden linseed everyday (which is a complete lifesaver) and Royston is now on decaff and no looking back! We both feel so much better for it too.
We have passed on your details to many people that have asked us who we saw and so I hope that you will get an influx of customers in the New Year.
Frances from Hockley, Essex, Tested in Oct
Good morning Deborah,
1 week on from your testing, I can confirm you are amazing! No weeing in the night, sleep so much better so much so was up early Sunday as I had slept right through.
I think my skin has improved already, however still flushing but happy so far.
Your right I have got used to red bush already and really donít find it too bad.
Bowels are a little loose but I think that is the detoxing.
Onwards and upwards.
Well I have completed the 4 weeks cold turkey
and can not believe I have not got up once in the night for the loo. I have got
so used to the Red Bush and the Caffeine Free coffee donít think I could go back
now. The hardest thing is to remember to have one in my bag as not many cafes
etc sell it.
I have decided not to reintroduce any of the caffeine products!
Hannah from Maldon - Tested in June 2016:-
Hiya, I came for an allergy test around a month ago now, it came back I was allergic to tomatoes and also had a zinc deficiency, I was always complaining I was extremely tired so much so I was nearly falling asleep at my desk at work! I've been taking zinc supplements since you told me and have really felt the difference in myself already! I'm a lot less tired and have so much more energy now, I've also really noticed a difference in my acne which is another massive plus! As far as the tomato allergy goes my stomach is a lot better I'm in a lot less pain and using the toilet a lot less now! You never realise how tomato based your diet is until you completely stop eating them! Just want to say a massive thankyou you are so helpful and I'm so happy I'm a lot less tired now as it was really getting me down as I could be very irritable! Thankyou :)
