Allergy, diet and weight loss help and exercise advice for those who need it
OUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH ALLERGIES
Both of us at plussizeclothes.co.uk have had what we now know were food allergy symptoms. Diane was suffering from frequent bloatedness, severe fluid retention leading to swelling and increased weight, tiredness, ( black rings under eyes ) eczema type skin flare-ups, joint pains and occasional cramps, bowel spasms and diahorrea.
In my case I had severe problems with phlegm and mucus. Although I don't smoke, I'd a 'smoker's cough' and would frequently spend several minutes of coughing and spitting. I was filling 2 handkerchiefs during the day, everyday.
In Nov.2006, following advice from a friend, Diane did the "foodscan" YORKTEST for 113 foods. It's a simple prick-your-finger to get a drop of blood test, so it's easy. 2 weeks after sending away the 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 lover.
But the improvement was nearly instant. No more joint pain, improved sleep, increased energy and an end to all bowel trouble. The eczema cleared when she changed to an egg and yeast-free shampoo. 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 keep improved health.
As it has really worked for us, we both recommend the York foodscan Test to friends.
