The following comments are from Caroline Tyler's clients. They have been listed here as a testimonial to the large number of benefits people experience from having a Food Intolerance Test carried out.
SLEEP AND WEIGHT
"Caroline many many thanks from both my daughter and I for turning our health, sleeping patterns and weight around (for the better!) My daughter-in-law's mother went to you a couple of years ago. Having tried everything, including hospital testing - she's like a new person too!"
"I lost a stone and a half without doing anything other than cutting out the things that had shown up. Who would have thought that after all those years of battling my weight it would be as simple as that?"
"I cut out tomatoes and oranges as the test suggested and noticed the dryness and redness on my face and chest disappearing within a week. A few weeks later I cut out cows milk out of my diet as per your suggestion and it helped my psoriasis on my scalp so much my boyfriend couldn't believe the difference. I now find I can actually eat any of the foods above and I am not affected, as long as I eat in moderation. My colleagues can't believe how good my skin is looking and my boss has booked for a test next month with you!"
"Now I know what foods to avoid to have the most energy.
I hadn't realised that I felt so tired because of what I was eating."
"Further to my consultation with you in January I wanted to thank you for your help and advice. My symptoms have improved amazingly and I've never felt better. At our discussion, I told you changes to my diet normally only worked for a week or 2 max, hence I've left it so long to write to you. However, the advice you've given me is still working and I am hopeful this will continue in the longer term. Thanks again for all your help."
IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME
"I came to see you a few months back regarding my IBS, I wanted to thank you, since sticking to all the foods I can eat and changing my diet that you advised I have been great!!"
"I wanted to thank you for my dairy intolerance diagnosis back in March; my eczema has completely cleared up since cutting out dairy! I developed my eczema (which covered my face at one point) as an adult 3 years ago and GPs and dermatologists were useless in offering any help. Upon undertaking my own research I discovered yourself and since my diagnosis my skin has returned to normal and I no longer feel depressed at having to cover my arms and legs up all the time. I will also hopefully never have to see my face red and swollen with angry eczema patches and for that I thank you! You also helped me get rid of the small red cracks I had developed around 5 years ago at the corner of my mouth with a B12 supplement (again something doctors were unable to diagnose following many blood samples). I am so grateful for your help and I wanted you to know how you have made me happy again as I no longer hide indoors or behind long sleeved tops (which was a nightmare in the summer)."
"Further to my consultation with you I wanted to thank you for your help and advice. My constipation has improved amazingly and I've never felt better. At our discussion, I told you changes to my diet normally only worked for a week or 2 max, hence I've left it so long to write to you. However, the advice you've given me is still working and I am hopeful this will continue in the longer term. Thanks again for all your help."
"My itchiness on the skin has reduced so much with avoiding the things you mentioned."
IBS AND WEIGHT
"Going to the toilet on a regular basis now, I have had no bloating and generally feeling a lot better. I also lost 8 pounds so all good news."
BLOATING AND IBS
"I came to see you for an Intolerance test and I just wanted to say thank you. After following the advice you gave me and eliminating the foods and drinks that came up in the test my IBS has been cured! I’m also drinking the 2L of water a day. I’ve never been so regular in my whole life and the bloat is gone! It’s quite incredible what a difference it has made to me."
WEIGHT AND ENERGY
"I've lost a stone and eight pounds since I came to see you just by avoiding the foods that showed up and I don't have any pain any more. I feel so much better ... have so much more energy. I did test it out one day by having a lasagne and I was in pain all night so I now know what I need to avoid."
"My daughter has been to you too, as has her husband. They are doing so well. She was on long term medication for heartburn which she no longer needs. The doctor had said she would be taking it indefinitely, so she's absolutely delighted."
WEIGHT, ENERGY AND DEPRESSION
"My son came to see you last year and he is like new person. I can't tell you the difference it made to him. He has stuck to the advice you gave him and he looks great. He has lost lots of weight and has lots more energy. Even his body shape has changed! He also feels different emotionally and has been able to come off his medication."
"Since being to see you I have lost 2.5 stones and feel great!"
HEADACHES, WEIGHT AND GALLBLADDER ISSUES
"It's been 2 months since I came to see you and I can't begin to tell you how much better I feel. I haven't had a really bad headache since my appointment and I have had so much more energy and, another upside is, I've also lost quite a bit of weight. I would say I'm mainly over my chocoholic status and haven't had any for longer than I care to remember!
WEIGHT AND MOOD SWINGS
"I am officially entering my 6th week of cutting out the foods that I reacted to. I just wanted to say what a difference it has made, I came for weight loss reasons and I have lost a stone without really trying! I also feel that my moods have settled and I generally feel much better in myself. I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to go through everything with me."
COLD SYMPTOMS, LOW ENERGY, MOODS AND HEADACHES
"Thanks so much for our session six weeks ago. Then, I was suffering from a six-week long cold, low energy and mood. I also have chronic headaches. Our consultation gave me the push I needed to cut sugar right down to fruit only, and cut my dairy consumption by two thirds. I also gave up tomatoes at your suggestion. Result? Energy levels better than they have been for years and headaches considerably diminished. Will continue with the rest of your detox suggestions in the New Year. Happy to recommend you to anyone from now on who I think might benefit."
SNEEZING AND COLD SYMPTOMS
"Dear Caroline, it is now over six months since I consulted you at the end of October.
Having conducted appropriate tests your main recommendations were to cut dairy and sugar as much as possible, as well as tomatoes, and to do the same with tannin and caffeine.
So I immediately cut dairy and sugar by 75% approx. and have stuck to that. I also cut out tomatoes. Then in the New Year I cut my tea and coffee to one cup of each per day, sweetened with Manuka honey.
Results? Immediate : the cold symptoms and sneezing stopped within 36 hours. I also was weepy and emotional for a couple of days. I noticed after a few days that my energy levels seemed better.
So - I am very pleased indeed with the results following from our consultation and would happily recommend anyone to you. I found your professionalism, knowledge and kindness very inspiring and supportive of my own efforts to help myself. Thank you so much."
