Just to let you know that after the food allergy testing that you did for me, where we found that I had a possible allergy to wheat and gluten.
That this lead to further investigation which resulted in the diagnosis of coeliac disease.
Since cutting all wheat and gluten out of my diet, I have lost two stones in weight and feel really well. I had suffered for at least the last 10 years with bloating and tiredness, along with my weight increasing which caused many problems and was really distressing.
The test that you did clearly gave me the answers that I was looking for and I could not get this through my GP.
I cannot thank you enough and I would highly recommend you to anyone I know.

Just wanted to write and thank you. Since our appointment in May, where you diagnosed a yeast intolerance, I feel loads better – the bloating and nausea has stopped completely.
I am managing to resist wine and sugar, my two loves and have even lost half a stone. I look forward to a second appointment in September when my three months has finished. A work colleague of mine, is seeing you this weekend so I hope she sees the results that I have had.

Since seeing Donna 2.5 weeks ago I feel fantastic, although the initial shock of being told not to drink wine or beer or eat any of my favourite foods I was determined to take on board the advice from Donna. I have suffered with IBS for 7 years and for the past 6 months have suffered pain every day. Not now, I have listened to all the advice and taking Neem and Probiotics every day and have started to exercise and really enjoy the energy I have now and especially sleeping through the night. As with many other people I kept going to the doctors and no help was being given and felt as if I was wasting their time. I have managed to lose 9Ibs in 2.5 weeks and now looking forward to losing more weight and feeling fitter and healthier. A big thank you to Donna for her advice and friendliness during the consultation, I wish I had known about this 7 years ago.

Great results from following the wheat-free diet, I have had a complete cessation of my symptoms. Thanks for your help in this!
Mrs Cheung (Bath City)
I am taking the minerals you suggested once a day and staying away from Gluten and tomato products. I’ve also started using the Raw Gaia clay mask and am suprised, I don’t get any allergic reactions since using it. Thanks for that tip.
Mr Mabey (Bath, UK)
Comment: Excellent and informative session. I had been suffering for some time with a rash as well as periods of tiredness throughout the day.If only I’d had an Allergy Test sooner I would have known I was intolerant to Yeast and Wheat. No more white bread for me and a lifestyle food revamp, I am living a much better life without that rubbish in my diet! Your advice regarding the root causes of my long term suffering with Candida has brought about more of an improvement in my condition, than all of the many trips to my GP have in the years I have been going to him for preventative creams…I am hopeful full remission is on the cards, watch this space.
Ms James (Bristol, UK)
Comment: Thankyou for my consultation in Bristol. I had constant migraines and felt light headed and fatigued much of the time, especially around lunchtimes. Having the Allergy Test uncovered the root cause of the problem. I would never have guessed that not only were my blood sugar levels out of balance, but I was also a Celiac!! Since looking out for foods containing no Wheat or Gluten and cutting out on foods containing raw cane sugar, the results have been unpresidented. Thankyou so much.
Mr Cardoso (Bath CIty, UK)
Comment: I recently had a food allergy test with Donna Brown in Bath, and it has revealed 3 potential allergies for me: sugar, orange and yogurt. Having eliminated these 3 foods I just noticed today a big improvement already in the eczema I have in my face with no other additional treatment. I am now hopeful that my condition will completely clear. Many Thanks!
Adrian (Bath CIty, UK)
Comment: The test went really well. I have since my consultation, changed my vitamin intake and have noticed a difference in the level of my wellbeing. I never thought it would be after having an electronic probe rubbed over my index finger. Well done and keep up the good work.
Daureen (Bath City, UK)
Having recently had an intolerance test and finding I have an intolerance to wheat I have removed it from my diet. To my delight I have found that my stomach has settled down and is no longer squiffy!!
Instead of filled rolls/pastries from the bakers for lunch I have now made the effort to make a variety of salads (works out cheaper than buying sarnies and pastries) to have at lunch time and have felt so much better for doing so.
Well… I did slip slightly and whilst in France on holiday as I could not resist some wonderful pastries and breads – oops what a mistake – Thomas the Tank Engine returned and I felt so uncomfortable as a result!!
I now know what has been causing the bloating, uncomfortable feelings etc in the past.
It has taken a bit to adjust to a new eating habit but believe me it is worth it and I feel so much better for it. I have found more energy to do even more exercise and as a result the last time I checked had lost 1/2 a stone!!
It really is worth finding out what your body does and doesn’t like. It’s like trying to make a petrol engine run on diesel!!!

Just thought I would let you know my progress. I am feeling much better since cutting out wheat and have lost weight too. I wanted to say a big thankyou for all of your advice.
Karen (Bath City, UK)
Comment: I am pleased to say since the allergy consultation, I have noticed improvements in my general health. I had a yeast and sugar intolerance and was slightly deficient in a couple of vitamins and minerals and had a bizarre allergy towards candles. Your theory on the paraffin in candles seems to make sense and having cut wine out almost completely I’ve had no sinus problems since. I now have soda bread for breakfast and have found a reduced sugar jam which has been great. I’m also eating wholewheat pasta where possible, little fruit, usually apples and strawberries and no mushrooms. I have noticed a slight improvment in my digestion system but not sure if this is due to the vitamin products you recommended (all of which I am taking) or the change in the diet, probably a bit of both. All in all am very pleased I came to see you and found the consultation to be very beneficial and value for money.
Margaret (Bath City, UK)
The consultation was just as I hoped it would be. Donna was very efficient in sorting out an appointment which was as convenient as it could be for me. The results of the allergy testing made a lot of sense and were very helpful in giving me pointers as to how to proceed. The dietary advice was just what I needed and helped me to make sense of what could have been rather daunting.
Sarah (Bath City, UK)
I was very pleased with the consultation despite the fact that it came up that I am allergic to red wine! I found it very interesting and useful and I am now cutting out the red wine, cows cheese and yogurt and I feel better for it. The bloating that I was experiencing before has subsided too.
Sally (Bath City, UK)
I came to see you about six weeks ago. Just thought I would drop you a line to give you an update and to thank you for your help.
I have been on the new diet regime for five weeks now and I am feeling so much better in myself. My energy levels I am sure have improved, I wake up easier in the mornings too.
My stomach spasms, the original reason for the visit, are much much better, they have not completely stopped but I believe that if I continue, that they should stop totally.
I have lost about a stone in weight so far and I hope this continues,people have commented that my eyes and skin look so much brighter.
I have cut out the wheat and have also cut out the cows milk, dairy based chocolate, yoghurts and cows cheese. I eat the Alpro yogurts and sometimes goats cheese now. I am drinking plenty of water during the day (with a very small dash of squash) and I only drink decaf tea or coffee or herbal teas or ginger and honey drinks. I also am having plenty of fruit, veg and nuts. (Is this the same person I hear you asking yourself!!)
Thank you for the information you gave me on the ‘boils’, you are the first person to have known anything about this. I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and advice.
Helen (Bath City, UK)
Since seeing you on Monday I have given up wine and bread, I have been really good and have lost 2lbs which is marvelous. I am already feeling the benefits of giving up these two things and since reading more into the disease I am so focused now to give up yeast and wheat and have found that some of the bigger supermarkets have a huge range of Free From.
So thank you once again, and I will be back in touch in a couple of months to be retested by the dietx machine
