SIOBHAN’S STORY

In a 12-year battle with Eczema, Siobhan Doyle spent thousands of euros on conventional treatments but to no avail. When bleeding hands made even picking up her young children too painful, it was time to turn to food intolerance for a possible solution. Now, Siobhan’s eczema has all but gone away in a matter of weeks, and by discovering she can’t have Guinness (and chips), a simple test has made looking after children a painless experience.

SIOBHAN SAYS…

“Initially I thought my eczema was due to wearing surgical gloves at work but after tests, the results came back as negative. My hands, shoulders and tummy were very bad and the last straw came when my hands began to bleed. I found looking after my children difficult and I wasn’t sleeping very well.”

“By chance I saw something about food intolerance so I took a food intolerance test with nothing to lose. The results informed me that some of the food I was eating like Guinness and Chips were contributing to my problem. When I cut them out of my diet the eczema cleared up and it is amazing.

“I also cut out milk and my energy levels also improved where now I hop out of bed each morning. I now know exactly what is causing the skin problem because I lapsed last week and had some chips and guess what…the eczema came returned.

When I think of all the time I had this problem and how down I was I wish I had done something about it earlier. 12 years is a long time to live with any illness but I now know what is causing the symptoms. So long as I stay off the Guinness and Chips then I should be okay.”

THIS GIVES THE PATIENT THE COMPREHENSIVE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT TO CUT OUT, FOR HOW LONG, AND HOW TO COMBAT THE SYMPTOMS.
