Listed below is just some of the feedback that we have received from our clients.
The Marston Family
“Our family life has been transformed”, says Jo Marston whose builder husband Ryan and son Jay both suffered from food intolerance. “Jay was very aggressive at the age of four and had a lot of behavioural problems. Catherine diagnosed him as being intolerant to refined sugar so we took him off it and he became a completely different child. He’s six now and we’re starting to reintroduce some sugary products".
“My husband Ryan is a builder and was continually suffering from throat infections and fatigue. Sometimes he could hardly breathe. He’s a hundred per cent better after, on Catherine’s advice, he cut out mouldy foods. He’s had to stop bread, cheese,mushrooms amd marmite – all the things he loves – but it’s great to seem him able to get on with his work”.
Julie Bufton, regarding her son aged 7
“Joe at seven had continuous spots as if something was triggering it and we didn’t know what. The spots could appear on his legs, arms, a lot around the bum, and he was very embarrassed. Catherine tested him and it turned out he was intolerant to chicken. He actually had pet chickens, but it was chicken meat that was the problem. We gave it up for 6 weeks, the spots disappeared and after six weeks we reintroduced chicken on a once a week basis and we’ve never had any problems since. You just can’t believe that something like that caused it. He’s eight now and it’s taken so much stress out of our lives. We were on so many waiting lists to see consultants and dermatologists”.

“I was suffering from migraine and Catherine found that I was intolerant to corn. I cut out cornflakes which I was having every day for breakfast and a lot of things containing corn. I stopped eating cakes, glucose syrup, and a lot of surprising things, jam, sweets, biscuits, cakes. They all seem to have glucose syrup in them. I used to take Migril tablets on a regular basis and now I hardly suffer at all. It’s given me a lot more time to do things. I used to have to go to bed or just didn’t feel like doing things. I get a lot more done now. I wish I’d gone to see her a long time ago”.
"I was very sceptical to discover through Catherine's test that I am intolerant to potatoes. However, having now tested this theory I now know it to be true. It has meant that through no longer eating potatoes that I don't have to suffer from debilitating stomach cramps any more. And I haven't had a bag of chips or crisps in nearly two years".
"Having the results of Catherine's food intolerance test has resulted in my not having to put up with bouts of faintness, headaches, tiredness and nausea. I now have the information to be able to live a healthier life by better balancing my sugar intake".
Meggie Morgan, 15
I was diagnosed as being intolerant to all types of fish, which is unusual, and to oranges and almonds. Ironically I had been taking fish oil capsules to help me concentrate during my GCSE studies. If I hadn’t seen Catherine I would have had to go through the rest of my life having headaches and tiredness. It would have stopped me achieving all the things I want to in life. I have far fewer headaches and I’m not as tired as I was – despite the GCSEs!”.
"I was suffering terribly from congestion which made my hay fever so much worse", says Angela Hughes. "I was worried that I had developed a food allergy. I had no idea that I had an allergy to dust mites, which is what Catherine diagnosed."
"She found things that really helped me. I didn’t know for example that I should wash my bed linen at 60 C rather than the usual 40 C. I have also had to come off yoghurt and if I go back to it the congestion returns".
Angela says that within six to eight weeks of following Catherine’s advice she was able to breathe much more easily. As an outdoor person living in rural Montgomery, and county organiser of the National Gardens Scheme, she needs to be on form and to be able to breathe easily. And for that she is grateful to Catherine and her intolerance testing sessions.
