Our FOOD should be our MEDICINE and our MEDICINE our FOOD.

Caroline Sproule

I would like to thank you for curing virtually all my skin problems. Before I first came to see you last Autumn I had two expensive appointments with a dermatologist at a well known private hospital in the Midlands. My skin, particularly on my back and scalp, had become extremely dry and flaky. The dermatologist diagnosed seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis but told me that there is no real cure. He prescribed moisturising cream and a specialist shampoo which had no effect and basically told me I would just have to get used to the condition.

My wife suggested that I had nothing to lose by consulting you. I must admit to being skeptical and did not really see how my diet, which is good and has been largely unchanged for the last half century, could be responsible for the relatively sudden deterioration in my skin.

My first session with you was a revelation. You probed my medical history which included problems with ENT as a child followed by really bad acne leading to several years on a broad spectrum antibiotic.  You explained these antibiotics had killed off much of my natural defence system against the proliferation of candida albicans in my gut and this had spread and was largely responsible for my skin conditions

You also diagnosed an adverse reaction to many of my favourite food including cows’ cheese, bananas, most foodstuffs containing yeast (including bread and to my horror beer, lager and wine !) and I started taking regular doses of various pro biotics, vitamins and liver health tablets

Over the five months that I have been seeing you my skin has improved dramatically and is now virtually back to normal

Thank you so much. Conventional medicine has much to learn. Had I listened to the “specialist” I fear I would now be in an even worse  condition than when I first took his (expensive and useless)  advice

Please keep up your great work

I have been having IBS problems for over 10 years.  It has made my life miserable not knowing what to eat in case I had a reaction. The Doctors, over the years, have just treated the symptoms and never suggested there may be a root cause.  As I have family history, they treated it as something I had to live with and dosed me with prescription pills.

It got to a climax as I was violently ill after an Indian takeaway so thus seeked out Caroline at Bromsgrove Allergy and Nutrition Centre.

As soon as I discussed my symptoms, she said I was gluten intolerant and my organs were struggling to function properly and to digest the simplest of foods.  She placed me on a special diet and health supplements which has made the world of difference.  I have been for a series of appointments which has transformed my life and has been worth every single penny.  People around me were quite sceptical but the results have answered themselves.  I look forward to eating and drinking now and my symptoms have all pretty much cleared.  It was scary at first as I had to make a whole lifestyle change but I am really glad I did it.

Prior to seeing Caroline I had been suffering with my stomach for over a year and consequently I was struggling with anxiety issues because of it.

I was constantly tired, had low energy levels, I didn’t sleep well making me feel grumpy and unsociable. I had burning in my tummy all of the time, bloating and bowel issues.

I had been backwards and forwards to the doctors and had some very invasive procedures, and lots of medications, none of which lead to making me better.

A friend of mine recommended Caroline & I couldn’t be more grateful.

Caroline stripped my diet right back, which wasn’t easy to start with as there really wasn’t much I could eat, however after only a week I noticed a massive difference.  I was already sleeping better which improved my moods & my tummy was a lot more comfortable.

Gradually over my 5 sessions Caroline introduced more foods and supplements & my conditions continued to get better.

My anxiety levels are lower than they have been in a very long time, I’m healthier, slimmer and happier & would recommend Caroline to anyone!

I started seeing Caroline after my prescribed medication for acid reflux stopped working. I tried all the medication doctors could think of however nothing worked and in fact I got worse. I became extremely anxious and worried and simply did not know where to turn. My daughter found Caroline on the internet and made an appointment for me. She changed my diet quite radically to start with but slowly other foods were introduced back in and I did notice a difference after the first few weeks.

Caroline deduced that I had a gluten intolerance and a high level of candida in my stomach, however being 71 years old it would perhaps take a while for my liver to cleanse itself and the candida to reduce. I stuck to the diet and 9 months later my acid reflux has gone completely and I no longer visit the GP for my health problems – in fact it’s not only the acid reflux I feel a whole lot better generally in myself and I’m not anxious at all! The candida has completely gone as well.

I don’t know what I would have done if not for Caroline – she has really helped me and I can honestly say kinesiology really works!

I just wanted to formalize my heartfelt thanks to you for basically giving me my life back.

Back in April, when I first came to see you, I was at the lowest point I had ever been in my life. I was putting on weight for no apparent reason, was sluggish, listless & seemed to have lost control of my bowels. My bowels were so unpredictable, I started fearing ever going outside my front door, which is a little constraining for a UK Sales Manager! ‘Immediate Urgency’ had become a real & daily fear.

Following 2 years of Medical Specialist consultations and several ‘invasive’ investigations, no solution was offered or advised, I did not know where to turn. I had a recommendation from a friend which I followed up immediately and called the Bromsgrove Allergy & Nutrition Clinic. This was the best thing I have ever done. 

The first consultation I had with you seemed to be a series of lightbulb moments, the first initial impression I had was, ‘wow, this girl actually understands my problems’. The second moment was that after approx. 5 minutes, you had basically pinned down the root cause to probably being a Dairy Intolerance (which I had probably had since I was born) with associated digestive bacteria and liver blocking issues . I won’t pretend that the following dietary regime of the exclusion diet was easy, but motivation was there in terms of a weight loss of nearly a pound per day for the first month – total of 1 stone. Your diagnosis seemed to be perfectly accurate and the effects were fairly quick to manifest themselves, with 100% improvement in bowel activity week on week.

At the end of the 5 consultation program, I have lost more weight, my bowels are mostly under control, I have lots more energy and subsequently I am much more aware of which food groups I can tolerate and which I cannot which means that now I have a choice! As I said up front, you have given me my life back and whilst this may sound cheesy, this is totally accurate.

I would recommend anyone who has any kind of digestive, stomach or bowel complaint to come to you for advice. You are not only a professional of the highest order (I feel I can talk to you freely about anything!) but you are also a loving & caring human being. I cannot thank you enough for your concern, your advice and most importantly your help in guiding me to overcome the worst period of my life, I am & will remain eternally grateful, thank you.

Catherine B - Eczema on face (after)

Catherine was a young girl who had a very angry red eczema rash on her face and arms. It flared up easily depending on what she ate. She had been prone to eczema and asthma all of her life from childhood. Following treatment and her new diet her skin cleared up after 14 weeks.

‘I owe you so much, thank you for taking me on and helping get rid of my eczema! I could not have done it without your help and I am so grateful that you took me under your wing!’

May I take this opportunity of thanking you very much indeed for the diet you gave me that has eliminated my IBS. Also my catarrh levels have dropped to the point that they are no longer an impediment.

I had been taking tablets for IBS via NHS doctors for over ten years to varying degrees and also had even been told that my acute rhinitis was simply the effect of the climate on my system, which left me with either acceptance of these diagnoses or in fact seeking alternative treatment. Tablets, made from drugs, in general and at best, treat the symptoms by masking them. In the end they do not offer a cure.

However, I have to admire your confidence in offering me a solution at my first consultation. Thankfully, I am open-minded and also was determined to seek an holistic cure. I believe you have helped me cure IBS and cut right down my catarrh levels. By avoiding certain foods, by being determined to follow your suggestions as time passed, I have been able to get my CANDIDA levels down to normal and as above, to effect, the ever daily nuisance and disturbance of catarrh.

Your testing by KINESIOLOGY has shown, by the extent to which I have improved my health and well-being, that there must be great mileage in it. The herbal tablets you suggested too were indeed helpful.

I would recommend your services to anyone with related problems, as you have proved what you put into or indeed eliminate from diet, you benefit from. Thanks so much one again.

Esther came with tiredness, feeling very cold, low moods and generally sluggish. She displayed symptoms of low thyroid and gluten intolerance. She has since changed her diet and enjoying feeling more energy, although she still struggles with drinking more water!

This client, a 34 year old keen runner, came to us with a condition called ‘Reactive Arthritis’. He was prescribed anti inflammatory medication and strong painkillers to reduce pain and inflammation. However, two years on, he was still struggling with walking and was unable to compete in running competitions as he had done previously.

However, three months later after making changes to his diet and eating foods which suited him he was able to come off all medications without experiencing as much pain and the inflammation reduced dramatically. He has remained off the medications for three years and in 2010 ran the London Marathon.

I went to see Caroline on Tuesday 11th March 2014 with constant stomach cramps and I would like to report that I haven’t had a stomach cramp since Thursday 13th March! Life is great. I am keeping to the diet and everything is going very well. I didn’t start properly until I got home to Sussex on 12 th March and I have been amazed how things settled down so quickly. It has been just over a week now without gluten and my stomach isues have all but cleared up, itis great!

Thank you for all your help and advice and making my life”normal” again. Keep up the good work!
