Arthritis Cure

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 of 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. 

Stomach Issues

I went to see Caroline OnTuesday 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,

Candida Albicans

I found Caroline by Google one night when I was really fed up with feeling ill. I have had problems with my skin since I was a teenager so was put on antibiotics and then the pill. I had constant viral infections and tonsillitis and in my 20′s I began having ear infections too, along with going through phases where I felt completely exhausted, light-headed and terrible bloating of the abdomen. The Doctors did blood tests but told me they couldn’t find anything wrong so I began to read up and look at food allergies. I did a dairy free and reduced wheat diet which really abated the symptoms for a while but then my skin problems and the bloating would come back and I couldn’t work out why. On top of this I had been having trouble sleeping for years and I felt really low. At my first appointment with Caroline she confirmed that I had a Candida level of 25 and had probably had it since I was 11 when I’d had a bad case of food poisoning. I could not believe that I had seen this lady once and she had found out what was wrong with me after so many years of feeling awful with no explanation. Caroline also told me that loads of other problems I’d been experiencing that I’d thought were all independent issues were caused by the Candida. For the first time in years, not only did everything all make sense, but I had hope of treating the cause of it all and getting better. I was also shocked that despite trying to eat healthily and avoiding certain foods, I was eating things that were causing me real problems that I would never have known about. The great thing about Caroline’s service is that everything is specifically tailored to you as an individual, and Caroline is so easy to talk to and so empathetic I actually used to really look forward to my upcoming appointments. Every month I was able to eat more and more food and I felt a real sense of achievement as my Candida levels dropped. Caroline tested me comprehensively to get an accurate picture of my body as a whole and treated me in accordance to make sure everything was in balance again, which is a truly great feeling!I am now Candida free and feeling the best I have felt in a long time and I have Caroline to thank for that.

Eczema
I can not thank you enough for how you have helped me with my eczema and in turn my alopecia. When I was first referred to you my skin was in a very bad way. As you will remember my face, arms, legs, ankles, front and back were covered in red itchy flaky skin which was disgusting. Also, my hair had bald patches of alopecia caused by stress….….I can remember that within the first 4 weeks of sticking to the diet you advised me and stopping all the medication from the doctors, there was a dramatic improvement….I think the biggest shock of all was how my hair had started to come back, even though you were curing my eczema. Well, you will be happy to know that I am completely eczema free and I have a full head of hair for the first time since I was 15..”.

Migraine

I went to Caroline at Bromsgrove Allergy Centre three years ago. As someone who had suffered with migraines and migraine type headaches for over 30 years, I was interested how Caroline could help me. After the testing, I was advised of all the foods which I was to avoid and those that I could have on a moderate basis.….Over the past three years I have not had one migraine or headache, which has made a tremendous difference to my life. I could not believe that after so many years of experiencing so much discomfort from headaches that it all came down to food intolerances!…

Thank you for all your advice and giving me back a life free from migraines..

Ulcerative Colitis
I confess to the thought of writing to thank you not long after you started treating me for my longstanding serious problem of ulcerative colitis. The improvement in my general health and well being was quickly apparent under your care. But in spite of this I did not put anything in writing…My reluctance was due in part never having done anything of the sort before as mentioned, but more so to my being in some measure sceptical of continued progressive improvement, due to many disappointments over ten years of suffering. I thank you and am deeply grateful to you for your months of care and successful
treatment. I start this year feeling better than I have done in years, feeling stronger, more energetic and with completely settled, comfortable bowel function.

Eczema
Caroline, not sure where to begin to say thank you. You’ve done so much to help me when no one else wanted to with my IBS…then Siena came along- after what felt like endless months of battling with my GP and Health Visitor about Siena’s constipation, which was so severe she screamed when she went to the toilet, and her severe eczema, again,
I turned to you for help. I was at my whit’s end and tearing my hair out hoping somebody would listen and you did. You helped Siena’s constipation and after a long battle with milks we sorted out her eczema. We are so very grateful for your time and compassion to help us and we are so glad we sorted her body out. A lot of time and patience but it was worth it!Thank you for all your help.

Infertility
Words cannot express how grateful we are for all of your help and advice over the last few months in relation to our health, diet and general well being. As you know IVF did not work for us but now we have conceived naturally and are expecting a baby boy in March. We both just wanted to say thank you so much and share this wonderful news with you as miracles really do happen!

Candida Albicans
I saw an article about Caroline’s work in a local paper and as I had a few problems with my diet I thought I would go and see her. I was suffering from various annoying and vague symptoms and was sensitive to wheat and cheese. She discovered I had a condition called Candida Albicans and treated this very efficiently. Glad to say I now feel much better and really can’t thank her enough. To anyone who is in doubt about going for some advice I’d say try it – you might have a lovely surprise.

IBS
In January 2009 I saw an article in the Birmingham mail about you and kinesiology. For nearly 12 months I had had IBS. I’d lost my confidence to go out in case I needed the toilet urgently and it was getting me down. So I made an appointment to see you. This was one of the best things I ever did. You ‘discovered’ which foods I was intolerant to and after 7 months following you recommended diet (which I am still following) I am now feeling great again and am able to go out when I want to. I’ve lost some weight and also, being diabetic my diabetes has improved so I have been able to reduce my insulin.

Acne

Bromsgrove Allergy and  Nutrition Centre helped give me my confidence back!! I have suffered on and off with acne since the age of 15, both on my face, back and chest. I hoped as I got older that it would get better but as I hit my twenties, it seemed to get worse. ( I am now 24). I have tried various treatments prescribed by  dermatologists over the years including oral mediactions and topical solutions, numerous contraception methods to regulate hormones and not to mention the usual over the counter spot treatments!

Lethargy

I heard about the Bromsgrove Allergy and Nutrition Centre through word of mouth, and that’s always the good recommendation. I went to Caroline because I had a lot of aches and pains, lethargy and tiredness but my main problem was I could just drop off instantly, anywhere at any time, even halfway through  a conversation.This worried me a great deal, it even happened once I was driving. When I saw Caroline we did several tests and found a lot of food and substances I was intolerant to. So by avoiding these and substituting other food, I feel so much better, my aches and pains have gone, I am certainly less tired and lethargic and my condition of just dropping off to sleep at
inconvenient times has gone, I feel I can drive with more confidence now. I would recommend anyone who is concerned for their wellbeing to visit the Bromsgrove Allergy and Nutrition Centre, after all you have nothing to lose and much to gain.

Behaviour Problems (toddler)

If you have children with “behaviour problems” could I recommend Caroline Sproule at the Bromsgrove Allergy & Nutrition Centre? She has done absolute wonders for 2 of my grandchildren. One grand-daughter in particular would almost definitely have a label of ADHD by now, and quite possibly Tourette’s syndrome. (Shouting out rude or inappropriate phrases at random) Every now and again she would go quite bonkers, laughing like a maniac, running about like a mad thing and eventually collapsing in tears. Turns out to be a milk allergy – on a totally dairy-free diet she not only shows normal behaviour but a gifted-level IQ.

Baby Reflux , asthma and eczema

I contacted Caroline when Callum was about 5 months old.She tested my son for many different foods and known allergens using kinesiology.It took many weeks, but gradually his body cleared itself of all the un-digested milk products in his system. His puffiness, eczema & red face all went away.

Yes, you do have to pay for Caroline’s knowledge, support, guidance and advice, but it is invaluable. She is a professional in her field. She doesn’t pacify you with what you want to hear, she tells it like it is and bases her advice on knowledge and experiences of others and herself. If I hadn’t sought out an alternative solution to his issues, Callum might have gotten sicker and sicker.

Caroline is amazing. Any health problems will be sorted professionally and easily. She has 15 years of experience and her knowledge is unprecedented. Highly recommend!!!

Psoriatic Arthritis

Alison was debilitated by a severe case of psoriatic arthritis. Following a new diet, regime  which included avoiding her particular food intolerances, she recovered her health and was free of the psoriasis and the pain and inflammation of the rheumatoid arthritis.

Migraines

I met Jody in Costa one afternoon. She told me she had been suffering with severe headaches and migraines since her teens. She had one child at that time and was often laid up in a dark room with a blinding migraine, which affected her  family life to quite a degree.

Following the testing I found that Jody displayed a number of food intolerances and was quite toxic and dehydrated. Since changing her diet she has only had one headache which went away very quickly, compared to her migraines which used to last up to three days. Here is Jody’s story:
