Fatigue

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

Testimonial        December 2018 Dear Caroline,   I would like to express my thanks for all you have done for me since my first visit with you in June 2018.   For years I have constantly felt tired, bloated, had very little energy, and would often have palpitations.  Helping to run my own business has been demanding and I found it difficult to concentrate. I constantly felt ill with very little energy and every day was just one long battle to get through.   I started to develop regular chest infections and after hospital investigations I was given strong antibiotics and inhalers.   It was following a visit to your clinic with my granddaughter that you suggested I come for a consultation.   Your diagnosis was that I had a dairy/gluten intolerance and adrenal fatigue and to follow a very restrictive diet.  I always thought that I had a good diet of fruit and veg but I realised there was far more to understand.   With your advice and support, I am now starting to feel much better, able to achieve more and focus on what I am doing.  I do not know what state I would be in if I had not met you and cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me and my family.   Anne S

Testimonial                  December 2018   I first went to see Caroline three months ago, on the recommendation of my sister, with symptoms of bloating, tiredness and poor sleep patterns.   I was tested for numerous foods and deficiencies and subsequently followed a fairly restricted diet:  cutting out most grains, dairy products, pulses, sweeteners and some fruits.   Three months later I still need to avoid wheat/rye, cheese, pulses and some fruits but the bloating has disappeared, energy levels have risen and I am mostly sleeping a lot better and feel very well in myself.   Two added bonuses – I no longer feel stiff when getting up in the morning and I have lost over half a stone.   Thanks for your help in sorting out my diet and health !   Jane B

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!

Dear Caroline, 

Before I saw you, I was constantly ill and my attendance at school was awful as I kept being sent home with migraines. I constantly felt tired and I was always congested. It was like I had a constant cold and nothing could help. The doctors just kept giving me lots of antibiotics but they didn’t do anything. I felt really frustrated and helpless as I was constantly ill and couldn’t work out why.

However, when we came to see you, I was amazed it was all down to my diet. So I immediately started my new recommended diet and began taking supplements. On the first week, you told me what I could have and it was very limited; I could only eat fish and certain vegetables which was extremely difficult. But gradually, I was allowed to eat more of a variety of foods and now I can eat most things, but I still have to avoid dairy.

Now, all of my symptoms have vanished and I feel like a different person. I am energised, my attendance has improved dramatically, I have not had a single migraine and I am no longer continuously congested. Therefore, I would like to thank you very much for all of your help and advice.

From the moment I met Caroline I knew she would change my life. Her knowledge, care, sympathy, encouragement and support have been second to none. When I first went to Caroline I was very stressed and couldn’t cope with my symptoms any longer. I was constantly being fobbed off by GPs and I was frustrated and deflated. I was constantly battling bloating, IBS symptoms, exhaustion, weight issues, which were affecting me in all aspects of my life. Added to my problems were the diagnosis of an under active thyroid which left me completely lost. I first saw Caroline in February 2018 and I can safely say I am a different person in September to the person I was in February. Caroline immediately told me I had Candida overgrowth of around 25? And that I needed to trust her and do exactly what she instructed. She told me that I most likely had a dairy and gluten allergy, with cheese being a particular love of mine I was pretty devastated! The journey I have been on in improving my symptoms was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but needless to say, I saw pretty much instant results. I followed Caroline’s advice and avoided eating what seemed like all foods, took numerous supplements, completely cut gluten and dairy out of my diet and changed the way I ate, which in turn has changed the way I live. I have now reintroduced a lot of the foods I wasn’t able to handle to start with and I am no longer constantly worried about where the next toilet is, or if I could leave the house on time, and if I did, where could I stop if needed? Caroline has educated me in learning about what my body likes and doesn’t like and I am much more informed when making choices with my eating. The support Caroline has given me, in my opinion was completely priceless as it’s given me a normal life back. I can’t thank her enough and couldn’t recommend her highly enough to anyone needing help.

I went to see Caroline in December 2017, who was recommended by a work colleague. At the time I was suffering with severe IBS. I felt very lethargic all the time and was in constant discomfort with bloating, constipation and stomach pains. All these symptoms were making me feel very low and depressed. I had been to see the doctors on many occasions but to no avail. After my first consultation with Caroline, she found lots of problems with my diet. Caroline then performed a kinesiology test to see which foods I was intolerant to. To my surprise, there were lots of foods to which I was intolerant to that I was eating on a daily basis. Caroline organised a diet plan for me and after following my new diet plan strictly, I can honestly say that my life has changed. I feel amazing with more energy. I’m now having regular bowel movements. My skin and hair have benefitted from my new diet and overall, generally, feel more positive. I’d like to thank Caroline for all her patience and time.

Richard – 50 year old roofer My problems started around 18 months ago. I was out fishing when I had an insect bit that was quite nasty. I went to the doctors because after that bite, I felt really tired and my muscles ached. The doctor sent me for blood tests. They came back negative. My doctors said just take some vitamins. As time went by I got gradually worse until I was exhausted. After a couple of months, I went back to my doctor and he sent me for more blood tests which again came back negative. A month later I went back again and he finally gave me antibiotics. The antibiotics made me worse. I was tired all the time, my limbs felt like lead and I could not do ordinary day to day things. My life changed when I went to my cousin’s wedding. He looked at me and couldn’t believe how bad I looked. I told him my troubles and he had also had something similar to me. He told me about this amazing lady in Bromsgrove, Caroline Sproule, who had treated him and he said he had never felt better. He told me about what she did and it all sounded very interesting. Caroline checked me over and within an hour she had found out what was making me so ill. I was eating all the wrong foods for me. So I had to completely change my approach to my diet. It was tough to start with, but with Caroline’s help and guidance I am completed sorted now. I am full of energy and my body doesn’t ache. All this is thanks to Caroline who has turned my life around. Richard T May 2018

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.

I suffered with intense fatigue and muscle pains, aching and general feelings of not being alert, lack of motivation, etc. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have been diabetic Type One for 15 years.

I started seeing Caroline after initially making an appointment for my mom.  I subsequently made an appointment for myself as being diabetic, I had heard that a gluten intolerance could be a cause of diabetes. However, the issue was not knowing what to eat in its place.  Caroline did say that with my mom’s discovered gluten intolerance, it was a thing that is passed on in families.

Caroline altered my diet and we discovered things that I had been eating that were contributing to my health problems.  After seeing Caroline for 6 months and having a gluten-free diet, I have noticed a difference in my aches and pains, but more importantly I feel more alert and have better motivation than I did before. Interestingly though, I am having to cut back on my insulin as it seems that my body isn’t need the same amount injected as it did before.</em></strong>

Thanks to Caroline, my mom and I are feeling a lot better so I would recommend Caroline to anyone who wants to improve their health and perhaps get over ailments they have had for years !</em>rong>

My sinus had been uncomfortable for quite some time.  I was feeling bloated, run down and generally lethargic even though I had a healthy diet, was not overweight and exercised regularly.   When I saw an article written by Caroline regarding hay fever and allergies, I decided to make an appointment.

Caroline believed it was Candida and an intolerance to certain foods, so she put me on a yeast, sugar and dairy free diet.  Within a month I felt better, had more energy, no bloating and my sinus was no problem whatsoever.  A further two months, I felt even better!  I could breathe clearly, no bloating, no lethargy and skin and hair shiny and looking good.

As the food was reintroduced slowly, I returned to a diet not dissimilar to the one I had before, although I did not crave as much sugar and yeast products.  Caroline explained that I had an intolerance to dairy products so I now avoid milk, yoghurts and cheese although I do have a little butter on my toast.

Caroline is sensitive, caring and knowledgeable who never rushed the appointments and explained everything clearly and concisely.  I cannot recommend her enough.
