As a dedicated yoga teacher relying on flexibility, the painful arthritis Elizabeth Goodyear suffered with in her back, hands and toes was especially frustrating to deal with.
Increasing weight gain and constipation also added to her daily discomfort, impacting negatively on her quality of life.
“Apart from the obvious fatigue and discomfort, I found it harder and harder to teach Yoga, which I had being doing for many years, and which was my passion. Eventually I had to give it up.”
Wanting to take a closer look at her diet and the impact this made on her health, Elizabeth had tried a YorkTest Programme 20 years previously but had not acted upon the results at the time. Now experiencing conditions which were impacting badly on her wellbeing, she decided to revisit YorkTest
Her new test revealed a number of trigger foods but because of her previous experience with YorkTest, she wasn’t surprised when she discovered reactions to cows’ milk, gluten, yeast and almonds.
Determined to make the most of this information, Elizabeth booked her consultation with one of YorkTest’s Nutritional Therapists to ensure she fully understood how to make the necessary changes to optimise her diet. It didn’t take long for her to notice big improvements to her health:
“The improvement was almost instant. My constipation was sorted out. My arthritis eased somewhat. I went from having to take 2-3 pills a day to handle it to only taking 2-3 pills a week. The nutritional advice was very useful in helping me eliminate the problem foods in a thorough way.”
Following her new diet and avoiding her trigger foods – apart from the odd temptation from time to time – Elizabeth is seeing big changes, allowing her to enjoy an active life again.
“I have now taken up Pilates and Thai Chi…I feel really good, and people have been telling me I look good, too. The YorkTest has made a significant improvement in my sense of health and well-being.”
