In late 2014 aged 69 I was diagnosed with chronic urticaria, and sub-clinical hypothyroidism with benign goiter and high levels of thyroid antibodies. I was under the guidance of both a dermatologist and an endocrinologist but wanted to find a health professional to treat this with nutrition rather than medication.
From first meeting Oliver I liked his attention to detail, his professional knowledge and that he really listened and explained clearly. He gathered a detailed history, a food diary and suggested some relatively inexpensive tests which shed further light on what I was experiencing.
With Oliver’s support, taking recommended supplements and making dietary changes I have gradually recovered over the year, and lost half a stone having previously been quite bloated. The urticaria cleared up quickly on a low histamine diet as my gut healed. I no longer need to be as restrictive in terms of histamine in my diet though I eat healthily and will probably remain Gluten Free for life.
My thyroid antibody levels, once 40 x what they should be, are now `negative’ in my latest set of results taken by the `endo’ who said that I am well now and has signed me back to my GP without any prescription medication being necessary. I should add that I kept the endocrinologist informed about working with Oliver, he was happy with the approach and test results were shared..
I have no hesitation in recommending Oliver and the methods he uses. I count myself lucky to have found him.
