urticaria and thyroid testimonial

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.

Conditions that we can treat include...


My session with Oliver Barnett was very interesting and informative and he told me how to build on my existing healthy diet, broadening what I ate and how I prepared it, and prescribed a course of herbs and a detox.
