“I have always suffered with digestive problems, feeling below par most of the time. During the last seven years I have given up more and more foods (dairy, gluten, etc.) in the hope that I would feel better, but symptoms just got progressively worse. Visits to my GP and various tests gave no satisfactory answers.
Just over a year ago, I looked on the internet for Allergy Testing and came across Alma and The Amber Centre. I made an appointment and at my first visit Alma said I had a build up of toxicity, amongst other things. Within 4-5 months I was back eating all foods again with no adverse reactions. As I progressed on my treatment more toxicity surfaced, which Alma subsequently treated. I now feel the best that I have in years and can eat all foods with no adverse reactions. My quality of life has improved dramatically all thanks to Alma and The Amber Centre. Thank you!”
