Linda Perkins Nutrition and Massage
Hi Linda, following my appointment with you I have cut out all the foods I tested intolerant to, and I also stopped taking my inhalers, antihistamines and lansoprazole. The first few days I did feel quite unwell I coughed more than ever, had headaches and generally felt awful, after a week I felt 100% better and totally stopped coughing and my blocked nose had cleared…. I feel so much better, so nice to be cough free after so long.
Jo - August 2018
Just thought I would send you an email re my first week.. all good so far it’s been a challenge changing certain foods but I’m getting used to it.... Tummy pains have stopped and my body seems to have deflated a bit; I’m only going to the toilet twice a day instead of 7 and I’ve lost 4lbs so far so all positive and heading in the right direction.
Kelly - July 2018
Just a quick email to let you know since my appointment with you I have followed your recommendations. It is nearly a month later and already my skin and stomach have greatly improved. I’ve been telling everyone and highly recommend a visit with you. Thank you very much for your help.
Tracey -May 2018
The advice you gave has been brilliant, to the point that we have been able to reduce her asthma medication, in fact she hasn’t had any signs of asthma. If she introduces the foods that she had a reaction to in the Vega Test she can feel the difference ... so she is trying to avoid those things because of the difference she feels when she doesn’t have them.
Sue - April 2018
I am really well.... your recommendations and supplements were brilliant thank you, the rash has gone and I’m feeling much better in myself. Thank you for all your help, I really appreciate it.
Megan - April 2018
Since seeing you 8 weeks ago I generally feel much healthier, do not suffer from headaches and lost approx 1.25 stone.
Laurence - March 2018
I have lost about 8Ibs in weight and the swelling has reduced, only really happening at the end of the day and nowhere near as bad as it was before. Thank you so much for your help.
Sarah - March 2018
I've lost a few pounds in weight and heart burn has all but disappeared now. My problem of excessive flatulence has had a major change and so much better.
Sally - Feb 2018
I have cut out most of what you recommended....that’s helped a lot and my stomach has stopped bloating so coming to see you was very helpful. Thank you!
Jodie - Feb 2018
My stomach problems seem to have resolved themselves since taking the supplements that you recommended. Thank you for your help. If I have any further problems I will contact you again.
Robert - Jan 2017
I’m feeling so much better already and starting to lose weight which is a bonus! I’ve only had 1 migraine since I’ve seen you which is a massive improvement from 1 - 2 a week! Hope you're well and thank you for changing my life!
Tom - Jan 2018
Supplements and diet have really helped, haven't felt anywhere near so tired or so many head aches. On the whole I am feeling much better thank you very much.
Wendy - October 2017
I have long had a bad diet that included too many bad foods and not enough good ones. Over recent years my health had dipped due to this and doctors didn’t really offer any support or advice just [vitamin] supplements so I decided to seek professional help to turn my diet around and make a permanent change.
I sought out Linda as I had mutual friends that had been to her and I had seen their amazing transformations, I knew it wouldn’t be easy but that it would be worth it.
The first week, which involved cutting out so much of what I lived on (sugar, sugar, sugar) left me feeling continuously awful, dizzy and with a permanent headache, but I was supported by Linda and by my daughter who had already completed Linda's program and I can honestly say I wouldn’t have got through the first week without them!
Soon as week 2 started it was like a cloud had lifted. I felt lighter internally and felt happier in myself, my spring in my step was back and I was smiling again. I hadn’t gone to Linda for my weight but was overweight and a nice bonus to the program was steady weight loss which continues still today.
It will be a life long journey for me introducing good foods bit by bit but my diet is already a complete 180 from what it was and I continue to feel happier and have more energy on a daily basis which has allowed me to get back to enjoying things that had become a struggle due to feeling so tired before.
When hungry my body now craves juices and good foods instead of crisps and chocolate and on the odd occasion I've strayed and had a ‘naughty treat’ it hasn’t been a treat at all as it hasn’t tasted nice like I remembered it tasting and has left my energy levels struggling and my head fuzzy, this is making the life change much easier to stick to!
So yes I recommend Linda Perkins if you are seeking health, weight loss or positive mental changes in your life, that first week can be a killer but once you’ve done that you wont look back!
Nina - September 2017
Since cutting out the four ingredients you recommended (my daughter) has had no abdominal pain or migraines. We are so pleased. She has also reported that her tummy does not hurt on a daily basis any more – she’d suffered so long with it that she did not even realise it was hurting (if that makes sense). Thanks again for your help. I’ve recommended you to several people.
Diane - Aug 2017
Following your advice last year... this has significantly reduced the bloating/ uncomfortable feelings that I was suffering from. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help, and I have recommended your service to friends and family.
Lindsay - June 2017
There has been significant improvements in my well being...(since the appointment)
Richard - June 2017
I suffered for a long time with worsening fatigue, stomach upsets, headaches, weight gain, sugar cravings and brain fog. My doctor was not able to help so I went to Linda for a food intolerance test. I found out I had food intolerances and a candida infection! The good effects started quite quickly but after 4 months following Linda's advice I now sleep, don't have any headaches, my stomach is settled, my sugar cravings are under control and I think clearly. In addition I've lost 1 1/2 stone and still counting! Linda's expertise and ongoing support has been absolutely invaluable to helping me regain my health and wellbeing.
Ryfka - March 2017
I was recommended to visit Linda in January of this year. I was generally unwell especially with joint and digestive problems. Four months later I feel so much better both mentally and physically. Linda is good at combining her caring nature with her extensive knowledge of her subject. I now feel positive about my health for the future.
At first the restrictions on my diet were very hard to come to terms with, but with Linda’s support and the positive results and benefits that soon occur you realise that it’s all worth it. Good health is so very fundamentally important to us all.
Colin - May 2017
I've been meaning to email you to say thank you so much for all your help, I actually feel more me than I have felt in years so thank you so much, everything seems to be working.
Michelle - May 2017
It's only been a week but I already feel so much better. I am sleeping much better, I have more energy, I don't feel bloated , my rash has improved slightly and considering it's early days I am very hopeful that it will continue to get better.
Keely - April 2017
I feel like diet and weight has always been an issue for me since i was a young girl. I have tried the "one size fits all" diets like Weightwatchers and Slimming world and got fed up with weighing food and tracking points/syns. I have been suffering with irregular cycles, bloating, burning feet, mood swings, tiredness, low energy...the list goes on. I am getting married in early 2017 and i decided that i need to take a different approach to dieting, so i booked in to see Linda in October 2016.
Linda carried out Vega testing on me and found that i had candida and various food intolerance's and with this prescribed me a diet plan that would completely change my relationship with food. I was given food lists, supplements and recipes to help kick start my 3 month plan.
I have just completed 2 of the 3 months plan and can honestly say i have never felt better. I am free from Candida and have lost 19lbs!! I have stacks more energy and feel so much more positive in myself. I am no longer bloated and my cycles seem to have returned to normal..long may it continue. I have also got rid of my burning feet, which is believed to be linked to food intolerance. All of the above proves that "we are what we eat" and fad diets do not work. I have a completely different way of looking at food and plan to continue the plan for the foreseeable future.
Linda has been a great support throughout this process and i plan to go back to see her in the new year.
Naomi - Dec 2016
My Eczema has now cleared up as a result of your advice and I've hardly had any Hayfever at all this year!!
Janice - Sep 2016
...just thought I would update you - I'm feeling really well - better than I have in years...
Many thanks to you Linda I really appreciate your advice and support.
Rebecca - August 2016
Hi Linda...I have been cough free for more than three months and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your valuable service; I followed your initial recommendations and have been rewarded by a better healthy life. Just to show my appreciation.
Patricia - August 2016
All I can say is WOW!! I have been suffering for a long time with Migraines, ear trouble, tummy trouble, pmt, weight gain, low energy, exhausted all the time and general poor health that I decided enough was enough and I booked to see Linda in April 2016. At my first appointment I had Vega testing, a list of many intolerances and Candida came up. That was the first day of a new life for me, a bag of supplements, food lists and recipes later my life changed. The detox first week was hard as I was very poorly but with the support of Linda my first month flew by and my health changed for the better. I am now candida free, one and a half stone lighter and in my last month of the three month treatment plan. New diet, new me and no migraines!! I have new found energy levels I haven’t had for years, my health is the best it has been for such a long time and all the ailments I had have gone!!
I want to thank Linda with all my heart, she is a miracle worker and needs to be recognised for the amazing work she does. I have recommended Linda to many people and I know she will change their lives too.
Sarah - July 2016
So, basically my thyroid (test) came back normal. I am so very happy about that (and thank you, thank you, thank you, Linda!)….. I'm so grateful for your help and expertise in turning my health around and am truly ready to continue making improvements.
Julie – May 2016
Just though I would let you know that I did get tested for Vitamin D deficiency. My levels were really low.
I have been avoiding foods as recommended and taking the supplements and I have noticed a marked improvement in the way my tummy has been. …. I definitely know what I need to avoid!
Your advice has been brilliant.
Jenny – May 2016
My insides feel much better now I have been eating healthy food, it feels calm and quiet inside! I will certainly eat more healthier from now on and I do know more about nutrition! So, thank you very much Linda.
Vivien - May 2016
So we are basically a month in and I feel so much better, I have slipped a couple of times and it really affects me but this is the main fact – I have not changed anything in my life stuff, I am still drinking, not calorie counting or do any more exercise but since we met, I have lost 5.4kg!!! I am blown away by it and how good I feel.
Stuart - May 2016
Thank you so much Linda. Its so good to know that with your excellent advice and a little effort on my part, I am making a good recovery and on the road to good health again.
Shelagh - May 2016
My 16 month old baby has been great! His mood has changed dramatically! He is a lot happier and less clingy to me. He poos about 3-5 times a day and doesn't have to force himself and doesn't cry when he goes!
Thank you so so much, I will highly recommend you to anyone I meet!
Nadine - April 2016
I'm being pretty strict with my diet and another half stone has come off. I'm eating when I want to, three meals a day and one or two small snacks if I feel the need, but I must admit that when I'm not eating the goods that trigger my body in a bad way then I'm just not so hungry. It's a fascinating thing to witness.
Julie - February 2016
I can't believe how much of a difference a healthy digestive system makes! Linda has helped me so much and it's made such an improvement to my happiness, health and well-being.
Beth – January 2016
My experience with Linda Perkins was an eye opener to the foods I shouldn't be eating. She gave me a list of things I should and shouldn't be eating; she also sent over recipes which really helped me go Candida free.
Charlotte - January 2016
Thank you so much for all the information, I thought I would give you a quick update........ I am sticking to the plan and avoiding these food and so far have felt so much better and have not suffered with my stomach... and feeling a lot better in myself.
Molly - Dec 2015
My IBS is so much better now. Thank you for all your help, I feel so much better.
Helen - July 2015
I have been managing to completely cut out all the foods and my skin has had a radical change. In fact on one occasion I was misinformed at a restaurant of the ingredients and my skin reacted immediately which certainly supports the theory....... Thank you for your help.
Joanne - April 2015
Just wanted to let you know how things are going with me . . . . my bowel function is much improved - I'm really pleased! My flushes/sweats are reduced and I am sleeping much better- even managing without my herbal sleeping tablets.
I really can't thank you enough.
Chris - April 2015
Just thought I would give you an update on me . . . My whole stomach feels different, my bowels are working even better than before . . .I have had no stomach cramps, gurgling or wind since . . . Sleeping like a log!
Justine – March 2015
I visited Linda on recommendation from a friend as I was tired and lacking energy most of the time. I also had tonsil stones that had been troubling me for some time (I was due to have a tonsillectomy as this was the only ‘cure’ the NHS could offer me. I cancelled the operation and learned to live with the discomfort of the tonsil stones).
After the Vega test I was shocked to find I was intolerant to 23 different things and Linda believed my problem was due to Candida.
Linda suggested a 3 month Candida diet and supplement programme to cure the Candida. I did find the first month quite hard but Linda supported me all the way and gave lots of food suggestions and recipes, which saw me through to the end of the second month.
I have again seen Linda today and I am so happy that the Candida is gone and I am now only intolerant to only 4 things, not at all hard to live with. I feel so much better, and the amazing thing is the tonsil stones have gone. Thank you Linda for your advice, support and encouragement.
I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who wishes to look at ways to improve their overall health through nutrition. It’s amazing what you can do with a little help. You are what you eat !
Thank you again Linda.
Ann – Feb 2015
I’m feeling better and my skin condition has certainly improved in great deal. Although difficult at first, I have lost that sugar craving . . . . in general I feel really healthy with more energy. It goes without saying that I couldn't have done this without your guidance.
Doug - Feb 2015
Linda’s lymphatic drainage treatments are brilliant and leave you feeling relaxed, detoxed and healthy! Highly recommended.
Elizabeth – Jan 2015
People have been commenting on how good my skin looks and it's brilliant to feel so well. Thank you!
Laura - Dec 2014
I just wanted to give you a quick update and thank you lots! No tummy aches, no bloatedness and so much happier!! I have given your name to many people so I hope you get some people contacting you soon.
Sophie - August 2014
After feeling ill for many months and constantly backwards and forwards to the doctor who didn't know what was wrong with me, I found Linda who has been amazing. On my first appointment Linda tested me and I was so surprised at how many food intolerances I had! I then follow a 3 month anti-candida diet which meant cutting out so many foods which I loved but I knew I had to do this in order to feel better. Linda supported me throughout and recommended new food alternatives and lots of yummy recipes. I am now free of stomach aches, tiredness, pins and needles, headaches, mouth ulcers and much more thank you so much, I have recommended you too lots of people.
Hayley – August 2014
I have just walked and walked in Berlin in sweltering heat and barely had any pain. All thanks to you and your fantastic advice.
Sue - July 2014
When I visited Linda, I was tired, thirsty and lacking energy most of the time and had a skin rash. Following the testing I was so surprised at the number of foods I was intolerant to. However Linda made it easy to follow a 3 month anti-candida diet, supporting me all the way by introducing new food alternatives, delicious recipes, great advice and information. The treatment certainly did the trick! After the 2nd month I felt great, rash gone, more energy and no more bouts of tiredness! :-) Thank you so much Linda.
I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who wishes look at ways to improve their overall health and well-being through nutrition.
Anna - June 2014
Hi Linda, I’ve recommended you to many people and urged them to contact you.....As for me? I'm so much better, my stomach has stopped griping. All is good.....Many thanks again.
Rosemary - May 2014
I can safely say that following your recommendations makes a huge difference to my health and wellbeing.... My angry spots have cleared up and I am bloated far less frequently. I will no doubt come back and see you for an updated check as it makes such a difference.
Rachel - April 2014
I found the consultation and the information you have provided very helpful.
Thanks again for your help, I look forward to feeling the benefits soon!
Tom - March 2014
I had my first appointment in November 2013 and it was suggested that I follow the Candida Diet. I was dubious about embarking on it as it meant a complete change of diet for me and cutting out things that I really enjoy, but I had to deal with my digestive concerns. I started it after Christmas and I have felt much better as a result. Linda has been very supportive throughout my treatment and has always been at the end of the phone when I have had any queries! I am now nearing the end of my treatment and feel that I am able to continue with the dietary changes that I have made as I have seen the benefits and feel that the improvements I have experienced are worth continuing for! Thank you for your continued support Linda!!
Helen - March 2014
I have been meaning to email you since I came to you. I feel so much better, I have come off my drug medication.
Thank you again.
Hannah - February 2014
I started seeing Linda Perkins in August 2013 to seek help with both dietary and general health problems I’d been suffering for over 10 years from many symptoms including bloating, lethargy, tiredness, low energy levels and headaches among many others! In short I couldn't remember a time when I last felt well or had any energy.
I went to see Linda who diagnosed that I was suffering from Candida. Linda put me on a three-month treatment plan and after just one month of following Linda’s advice the changes I felt to not just my dietary but overall health were amazing. I’m now two and a half months down the line and the improvement to my life is absolutely remarkable.
I would recommend Linda’s services to anyone!! Thanks Linda for improving my life!!
Robyn - October 2013
Linda has been great in sorting out dietary issues I have been having - her email support, ability to fit me in when I need and changes she recommended for me have helped more that I initially thought was possible when I made my first appointment. Definitely recommend an appointment and haven't looked back since my first visit!
Nikki - October 2013
Though reasonably fit and healthy I suffered for many years with Hay Fever, rhinitis and many other sinus related allergies. Over the years I have used various medications, acupuncture and other facial massage treatment to ease the symptoms, while free for a few weeks the symptoms returned very quickly. I was also prone to having very loud tummy noises, which proved quite embarrassing.
After starting on a plan devised by Linda Perkins I can now say I am free of sinus related problems and have my sense of smell back. After a few months following the eating plan and taking the vitamins prescribed for me I am now clear of candida and am now able to eat foods which previously caused me much harm and affected my digestive system as well as my sinuses. My diet has changed and while I can now tolerate more foods I don't feel the need to eat as much as I did previously. I will be sticking to more organic foods which do not have the additives that can possibly harm my body.
Pat - August 2013
A massive thank you to Linda for all her help and support over the last few months. I followed all the dietary changes she recommended and had amazing results to my digestive system and general health overall. It was quite a tough process but Linda is extremely supportive offering advice and recipes and always available whenever you have any questions. I have lost weight, have lots of energy and will be recommending her to all my friends and family.
Angela – July 2013
Finding you on "good old google" has literally been life changing and I’m still on the road to recovery.... I’m thinking by the time I am 40 I’ll be feeling more like a 20 year old! You have achieved more than any other health care professional either in the medical profession or from the holistic side and for that I’m eternally grateful.
I really can’t recommend you highly enough and wish some of my friends would give it a go!
Jean - June 2013 (long term sufferer of ME/CFS)
When I first went to see Linda I will freely admit I was quite sceptical about the whole process, but I needn’t have worried at all. Linda confirm what I felt I had (without telling her), that I had a candida problem in the stomach which was causing all sorts of tummy troubles, not to mention me gaining a huge amount of weight. After sticking to various restrictions on certain foods, after 2 months I showed only intolerance to a couple which was amazing. It wasn’t easy at all (and my husband would tell you I have no self-control!), but if you’re willing to put in the effort, you will reap the rewards. I’ve carefully reintroduced all foods now but at a reduced level and I know when I do eat wheat I can expect a few bloating issues. So I’d like to thank Linda for clearing my tummy problems and helping lose 2 stone (!!) which was a very pleasant side effect!!!’
Kate – June 2013
I thought I would give you a quick update after I saw you some weeks ago. My recent total cholesterol test was 4.4 (max is 5.0) versus 6.4 previously, so ... diet changes have worked...... Blood pressure is also back in range. I have lost 3kg so far . . .
Ian - June 2013
.... I have been getting along a lot better since eliminating [foods as suggested]. Lost 10 pounds in eight weeks, better digestion, etc. More energy, better sleep.
Keith - May 2013
I just want to thank you. I can’t tell you how much my life is changed. I have recommended three people from where I work - they are just amazed of what a change you have made in me in such a short time.
Lori – May 2013
Winter 2012 - I felt rough for most of it! I was diagnosed with sinusitis and had three lots of antibiotics. By December I was pretty desperate – my skin was poor, I was sleeping badly, (I’ve always been the world’s best sleeper!), I lacked energy and drive and had several episodes of feeling extremely sick.
I sat next to Linda at a tennis lunch and decided to go for Vega testing. Following the testing – I was put on a strict diet – including no wine! A month on I was feeling so much better – I was sleeping without waking at 3am, my skin was clearer, my sinus’ had cleared and I had lost about 10lbs. My waist had shrunk by 3 inches! Two months on – I’m back to what I consider my normal self. Happy, relaxed, motivated with very little sneezing, not a wave of nausea in sight, (and the added benefit of being a size 12 for the first time in 15 years!)
I feel great. There is no doubt that we are what we eat, I thought my family ate a really healthy diet before seeing Linda, but now realise that quite a lot of processed foods had slipped in and that I was a sugar addict! Thanks Linda, XXXXXX I am feeling so much better and healthier just by making the dietary adjustments you recommended. I am still pretty much following the diet and have noticed real improvements so thank you so much for your help.
Bec – April 2013
I am feeling so much better and healthier just by making the dietary adjustments you recommended. I am still pretty much following the diet and have noticed real improvements so thank you so much for your help.
Thank you xx
Sandie - March 2013
I shall tell all my friends about you because what you do is miracle work! There was me thinking I might have Anaemia or ME but it’s just one wrong food I'm eating! Incredible!
Ashleigh - February 2013.
The diet is going great......! Felt so much better for it and my skin is still good and I have received many compliments!
Ashleigh - January 2013
I have just passed my 60th birthday and feel 40 again and it’s all thanks to the treatment I have received from Linda!
Four months ago I was very overweight, in chronic pain in muscles and joints, had constant diarrhea, high blood pressure, reflux, asthma, Vitamin D deficiency, under active thyroid and no energy a tall.
After all the tests under the sun by both doctors and specialists I was told I had Vitamin D deficiency, given some more drugs and to just keep taking pain killers which “helped” a little. I was desperate for help and after finding Linda’s website, my husband drove me from Whitstable Kent to ask for help.
Linda diagnosed several food intolerances and Candida. She gave me a detailed list of foods to avoid, help with my new diet and supplied supplements and a programme to make me well again. It wasn’t easy to start with but so worthwhile.
And she has done it!! I am well again! No more pain! No more diarrhea! No more blood pressure, reflux drugs and painkillers! Much more energy! Lots of weight loss – 2 ½ stone so far!! I am swimming three times a week! The marvellous thing is – I am not hungry and I am eating less but more nutritious food.
Its true! Linda you are amazing!!
Shalagh – November 2012
Hi Linda, thought I would just give you an update of how things are going. Things are really going well. I have managed to get off the Amitrypline all together which is very pleasing. I just wanted to say a big thank you as you have completely transformed my life and it is so lovely to get up every day without wondering what time the headache will start. So again thank you, and if I have any further problems I will get back in touch.
Denise – October 2012
Thank you very much for all the help and assistance that you have given me over the last 10 weeks. I came to you feeling exhausted, fuzzy-headed and unable to concentrate or focus for any length of time, plus the size of my middle just kept increasing!
After following strictly, your dietary recommendations and suggested supplements, vitamins and supplements I rapidly began to feel better; the first improvement I notice after just a couple of days was that I didn’t feel tired all the time, I also began to sleep like a log for the first time in years. After a week or so I noticed that my concentration had improved and that I had clarity. Over the period that I have been under your guidance, I have also lost 12 pounds and 5 inches from around my waist, my BMI has also dropped quite a bit.
Friends and family have commented on how much healthier I look and now I feel able to take on more work, which I wouldn’t have been able to contemplate previously!
Thank you so much.
Kathryn – October 2012
Ever since I can remember I have suffered from bloating, stomach pain, trapped wind and acid indigestion. I assumed most of it was to do with eating wheat so tended to avoid eating it regularly. My mum had been to see Linda as she suffered with headaches on a daily basis and after having the vega test (which identifies intolerances), Linda had advised that she was suffering from candida (a bacteria in the gut that feeds mainly on yeast and sugar) and had been given a diet to follow and various supplements to take. Soon after starting the diet and taking the supplements she said her headaches had stopped. I read the information she had been given about candida and it said how it can affect digestion and cause bloating and wind etc. Seeing as my mum had had such good results I thought it would be worth going to see Linda about my symptoms and see what she advice she could give. After explaining the symptoms and completing the vega test Linda said that it was candida and that I would benefit from following the anti candida diet and take a number of supplements. She advised that it would take a couple of months as initially I had to prepare my body to fight the candida. I followed the diet and instantly felt the benefits. I visited Linda during this time to monitor progress and to obtain further supplements and at the end of the programme I completed the vega test again and found that the candida had cleared. In addition, a number of other items that I had previously shown up as being intolerant to were now showing as clear. There were still some things, like wheat, dairy and coffee that I still had an intolerance to but Linda had given me a number of alternatives to use along with recipes.
I feel so much better for having seen Linda and establishing exactly what it was that I was intolerant to and am so glad to finally be rid of the pain and discomfort I was suffering from. So I just want to say thank you so much and would recommend anyone to come and see you for advice if they are suffering from similar symptoms.
Ross - September 2012
I would just like to say thank you so much for all you have done - I am feeling great - I am walking further and swimming and my back feels great and no problems with the knee - I have lost another 4lb - I am eating very healthy and hope the symptoms don’t come back!
Thank you again
Denise – September 2012
I just wanted to let you know, that cutting out some of the foods and giving her the supplement, Amelia is now going to the toilet either every day or every other day and her stools are never hard now.
I want to say a big thank you for helping Amelia, as it was very horrible seeing her uncomfortable and in pain.
Laura - August 2012
Well, I've been sticking to the plan and avoiding all the things identified during my consultation. The good news is I've found it easy to follow and I have noticed that I don't have anything like the bloating that I'd had previously - I just assumed it was normal! So I shall be sticking to it....Many thanks.
Anna – August 2012
Thank you so much for all your help and advice; the improvement with my IBD has been great. I'm sticking to the diet and taking the supplements you recommended and so far so good. I am so grateful to you; your help has been much better than anything my Doctor/hospital has done for me.
Ceilia – August 2012
I’ve lost 4kg in the last 3 weeks, 5cm off of my waist and BMI down 1% too and I’ve been on holiday!
Kathryn – July 2012
It was such a relief to meet Linda and have her help. I feel so much better and much more informed on what is best for me! Thank you so much Linda. I would highly recommend her, her continuous help between consultations were outstanding. Before I met her I was desperate and really struggling everyday with itchiness and digestion pain. It's such a great feeling to feel normal again!! Thanks Linda.
Mandy - June 2012
Was great meeting you, its great to witness someone with so much knowledge and truly good at what they do as their job. We were amazed with the testing etc.
Thank you again
Denise – May 2012
Well, I've surprised myself, and not touched the 'forbidden' foods. My stomach isn't swelling anymore, which is brilliant, and my wheeze disappeared last week.
Linda – February 2012
More than a year ago I was diagnosed with IBS, stomach hernia and gallstones and just left to suffer. I tried all sorts of medicines and diets, but nothing helped, and I lost so much weight that I had no more energy and had to take naps in the daytime. My stomach upsets were becoming more frequent and severe.
Then I met Linda. She helped me to find out which foods had been causing my problems and she gave me lots of guidance on what/when to eat and how to prepare certain foods. She also supplied me with different natural medicines which helped me on my way to recovery. I followed her advice and felt better immediately, and three months later I managed to regain weight and gain confidence to leave the house without having to worry about the locations of public toilets. Linda changed my life for the better and I shall remain forever grateful.
Danijela – January 2012
Hi Linda, my digestion is so much better....My energy is much more stable, more than it has been for many years, and my thinking and mental clarity is also amazingly improved!
Thanks for your help.
Rachel - August 2011
Linda, since having made changes to Amy's diet she has had no headaches or tummy aches.
Tina – August 2011
Thanks Linda for all your help. Since you diagnosed the allergies we have obviously stopped her consuming them and have found she is now sleeping better, and concentrating better as well. Thank you so much.
Louise - August 2011
Many, many thanks Linda, you have been fabulous.
Sharon August 2011
Thanks Linda.... stomach has been a lot better!
Lisa - June 2011
Hi Linda, just to say that following your plan it has had a dramatic effect on me already . I am losing weight, less bloated, skin much better, more energy and haven't had any rushes to the loo! Surprisingly I haven't been hungry in-between meals and no cravings, so all good!
Lara - June 2011
Already I feel better and more comfortable, I have also lost some weight which is fab as I have been struggling for ages and good before I put a bikini on this week.
Sharon - May 2011
Hi Linda, I just wanted to thank you for your help. I have stuck to my diet and it has rectified my IBS and gut problems. Thanks again.
Neil - March 2011
I came to you a few years ago for an allergy test, since you identified the problem foods I have been fine avoiding them....I would now like to make an appointment for my brother.
Dorothy - February 2011
Just a quick note to say that having cut out all of the foods you suggested, I haven't had an upset stomach for 2 weeks now, which is brilliant. I've got more energy and weirdly, even though I'm still getting up in the night for the children, I've been sleeping like a log in between getting up and down!!! So thank you. Also, even though it’s only been 2 weeks, my clothes are getting quite baggy on me, which is a bonus too.
Laura - October 2010
I cannot believe the difference that Linda has made to my life. I came to her feeling fed up and frustrated having been on strong painkillers for 7 years. I had been extremely constipated all that time and had had an ulcer and gall stones and always looked 6 months pregnant. I was fed up with having to explain to people that I am not pregnant. I felt very sluggish too.
Linda tested me for food allergies and discovered I was allergic to quite a few foods and I began a very restricted diet along with supplements to help repair the damage the drugs had done to my digestive. Within weeks my stomach reduced in size and my body began to work as it should again. Now after 3 months I only need to avoid a couple of foods. I feel so much better and happier in myself. I am taking supplements for my pain which do not have all those nasty side effects that drugs have.
I would thoroughly recommend Linda Perkins to anyone who has health issues which drugs just add to rather than help.
Joan - September 2010
I had a consultation with you in July this year. Your advise was really helpful and I have made (and am still making changes) to my diet and lifestyle. So far the results have been great and I am feeling better then I have in years.
Donna – September 2010
Just wanted to drop you an e-mail to say - something is working !!! Following your advice has turned my problem round without a doubt. Thank you Linda for your help, I will come back to you if I need that follow up consultation but for now I am happy with the results so far.
Lucy – September 2010
Thank you for all this information and seeing me today. You have actually exceeded my expectations and giving my mind a lot to think about and digest.
Lucy – August 2010
Thank-you again for your help with my testing, everything seems to be going well, I have noticed a huge difference!
Kate – August 2010
Linda was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad I contacted her. Prior to my consultation I knew I had food intolerances but really wasn't sure what I could eat in order to feel well. Linda identified a problem with Candida as well as several food intolerances. I followed a strict 3 month eating regime which made a massive difference and within 8 weeks some of my intolerances had gone. In addition while following the programme it helped enormously to know that she was only at the end of a phone/email for additional advice and support. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Sophie – August 2010
I would like to thank you for all your help and advice over the past few months. I am so happy with the changes in my health since contacting you. My blood pressure has decreased dramatically and I have now reduced my medication.
Thank you once again.
Felicity – February 2010
I just wanted to update you on my eating programme. I’m pleased to report that I began noticing improvements within the first week which was excellent and I am continuing to take my supplements and feel that these have helped too.
Philippa – January 2010
Thankyou for your email and for my wonderful consultation which I found very beneficial and helpful in organising my eating and diet again!
The dietary advice and recipies are fantastic and I am looking forward to making as many of them as I can as they sound absolutely delicious and very healthy, plus I love cooking which is great!
Philippa – December 2009
My health has improved massively since I have been following the instructions given. The supplements are doing wonders and I am not feeling ill often at all.
I just want to say a big thank you. You've really helped me and my life is getting back on its tracks. Thank you again for your time and help. It is most appreciated.
Elisha – December 2009
Many thanks for all the help, things have been so much more stable, with one less thing to worry about! Have had much improvement on everything. Thought it would be a lot harder than it has been.
Claire – August 2009
Upon seeing Linda in March 2009, I discovered that I have a Candida problem. Linda recommended a strict diet with supplements to clear me of this. I stuck to this diet and now feel 100 times better, even my bladder problem has improved.
I have lost 2st 2lb and still losing slowly, I have lots more energy.
I have discussed Linda's approach to well being to lots of family and friends.
I'm very pleased and glad to have seen Linda and will be returning for check ups.
Lesley – July 2009
I certainly did find the consultation very useful and your recommendations have already been put into practice, I realise that although my diet is fairly healthy, I do need more variety and I shall enjoy experimenting with your recipes.
I feel that many people would find the whole experience very beneficial.
Diana – July 2009
We are both feeling so much better. We have more energy and no dips in energy and no migraines, so thank you!
We love your recipe for chocolate mousse and are slowly trying some of the others out.
Roz – June 2009
The 'Diet' is still going well I have lost over 6 pounds since our consultation and just feel so much better in myself.
Thanks again for all your help.
Laura – June 2009
I am pleased to report that I am feeling 500% better with bags more energy and my skin is much improved. Thanks so much for such a great consultation and all the follow up contact since.
Lorna - June 2009
Thanks you so much I have just been having a read through of everything you sent to me. The nutrition plan looks most helpful and inspirational.
I found the consultation with you so informative and although I cannot believe that I waited so long to have these tests done, I am glad that I had them done with you.
I thought that the appointment was really well structured and I was able to leave with confidence that I could properly begin to address my health issues given the huge discoveries that were made in such a short space of time.
Once again, Thank You Linda!
Lorna - May 2009
This is just to let you know, my daughter’s tongue has practically cleared up, her eczema on her legs has gone and her behavior has completely changed for the better. I am so pleased and she is so much happier and it hasn't even been a week yet.
Thank you so much
Angela – Feb 2009
Further to my appointment on the 6th May I thought I would let you know of my progress.
Over the last 5 weeks I have seen positive improvements. Gradually my energy levels have returned and I have suffered less headaches and digestive problems.
Overall I am feeling much better.
Once again thank you very much for your advice and detailed diet and recipe sheets you sent me.
Gemma – June 2008
Just a note to say thanks. I came to see you about 6 months ago. You told me the cause of severe migraines I had been getting for years.
Since the consultation I have stopped eating foods containing these additives, and haven't had a single migraine, in fact headaches have practically stopped altogether. I am over the moon, as no doctor had been able to tell me what was causing them and I probably would never have found out.
I recently changed jobs and this has been a godsend as the migraines used to affect my work quite regularly.
Laura – June 2008
I am feeling so much better with the pain virtually gone. I saw my consultant last week who signed me off so I'm pretty pleased with the results of the treatment. Thank you.
Gemma - April 2008
Hi, I am the mother of young 10 year old boy. About 18 months ago his primary school asked me to have him assessed for ADHD. Ryan’s behaviour at this time was aggressive; he struggled to concentrate, was performing very badly at school, and was totally disruptive in class. He couldn’t sit still long enough to eat a family meal, and was constantly chattering, utter rubbish most of the time. So I took him to be assessed, he was diagnosed with ADHD. The doctor prescribed Ritalin and pushed us out the door.
Ryan’s behaviour did improve when the medication was effective, it would, he was drugged, but either side of the medication i.e. first thing in the morning and last thing at night, his behaviour was much worse. The doctor just said this was normal and dismissed it. How many of you reading this finds this a familiar story.
Then I read a book on alternative approaches to ADHD, ie Nutritional and Homeopathy. No mother wants her child to take amphetamines, so, on recommendation, I found Linda.
Ryan had a Vega test he showed as being dairy intolerant and intolerant to many of the additives. I changed his diet completely, and started him on Vitamin supplements. I also took him to see a Homeopath. Ryan’s behaviour improved but at times he still seemed to reacting to something and I could work out what. So Linda recommended a Hair analysis. This showed that Ryan was struggling to maintain his sugar levels. Linda advised an intensive three months of supplements, and the homeopath prescribed something to help the pancreas.
All that ended two months ago. Ryan is now so much calmer. His relationships at home are so much better, before he felt so insecure and pushed away, that has all changed, people have patience with him, and hence he feels so much more secure and loved. At school he is now able to concentrate, and at long last has friends.
It has been a long, long, LONG, hard road. But the effect Nutrition has had on my little boy has been astounding. I cannot urge anyone enough to give this approach a try. But a word of warning, the results are not immediate, at times you think it will never make a difference, and please remember every child is a jigsaw puzzle, you really have to find what works for your child. You need to be totally determined and focused. Ryan didn’t like the life he had, and has tried just as hard as I have. He has been so good and won’t eat anything he knows effects him.
I feel I have finally got my loving little boy back. It has made such a difference, and long term, I know his life would have gone in a very different direction, had I done nothing. Ryan is so much happier.
Now I don’t believe it was ever ADHD. Unfortunately I don’t think the funds are available to the NHS to try alternative methods. IT’S REALLY DOWN TO YOU.
Yvonne – Feb 2008
I feel so much better and have had no problems at all with my sinuses this winter. I can hardly believe it when I think how awful they were last year.
Carol – Jan 2008
Thanks Linda for all your help. Since you diagnosed her aspartame and citric acid allergy we have obviously stopped her consuming it and have found she is now sleeping better, and concentrating better as well as obviously her teeth are no longer hurting her so thank you so much.
Louise – Jan 2008
I am getting back to you as promised, having followed your nutritional advice for several weeks now.
I am no longer having headaches as the tumour I had previously has now entirely resolved. Whether or not this was due to the nutritional changes, I could not say. However, I can definitely say that I had experienced very positive effects to my health in cutting out coffee and adding magnesium to my diet. I feel very much better now than I did a couple of months ago.
Many thanks for your help.
Emma – Jan 2008
Thank you ever so much for the Vitamin B-complex supplement. It has changed my life!!!
I am really feeling much better and can handle whatever life throws at me. I am not constantly tired and drained....and at times, very tearful and irritable. I have started to take the iron tablets as well.....I feel so much better.
Thanks again....Christmas will now be a holiday I am looking forward to...I did not a few weeks ago...
Mona – Dec 2007
My four year old son has always had behaviour problems. As a toddler he went through every negative behaviour imaginable (biting, hitting, pinching, weeing everywhere and wrecking the house, toys, games, etc).
A friend whose child seemed to have similar problems to mine suggested a Vega test with Linda. By this time I was desperate enough
to try anything. He had the test and tested intolerant to many foods including dairy products and additives.
On Linda’s advice we changed Leos diet, cut out all the junk food and started to enjoy family meals. The effect was immediate, overnight he changed from a violent hyperactive child who seemed out of control to a nicer little boy, a joy to have and best of all he could be trusted outside the house. We’ve even taken him Xmas shopping something we wouldn’t have considered before.
Thanks to Linda for all your help and Advice.
Rachel – Dec 2007
Something very strange is happening, after the horrible headaches cleared I feel brighter, also I'm sleeping for longer which is
fantastic. The other thing I'm feeling good about is, it’s not too hard to stick to. I've been 100% for a whole week, even with going out for dinner.
Lisa – October 2007
I really have not felt so well, clear, alive for many, many years! Thank you.
Rachel P – August 2007
Since the consultation I have been following your advice, and taking the supplements you recommended, and I am pleased to report that I have felt very much better. The bloatedness and abdominal discomfort have improved to the point where it is no longer a problem.
Thanks again for your help.
Pauline – February 2007
I thought it was about time I gave you an update on my condition, sorry it has taken me so long.
Since I cut out coffee and the other foods you advised I have been virtually free of any nasal congestion. I am feeling much better; it was a relief to be able to breathe properly.
Thank you for your help and the information you have sent me since my consultation.
Dorothy – December 2006
My name is Sue and I am 53 years old. I first went with to see Linda with several problems. I had suffered with digestive discomfort for as long as I could remember and also severe constipation from when I was a teenager. My other problem was the menopause; mainly hot sweats.
On visiting Linda, I soon discovered I had something called Candida which unfortunately caused most of my problems. Linda started me on a programme which was very strict but I was determined to stick with it. The first 3 months were to be the treatment for the Candida. I went back to Linda after 2 months and to our amazement the Candida had cleared up and we found I wasn’t intolerant to anything anymore.
Also I felt so good inside. I had suffered for years thinking that it was quite a normal feeling in my stomach but obviously it wasn’t. I feel everyone should have this test done because I’m sure there are a lot of people out there feeling how I did and don’t realise that it isn’t right.
Sue – December 2006
I was diagnosed by a specialist as having IBS as I had been experiencing a lot of stomach upsets and would get a stomach ache after eating. I was told that I would have to learn to live with the condition. I soon found this impossible as I felt constantly ill and my food ranges were becoming smaller and smaller as I cut out foods that I thought were aggravating my condition. I then decided to visit Linda who found out which foods I was intolerant to by doing a Vega test. This brought up 24 foods that I could not eat. Although I religiously stayed off these foods I did not seem to be getting better and Linda then suggested diagnostic testing. This test highlighted two problems with my stomach which were treated with medication. At my last visit, Linda did another Vega test and discovered that I was now only intolerant to dairy products allowing me to eat the majority of other foods to which I had previously been intolerant.
I am pleased to say that I am now feeling a lot better and have started to enjoy my food again without having constant stomach aches/upsets. I cannot thank Linda enough for all that she has done for me. I found Linda to be very caring during the time that she was treating me as she would quite often ring to find out how I was feeling. I found her to be very thorough in seeking a diagnosis and finding the correct remedies to help me. I have discovered through Linda that I do not have to live with the label of IBS as there was an underlying cause to my problems that could be treated and now by eating the correct foods I can enjoy a healthy life.
September 2004 - DISASTER EVE! Diabetic, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, blotchy dry skin, overweight, tired, no energy, bloated, took no exercise. Lied about my weight but was 18stone 12lb and at 5' tall was a walking disaster zone.
Linda looked at my lifestyle, taught me some simple calming techniques, made me think about me (for a change) and devised for me a comprehensive food programme that really fitted my lifestyle.
However, I was very negative about the diet although knew I had to do something drastic. It took me a month to get my head round the changes - some very reluctantly - but then something took over and I knew it would work for me.
January 2005 - NEW YEARS EVE! Sugar levels reduced, cholesterol normal, blood pressure down dramatically, lost 2st 4lbs, sleep better, bags of energy, skin texture visibly better, feeling fabulous. I am enjoying the changes in the food, am more interested in what I eat, I plan my food intake better, keep a food diary and go to the gym as often as I can get there. And not because I think I should but because I want to and have the energy to do so. Now weigh 16st 8lbs and still losing. Down 2 dress sizes.
Linda is excellent. She has just the right balance of professional and caring and really helps you achieve your goals. I can't thank her enough.
When I first visited Linda in October 2004, I was suffering with bad IBS symptoms for five days out of every seven and it was getting me down. Even though I followed a healthy balanced diet, it made no difference to my symptoms of bloating, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Through Vega testing, Linda discovered I was intolerant to some foods I ate on a daily basis, and by cutting these out I felt much better. Eight months on I feel like a new person, full of energy and although I occasionally get IBS symptoms, I am mainly free of the pain I experienced before.
