Update following York test

Hi all,

I am on day 7 of cutting cows milk and yeast following the intolerence advice from York.

Yesterday had a normal motion, the first for probably 6 weeks, so am feeling optimistic, and managed to spend most of my working day in the office!.

Not much difference in stomach pain, bloating/wind, but any improvement is a bonus.

I was told that yeast is in wine, however, have read that it is eliminated during the filtering. Can anyone enlighten me?

So it has helped some.. maybe it will take time to get the other things to go out of your system, I am happy for you. You seemed to have improved a bit.

I don't know about the wine, isn't their something online that can give you the answer?


Hi Jimtom, yes I am seeing some improvement - thank you.

Re the wine - the nutritionist told me to avoid as it contains yeast, but other sources on the internet say the filtering eliminates the yeast, so am a bit confused.

Went out for a haircut yesterday, and managed to avoid the urgent need for a toilet, which has really cheered me up. I have become a bit of a loner recently because I am afraid friends will get fed up with my symptoms, fortunately I have a super supportive husband.

Will keep updating, thanks for your replies 😄


Yes yeast is in wine and seemingly on some fruits e.g. blueberries. Wash thoroughly. Dont eat over ripe fruit as it ferments in stomach.


Thank you Sammysmum, I eat blueberries regularly so will ensure they are washed first, and will avoid overripe fruit.
