Questionnaires - Degestive Enzymes

The signs and symptoms of a lack of digestive enzymes present us with yet another list of overlapping symptoms which could ultimately relate to almost any condition in the body related to malnourishment or food intolerance. Therefore, only the major signs and symptoms are included in the questionnaire below. Since digestive enzymes are recommended to one and all in the Digestive Support Plans, this questionnaire should be used primarily as an aid to monitoring your improvement. The questionnaire can be printed out for completion. If you do not already have a copy of 'The Food Intolerance Bible', you can purchase one from this website.
