Questionnaires - Food Intolerance

If you regularly have any of the 80 plus symptoms on the Food Intolerance Questionnaire, this could be a sign that you have food intolerances, particularly if you know of no other reason why your symptoms might be present. This questionnaire can be printed out for completion. Please refer to the book 'The Food Intolerance Bible' for your interpretation and Action Plan. A copy may be purchased on this website if you do not already have one.
