Start with the foodintol® Symptoms Matrix here. Locate your symptoms to narrow down the possibilities.
Then use the Journal method to confirm your suspicions. This is more accurate than clinical testing – and the simplest, most effective way to identify your food intolerance. Why? Because your symptoms do not lie!
The Journal Method
- Just track changes in your symptoms as you ’Switch a few foods’. It’s easy.
Here’s what to do:
- Buy a blank exercise book from the newsagent (~ $2). Go online and get information on the food intolerance you most suspect. E.g. if you suspect gluten intolerance search for ‘gluten-free diet’.
- Avoid the suspect food for three weeks and keep your Journal. Every day note down all foods eaten including snacks, supplements and medications – and importantly note down your symptoms each day.
- Look for patterns – and improvement in symptoms – and note the foods you ate then.
- Test on Day 22 . Have one large serve of the avoided food and then go back to the diet. Now watch for changes in symptoms and track them in your Journal.
If the symptoms suddenly reappear – your suspicions were correct. From your results you will easily see whether you have that intolerance.
Or – you might like to have a fully laid-out journal – plus comprehensive food substitution guides for fructose, gluten, dairy, yeast – as found in the foodintol® Healing Program.
