Food and Environmental Intolerances Questionnaire
Below are common signs and symptoms of food or environmental intolerances. These intolerances affect your body's ability to function and can contribute to adrenal fatigue. They may or may not show up on allergy tests, but if you have many of these signs and symptoms, your body is likely reacting to one or more substances you are eating, drinking or have been exposed to. Once you determine which substance(s) is bothering you and remove it, you should see improvement, provided that your adrenal glands have the capacity to respond and recover.
Note that the signs and symptoms listed below have more than one cause, and any single sign or symptom is not a direct indication of a food or environmental intolerance. Taken as a group, however, they are very useful indicators of hidden problems affecting your metabolism, and possibly your adrenals.
Check all items that you presently experience.
Your Score for the Test is: 0
If you have more than 8 of the items checked, you likely have an intolerance to some substance(s) in your diet or environment that is interfering with your metabolism. Consult chapters 13, 14 and 19 in the book, Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome for help in pinpointing the culprit(s) and finding solutions. There are also lab tests that can help you determine exactly which substances you are reacting to.
