Symptoms are Signals!

The foodintol® Symptoms Matrix: Track down your food intolerance

The foodintol® Symptoms Matrix allows you to narrow the possibilities of your food intolerance. There are only a few culprits - so use the Matrix - and you're well on the way to identifying yours!

Remember - to get proof of your food intolerance - just track your changes in symptoms as you 'switch a few foods' using a blank exercise book or journal. More accurate than blood tests or clinical testing!

How to use the Symptoms Matrix

The Symptoms Matrix allows you to narrow the possibilities of your food intolerance. But - it will not diagnose it.

You can do this with a blank exercise book ($2 at your local newsagent) or with the foodintol® Detection Diet Journal in the Healing Program.

At the top of each column there is a link to a type of food intolerance - Dairy, Yeast etc. If your symptoms fall mostly in one column then there is a good chance you have that intolerance. For example if you have a lot of fungal infections like thrush and tinea you can see it is associated with Yeast Sensitivity. 

On the other hand Gastro-intestinal symptoms (to do with the stomach and intestines) are common to several types of food intolerance, but are not particularly linked to food allergy. Which are you?

Find each of your symptoms in the first column and then trace across to see which columns have a dot. Do this one by one for each symptom, eg. headache, stomach bloating, hives etc. (Some people print the Symptoms Matrix and mark their symptoms on the page with an 'X'.)
You are looking for a pattern that matches up with your collection of symptoms.

Remember also, many people have more than one food intolerance.
