The Quick Symptom Questionnaire
My goal in The Diet Cure is to stop your food cravings, address your eating and weight problems, and eliminate your mood swings and negative obsessions about your body. But first we have to determine what is causing these problems.
Here is a questionnaire similar to the one you'll find in chapter one of the Diet Cure. It is a mini-version of the questionnaires that we use in our clinic. Its nine key sections will help you to identify the particular physical imbalances at the root of your problems. Click next to any symptom that applies to you and follow the instructions at the end of each section.
Within each popup you'll be directed to the corresponding chapters in the Diet Cure that explain exactly how to solve that particular problem. You'll also find suggestions for expediting the solution effort. We update these suggestions as new information, products, studies, and tests become available.
1. Is depleted brain chemistry the problem?
2. Are you suffering because of low-calorie dieting?
3. Are you struggling with blood sugar instability and stress?
5. Do you have unrecognized low thyroid function?
6. Are you addicted to foods you are actually allergic to?
7. Are your hormones unbalanced?
8. Do you have yeast overgrowth triggered by anti-biotics, cortisone, or birth control pills?
9. Do you have fatty acid deficiency?
If section one's score is over 10, read chapters 1 and 9. To clarify and speed things up for you, we've summarized these chapters in the next quiz: "Which Brain Type are You?" It will help you quickly identify which of four key brain functions is causing your carb cravings and emotional eating. It will also point you to which amino acid supplements you can use to correct those problems in 24 hours! Suggested doses are included within each popup section of that quiz.
Click the button your pointer is on to go to the Brain Type Questionnaire or go ahead and finish this questionnaire and come back when you're done. Note: If you are sensitive to supplements or medications, try one quarter of the lowest suggested dose to start with. Stop taking any supplement that gives you any adverse reactions. Read the Master Nutritional Supplement plan, Chapter 17 of The Diet Cure, for more information.
