Health Questionnaires

The questionnaires on this page are designed to find out if you have a particular health issue, or it is likely the issue is related to your signs and symptoms. Do one or do them all, depending on what you want to find out about your health.

Please contact us with your results (the total number of each section).

Then, depending on your needs, we send you to a link that takes you through a much more comprehensive online questionnaire. Then we analyse your results and recommend appropriate measures.

Please note these questionnaires are not a complete diagnosis in and of themselves, and are not intended to diagnose any type of illness.

DIGESTION/Low Stomach Acid

Many of our health problems come back to how food is digested.
Basic Naturopathic philosophy states that all disease begins in the gut. The quality of food we ingest is one thing, but the ability to assimilate and take up all the nutrients is really the key to better health.
As we age, our production of digestive enzymes and stomach acid decreases. Most people suffer from poor digestion and the answer is not antacids or Losec (omeprazole), but improving the digestion and getting rid of Helicobacter pylori, the bacterium that causes much stomach disease. Answer these questions as best you can. A yes to any one of these questions is likely you have problems in this area.
