QEESI – The Self-Assessment Tool to Determine Chemical Intolerance
There is a strong link between indoor air quality and chemical intolerance, which can underlie many chronic symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, memory and concentration difficulties, depression, anxiety, and other effects on mood.
The Quick Environmental Exposure and Sensitivity Inventory (QEESI) is a screening instrument for chemical intolerance used worldwide by researchers and practitioners. It is available free of charge to individuals who want to better understand the effects of low-level exposures on their health. Developed by the renowned Claudia Miller, M.D., M.S., allergist/immunologist and tenured Professor at the University of Texas School of Medicine at San Antonio.
1) Download the QEESI form at http://drclaudiamiller.com/QEESItest, and complete the questionnaire. Included is a handy guide that helps interpret the results for your use and/or discussion with your doctor.
2) Perform a Home Air Check™ assessment in your home to get a more complete picture of how chemical intolerances and your indoor air quality are linked. 82% of homes have airborne chemical levels that exceed healthy guidelines set by the U.S. Green Building Council, and 13% of homes have chemical levels six times higher than the recommended level. We suggest ordering the VOC and Formaldehyde test. Click here to Order
3) Bring both your completed QEESI form and the results of your Home Air Check analysis to your doctor to discuss your concerns.
