What is the 500 Item Hair Test?
We know foods and the environment around us can have a negative impact on our health and sometimes identifying causes can be tricky. This easy test is just one of many options I have as a naturopath when looking at additional testing options for my clients.
I don't like to do lots of testing generally but there are times when more information is needed to help us identify what is going on.
The Bio-Compatibility hair test looks at 500 different bathroom, laundry & kitchen products as well as common local foods found at Woolworths, Coles, supermarkets and health food stores. This test works on a cellular level, looking at what is positively or negatively impacting the cells within your body. This test is not the same as a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis test (I use that functional test for other areas of investigation) and is the result of 30 years of extensive research and development.
I find this test helpful for:
Eczema, psoriasis, acne, rashes, itchy, dry and inflamed skin.
Bloating, reflux, colic, irritable bowel, diarrhoea, leaky gut, constipation, flatulence and poor digestion
Arthritis, hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, hashimoto's, grave's, hay fever and infections
Recurring sickness, disease and autoimmune diseases
Behavioural issues, poor concentration, foggy memory and low energy levels
Food cravings, fatigue and poor sleep
This test is suitable for infants, children and adults with the option of using head hair, body hair or saliva (a great option for the little bubbas who don't have any hair yet!). A small hair sample can be taken at the end of the hair, instead of the roots (coloured hair is okay) and is posted to the laboratory for processing. Results take a couple of weeks generally to come back in depending on the demand.
