Hair Food Incompatibility Testing

I get asked all the time about intolerance testing and how to work out food intolerances.

One of the tests I use most frequently to work out which foods are not agreeing with the body at that particular time is the Hair 600 Test, which tests over 600 of the most common foods found in supermarkets and health food stores, home and self care products also.



This is a test that I have used personally but also use regularly in clients to support a range of conditions including, but not limited to:

  • If you are suffering with skin problems, eczema, unusual rashes, psoriasis;

  • digestive issues such as bloating, indigestion, irritable bowel, constipation;

  • arthritis;

  • children with behaviour issues;

  • any and all issues of health and particularly those related to inflammation. It is a non-intrusive test ideal for children.


The Technology behind Bio-Compatibility testing

The technique is based on the way in which the foods and products we use affect the flow of energy through the body. If the energy systems within the body are compromised in any way by a food/product that is biologically incompatible, the cells cannot function optimally. This may lead to an immune response, inflammation, and ultimately reactive symptoms.

Using hair samples, Bio-Compatibility testing identifies the influence (either positive or negative) that each of a wide range of foods and products has on the delivery and storage systems in each cell. In this way, we are then able to determine which foods and products should be avoided and which should be consumed/used.

The Bio-Compatibility System complements and integrates easily with any other therapy or medication by simply removing foods and household items that are testing negative for your particular body.



What is required?

The testing uses approximately 1 Tablespoon of hair (or saliva if no hair available). The hair can be coloured or natural.



What is the process?

The hair is cut from the nape of the head (no roots of the hair required) and is placed in a specific zip lock bag for testing purposes. This can be done before the initial consultation or afterwards however a consultation must be arranged to receive the test results.

Test results will be discussed in depth and recommendations on gut healing will also be discussed.

The foods that come back as not compatible, are to be removed form the diet for a maximum of 6 months while the body is given the opportunity to recover and repair. Further hair testing can be undertaken after 6 months to see progression.



If this is something you are interested in, I can send you a copy of the foods tested and we can organise your testing within your initial consultation.

Bookings for an initial consult, can be made here.
