Suspecting you may be suffering from food intolerances ?


We provide a scientific hair analysis test that uses the latest bio-resonance technology to identify the potential causes  and allow you to make changes to your diet or lifestyle, to alleviate your symptoms.

Why should I get tested?

Identifying a potential intolerance or sensitivity, nutrient deficiency, metal toxicity, digestive, metabolic and hormonal dysfunction is the first vital step to getting on the right track to better health. You will be equipped with in-depth, scientific and personalized insight about the current state of your body and the knowledge of how to improve your digestion, detoxification, nutritional intake, vitality, appearance and overall health.

Most other intolerance tests are currently limited to food items only but more often than not the actual intolerance is related to the chemicals used to process our daily food.

Interesting facts about intolerances:

  • Many people who are diagnosed with a wheat intolerance are actually intolerant to the chemicals used to manufacture the bread. Our test identifies these chemicals.

  • Hay fever sufferers can be intolerant to grass, wheat or tree pollen. Our test identifies the exact pollen which causes your hay fever.

  • A common cause of skin disorders is an intolerance to lettuce. Our test not only identifies if you are intolerant to lettuce but the type of lettuce e.g Kos.

  • If you have unexplained skin, respiratory or digestive problems you may be intolerant to dairy.

  • Intolerances to chemicals and environmental factors may cause identical symptoms to those of food intolerances, it is therefore essential that both are tested at the same time. Our test is currently the only test available that tests both food and environmental triggers.

  • Everyone has intolerances but not all will lead to visible symptoms or cause major immediate problems.

  • Your intolerances can change over time and can be affected by your exposure to the trigger and your environment, thus regular retesting is advisable.

Lack of Energy

I was fed up with being constantly sleepy  so I saw a doctor who said I wasn’t getting enough nutrients from my diet. I wanted to know what I needed, so got tested and the lab report showed that I needed  more fruit and vegetables. I have changed my diet and I feel more energetic already.

Thank you. 

Your test removed all the guesswork.

 Chronic Fatigue

I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue and had to take time off from work, I needed a quick and permanent solution to my condition, so looked online and found  this test, I had 

my whole family tested.

I  found out that I have a gluten intolerance which I have now cut out and feel much better.

The chronic fatigue is gone and I've never felt better.           

Thank you.

 Skin Rash

My son developed a rash that wouldn't go away. We tried medication, lotions and natural remedies and though some gave temporary relief, nothing gave lasting results. We were getting desperate. When I heard about  The intolerance, Deficiency and Toxicity Test

 I was very skeptical but decided to try.

When we got the results we followed the recommended elimination diet and supplements plan. I'm am happy to say my son is enjoying a full  and lasting recovery

Digestive Problems

This test helped me get my health back.

After years of suffering from IBS and other digestive problems, I found I was intolerant to millet and oats . Also, deficient in Vitamin B, Vitamin D and Potassium so I now take supplements and have rectified my diet. I cannot believe the difference in my symptoms from cutting the grains out.

I always presumed it was wheat and milk but these foods are okay. Now I highly recommend this test  to all my friends.


How and where is the test performed?

Our comprehensive, non-invasive test uses a sample of your hair collected at participating partner outlets

(doctor's offices, wellness clinics, health shops, hair and beauty salons).

Your sample will then be safely packaged and sent to the laboratory.

Our partner laboratory is based in the EU and is currently one of the largest providers of diagnostic tests of this nature world-wide. Having performed over half a million tests and achieving an unprecedented 99.5% customer satisfaction. The testing equipment is a registered class 11a medical device according to ISO EN 13485. Other medical equipment in the Class 11 level include x-ray machines, ultrasound equipment & radiology equipment.

Hair sampling is now used in many professions for drug and alcohol testing,too. Due to hairs ability to store information, it is ideal for testing  intolerances, nutritional deficiencies and metal toxicity,digestive, metabolic and hormonal dysfunction. An in-depth report can be produced from just a few strands, detailing all the items your body is currently negatively reacting to, or deficient in.

How do I get the test results ?

After receipt of your test results form the laboratory, we will generate a report that will clearly explain the finding and adequate recommendations. You will then, approximately 2-3 weeks post sample collection, consult with one of our trained staff members to discuss your personalized plan to improving your health. In your consultation you may discuss a possible elimination diet you might need to address your intolerances, nutritional and supplementation adjustments necessary to rectify your potential nutrient deficiency,digestive, metabolic and hormonal dysfunction or a detoxification plan to address metal toxicity.

Your test results will include all items which have shown an intolerance of 85% and over. Scientific research has shown that 85% inability to adequately process a specific food or additive to be the point at which symptoms begin to develop from an intolerance.

Why is the test done through hair strands?

Hair testing was discovered over 25 years ago. Scientific studies have shown that information about our body's health and function is recorded in our hair and data is both stable and permanently embedded with out daily fluctuation. Hair testing is now used regularly in the fields of drug testing, forensic science, nutritional and mineral analysis and hormone testing. Scientists see hair analysis as one of the most exciting areas for development due to the samples and history lasting much longer than those from blood and urine but also for it being non-invasive and easily accessible.

  • Broader testing ability – blood tests can usually only test for a small selection of items, whereas we can test you against over 500 potential intolerances,  more than 90 possible nutritional deficiencies and                  over 60 heavy metal pollutants from just a few strands of hair.​

  • No sample deterioration – once a blood or urine sample have been collected, they begin to deteriorate.  Hair, however, accurately stores information within and is not affected by outside contaminants.

  • Cost effective – due to the above reasons, hair testing is a lot cheaper than blood testing and allows us to pass these savings onto our customers in the form of extremely competitive prices.


With your test results you will receive personalized guidance and support in setting your individual health goals  and a health plan consisting of actionable and sustainable changes to set you on the road to success.

The Health Coach academy Health Coach will not prescribe a diet, but will mentor you to be able to make educated nutritional choices and assist you to create a dietary and lifestyle plan suited to your taste and needs.
