Are you experiencing migraines, constipation or skin rashes? Do you suspect you might have an intolerance? Intolerance testing uses a sample of your hair to determine your sensitivity to up to 900 food and non-food items.

Intolerance testing tests food items including everyday foods and common fridge items, and non-food items such as pets and pollens. Testing includes a nutritional deficiency, metal toxicity, gut biome and hormonal balance analysis. It also includes an extensive analysis for gut biome, digestive health, hormonal imbalances as well as nutritional deficiencies and common metal sensitivities.

This test only requires a small hair sample which can be collected from the comfort of your own home! Unlike blood and urine tests which can be affected by recent food intake or stress, hair testing is unaffected by the tested person’s most recent activity and is able to assess one’s health covering a much longer period of time.

Once you place the order, a sample collection kit will be sent by post to your address. The intolerance testing kit will contain all you require to perform the test. The hair sample collection process is relatively simple and easy. After the laboratory receives your sample, results will be available in 3-5 working days.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the difference between an allergy and an intolerance?
Allergies are more severe than intolerances and their reaction is usually felt immediately. An allergy also tends to be with you for life. Contrarily, intolerances are normally less severe in nature and can change over time. In addition, the symptoms of an intolerance are not immediate, manifesting anywhere from 10 minutes to 48 hours after the food has been consumed.

My hair is very short, can I still take the test?
The hair sample does not have to be from the head. The hair sample for this test can be from any part of the body including the leg, arm or chest.

My hair is dyed, will this affect the test results?
No, the test is completed using the composition of the hair sample so hair colouring will have no effect on the results.

What do my results actually mean?
The items on the list that display a colour indicate a minimum intolerance level of 85% and are graded as low, medium or high within these parameters. For instance if you are lactose or milk intolerant it will display red or yellow.

It is common for something that has never caused you an issue before to start doing so. It depends on your diet, habits and environment. If for reasons of poor immune system levels or poor diet, you have too much of one particular element in your system, your body will have trouble dealing with these increased levels. The side effects of this imbalance are known as intolerance.

What is exactly determined in the metal toxicity analysis?
This health test does not indicate how much of any given metal is present in your body. The metal toxicity analysis determines one’s sensitivity to the metals included in the test. Sensitivity to one particular metal will cause a reaction when direct or indirect contact is made meaning that you don’t necessarily have to actually touch it. It could mean that it’s a metal that is present somewhere in your daily surroundings and you are exposed to it. Common sources include machinery operated at work and metals used in air conditioning systems.

What’s the difference between food allergy and food intolerance?
You may have the same symptoms if you suffer from a food allergy or food intolerance, however, there are some important differences you should be aware of.

If you have food allergy means your body cannot digest it and therefore the ingested food will irritate your digestive system immediately. Allergies are a lifelong condition. Symptoms are headaches, cramps, gas, diarrhea or nausea.

Food intolerance or food sensitivity are less severe than allergies, you won’t feel the reaction immediately and the intolerance may change over time depending on your lifestyle and diet changes. Symptoms are cough, swelling, abdominal pain or breathing problems.
