The Intolerance Test uses your hair sample to test food, environmental, vitamin deficiency and heavy metals in the body. Known intolerances and allergens that you have not been exposed to for a period of time will not show up on your test results (example: If you have been gluten free for 2 months, then gluten will not show up on your intolerance results).
Our hair stores DNA type information that gives valuable information pertaining to the cellular changes that would occur within our bodies secondary to exposure to certain allergies. The hair sample is placed into the equipment – each item is tested line by line against the recorded resonances of all 650 food and non-food items. Our laboratory assistants set the equipment to record any items showing a difference in frequency of 85% or above. Our testing and experience has shown this to be an optimum level to reveal allergens of these 650 individual items. Many lab test results are expressed as a number that falls within a reference range. A reference range is determined by testing large groups of healthy people to find what is normal for that group. Some lab tests provide a simple “yes” or “no” answer. For instance, was the test positive for the bacteria that cause strep throat? Many other tests, however, are reported as numbers or values. Laboratory test results reported as numbers are not meaningful by themselves. Their meaning comes from comparison to reference values. Reference values are the values expected for a healthy person. They are sometimes called “normal” values.
By comparing your test results with reference values, we are able to provide you items outside expected ranges. Often they can provide clues to help identify possible conditions or diseases.
