Symptoms range in people and can include headaches, migraines, rashes, painful periods, bloating and IBS-symptoms.

Bio-Compatability Hair 500 Test

Using a small hair sample, Bio-Compatibility testing identifies the influence (either positive or negative) that over 500 different foods and products has on the delivery and storage systems in each cell. This 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.In this way, we are then able to determine which foods and products should be avoided and which should be consumed/used.

Our standard Australian test covers a list of over 500 foods and products— including all food groups, bathroom, laundry, and kitchen products.
