The 500 Hair Test
One thing is certain – if we feed the body the right foods, health and healing will ensue. Naturally, we are embodied to adapt and survive. Given the right environment, nothing can hinder these primitive needs and intrinsic abilities.
How do we know what foods agree with our body?
Better yet, how do we know what foods are going to provide our body the least amount of irritation and the optimal environment to heal and repair?
Some use intuitive eating – consuming what they feel their body needs when their body gives them cravings or symptoms. This is a proactive and individualistic approach to health, but how can you be sure you are correctly interpreting your symptoms and cravings? For example, craving chocolate can be indicative of the need for copper, but is seldom desired just for that purpose. Chocolate cravings can also illustrate blood sugar imbalances or the need for sugar to relieve elevated cortisol. Do you see how complex messages can sometimes be misconstrued?
So, how can we truly understand how to best feed our bodies?
What can we do to ensure that our diet is wholly supporting an anti-inflammatory and unreactive environment?
With the 500 Hair Test, we can now confidently support each individual with a personalised dietary plan that removes reactive and incompatible foods, and give the body the vitality it needs to fix other imbalances within.
The 500 Hair Test utilises advanced technology to test your compatibility against 500 common and local food items and household products. It is non-invasive and incredibly comprehensive, requiring only a small sample of hair for testing to be conducted. Hair can be taken from anywhere on the body, and the test is unaffected by hair dyes or bleaches.
What can you expect in return?
The 500 Hair Test allows you to easily identify and eliminate items which have come up as incompatible for your body. By removing these "trigger" foods, we allow the body the optimal environment to encourage healing and restoration. This test is recommended to assist in symptom presentations of:
- Rashes/Itchy skin
- Autoimmune Disease
- Leaky Gut Syndrome
- Digestive issues
- Inflammatory conditions eg Arthritis
- Behavioural issues in children
- Bowel irregularities
At only $285 to test 500 items, it has never been easier to allow food to be thy medicine. Generally, we give patients 4 weeks to note improvements before we start incorporating other supportive strategies, as this is how much we expect your new diet plan to assist with symptom reduction. Obviously each case is different, but this test allows you to have more power over your diet, to support healing from the inside out.
