Food Intolerance Testing
Are you suffering from unexplained nausea, bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, bowel irritation, sweating, headaches or migraines, nervousness, palpitations, a burning sensation in the skin, tiredness, mood changes? These are common symptoms of food intolerance and can affect all age groups at any time. It’s important to understand that food intolerance is not the same thing as a food allergy. A food intolerance is a reaction to a specific food or ingredient every time that food is eaten, especially if it is eaten in a larger amount. A food allergy, on the other hand, is more serious as it involves the immune system. Food intolerances are much more common than food allergies.
Diet change can and will help but working out what the underlying cause is can take a long time. Hair analysis cuts a long story short with a clear accurate answer. Elimination costs less but takes longer and is very dependent on the accuracy of you recording your symptoms. Expense vs time. If you are good record keeper then elimination is a great way. 😊 If you are very patient and monitor every symptom change you will eventually work out what you can and can’t tolerate. Or you can cut a long story short by using our food intolerance hair analysis service that will give you a clear answer to what is the cause of your symptoms. This can easily be organised by your Naturopath. We need to see you in the clinic first to clarify what is the right course of action for you. These results are life changing in all cases.

Hair Analysis for Food Intolerance and Environmental Sensitivities
Over 2500 years ago Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine once said – “All disease begins in the gut”. Modern science supports this, and today we are now left wondering what causes the “gut” to become diseased in the first place.
If you are experiencing symptoms like eczema or itchy skin, headaches, tiredness, thrush, increased heart rate, flushing, sweating, mood swings, digestive issues like constipation, diarrhoea, nausea, pain or bloating, you may be suffering from an intolerance to something you are either ingesting, applying, or are exposed to.
For years various tests and techniques have been developed and researched to discover individual drivers of disease and dysfunction, such as blood tests to check body chemistry, skin prick tests for allergens, MRI’s to analyse internal organs, X-rays to examine the skeleton, and hair analysis to identify food intolerances. Intolerances differ from allergies as they stress and inflame your body over time, and symptoms tend to come and go depending on exposure to an irritant. Allergies upon exposure are immediate, and trigger a deadly immune system reaction that is hard to avoid ie anaphylaxis! Though intolerances pose no immediate threat to your health they definitely impact on your quality of life.
With just a lock of your hair, you can unlock the underlying cause of your discomfort.
For over 30 years hair analysis has been employed as one of the most non-invasive, comprehensive and effective methods of identifying possible food, additive and environmental irritant reactions. These are some of the biggest contributors to systemic dysfunction, stress, disease, and discomfort in your body. Your natural health provider uses this information to correct your diet and restore good health. They understand that the knowledge and sense of personal empowerment that patients gain from the information received through hair analysis is life-changing.
With a definitive cause comes a definitive and targeted treatment and therefore greater healing. If you want to discuss hair analysis and how it will be of benefit to you, contact your naturopath today.
I wonder if in another 2500 years it will be said: “All disease begins in the gut”, and “The cause of the disease is found in the hair”.
