Hair / Saliva Analysis 600 Items
Food intolerances are extremely common and can be accompanied by unwanted symptoms such as eczema, acne, bloating or low immunity. The Bio-Compatibility hair analysis can identify 500 common local foods found at Woolworths, Coles & Aldi supermarkets, health food stores as well as different bathroom, laundry & kitchen products.
This test can show which foods and products are right for your body and which are not. It can identify the underlying cause of your irritating symptoms and may be helpful for:
- Skin conditions, eczema, psoriasis, acne, rashes, itchy, dry and inflamed skin
- Irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation and poor digestion
- Arthritis, headaches and migraines and autoimmune diseases
- Fatigue, sleep disturbances, low energy, foggy memory and poor concentration
- Behavioural issues with children
- Reflux, colic, sinus and hay fever
- Recurring infections, illnesses and disease
The test is suitable for babies, children, and adults, with the option of using head hair, body hair, or saliva. All members of your family, including pets
can be tested in a safe and non-invasive way. A small hair sample can be taken and posted to the laboratory for processing. Coloured hair is okay.
Results take approximately 3-4 weeks. Once processed, you will be emailed a report and receive a FREE 15-minute call to discuss the results and how to implement the changes.
For best results, a full naturopathic consultation is recommended. From your results, we will be able to develop an effective, individualised treatment plan for you.

WHAT OUR HAIR ANALYSIS TEST COVERS?
Our standard Australian test covers a list of over 500 standard list — including all food groups, bathroom, laundry, and kitchen products.
This includes common local brands (specific to each country in which the test is conducted) found in supermarkets and health food stores. Each item is tested in the form it is usually consumed (both raw and cooked where applicable).
We have two more speciality lists — one for testing Australian Baby and another for pets.
We are also able to perform an additional tests for compatibility against your patient’s pet’s fur/feathers provided a sample of the relevant pet’s fur/feathers is provided.
HOW IS THE TEST PERFORMED?
A small hair sample is taken and sent for processing. If the hair is not available, a saliva sample (usually for babies) can be analysed.
The 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.
Using hair samples, Bio-Compatibility testing identifies the influence (either positive or negative) that each of a wide range of foods and products has on the delivery and storage systems in each cell. In this way, we are then able to determine which foods and products should be avoided and which should be consumed/used.
A comprehensive report is available usually within 5-7 business days.
An executive summary, based on analysis of your diet and the results, is provided that outlines the foods and products to be avoided. In addition, we will give you some hints, based on feedback from clients, to more easily implement the changes in your lifestyle.
In many cases, people will experience a benefit and/or reduction in symptoms within days.
Usually, at the 4-week point, there is usually a 60-80% improvement in symptoms when compliant with the results. As the effects of intolerances can manifest over many years, to gain maximum benefit, we suggest following the recommendations for a period of at least six months before the graduated reintroduction of avoided foods.
