Food Sensitivities Testing – by Hair Sample

Hair testing is a simple and non invasive way of finding out what foods and environmental substances may be impacting your health.
A wide variety of substances can be tested including foods, additives, preservatives and environmental allergens; over 100 test vials are analysed with each test The testing requires only a small amount of hair from the nape of the neck and can be done for adults, children and babies.

How is the testing done?

The testing is carried out using an EAV machine; this measures the changes in electromagnetic energy when the hair sample is exposed to various test samples.

EAV technology was first developed in Europe over thirty years ago by a German physician named Reinhold Voll and EAV stands for Electro Acupuncture according to Voll.

How does this kind of testing compare with Skin prick tests and Blood testing for allergies?

These kinds of tests are totally different and can not be compared.

EAV testing does not imply an allergy is present and further testing through a medical practitioner may need to be carried out.

What are the strengths of Hair testing?

It is non- invasive.

It can be performed on clients of any age.

A wide variety of irritants can be tested, from foods and preservatives to environmental chemicals.

Any substance may be tested: you can send samples that you would like tested along with the hair.

What are the limitations of Hair testing?

Hair testing is measuring changes in electromagnetic resonance and due to this, if a food has not been con­sumed for a number of weeks it may not appear as a reaction, this is because the vibration of that food is no longer present in the electromagnetic field of the client.

If foods are already being avoided in the diet they may not show sensitivity with EAV testing and if a food is being avoided due to severe allergic reaction this food must continue to be avoided.

Does it matter if the hair sample is coloured or treated in some way?

No, this does not interfere with the testing.

Can you test babies? Yes, babies can be tested. If they are fully breast fed then the mother may need to adjust her diet with the help of her practitioner.

How much hair do you need?

Only a small amount of hair is needed, approx a piece 4cm long and 1cm wide. If there is not much hair then you can take smaller clippings to make up this approx amount. It is best to take the hair from the nape of the neck close to the scalp. If there is no hair on the head then arm, chest or pubic hair may be used.

Why do you need to know so much information about the client to do the test?

This allows me to work more closely with you and make suggestions if further testing may be of benefit, for example: testing of supplements or skin care products.
