Welcome To 5 Strands® Affordable Testing
5 Strands® Affordable Testing provides a simple HAIR analysis test that measures food and environmental substances that cause non-IgE mediated reactions, known as INTOLERANCES. Reactions have a delayed onset with symptoms appearing several hours or days after ingestion or exposure and lasting a longer period of time. Common symptoms include eczema, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and in more severe cases, pain, inflammation or weight problems.
Our simple, non-invasive testing can quickly identify if your body is intolerant to over 650 food and environmental items. We can also test for metal/minerals and nutritional deficiencies. Our list of items tested is the most comprehensive of any test on the U.S. market today. This screening tool can help you make the dietary, environmental and lifestyle changes necessary to allow your symptoms to improve.
5 Strands® Affordable Testing scans your hair sample (10-15 strands) using bio -resonance technology and provides an extensive, easy-to-understand report. You can expect to receive your results within 5 – 7 days after the sample arrives at the processing center.
Be aware that IgE (Immunoglobulin E) allergies, which are caused by the body’s immune system, are NOT measured by 5 Strands® Affordable Testing. This type of reaction, which represents only 2% of all allergic reactions, occurs within minutes of ingestion or exposure. Common symptoms range from hives, rash and swelling of the lips or face to swelling of the throat, wheezing, sudden shortness of breath and other potentially life-threatening reactions. IgE-mediated allergies are diagnosed through a blood test or skin prick test by healthcare professionals.
