Food Biocompatibility Testing


Food biocompatibility testing is a simple, non-invasive test that requires a small sample of your hair to identify what foods (and household products) are suitable for you and which are potentially causing harm and keeping you unwell.

This test takes the guesswork out of trying to figure out which foods are causing problems, and believe me you WILL be surprised!


Common signs and symptoms of food intolerance/incompatibility are:

  • Fatigue & brain fog
  • Anxiety & depression
  • Headaches & migraines
  • Skin issues: acne, eczema, psoriasis & rashes
  • Chronic hayfever or sinus issues
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Joint pain & inflammation
  • And of course, Digestive issues: bloating, constipation, loose stools, IBS, reflux, flatulence.

This test can be purchased without a consultation. Once you have purchased online, you will receive an email with instructions on how to complete the test.

After sending your hair sample to me, you will receive your results via email in approximately 2-3 weeks.

Frequently asked questions:

How do I complete the test?

After you purchase the test, you will receive an email with instructions (check your spam/promotions folder if you don’t see it within 5 minutes). You will need to cut a small sample of your hair and place it in a zip lock bag, then place it in an envelope and send it to me. I will send you an email with your results when it is ready.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

How much hair do I need to provide?

Approximately ½ tsp cut from the nape of neck – Try to get as close to your scalp as possible as that is the most recent hair growth and most accurate to your current presentation. It does not matter if your hair is dyed for this test.

Please note:

  • Hair can be from anywhere on the body if head isn’t suitable (leg, arm or even pubic hair is okay)
  • Coloured hair is okay
  • No need to wash hair first
  • Be sure to place in small ziplock bag with no bits sticking out
  • Use Express post where possible for fastest turnaround

*If hair isn’t available (eg. for babies), contact me as it can still be done using saliva.

When will my test results be ready?

After sending your hair sample to me, you will receive your results via email in approximately 2-3 weeks.

How does the test work?

The equipment works on the electrical systems of the body. Every cell in the body requires electrical simulation to function correctly. Incompatible foods and products can interfere with this electrical stimulation. 

All cells in creation have their own electro – magnetic signature. This electromagnetic field in the hair and the electromagnetic field of each food and product are brought together and either attract (COMPATIBLE) or repel (INCOMPATIBLE). The equipment is calibrated to a level which displays this on a computerised graph through a unique system of equipment and software.

Is this an allergy test?

No, this is a Compatibility test which tests for food and products that are Incompatible or Compatible with the individual.

How long until my symptoms resolve?

Usually symptom relief can start to occur in 3-10 days as the inflammation settles. By the end of 4 weeks the body is in the repair process stage. Results may vary depending on the severity of symptoms. It is advised to follow the plan for at least 6 months to get the full benefit.
