Food Biocompatibility Testing

Food Biocompatibility Testing is a simple and non-invasive hair test that helps to identify foods, beverages, household and personal care products that are compatible with your body or causing inflammation and impairing your body’s ability to heal.

Food Biocompatibility Testing

The Food Biocompatibility Testing uses a small sample of your hair to identify the influence (positive or negative) that a wide range of foods, beverages and household products have on a cellular level. Behind the testing lies the principle that illness in your body can be aggravated by certain foods and/or products interfering and preventing it from working properly. 

While we can eliminate some of the common aggravating foods such as dairy and gluten, the Food Biocompatibility Testing allows us to test over 600+ items and determine which foods and products should be avoided and which should be consumed/used. This helps to identify a range of different foods that may be exacerbating your symptoms. These may even be healthy foods you would never consider such as fish, broccoli or linseeds. This is not an allergy test. The Food Biocompatibility test is used to identify foods that are compatible or incompatible with your body. 

Feeding your body correctly may assist your immune system to deal with other issues more effectively. This means, by following the 6 month program, your immune system gets to deal with each issue in a way that works best for your body.
