- Where the non-food items (especially the chemicals) are commonly found
- The nutrients your body is lacking (optional)
- The food items that these nutrients are commonly found and any illnesses or conditions that can occur due to the lack of these nutrients

My hair is dyed, will this affect the result?
No, the test is completed on the DNA of the hair sample so hair colouring will have no effect on the result.
How do I take a hair sample?
The safest way to take a hair sample is to ask someone else to help you. First brush your hair upwards to reveal the root area at the back of the head, then holding a small amount of hair between the finger and thumb, cut the hair as close to the scalp as possible (without drawing blood). If you do not have anyone to help you, using a mirror may help ensure you avoid injury.
I don’t have any hair on my head, can you still complete a test?
The hair sample does not have to be from the head, we have had eye brow hair and even the occasional pubic hair!
How much hair do I have to provide?
Only a small amount, 3-4 individual hairs. We do not require clumps of hair, although occasionally we have been sent very large amounts!
Can you test against a different specific item not included in your test?
Yes we have completed specific tests for many clients to try and help them narrow down their intolerance. This has included specific food items, hair and feathers from pets and leaves from house plants. We are currently offering this test free of charge, you just put a sample of the item you want testing in a separate bag and send it in with your hair sample. This is limited to five items per person, if you require more this can be completed at a small additional charge, please call us to discuss your requirements. We have completed tests on various drugs and chemicals, please call to discuss this before sending them through.
Why are we so cheap?
We keep our costs low and we email our reports saving on postage and stationery. This enables us to offer such a comprehensive and accurate test at the price offered.
Is there anything additional to pay?
You will have to pay for shipping the hsir sample to the processing center in Europe (UK).
I want a test completing on my 6 month year old child, can you complete it?
Yes, unfortunately the major increase in juvenile asthma and eczema has meant almost daily we are completing tests on babies and young children.
Can you complete the test on animals?
According to vets, animals especially dogs can suffer greatly from intolerances. Following requests from several vets (and pet owners) we have designed a test specifically for dogs and cats. You can order the test in the normal manner.
Where are the tests processed?
At present the tests are processed in our laboratory in UK. Once the hair sample has been received at our laboratory you will receive your results within 7-10 days.
