Frequently Asked Questions & Answers
- Why does an item appear on multiple levels of my results?
ANSWER: It's not uncommon for this type of testing to register on multiple levels. Your focus should be the items in red as these noted the highest level of intolerances.
- Why did items that you test for not appear in the report?
ANSWER: If an item we test for did not appear on your report, it means that our testing did not detect an intolerance to that item.
- Why are there items listed on my results that I’ve never eaten, drank or consumed in any way?
ANSWER: While you may not think that you've ever eaten a particular food it's possible that the protein found in that food item was used during the processing of another food item that you did eat.
- How does an item listed as an intolerance also be listed as a deficiency?

- What is the difference between a food sensitivity, allergy or intolerance?
ANSWER: The main difference between an intolerance and an allergy is that an allergy will manifest itself almost immediately. Food intolerances, on the other hand, are not as easily detected. Depending on the individual, symptoms may arrive anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days after consumption or contact. The symptoms of an intolerance can manifest in various ways. Allergies are usually life long also whereas most intolerances can be controlled by diet.
8. Does hair dyes, bleach, oil, or dirt, affect the results?
ANSWER: No. Outside contaminants do not affect the information stored int the hair.
9. What is Bioresonance Hair testing?
ANSWER: Bioresonance therapy is one of a number of procedures including homeopathy, acupuncture and other naturopathic procedures within the area of empirical healing.
Bioresonance therapy was invented in Germany in 1977 by Franz Morell and his son-in-law, engineer Erich Rasche.
The concept of bioresonance is that the machine’s electromagnetic waves create a resonance in our body’s cells which, in turn, brings about the desired effects.
BioResonance is a safe and gentle, non-invasive alternative therapeutic technique designed on the premise that all particles of matter generate electromagnetic energy.
I have a known allergy but it hasn't appeared in my results
You may have a known allergy; so let’s help you to interpret sensitivity results to this item.
Scenario 1: The item you are allergic to shows as a moderate or high reactivity item. This means that as well as a food allergy you have food sensitivity. If you have already removed this item from your diet you do not need to take any action. If you have not removed it previously, it is worth considering doing so, however we would not recommend reintroduction following the elimination diet.
Scenario 2: The item you are allergic to shows as a no reactivity item. This means that you do not have food sensitivity to this item however the result does not question or contradict the presence of your food allergy to the item. It does NOT mean you should reintroduce the item to your diet, you should respect the symptoms or test results you have had previously with regards to allergy.
Remember this test does not test for iGg ALLERGIES. You would need a blood test for that and we have that test available to you. (visit the blood testing section on our site for options)
It is common for a food item consumed in the daily diet or very frequently, to test as a moderate or high sensitivity item. This can happen with food sensitivity and may be due to the body suddenly struggling to process or breakdown particular constituents of the food. This could be caused by over consumption of a food group or could be down to an imbalance in gut bacteria or the presence of low-level inflammation in the gut.
Whatever the cause do not despair. We are talking about food sensitivity and NOT allergy; therefore completing a food elimination diet with subsequent reintroduction can help. This may mean you need to eliminate a favorite food or staple in your diet for a period of weeks but you will be able to reintroduce the item. Eliminating food items for a period of time can allow the gut time to ‘rest’ from trigger foods and the reintroduction of items can allow you to assess how a food or food group makes you feel.
In most cases carrying out an elimination diet is enough to improve symptoms and allow for a greater understanding of any foods, which aren’t agreeing with the body. It is also worth considering the nourishment of the digestive tract and addressing any gut bacteria imbalances to further improve gut function and reduce digestive symptoms.
