Testing for Incompatible Foods and Household Items

by Oct 25, 2017Health & Well-being

Have you heard of Hair Testing 500 Items for Incompatible Foods and Household Items?

At Bargara Beach Holistic Health Centre, we have access to many different testing methods to assess your body effectively, such as Hair Mineral and Heavy Metal Testing.  However, one of our favourites is Hair Testing 500 Items.  This test is different to the mineral and heavy metal testing as it looks at 500 normal whole foods and household items.  It is a test I have had the best results with so far.

This testing is the result of more than 30 years of research and development.  Behind the test lies the principle that “dis-ease” (suffering) in your body is aggravated by certain foods and/or products interfering with your immune system and preventing it from working properly. The test results will highlight which foods and products are right for YOUR particular body and which are not.


It is a non-intrusive test which is ideal for children as well as people of all ages, especially those that would like to improve their health by working with their diet first before introducing supplements.  Some retail supplements are also tested in the list.

As a Naturopath, I also have access to IgG testing which is done through blood and assesses intolerances.  This test looks at 93 items.  Being a blood test it is generally more accepted by GP’s but is still considered alternative to the medical system – which does not test for intolerances (a doctor can request IgE testing which is for allergies).  Comparatively, the hair test is more comprehensive and affordable.

Hair Sampling

With the Hair Testing 500 Items, hair can be taken from any part of the body and saliva can be used for babies or people with no hair.  Coloured hair can also be used for this test without affecting the results.

Once we have your results we can email the report straight to you.  The report includes a program for you to follow for 6 months at which time you can retest ($187) to see which items have corrected and if you can reintroduce them.  Results are seen by week 4 with an average of 60-80 percent improvement in many symptoms.

This is a great way to individualise dietary advice.  And we are finding it very effective in assisting with balancing weight, particularly prior to our detox program.

Some (and definitely not all) of the areas that we are getting particularly good results with are:  Bloating, Psoriasis, Rosacea, Indigestion, Heartburn, ADHD and children’s behaviour issues, Asthma, Diarrhoea, Sinusitis, Constipation, Hay fever, Headaches and Migraines, Arthritis, Low Immunity, Skin Rashes, Eczema
