What exactly is an intolerance?
An intolerance is the body’s inability to digest an item properly, whether this is a food intolerance or an environmental factor (a non-food intolerance). Intolerances can occur due to a number of reasons, the two most common are:

The body is lacking the necessary digestive enzymes(s) for the certain food and therefore cannot digest the item properly or efficiently take the nutrients from it. A sensitivity resulting from over-consumption  or overexposure.

Many symptoms are the result of a sensitivity to a particular item. A sensitivity can occur from over overconsumption or overexposure of an item.

Intolerances is increasing. 

The amount of people suffering with intolerances is increasing. Reports indicate that up to half the USA could be affected with one intolerance or another. As well as causing physical discomfort and misery, symptoms may impact on a person’s mental health and in many cases, prevent them from living a normal life.
Obtaining a detailed diagnosis of the root cause can be a struggle. Most tests are currently limited to food items only but more often than not the actual intolerance is related to the chemicals used to process our daily food.
Intolerance symptoms might include digestive discomfort such as feeling bloated, excess gas and even diarrhoea, as well as fatigue, headaches and skin irritations such as eczema. This one-step tests is based on a wide range of approximately 650 items including food and non-food items.
Identifying the potential items to which you are intolerant is vital. You can then take steps to alter your diet to try and avoid situations where certain chemicals are commonly found. Many people believe they may be gluten intolerant or lactose intolerant, but after testing, find it is another substance causing the problems.

Hair testing

Hair testing was discovered over 25 years ago as scientific studies showed hair was like a tape recording being both stable and also permanently embedding the data in the hair. Hair testing is now used regularly in the fields of drug testing, forensic science, nutritional and mineral analysis and hormone testing. Scientists see hair analysis as one of the most exciting areas for development due to the samples and history lasting much longer than blood and urine but also for it being non-evasive and accessible to everyone.
Recent developments include the use of hair analysis in IVF treatment. The equipment They complete the test on a registered class 11a medical device according to ISO EN 13485.
Other medical equipment in the Class 11 level include x-ray machines, ultrasound equipment & radiology equipment.
They have been developing and improving their test since 2008. In this time they have completed over 250,000 tests in 26 countries around the world. They have over 180 active partners including medical practitioners and respected clinics.
Hair analysis is approved worldwide including the FDA and is now seen as a serious alternative to blood testing.
