Why should you take the Vegan Food Intolerance test?
This intolerance test uses the latest in biotechnology to test 100 vegan food items and identify which of those items cause you a reaction due to having an intolerance. An intolerance percentage level for each item is calculated so that you can easily determine which foods you are intolerant to most. The items tested cover a wide variety of common vegan foods such as asparagus, hazelnuts, yeast, buckwheat and many more. Why don’t you take a look at the full list of vegan foods tested?
Experienced & Accredited
The testing facility conducting this test is ISO 9001:2015 certified and has tested more than 400,000 samples in over 38 countries. Scientists working at this laboratory have over 10 years of experience with helping people restore their body’s natural balance. In addition, the Mars III (Multiple Analytical Resonance Systems) bio-resonance equipment used at the facility for testing is manufactured and recognised as a medical scanning device class 11a according to ISO EN 13485.
Easy & Non-Invasive
No testing kit is sent out with this test, it is as easy as it gets! This test only requires a few of your hairs which need to be sent with a downloadable submission form. The hair sample required can be collected from the comfort of your own home! Unlike blood and urine tests which can be affected by recent food intake or stress, hair testing is unaffected by the tested person’s most recent activity and is able to assess one’s health covering a much longer period of time.
Fast & Informative Results
The report detailing your vegetarian food intolerance results is emailed to you within 2 to 5 working days only from receipt of samples at the laboratory. You will also receive a free 19-page comprehensive guide which will further explain your results and help you feel better with easy-to-follow hints and tips from a team of nutritionists. It does not stop there, you also get a 6-week food diary planner to help you optimise your diet accordingly!
Sample Collection for Intolerance Testing
It is important to keep in mind that no testing kit is sent out with the Vegan Intolerance test. The hair sample collection process is relatively simple and easy. Nonetheless, we suggest that you read carefully the below instructions for a successful collection.
• Any form of hair from your body can be tested
• Hair dye or treatments do not affect the test results
• If the hair is longer than one inch, we only require 5 individual strands of hair
• Ideally, samples should include the hair root even though it is not always possible
• If cutting the hair, try to cut it as close to the root as possible
• Once the sample is collected, place it in a small sealable bag ensuring it remains dry and secure
• Do not send the hair sample in metal foil or any other metallic packaging
• Place the hair samples in a secure envelope or postage wallet before sending it to the address provided
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between an allergy and an intolerance?
Allergies are more severe than intolerances and their reaction is usually felt immediately. An allergy also tends to be with you for life. Contrarily, intolerances are normally less severe in nature and can change over time. In addition, the symptoms of an intolerance are not immediate, manifesting anywhere from 10 minutes to 48 hours after the food has been consumed.
My hair is very short, can I still take the test?
The hair sample does not have to be from the head. The hair sample for this test can be from any part of the body including the leg, arm or chest.
My hair is dyed, will this affect the test results?
No, the test is completed using the composition of the hair sample so hair colouring will have no effect on the results.
What do my results actually mean?
The items on the list that display a colour indicate a minimum intolerance level of 85% and are graded as low, medium or high within these parameters. It is common for a food that has never caused you an issue before to start doing so. It depends on your diet and habits. If for reasons of poor immune system levels or poor diet, you have too much of one particular element in your system, your body will have trouble dealing with these increased levels. The side effects of this imbalance are known as intolerance.
