- 5Strands Affordable Testing offers 4 different types of tests for adults and children: (1) Food Intolerances (2) Environmental Intolerances (3) Nutritional Imbalances (4) Metal & Mineral Imbalances. This is a simple at home test kit using a hair sample collection method. Testing results take 7-10 days after the hair sample has been received at the processing center.
- 5Strands utilizes bioresonance technology that will identify temporary imbalances in the body that may be causing symptoms such as upset stomach, headaches, bloating, joint pain, skin issues, constipation, or diarrhea. These are non-life threatening responses and can take anywhere from several hours or several days to appear. Unlike an allergy, intolerances do not involve the immune system.
- The Food Intolerance Test covers proteins, grains, fruits, vegetables, beverages, dairy, fats, seafood, spices, sweeteners, and additives. Of the 600+ items tested, the results will show only the items you registered an intolerance to. The intolerances are listed into 3 levels based on the response upon exposure. Utilizing the items that register a Level 3 response will create the recommended 6-8 week elimination guideline.
- The Environmental Intolerance Test covers fabrics, cleaning materials, trees, grasses, flowers, dust mites and chemical additives. Of the 190+ items tested, the results will show only the items you registered an intolerance to. These intolerances are listed in levels of response upon exposure to each item. It is difficult to eliminate these items, however these results will assist you in raising your awareness to these triggers.
- The Nutrition Test will indicate which of the key vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and amino acids the body is not absorbing properly from your food and/or supplements. The Metals & Minerals test will indicate your body’s ability to process and eliminate the items tested. Unlike blood testing or HTMA testing, it will not provide you with a physical measurement of the amount found in the body.
