Hair Compatibility Testing - 500 items

Each individual has their own nutritional and energy requirements. Have you noticed that some foods give you good energy while others seem to drag you down and seem to aggravate existing symptoms? Compatibility Hair Analysis is about finding foods and household products that suit the individual and follows the Naturopathic principle, “Feed the body correctly and allow the body to repair itself”.

 

This test covers a list of 500 items including most food groups, bathroom, laundry, health foods, gluten-free, kitchen products and more. Using a hair sample, Compatibility Testing identifies the influence (either positive or negative) that each food and/or product has on the individual’s body to determine which foods and products will need to be avoided and which ones can be used.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is an analytical test that measures the mineral composition of hair. It is a safe and non-invasive test that reflects the level of nutrient and toxic elements in body tissue. The HTMA provides valuable information on existing health conditions. Further, it helps with early detection and prevention of conditions, as mineral imbalances are often seen before symptoms occur.

HTMA can reveal mineral deficiencies and excess, heavy metal toxicity, metabolic rate, immune, mental health, nervous system imbalance, liver and kidney stress, diabetes and insulin resistance, energy levels and fatigue, cardiovascular health, adrenal and thyroid function.

The GI Map

The GI map is a comprehensive stool analysis designed to positively identify common pathogens, and assess the most relevant dysbiotic bacteria/yeast/parasites. In addition, it evaluates important keystone species of bacteria, which allows assessment of the overall health of the microbiome.

MTHFR Gene Test

The MTHFR gene, technically referred to as Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase, is a key enzyme required to metabolise homocysteine. Mutations of the MTHFR gene may cause elevated blood levels of homocysteine. High homocysteine levels in the blood have been associated with coronary artery disease, venous thrombosis & stroke, type 2 diabetes, obesity, neural tube defects, recurrent miscarriage, autism spectrum disorders, stillbirths, depression & other mood disorders.

Pyrrole Disorder

The condition Pyroluria may be a common undiagnosed feature of many emotional and behavioural disorders. Pyroluria is a condition which causes the body to over-produce a group of compounds known as kryptopyrroles. The measurement of urinary kryptopyrroles may be indicated for individuals with behavioural and emotional disorders such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Pyroluria is a stress-related condition and when symptoms such as anxiety, mood swings, behavioural problems etc are brought on by stressors, testing for urinary kryptopyrroles should be considered.
