Hair Testing - finding foods and products compatible with your body

Hair Bio-Compatibility Food and Product testing is the result of over 30 years of research and development by a Queensland based natural health practitioner and his staff. I have been using this in clinic with most of my clients for over two years.

It's all about YOU!

  • Are you sick of guessing what foods you can and can't eat?
  • Are you only eating certain foods from 'select' food groups?
  • Is your digestion needing some love and support?
  • Do you have food anxiety when eating out or catching up with family and/or friends?
  • Are you suffering from pain and discomfort in your tummy when/after eating? 
  • Does your skin flare up (acne, eczema, psoriasis) and you're not sure what foods or products can be contributing to this?
  • Are you feeling tired? Flat? Exhausted?
  • Are your hormones out of whack?
  • Do you feel stressed? Anxious?
  • How is your memory? Brain fog can be food related.
  • Are you suffering from joint aches and pain?

I will admit it has been a game changer in my clients progress as it has taken a lot of the guess work out as to what foods they can eat and what they need to avoid. Food is medicine is one of the basic Naturopathic principles that I love to follow in clinic with my clients. 

The Technology behind Bio-Compatibility testing

The technique is based on the way in which the foods and products we use affect the flow of energy through the body. If the energy systems within the body are compromised in any way by a food/product that is biologically incompatible, the cells cannot function optimally. This may lead to an immune response, inflammation, and ultimately reactive symptoms.

Using hair samples, Bio-Compatibility testing identifies the influence (either positive or negative) that each of a wide range of foods and products has on the delivery and storage systems in each cell. In this way, we are then able to determine which foods and products should be avoided and which should be consumed/used.

All we need is a small sample of hair from the nape of your neck, (body hair can be taken as well as saliva.) The equipment used to test your hair or saliva is calibrated to suit each hair sample. Dyed hair can be tested too!

If you have no body hair we take a saliva sample. This is done for infants or health conditions such as Alopecia, hormonal imbalances or if you have had cancer treatment.



Behind the program lies the principle that 'dis-ease' in your body can  be aggravated by certain foods and/or products interfering with the body and preventing it from working properly. This causes an inflammatory response which can increase the stress load on your body as it is trying to decrease inflammation to heal your illnesses. Please note this is NOT an allergy test.

What I love about this is that it tests regular 'normal' foods, drinks and products that we buy at the supermarket. There are popular foods and products that are included from health food shops as well. 

The Bio-Compatibility System complements and integrates easily with any other therapy or medication by simply removing foods and household items that are testing negative for your particular body.

I have been using The Bio-Compatibility Food and Product testing with most of my clients in clinic for the past two years. 

I have used The Bio-Compatibility Test on myself as well, after my SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) treatment as I like to try tests and products out before prescribing them to my clients. I have to admit I was so excited about all the foods that I could now eat and I had no reactions.

I also recommend my SIBO clients go onto this as part of my Gut Health Matters Program after their SIBO treatment has been completed as it is so important to include foods (whole foods) from all of our food groups as this creates and makes a very healthy gut microbiome! 

This test is suitable for people needing some love and support for their digestive system, especially if you don't have SIBO. This is great for leaky gut syndrome along with bloated tummies or if you experience digestive discomfort.

My women's health clients are also loving this as it is gently bringing their bodies back into balance. Most of my female clients love that in most cases they are still able to have either a glass of wine or another alcoholic beverage when they are out with friends or on the weekends. 

The children that I work with in clinic are also responding well as they can eat foods that are allowed in our preschool and school environments. It allows so much more dietary freedom and they are also getting great results to their health conditions.
