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.
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.
The test is super easy
It involves cutting a small half a match stick length and width of hair off the ends, putting it into a marked sealed bag, filling out the application form with your symptom list and payment details and sending that to me, you can also purchase straight off this website from the shop, or call me for payment over the phone.
The results are then emailed to you within 14 days (normally 7), and we will schedule a consultation to discuss all of your results, how to best implement the program and also recommend what other naturopathic treatments you may need. We aim to offer you a complete picture of your individual requirements and a path to better health. You will have a solid foundation for the development of a personalized treatment program just for you.
This test is available to people of all ages, including babies, and also to animals; and you DO NOT need to have a consultation in clinic. You can simply download the Hair Test Application, complete page 1, and return it with your hair sample to Advanced Natural Health 4/2 Finucane Rd Capalaba 4157

The Technology Behind Bio-Compatibility Testing
This test 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.
Once this inflammation accumulates in a certain area, it is given a name.
- In the joints, it can lead to or aggravate arthritic pains.
- In the respiratory tract, it can cause symptoms of aggravated sinus, asthma and excess mucus.
- In the nervous system, it can cause or aggravate headaches, migraine, depression, tiredness and add to ADHD.
- In the skin, it can cause or aggravate rashes, eczema, psoriasis and hives.
1. What does the test involve?
A small hair or saliva sample is taken from the patient and sent, with the symptoms checklist, to our testing centre for analysing against 600 items. An individual report is generated that shows the foods/products that are bio-incompatible with the patient (resulting in discomfort and disease) and those that are biocompatible (promoting health and wellbeing).
2. What will be tested?
Our standard test list consists of over 600 LOCAL foods and household products (we can test in most countries, having many clients in Europe, New Zealand and America) — including all food groups, and bathroom, laundry, and kitchen products.
This includes common local brands (specific to each country in which the test is conducted) found in supermarkets and health food stores. The test covers both raw and cooked food — each item is tested in the way it is usually consumed. We also have two more speciality lists — one for testing babies (we have had a lot of success helping mums and babies with troublesome rashes etc) and another for pets

3. Is it safe?
The test is completely non-invasive and painless. It involves only the collection of a hair (from any part of the body) or a saliva sample — no needles or blood samples — and has no harmful side effects. It does not matter if your hair is coloured, grey or dirty!.
4. How are the results presented?
A comprehensive 17-page report is generated after each test and emailed to you straight away, normally within 7 days. We strongly suggest you make your included 30min hair test consultation as soon as possible as we want you to get the best results possible.
Note: The hair test can just be a
5. What will the results indicate?
The report lists those foods and products which the individual CAN eat and those which he/she should AVOID.
The basis for the programme is simple — feed the body correctly with biocompatible foods and the immune system is freed up to deal with any problems more effectively. This means each symptom is dealt with in a way that works best for your patient’s body.
Note: This is NOT a generic program: each person is unique and will have a different set of responses, which will result in a different set of symptoms and a different programme to follow.
6. The test is expensive!
Let’s compare tests
Doctors have access to IGE testing which is allergy testing that will generally pick up dust and grass concerns.

Every Naturopathic patient at Advanced Natural Health and other leading clinics across Australia starts with the hair test. We are all about getting great results fast
7. Why does coffee comes up RED?
Well, wouldn’t you love to know if something you have every day is driving your ill health? This is a 6-month elimination program. You will need to commit to removing all of the RED items for 6 months. We can then retest at this point to see what items you have healed from and can then add back into your diet. Remember this is about what you can have. A massive list of foods that are safe for you, to bring your body alive!
8. How much hair do you take?
Only half a matchstick length and width, not noticeable at all!

We see a lot of Pineapple, Strawberries, Chicken, White Bread, Onion, White Wine, Cola, Milk, Egg come up in RED on many test results. The great thing about this test is that we will give you many alternatives and figure out a meal plan when you have your
