The testing process is simple and painless due to utilizing a HAIR sample. Intolerance reactions are not life threatening and have a delayed onset with symptoms appearing several hours or days after ingestion or exposure. Common symptoms include eczema, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, pain, inflammation, or weight problems. In addition to the possible 650 food and environmental items, 5Strands® can also test for exposure to 50 metals & minerals and 115 nutritional deficiencies. This comprehensive test can be utilized as a screening tool to allow you to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes. "Our mission is to empower families with a voice about their own health care and that of their pets. We strive to fill the void of consumer-driven needs with our affordable testing."[/mTheme_welcome][vc_video link="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAcj9uoAXVU&t=5s" title="Meet The 5Strands Team"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width="stretch_row_content_no_spaces" el_class="homecatsClass"][vc_column][mTheme_products width="1/6" product_group="recent_products" product_orderby="date" product_order="DESC" max_items="6" title="Our products" description="Testing Food & Environmental Intolerances, Metals/ Minerals & Nutritional Deficiencies" feature_list="%5B%7B%22content%22%3A%22%3Ca%20href%3D%5C%22%23%5C%22%3Ehello%3C%2Fa%3E%22%7D%2C%7B%22content%22%3A%22%3Ca%20href%3D%5C%22%23%5C%22%3Ehello%3C%2Fa%3E%22%7D%2C%7B%22content%22%3A%22%3Ca%20href%3D%5C%22%23%5C%22%3Ehello%3C%2Fa%3E%22%7D%2C%7B%22content%22%3A%22%3Ca%20href%3D%5C%22%23%5C%22%3Ehello%3C%2Fa%3E%22%7D%2C%7B%22content%22%3A%22%3Ca%20href%3D%5C%22%23%5C%22%3Ehello%3C%2Fa%3E%22%7D%5D" ids="202,200,203,231,232,233" parallax_bg="2215" product_cat_slugs="intolerance-test-for-cats, adult-deluxe, intolerance-test-for-dogs, standard-package-adult, food-intolerance, nutritional-deficiency-test"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class="section section-nutrition-philosophy"][vc_column][mTheme_titles styles="style-v4" title="Adults and Children"][/mTheme_titles][vc_row_inner el_class="vs-text"][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][mTheme_titles styles="style-v4" title="ALLERGY SYMPTOMS" el_class="allrgy_tested_title_hed"](5Strands testing DOES NOT provide answers for the symptoms below)[/mTheme_titles][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_column_text]
