Welcome to 5Strands Affordable Testing

5Strands Affordable Testing offers 4 different types of test for people and pets:
(1) Food Intolerances
(2) Environmental Intolerances
(3) Nutritional Imbalance
(4) Metal & Mineral Imbalances.

5Strands utilzes a hair sample collection method and bioresonance technology to identify temporary imbalances causing symptoms such as:
– Upset stomach
– Headaches                                                  – Paw biting
– Bloating                                                      – Excessive hair loss
– Joint pain                                                    – Hot spots
– Water retention                                          – Itching

The Food Test includes key proteins, grains, fruits, vegetables, sweeteners, preservatives, gluten, lactose,  and synthetic additives.
The Environmental Test includes items such as cleaning materials, fabrics, pollen, trees, grasses, lotions, chemicals, fleas and dust mites.
You will receive a comprehensive report indicating the items that you or your pet registered an intolerance to.

5Strands also provides an imbalance test for nutritional items, as well as metal & minerals.
The Nutrition Test will indicate which of the key vitamins, minerals, and amino acids the body is not absorbing properly.
The Metals & Minerals Test will indicate your bodies ability to process and eliminate the items tested.

Testing results will be delivered via email 7-10 days after the hair sample is received by the 5Strands processing center. Your results will be delivered via email. Don’t be overwhelmed, take a deep breath, and be excited to start your journey to better health. Our incredible customer support team is accessible via email or phone to assist with any questions.
For each type of testing purchased, you will receive a report that consists of all the items you or your pet measured an intolerance or imbalance to. 5Strands has a set threshold of significance, so not every item tested will make the report. The items that do, will be placed into a severity of response upon exposure category ( level 3, 2, 1 ). You will also be provided a separate attached pdf with all the items tested to cross reference.
5Strands does not provide testing for IgE or IgG mediated responses (true allergy involving the immune system). Unlike HTMA or Blood Testing, it will not provide you with a physical amount measured within the body. This report is to be utilized as a 60-90 day elimination guideline to allow these temporary imbalances to restore optimal vitality.

Customer Testimonies 


Purchased this test for my dog, because he would always behave differently when I would change his food. Come to find out through the test, that he is allergic to fish. I no longer purchase any food that contains fish and now he is great. I would like to thank the makers of the pet intolerance test. Would highly recommend this product.

My dog has been experiencing itchy, red, scanned skin recently. It wasn’t anything that was too concerning but we were monitoring it to make sure it didn’t get any worse. I figured it was some sort of allergic reaction and I was correct, after reviewing our results from this test. My dog was intolerant to the chicken in her food we were giving her. We’ve recently switched food brands, hoping that works!


I was skeptical but desperate to find out why my 3-year old cat had chronic diarrhea. I tried switching foods, a prescription diet and all kinds of tests and ultrasounds. The cat was diagnosed with IBD but without a clue as to the source of her condition. On a whim I bought this test and found out my cat is highly intolerant of “guard gum, agar” which are (like xantham gum) is found in almost all the grain free canned food I buy. So I experimented with a raw diet (Natures Instinct Raw Bites) and within 2 days she had solid stool! If it wasn’t for this test, this cat would’ve been placed on steroid medication! I’m so happy I bought this test!

I purchased this test because my dog was constantly scratching and the vet could not figure out what was causing it. She had been on steroid medications for several months and nothing was helping. After receiving the test results, it showed that my dog has an intolerance to beef which was the main ingredient in her dog food. Within 2 weeks of changing her dog food, the itching has stopped! This test has been a life saver! I would definitely recommend this product to any pet owner.

We have an 8 1/2 year old Olde English Bulldog. She had been having back to back allergic reactions both food and environmental based across almost 90 days. We had her allergy tested with the company who gave us wonderful fast results and very clear findings. This is a hair follicle DNA test for which she didn’t have to be off her px to take. Results came back in a week! The company offers test kit on Amazon and you send it back to their research labs in Atlanta. I highly recommend this test option if your pet is too ill to wait to be off meds for a blood allergy test and seeing a dog allergist is not a viable option. The best part is the test results come back in a week!

Aaron Stockle

Definitely recommend! My pup was having really bad diarrhea after we switched brands of dog food to a less expensive brand. We heard about this test from a friend and decided to try it out. The test came back that our dog was having a reaction to the fish in the food which was one of the main ingredients.
