5Strands® Affordable Testing provides a simple at home testing kit to determine the food and environmental substances that may cause non-IgE mediated reactions, known as INTOLERANCES. 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.
