Our hair collection process is fast, easy, and painless, allowing you to collect your sample and mail it to the 5Strands lab straight from the comfort of your own home. No more painful blood draws, expensive trips to the doctor or waiting weeks/months for your test results.
Collect 10-15 strands of head or body hair. Brush with a clean comb/brush, cut, or gently pull. Whatever is easiest for you and your pet. If hair samples are less than 1" in length, we require an increase sample size of 20-25 strands of hair
Place your hair sample into the provided parchment paper bag. Place the parchment paper bag into the included anti-static bag, then seal shut.
Next, place the anti-static bag back inside the 5Strands box, then place the box into the provided poly return shipping bag. Attach the included prepaid shipping label on top of the poly bag and it's ready to mail to our 5Strands lab for analysis.
5Strands leverages bioresonance technology to test your body’s electrical resonance to several food and/or environmental items. For many people, some of these items may contribute to sensitivities or reactions in the gut and brain.
It is important to understand that the accuracy of the results is directly related to the amount of interaction and diligence that is given implementing the results. Luckily, 5Strands removes the guesswork and makes your elimination diet and lifestyle easier by providing the exact list of items that need to take priority in the elimination plan.

"Hello All, I am a Certiﬁed Functional Nutrition Counselor & Nurse Practitioner and I think this type of testing is amazing!!! The amount of results that you receive are incredible for the price. If I were to order this amount of testing for my clients via any lab, it would cost an easy $10,000, not even exaggerating. I have ordered for myself in the past (nowhere near this amount of nutrition & food sensitivities) and can not believe how much labs charge for each test - they just nickel and dime.The science behind this type of testing is sound and accurate. Because really, there needs to be a better, more aﬀordable way to actually empower people to become truly healthy. Food is one of the BIGGEST reasons we all have daily symptoms that are a mystery. Having these non-hassle results on hand will give you the knowledge you need to make those imperative changes in your lifestyle and diet."

"We ﬁnd clients are more willing to do this test as opposed to the blood test for allergies because it is more aﬀordable and less invasive. Then, we use the results to help the clients ﬁnd a diet that their pets can more easily tolerate. We deﬁnitely ﬁnd the 5Strands tests to be a valuable tool."

Here are some lives forever changed thanks to 5Strands
The 2 biggest changes I saw in getting tested was my emotional wellbeing and my digestion; when I am supplementing correctly and avoiding inﬂammatory foods my anxiety is greatly reduced and I don’t have any digestive issues (bloating, etc.). With these changes came motivation and weight loss which was amazing! I got such peace of mind knowing I was eating the correct things for my body speciﬁcally. I would recommend this test to all of my loved ones and I can honestly say it was a life-changing experience for me!
After one week my bloating was almost gone. It was by far the quickest symptom that stopped. After about 2 weeks my headaches started occurring less often. Then after about 3 weeks my workouts and sports started feeling enjoyable again. At about 3 weeks all my rashes were gone. At about a month I noticed that my headaches were gone and my fatigue was way better too!
The turnaround within those two weeks was incredible. The ﬁrst week, I started to notice that Daisy was sleeping better. She would play with the other dogs during the day due to having more energy from the food I was feeding her. Elaine had told me that I should watch for behavioral changes ﬁrst and sure enough they took place. The physical healing started on day 12 of the raw diet. The before and after photo is from 32 days after implementing the Aﬀordable Pet Test results. Over the 32 days, I was able to watch Daisy transform back into her old self.
