If you’ve taken a look around the Test My Food Sensitivity website, you’ve probably seen content about blood tests and hair tests.  If you’ve dug around a bit more, you might know the term “bioresonance” and that’s what makes the food sensitivity testing hair sample option work.  But, how does it actually, you know, work?  If you want to know more, you’re certainly in the right spot.  Here’s everything you need to know about this specialized technique for sensitivity rest results.

How bioresonance works with food sensitivity testing

First and foremost, the science behind bioresonance has existed for quite some time, though it’s application in science and medicine seems to be a bit more of a mystery.  Bioresonance testing involves using a series of pieces of equipment together to get the accurate picture and analysis of your hair strand to give you the results that you’re looking for.  These pieces could include x-ray machines, radiology equipment, and even ultrasound equipment itself.  Even though it sounds complicated, it’s thought that the testing process is actually more streamlined than blood sample testing.  

The hair is analyzed using this equipment, and a clear picture shows your sensitivities to certain foods in realtime, as recorded by your hair.  With this information unable to be covered up or hidden or even misunderstood (such as a lot of self-diagnoses), it’s nice to be able to rely on the validity of this kind of testing as far as its results.

Historically speaking, bioresonance has been used around the world for all sorts of healing purposes.  Now science is trying to catch up by using the same technique to help diagnose sensitivities to foods as well as toxins and chemicals. 

Studies show that bioresonance (aka hair analysis) is effective in detecting drug use, making it helpful in organizations that are tracking long-term use and its effects [1].  Many laboratories rely on it for its ability to go back through time and detect usage patterns and their effects for weeks or even years (depending on the hair sample).

Other than drug testing, research is promising about its ability to detect and diagnose both food sensitivities and potentially allergies (though this is still under development), particularly in those who are hypersensitive or dealing with more severe reactions [2].  Now the focus is going to be on helping the testing technique become the cure in those who are unable to do elimination diets or take standard medications for whatever reason

Why hair sample testing might be right for you

If you’re interested in using a hair sample test with the reliance on bioresonance, but you still want a little bit more convincing, never fear.  Here are just some of the many reasons that hair sample testing might be the right call when you’re looking for food sensitivity testing options that match your lifestyle.

  • It’s cheaper: Even though it uses a few pieces of specialized medical equipment, testing a hair sample is actually faster and easier than doing a blood sample kit.  As such, these kits tend to be more affordable, and you will often get the results back faster than with a blood sample kit.
  • It’s easier than needles: If you are fearful of needles — even the skin prick ones — that are used with our at-home testing kits, you’ll find the simple need to accurate snip your hair off and send it in is going to be effective and easier to handle.  Make sure that your hair meets the necessary requirements for length before ordering the kit, of course, but otherwise, enjoy the ease of sample taking!
  • It gives you long-term, historical results: The other detail that is really helpful with bioresonance is that it is designed to track your body’s reaction and symptoms over time through the story that your hair tells.  For those that seem to have strange reactions or partial ones that aren’t developed enough to be able to log effectively, this can be really helpful.

Food sensitivity testing done your way

Now that you understand the perks to going with the bioresonance method of testing, you can use this information to help you see whether or not you want to use it to get the results that you’re looking for.  If you want to go with the blood test first, you can always follow it up with the hair sample test.  Or, vice versa.  Having two unique sets of test results also offers you the peace of mind of confirming (scientifically speaking) what you are dealing with as well.

The answer to your food sensitivity testing woes possibly waits for you in the use of hair testing instead of blood sample testing.  If you still have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our customer service representatives.  They are available 24/7, 5 days a week, for your utmost convenience and peace of mind.
