Food Biocompatibility Testing FAQ
How Much Hair Is Needed?
Approximately 1/2 tsp cut from the nape of neck, or arm/leg hair. If no hair, saliva on a cotton bud placed in a plastic zip lock bag.
It does not matter if the hair is dyed.
Is This An Allergy Test?
No, this is a Bio-Compatibility test which tests for food and products that are Compatible or Incompatible with the individual.
How Does This Test Differ From The Skin Pricking & Blood tests?
Those tests relate to allergy type symptom. When there is an underlying allergy or allergic reaction there is a compromised immune system (poor cellular function).
Bio-Compatibly testing is aimed at a level where we test for foods and household products that compromise cellular function.
Poor cellular function leads to inflammation which is involved in most dis-ease states including allergies. The Bio-Compatibility test is testing at a much deeper level.
What Will The Results Indicate?
The report lists foods and products that you CAN eat and those which you should avoid.
Is There Any Research On How This Test Works?
This Biocompatibility System is the result of over 30 years of research and development by qualified naturopaths in Australia, who have produced the equipment used today. It incorporates both E.A.V (electronic acupuncture according to Voll) and Radionics. It is a naturopathic wellness programme used in over 20 countries.
To understand more about energy medicine/electrical nutrition, these resources are recommended:

What Is Meant By ‘Repair From A Cellular Level’?
1. Removing the incompatible foods and eating only compatible foods to reduce inflammation and repair cellular function.
2. Repairing any tissue damage which may have occurred while the inflammation was in place. Cells in optimum working function will in turn promote optimum organ and systems function. Therefore wellbeing is restored.
Should A Detoxification Program Be Implemented Alongside The Programme?
The body is in a continual state of detox, it just needs help with the extra burden. When there are signs of buildup in the body then the elimination processes are not functioning properly. Many clients go through a purge and/or lose weight after being on the programme, usually around 2 to 4 months. At this stage a detoxification programme could certainly help. It would certainly help to remove buildup of waste and help the repair process but unless the elimination processes are repaired as well, the buildup will reoccur.
What Is More Important, The Test Or The Programme?
Any test only gives us information. How you use or manage that information gives results. While the test has to be accurate the client needs to follow the instructions very closely to gain the best result.
How Will This Test Help The Average Person Improve Their Health?
Many clients get well while taking medications, supplements etc. however, once they stop many of them rebound. There is usually something underlying what is causing this rebound. It makes sense to focus on improving cellular function as this is where we can first recognize most disease states. Researchers today say that inflammation is part of most disease states. Inflammation is often the result of eating incompatible foods.
Do I Need A Follow Up Test? If So, How Many?
People are very different so their response to the programme differs greatly. However t is recommended to follow the programme for the entire 6 months to give the body time to repair. Many clients’ symptoms resolver after 4-6 weeks on the programme.
Retesting is recommended between 6 and 9 months. It is common for 75% of negative items (incompatible) to correct at this point. Some will remain and may take up later on. There may be a few new ones. The new ones are added to your first list for another 4 weeks. After the 4 weeks we have a very strict protocol for reintroducing corrected items.
