Hair Analysis test is a form of food and environmental substance intolerance testing whereby a small sample of hair is sent away and analysed. This process is called EAV (Electro-acupuncture According to Voll) testing developed in the 1940’s by a German doctor named Reinard Voll. It is understood that EAV testing uses the principles of acupuncture to measure the energetic system of the body using a galvanometer against your hair sample and test vials. Because your hair records all the reactions in your body over a certain amount of time, this process allows the tester to examine such information and identify the substances you have reacted to.
This analysis tests for over 200 substances you may be intolerant to. This involves food substances such as dairy, wheat, fruit, nuts, meats, additives and preservatives, as well as environmental substances such as pollen, dust mites, common detergents, animal fur and cosmetics. It can also determine how your liver, thyroid and adrenal glands are functioning, and suggest presence of parasitic or fungal (candida) infection.
