Are you experiencing temporary imbalances like an upset stomach, bloating, water retention, joint pain, acid reflux, or constant itching? Living with these discomforts should not be be acceptable!
5Strands was created out of a burning desire to assist others experience what healthy feels like. Sometimes in this busy world we neglect looking after our own body. It is extremely easy to just eat the first thing in sight or what is available in the present moment. How many times will you suffer for this later?
When we expose ourselves or our pets to food or environmental items that the body does not agree with, this is called an intolerance. An Intolerance presents itself with physical symptoms to let you know that there is a temporary imbalance that occurred upon exposure or digestion. The body notifies us with the hope that we listen and reduce or remove future exposure opportunities.
It can be extremely difficult to micromanage your nutrition plan and observe how the body responds to each item because an intolerance does not present an immediate response. It may take hours to exhibit a physical symptom. Don’t worry, that’s where 5Strands comes in.
With a 5Strands Test, each item is tested on a severity of response scale upon exposure. The items you or your pet responded to are then provided in an easy to read report for you to utilize as an instant elimination guideline. These imbalances may not be forever (like a peanut allergy). Utilizing these results will help assist you and your pet on a journey to better health.
“Our mission is to empower families with a voice about their own health care and that of their pets. We strive to fill the void of consumer-driven needs with our affordable testing.”

5Strands chooses a hair sample collection method and utilizes bioresonance technology to identify temporary imbalances causing symptoms such as upset stomach, headaches, bloating, joint pain, & water retention. 5Strands does not provide testing for IgE or IgG mediated responses (true allergy involving the immune system causing anaphylaxis response).
You will receive a comprehensive elimination guideline of food intolerances (this includes key proteins, grains, fruits, vegetables, sweeteners, preservatives, gluten, lactose, etc.) and environmental intolerances (cleaning materials, fabrics, pollen, trees, lotions). The results will show only the items you registered an imbalance to upon exposure. That exposure is placed onto a severity scale and provided to you as a level of response your body may be experiencing.
5Strands also provides a Nutritional Deficiency test. The Nutrition covers 80 key vitamins, minerals, and amino acids (vitamin b12, d3, calcium, GABA, etc.). This testing provides the severity of the response upon exposure to each item. Unlike traditional testing, it will not provide you with a physical measurement of the amount of the item in your body.
Testing results take 7-10 days after the hair sample is received at the processing center. Our incredible customer support team is accessible via email or phone to assist with any questions along your journey. When you get your emailed results, don’t be overwhelmed, take a deep breath, and be excited to start your journey to better health.
