How does gutChek work?

Simple! With a small sample of hair, as little as 7 to 10 hairs (more if you like :)

We can identify your intolerances, nutrients and toxins.

Is a food intolerance different from a food allergy?

Yes. It's important to note that a food intolerance is a digestive system response, as opposed to an allergy that is an immune system response. Intolerances occur when a specific food irritates your system or creates a digestive upset, typically when a person is unable to properly digest, absorb, or break down, that food.

Where is your testing facility?

Our testing facility is in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Who should do intolerance testing?

Anyone interested in supporting and improving their health. We also test pets and horses. Our results speak for themsevles, as we have improved the quality of life, and performance for people, pets, and horses!

How long do you keep my hair sample for?

The testing facility, safely disposed of your sample within 10 days of testing.

Where is the test recognised?

The medical and naturopathic communities have been utilizing these tests for many years.

How long have you been offering this service?

A long time :) We have been conducting food sensitivity testing for over 8 years.

Is there an age requirement for children?

Typically, age 6 and older.

How much hair do I need to provide?

7 to 10 strands of dry hair with the root on is preferred. Or more if you like :)

Will it affect my results if my hair is dyed, or too short?

No, the hair test is completed on what’s stored in the hair, so coloring does not affect the test. We may need more hair if your hair is short.

What if I’m bald?

We can analyze hair from your head or your body. No need to elaborate :)

Are there any additional fees?

No, everything you need for your gutChek is included in the initial investment of $169 for your test. Your gutChek test includes 3 digestive reports: intolerances, nutrients and toxins.

What kind of support is available after I have my gutChek?

Lots! If you’d like guidance and a personalized plan, you can purchase a 1:1 nutritional consultation for $59 with one of our gutChek certified holistic nutritional practitioners to review your results and create an action plan for you.

gutChek clients also have the opportunity to subscribe for free to our LifeStyle/Health Plans including access to our app, educational information including nutrition, meal plans, recipes, and videos, and nutritional supplement recommendations – so you'll know what to take and when to take it. The Health Plans include: Clean Eating / Keto / Immune Support / Detox / Adrenal / Stress Program / Cardio.

How does this test differ from a blood test?

Our tests are less invasive and considerably less expensive when compared to blood tests. With blood testing, the food you’ve eaten in the last 24 to 48 hours can affect the results. The information in the hair however is stored, and we believe it provides a better capture of data for accuracy. We believe this is the highest quality non-IgE scientific food sensitivity test on the market.

What is Bioresonance?

Bioresonance therapy is a complementary medicine using a device that captures and diagnoses electromagnetic signals coming from the body. Developed in the 1970’s by a team of medical doctors and biophysicists, these devices are in regular use in over 26 different countries.

Hair testing but what else?

Bio-resonance is also used in sports medicine. A number of Olympic and professional sports teams now utilize bioresonance therapists. The Russian space program uses bioresonance technology because it enables a convenient and non-invasive way to monitor and enhance the health of their cosmonauts. Health Centres in Sweden and Germany have bioresonance machines. Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands and the UK, have the highest concentration of bioresonance therapists. Hospitals in China also use bioresonance.
