5Strands utilizes bioresonance technology that will identify temporary imbalances in the body that may be causing symptoms such as upset stomach, constant scratching, hair loss, hot spots, paw biting. These are non-life threatening responses and can take anywhere from several hours or several days to appear. Unlike an allergy, intolerances do not involve the immune system.
The Pet Food Intolerance Test covers proteins, grains, vegetables, fruits, fats, seafood, additives and preservatives. Of the 275+ items tested, the results will show only the items your pet registered an intolerance to. The intolerances are listed into 3 levels based on the response upon exposure. Utilizing the items that register a Level 3 response will create the recommended 6-8 week elimination guideline. Please try to not feed your pet any food items that were not tested for during the elimination period. You will not know how they will respond to these items. Level 2 items may be affecting their body and causing noticeable symptoms. Level 1 items are just beginning to affect their body on a cellular level. These Level 2 & Level 1 items should be consumed by your pet no more than 2-3 times per week.
Once you know what food items may be causing your pet’s discomforts or intolerance symptoms, you will be able to eliminate them from their diet and see if the symptoms lessen or disappear. After the 6-8 week period, you can then re-introduce an item one at a time in small quantities and see if the symptoms return.
The Pet Environmental Intolerance Test covers fabrics, cleaning supplies, grasses, trees, mold, dust mites, and other animal dander. Of the 105 items tested, the results will show only the items your pet registered an intolerance to. These intolerances are listed into 3 levels based on the response upon exposure. It can be difficult to eliminate environmental items. However, knowledge is power, and this report will help you to avoid these triggers as much as possible and try to manage any symptoms your pet might be experiencing (skin issues, scratching, paw biting, & inflammation). Unlike an allergy, intolerances do not involve the immune system.
In order for you to see ANY positive transformations, this test requires 100% interaction. It is not always just a change from one protein source to another and switching out to a different bag of kibble. Sometimes it means that you must stop feeding your pet processed pet food/kibble and start cooking for them or feeding raw. This test is not about a quick fix that will mask the issues and give temporary relief. Get to the root cause of what is creating the unwanted symptom.
