Bethany Gettis C.H.N.

gutChek Partner since 2019

Since 2008, I've worked in the healthcare sector as a Licensed Practical Nurse. In my nursing practice, I saw a huge deficit in the area of weight management and food information which led me to return to school and earn my diploma in Natural Nutrition from CSNN in 2010, with accompanying C.H.N designation.

Over several years, I counselled individuals and led group consultations. During this time, I realized that many people didn't have the time to plan for food due to life circumstances, lack of education or misinformation about food labels and healthy food choices.

As a busy mother of two young boys, I get the time constraints and understand what is needed, in order to change your mindset and habits with food and supplements for the long term.

As Seen On

Using Your Hair to Test for Your Intolerances

We offer several comprehensive, non-invasive tests available in the world. Using the latest bio-technology, our testing facility’s safe and prompt procedure uses your hair sample to test and provide personalized results.

We only need 10-12 strands of your hair to perform extensive testing and will email the results to you within just 1-2 working days after receiving your sample.

Your test results will include items that have shown an intolerance of 85% and above. After performing thousands of tests, our testing facility has found 85% to be the point at which symptoms begin to develop into health issues from an intolerance.

Hair testing is more accurate.

Unlike blood and urine testing – where the results can be affected by your last meal, stress or other factors, hair testing is not affected by these things and can therefore store information for longer periods of time.

We then use this information for food intolerance testing and are able to give you a broad picture of your intolerance's.

The Hair Testing Method for intolerance's is considered excellent for several reasons, some include:

  • Less invasive – we only require a small sample of hair.
  • Test more items – blood tests can usually only test for a small selection of items, whereas we can test you against 750 different items with just a few strands of hair.
  • Quicker – testing is completed quickly and efficiently as hair testing is a much faster process than blood testing.
  • ​Does not deteriorate – once a blood or urine sample have been taken, they begin to deteriorate.
  • Hair stores information within it and is not affected by outside contaminants (including dyed hair)
  • Cost effective – due to all of these reasons, hair testing is a lot cheaper than blood testing and allows us to pass these savings onto our customers in the form of extremely competitive prices.

A food sensitivity or intolerance happens when our body has difficulty digesting certain foods. We then experience symptoms like inflammation, bloatedness, weight gain and much more. In order to alleviate your symptoms we must identify which food items are causing these symptoms.
