I turned to Tom and said: “My belly. It hurts so bad. Just look at me I look like I’m 6 months pregnant, but clearly, I’m not.”
This was me not so long ago, feeling utterly miserable with what I call a belly hangover.
The digestion issues were getting worse. I thought I was eating ok. I knew it could be better, but it wasn’t like I was eating junk. Yet with indigestion, bloating and tummy aches I just couldn’t deal with anymore.
Enough was enough, something had to be done.
Yes, I could have done another Whole 30 or Whole Life Challenge, but I wanted something that would give me definitive answers. Something that would motivate me long-term rather than a short-term fix.
It was then I decided to get some allergy testing done. I made the (what some would consider controversial) decision to get hair testing done. Having done this method of allergy testing over a decade ago, it was something I was already familiar with, and less evasive.
Hair testing is an alternative to blood tests. It’s normal to feel a little sceptical about hair testing. Hair however when tested can give you so much historical history about you.
The hair on your head could be anywhere between 2-6 years old before it falls out. When the hair does come out, it’s essential a timeline, so when tested it can reveal a lot of information.
This is one of the reasons why I wanted to get it done, the other reason was I just didn’t want to go to the doctor and deal with the bazillion questions about wanting blood tests done, or getting referred to an allergist/immunologist.
Doing testing this way, meant the control was in my hands. What I decided with the results, would come down to me.
The process with Allergy Test Australia was simple, easy and quick. I had the results in my inbox within 10 days.

Armed with this new information, I now could make changes.
The first step was taking the plunge and enrolling in the 131 Method.
Why this method? Well, it’s clear I need I reset. What better way to rest my metabolism, level out my hormones and build a healthy gut.
This program is unique, as it’s tailored to me.
- 1 week of prep.
- 3 weeks of testing
- 1 person
- = 131
I still have a long way to go. Once I have completed my first cycle of 131, I will be back with Part 2.
I’ve made many discoveries, and look forward to sharing them with you soon.
