FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING

The foods that work for you might not work for someone else.  You could be eating the healthiest foods in the world, yet still have nagging symptoms that won't seem to go away.

Food sensitivities affect 70-80% of the US population, with the ability to cause brand new or complicate existing health conditions.  Most people are completely unaware of the effects that certain foods have on their body.  If you have tried various treatments and/or medications to help your health issues and are not feeling relief, the ALCAT test might be right for you.  Food sensitivities are frequently the missing link overlooked by conventional medical doctors.  

An ALCAT test can eliminate the guess work as to which foods are creating an inflammatory immune response in your body.  With a simple blood test you can pinpoint various health issues.  Below are a list of common symptoms that can be relieved by the ALCAT test:

SYMPTOMS OF FOOD SENSITIVITIES

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Digestive Distress
  • Weight Loss Resistance
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Obesity
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Infertility
  • Hyperactivity/ADD
  • Recurring Ear Infections
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Thyroid Issues
  • Auto-Immune Conditions
  • ...and many more

 

HOW IT WORKS

The ALCAT test analyzes white blood cell reactivity after exposure to a particular antigen (food, additive, chemical, etc.).  This mimics the response in the body after you eat a food that you are potentially reactive to.  The ALCAT test is not concerned with the particular immunoglobulin released (IgG, IgE, IgA, IgM).  A typical food allergy test specifically measures the IgE immunoglobulin released.  The ALCAT test investigates what causes your immune system to set off any type of response, which causes systemic inflammation.  (NOTE:  This test does NOT test for food allergies, this is for food sensitivities and intolerances only.)
