The Foods that You eat affect how You feel!
What works for someone else may not work for you. You can eat an extremely healthy diet and still have inflammation and turmoil in your body. Cut out the guess work to which foods are creating friction in your body through an ALCAT test. It is a simple blood test that measures your body’s cellular response to a wide array of substances including foods, additives, colorings and chemicals.
How it Works?
Through cellular reactivity after exposure of the blood sample to the various test agents it clinically shows which substances may be causing a sensitivity-related response in the body.
Food allergy versus sensitivity
A food allergy is an IgE immune system response that is typically characterized by hives, shortness of breath, upset stomach and in some cases anaphylaxis. The most common food allergies are to nuts, shellfish, wheat and dairy. According to the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, only about 4% of the United States population has a food allergy. The ALCAT Test does not detect Food Allergy.
A food sensitivity, on the other hand, is much more common than food allergies. It has been stated that 70-80% of the US population has food intolerances. The Alcat Test is now considered the, “gold standard” laboratory method for identification of non-IgE mediated reactions to foods, chemicals, and other substances.
