Identifying Food and Chemical Sensitivities

The Alcat Test is a simple laboratory test that measures food and chemical sensitivities. 80% of the immune system is in the gut, which is the largest area of contact with the environment. For our protection, it distinguishes between harmless and harmful. Many inflammatory conditions may be related to or can be influenced by your daily diet. Conditions in which benefits have been reported include:

Gut: IBS, diarrhea/constipation/bloating, gastritis, reflux, Crohn’s, etc.

Metabolism: obesity, diabetes, healthy weight loss, thyroid illness

Skin: eczema, psoriasis, rashes, acne, etc.

Joints: rheumatoid arthritis, muscle pains

Respiratory: chronic cough, asthma, sinusitis

Neurological: migraine, chronic fatigue, ADD, etc.

There are multiple reasons why immune cells attack food particles:

  1. the body is limited in its ability to detoxify,
  2. it reacts abnormally due to the excess of chemicals in the foods and the environment,
  3. the intestinal function is not in equilibrium or,
  4. immune dysregulation resulting in some food particles not being recognized and considered as harmful.

More than 450 individual substances can be tested from a single blood draw. Find a lab that will provide quick test results and provide a color-coded test report that includes a personalized rotation diet with a practical user guide.
