Avoid Inflammatory Reactions which Lead to Chronic Health Problems
Inflammation and chronic activation of the immune system due to food intolerance has been linked to:
And many more...
Are foods making you sick? Inflammation and chronic activation of the immune system due to food intolerances has been linked to an array of health issues including diabetes, digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, ADD/ADHD, joint pain, arthritis, and many others.
The Alcat Test may help uncover which foods and other substances trigger chronic inflammation and its related health issues such as gastrointestinal, metabolic disorders and others.
The Alcat Test can measure cellular reactions to over 450 substances.
Medical studies using the Alcat Test to guide diet have shown significant improvement of many common symptoms.
To date, the Alcat Test has helped over half a million people change their health.
The Power Of Knowing
There is a new paradigm in health and medicine - personalization. Health can be improved and maintained by knowing how food plays a role in your body.
The Alcat Test enables you to take advantage of leading technology to create a personalized nutrition plan resulting in benefits that can be seen and felt.
The results from the Alcat Test can help determine which foods and other substances may trigger unwanted inflammation. The personalized nutrition plan based on your immune response can assist with food choices that are better for your health and well-being. When complying with the Alcat Test results, many clinical symptoms associated with food sensitivity may be substantially improved or possibly prevented altogether.
Sensitivity vs. Allergy
An allergy is a reaction that triggers the release of antibodies that results in immediate symptom onset. A true food allergy causes an immune response that can affect multiple organs and in some cases, be severe or even life threatening. Food sensitivity symptoms are delayed and are typically limited to digestive problems, but they can lead to chronic inflammatory health issues.

How it Works.
A small sample of your blood is sent to the laboratory overnight. Upon receiving the sample, the blood goes through a multi-step quality assurance process. During testing, your white blood cells are tested against foods and other substances in a process known as flow cytometry and cell impedance methodology. After testing, the results are presented in a clear and easy to read color-coded format.
Symptoms such as migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, and others have been linked to food sensitivity and chronic inflammation. The Alcat Test is designed to assess sensitivities to over 450 food, chemical and environmental substances. These sensitivities are shown to be associated with both acute and chronic conditions.
Gastrointestinal disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), indigestion, constipation, nausea, diarrhea, bloating, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's Disease
Metabolic disorders, such as obesity, Type II diabetes, inabilitiy to lose weight
Inflammatory conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, arthritis or asthma, autoimmune disorders
Others, such as fatigue, headache, migraine, cognitive impairment
