If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, have
tried several different things without success or have symptoms that just never
seem to go away, Alcat testing can save the day.
Because one person’s food is another person’s poison, you
need to have your own unique answers. With
this test, there is no guesswork as we are asking your body for answers via a
very unique, specialized blood test which is the gold standard in the
The results are
surprising and amazing.
Why this particular test?
First, there are several
companies that offer food intolerance testing. However, what most of them
test is the presence of IgG antibodies. Basically, they are generated due
to exposure, so they can be present if you have recently consumed a food (but
have no intolerance whatsoever to that food). That results in a LOT of
false positives. The Alcat is the only test that measures the actual
response of your white blood cells to a food (they literally buy organic
versions of each food from grocery stores and introduce tiny extracts into your
blood to observe the reaction of your white blood cells, so you don’t have to worry about the false positives
with IgG testing.
Second, Alcat testing has many options – depending on the package you choose,
you can test up to 200 foods and even dyes, additives and things such as mold.
Third, the ALCAT test is more reliable than traditional food
allergy testing that simply detects exposure to certain items. The ALCAT test
measures you for food sensitivity and intolerance, as well as for mold and
Lastly, studies have
indicated that the ALCAT test is more than 83 percent accurate for foods. And
it has an impressive 96 percent accuracy rate for food additives.

are a variety of health issues that can be traced to food intolerance or food
allergies, a problem you may not even realize you have. The purpose of this Alcat
Test is to show you which foods cause inflammation in your body and which foods
will help you to avoid inflammation revealing your health issues
Knowing your particular list can help to you reduce pain,
eliminate stiffness, reduce weight, correct digestion, and so much more. We can
work together and you will know precisely which foods are
friendly or unfriendly to your unique body and set of symptoms.
To understand how impactful this kind of test can be, think
about this: by unknowingly eating the
wrong foods for your body the immune system is chronically activated. This
means it is ramped up - ready for a fight. When this occurs white blood cells
can release harmful chemicals and generate damaging free radicals [inflammatory
agents] as they encounter incompatible foods and chemicals. The body acts as
though it were fighting bacteria and viruses. So you can see how knowing which
are your 'good and bad guys' is invaluable.
These incompatible or 'wrong' foods become the problem and
you may not even be aware this is occurring. One clear way to know whether you
have food sensitivities [everyone has them] is to ask yourself: do I have
symptoms that I just live with which bother me all the time but are essentially
not life threatening?
Food sensitivities often manifest in chronic symptoms that
are part of life. These symptoms are 'background noise'. They are present and
you know you never feel totally healthy and unfortunately accept it.
Can it help my child?
My mom was in environmental medicine and tested mostly
children for food as well as additives, chemicals and seasonal allergies. I would often visit her and hear & read
cards from parents whom were filled with appreciation and gratitude that their
child was finally better. They would
bring their child in with dark circles, behavioral problems, rashes, runny
noses and watery eyes, lethargic or hyperactive, chronic infections, on
medication for A.D.D., problems like asthma and many other symptoms. However, over a short amount of time, they
would get their child back…renewed.
I get the test?
We can schedule an appointment at my spa located in Coastal
Carolina Chiropractic. We will do an initial
consultation and then I will consult with the doctor. Once he signs off on the testing, another
appointment will be made to have a licensed phlebotomist draw your blood at
your home, place of business or you can come to back to us at Coastal Carolina
Your blood will be tested at Cell Sciences Systems Limited,
Corporation, a licensed and FDA complaint laboratory (it is the
only test of its kind to have been awarded 3 patents). After
I get the test results back (generally about 5 – 10 business days), I will call
you to make an appointment to go over them over the phone or in person. Results
are broken down into four categories:
These results are presented in easy-to-understand reports
that I will review with you.
