Alcat testing

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 nutritional field.  

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 chemical sensitivities.

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.

How can it help me? 

Did you know that inflammation can cause a whole array of symptoms and has been linked to:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Asthma
  • Eczema
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Digestive Problems
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Weight Issues
  • Menstrual and Menopausal Challenges
  • Hyperactivity
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Psoriasis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Allergies
  • And more

There 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.

How do 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 Chiropractic. 

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:

  • Severe Intolerance.
  • Moderate Intolerance.
  • Mild Intolerance.
  • Acceptable Foods.

These results are presented in easy-to-understand reports that I will review with you.


Testimonials

Luz from New Jersey – 
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. The medical doctor who had diagnosed me had informed me that my condition had to be treated with Western medication and that it was quite likely that the medications would have to be taken for the rest of my life.I wanted more options and more control over my body. I decided to work with a nutritionist for support and guidance. The recommended dietary changes did initially relieve my symptoms but after a few weeks they returned. Frustrated with the reoccurring pain, bloating, and bleeding, I agreed to take the Alcat Test. The test was simple and yet the results were life changing. Many of the “healthy foods” I was consuming daily were simply not right for my body and were causing inflammation. The list of foods to avoid was long but most importantly, it was a list I could have never come up with myself. Foods like black pepper, red lettuce and pears were making me sick. There were approximately 300 food items on the list. After only 3 days of eating the allowed foods I felt better. The pain, bloating and bleeding had stopped. After the first week, I was back to myself. It has been almost a year and I have not taken one pill. I feel great. I am proof that when the body is given what it needs, it will heal itself.

Stephanie From Florida – I want to take a moment and tell you how pleased I am that I had the Alcat Test done. I was feeling sluggish, could not lose weight, had a headache every day, and heartburn! When I heard about the Alcat Test, I was suspicious. How could food have such a negative effect on my system. However, I really wanted some relief.
I had the test done, and started eliminating the foods that I am sensitive to. What an amazing result. I do not have headaches or heartburn anymore. I have a lot of energy, and feel more optimistic than I have in years. A nice side effect also is that I have started losing weight. This has been such a struggle for me, and now I feel that I can shed the extra pounds that I have been carrying for years. I strongly support this test, and would be happy to share my success with anyone!
