ALCAT and Food Allergy Testing in Red Hook NY
The immune system is a double-edged sword. It should react appropriately and protect against infection what confronted with harmful invaders or “infectious agents” like viruses or bacteria. Unfortunately for some, exposure to common foods, chemicals and molds may trigger chronic activation of the immune system.
For over 20 years The ALCAT Test has provided healthcare professionals and their patients with a tool for managing a wide variety of conditions linked to chronic activation of the immune system, such as: Digestive Disorders, Migraines, Obesity, Chronic Fatigue, Aching joints, skin disorders, Autism, and many more.
The ALCAT test measures your personalized nutrition at the cellular level. The core technology is a blood test that measures the body’s cellular response to challenges from a wide array of substances including various foods, additives, colorings and chemicals. The individual’s cellular reactivity after exposure of the blood to the various test agents, versus the person’s own baseline control, tells the healthcare provider which substances may be causing a sensitivity-related response in the body. Following resting, a 4-Day Rotational Diet is recommended to the patient.
The ALCAT Test has been validated by demonstrating a high correlation with double-blind oral challenges with both foods and food additives. In addition, a controlled study from Baylor Medical College reported 98% success for weight loss and/or improvement in body composition from patients that followed the recommended ALCAT Rotational Diet, an unparalleled achievement.
