ALCAT Food Sensitivity Testing
As opposed to other food sensitivity testing such as IgG or IgE tests, the ALCAT test does not monitor antibody production. Rather, the patient's blood is exposed to a panel of over 350 different chemicals and foods, with emphasis on white blood cell reaction. In this way, not only can more potential causes be investigated, more information can be provided in the results which can help the subject determine a diet that will most benefit their health goals. Whether it is to simply discover what is causing an adverse reaction within their body, or a better way to lose weight without resorting to a fad diet, the ALCAT test has the potential to become a wonderful nutritional guide.
