Uncover Food & Chemical Sensitivities

Food and Chemical Sensitivity testing may help uncover foods and other substances that trigger chronic inflammation and its related health issues such as gastrointestinal, metabolic disorders and others.

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.

Medical studies using the Alcat Test to guide diet have shown significant improvement of many common symptoms such as migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, and others have been linked to food sensitivity and chronic inflammation.

  • 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, inability to lose weight.
  • Inflammatory conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, arthritis or asthma, autoimmune disorders.
  • Others, such as fatigue, headache, migraine, cognitive impairment.

How it Works

After a consultation with our Nurse Practitioner and a blood draw, 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.

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.
