Diet plays a critical role in preventing a wide range of degenerative diseases and premature aging. Theimmune system should react appropriately and protect against infection when introduced to harmful or infectious agents like viruses or bacteria. Unfortunately for some, exposure to common foods, chemicals or molds may trigger chronic activation of the immune system.
For over 20 years, the ALCAT (Antigen Leukocyte Cellular Antibody Test) has been a useful tool for managing a wide variety of conditions linked to chronic activation of the immune system. These conditions include: Digestive Disorders, Migraines, Obesity, Chronic Fatigue, ADD, Aching Joints, Skin Disorders, Arthritis, and more.
How it Works?
The ALCAT test was developed to measure personalized nutrition at the cellular level. It is a simple blood test that measures the body’s cellular response to challenges from a wide array of substances including foods, additives, colorings and chemicals. The individual’s cellular reactivity after exposure of the blood sample to the various test agents, versus its own baseline control, tells us which substances may be causing a sensitivity-related response in the body.
The Test Results and Rotational Diet
The ALCAT test results are presented in an easy to read and understand, color-coded format. They highlight each patient’s incompatible foods and the level of each reaction (severe, moderate or mild). The ALCAT test results also clearly identify the foods, which are non-reactive or “safe” foods by putting them in a green section of the results and organizing them by food groups. In addition to the results, each test also includes a customized 4-Day Rotational Diet.
We at Physicians Health and Injury Center are excited to offer this one simple blood test, scientifically proven, that tells you which foods may be a problem for you. Hippocrates said, "Let food be thy medicine." We believe the bestmedicine may actually be finding out what foods are right for you.
