The ALCAT Test for Food Sensitivity and Intolerance

I use the comprehensive ALCAT test to identify each patient so called “problem” foods. So, no more guesswork for patients with food intolerance/sensitivity and digestive problems.

You can stop wondering why you feel sick and what is triggering your disease. Now you have tools, which can help you to pinpoint the exact cause of your disease and you can take precise steps to get well once and for all.

The ALCAT Test identifies foods, chemical, environmental substances that are associated with indigestion, constipation, bloating, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, migraine, aching joints and muscles. The following disorders are shown to be associated with food/environmental sensitivities.

  • Gastrointestinal Disorders:Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, indigestion, constipation, bloating, and diarrhea)
  • Metabolic Disorders:Inability to lose weight (obesity) and Type II Diabetes
  • Other Health Problems:Rheumatoid Arthritis, Recurrent Ear Infections, Migraine, Fatigue, Skin Problems and Sinusitis
