ALCAT Food Sensitivity Testing


 

Food allergy is an immediate immune response often characterized by hives, shortness of breath, upset stomach, and in some cases anaphylaxis. The ALCAT is not a “food allergy” test, but rather helps to identify “food intolerance.”

Food intolerance is much more common than food allergies. However, as a delayed immune response, symptoms can occur anywhere from 12 hours to 3 or more days after consumption or exposure. Symptoms range from everything from digestive problems, migraines, and obesity to fatigue, aching joints, skin disorders and behavioral issues. It has been suggested that upwards of 70-80% of the US population have treatable food intolerance. Unfortunately from a conventional perspective, symptoms linked to food intolerance are too often identified as individual syndromes, or named illness such as chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, and even autoimmune disorders, AD(H)D, Autism, and the list goes on.  Essentially, this results in labeling the individual and putting out fires (i.e. treating symptoms) but ignoring the cause.

Too often doctors and other clinicians have relied on inaccurate test such as blood IgG, which are debatable as people are led to believe they are “intolerant” to everything they eat most.  This is not reasonable and is in fact widely criticized due to shifting and inconsistent results based on what the individual consumed prior to testing… But there is a better way. The ALCAT, unlike IgG testing, is more meaningful based on our experience, and following its recommendations consistently leads to clinical improvements.
