Diet plays a critical role in how our bodies function. Every compound that we put in our body is broken down into smaller parts that directly affect and act on our tissues, organs, and larger organ systems.
However, a food item that may give energy and sustenance to one, may cause inflammation and dysfunction in another. Foods, preservatives, and all other digested compounds can cause allergic activation and/or inflammation leading to chronic activation of the immune system. While some may experience significant symptoms, other may have vague symptoms (ie fatigue) or none at all; however, these reactions still cause problems within the body. A few conditions that have been linked to diet and inflammation are:
Migraines, Obesity, Hypertension, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder, Skin Disorders (ie Eczema), Digestive Disorders (ie Irritable Bowel Disease), Muscle Aches/Joint Pain, Arthritis, and potentially many more!

The ALCAT Test is now considered the, “gold standard” laboratory method for identification of non-IgE medicated reactions to over 400 different foods, chemicals, and other categories of substances. It is a functional response test and captures the final common pathway of many of the pathogenic mechanisms, immunologic, toxic, and pharmacologic that underlie non-IgE medicated reactions to foods and chemicals. Alcat Test frequently reveals clinically significant reactions that don’t fall within the conventional definition of allergy.
This is a test we are offering that measures personalized nutrition at the cellular level. With just one blood draw, this technology will identify foods and compounds that are non-reactive (safe), minimally reactive (OK in moderation), or reactive (harmful). Each plan is highly individualized and will test you for 320 foods, additives, colorings, herbs, preservatives, molds, chemicals (environmental), and 20 commonly used prescription and over the counter medicines.
ALCAT will then customize an individualized nutritional plan and help optimize your wellness by choosing foods that are right for you!
