One particular kind of food can give different reactions to different individuals. While many people love to eat peanuts, some would think twice about munching them. For people with a sensitivity or allergy to a particular food, consuming that food could set a life threatening condition. The effects of food sensitivity can cause adverse effects to your health. Learning what foods to avoid can help you live a healthy life. If you are looking for a highly efficient food sensitivity test and wish to obtain optimal health by overcoming harmful effects of food sensitivities, ALCAT may just be the best option.
ALCAT for Allergy Testing
The ALCAT is a simple blood test that determines food sensitivities based upon counteractions of immune cells when exposed to different foods. It is used to identify foods you should stay away from. This test is clinically proven to work effectively. It identifies reactions to 350 foods, chemicals and other substance related with inflammation that are linked to chronic health conditions such as migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, eczema, hyperactivity/ADD, asthma and even obesity.
ALCAT is a specialized test that uses cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art equipment. It is precise and objective in evaluating leukocyte cellular reactivity in the entire blood, which is a common pathway of all mechanisms. Compared to other food allergy or intolerance tests, there’s no guesswork and the results are efficient and reproducible in ALCAT.
A food sensitivity is a result of toxic responses to food. It is divided into 2 categories: allergic response and food intolerance.
A food allergy is an exaggerated immune response triggered by eggs, peanuts, milk, or other specific foods. The immune system normally reacts appropriately when exposed with potentially harmful substances. In some people, an immune response is caused by a substance that is normally harmless such as a specific food. When the immune system is activated, white blood cells discharge antibodies to a particular food just as they do when fighting bacteria or viruses. Some symptoms of food allergy include hives, hoarse voice, itching, runny nose, swelling, and wheezing.
Food intolerance is an adverse reaction to certain food or ingredient that occurs every time the food is eaten, particularly in larger amounts. It happens when the body is unable to deal with a certain type of food, usually because the body does not have sufficient chemical or enzyme which is needed to digest the food. Food intolerance is unlike food allergy because the immune system is not activated. Common manifestations of food intolerance include itching of the skin, flushing, abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea.
In a college study, 98% of the subjects following a diet plan refraining from their own trigger food, as determined by the ALCAT, decreased scale weight and/or improved muscle to fat ratio. Additional benefits were reported including skin improvement, increased energy, elimination of migraines, reduced sugar cravings, and better mood and sleep.
ALCAT has been a highly effective tool in overcoming a wide variety of conditions, such as digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, skin disorders and arthritis, which are caused food and chemical sensitivities. It helps you learn which foods you need to avoid to achieve optimal health. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have already been helped by ALCAT in improving their health by successfully overcoming these conditions.
Just as what the old saying goes, “One man’s food is another man’s poison”. Knowing which food you have to steer clear of can help you live a healthy life. If you want to have a life without symptoms and illnesses induced by food, identify what foods you should be avoiding. Take ALCAT allergy testing in Lawrenceville or Buford clinic today.
