THE ALCAT TEST IDENTIFIES FOOD INTOLERANCES & SENSITIVITIES
The ALCAT Blood Test identifies cellular response to food chemical derived substances for the purpose of identifying triggers of the patient's innate immune activity. Many modern maladies are evidenced in the effects of chronic inflammation. The cellular processes that occur; either swelling, (vacuolization) decrease in number, (destruction following de-granulation) or shrinking, (probably partial de-generation) are measurable through the ALCAT Test. The ALCAT test provides the basis for an optimized targeted nutrition protocol to support the immune balance.
The ALCAT Test is an immune stimulation test, in which the patient's white blood cells are challenged by up to 460 food and chemical substances. Immune cell changes (predominately neutrophils and lymphocytes) are measured by the ROBOCAT II medical diagnostic device; the resulting measurements are compared against the patient's baseline.
The inflammatory defense mechanisms are activated that cause inflammation and usually present a useful effective defense strategy in the event of an acute infection or directed as a defense against pathogens. Chronic systemic inflammation, however, can lead to gastrointestinal pathologies, problems with the skin, respiratory tract, or joints as well as obesity and metabolic issues.
The efficacy of the ALCAT Test is documented in numerous studies, including double-blind challenges. Research and development has spanned 30 years and has yielded many clinical successes. Studies confirm significant reduction in or complete elimination of symptoms is possible following patient avoidance of reactive foods and chemicals.
