The ALCAT test is a clinical blood test that measures your body’s inflammatory response to foods, additives colorings, and chemicals.
The Foods that You eat affect how You feel!
What works for someone else may not work for you. You can eat an extremely healthy diet and still have inflammation and turmoil in your body. Cut out the guess work to which foods are creating friction in your body through an ALCAT test. It is a simple blood test that measures your body’s cellular response to challenges from a wide array of substances including foods, additives, colorings and chemicals.
How it Works?
Through cellular reactivity after exposure of the blood sample to the various test agents it clinically shows which substances may be causing a sensitivity-related response in the body.
Food allergy versus sensitivity
A food allergy is an IgE immune system response that is typically characterized by hives, shortness of breath, upset stomach and in some cases anaphylaxis. The most common food allergies are to nuts, shellfish, wheat and dairy. According to the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, only about 4% of the United States population has a food allergy. The ALCAT Test does not detect Food Allergy.
A food sensitivity, on the other hand, is much more common than food allergies. It has been stated that 70-80% of the US population has food intolerances. The Alcat Test is now considered the, “gold standard” laboratory method for identification of non-IgE mediated reactions to foods, chemicals, and other substances.

“Once I started on the ALCAT plan, I began seeing almost immediate results. The food cravings (primarily for sweet foods) stopped completely after about 3 days. I actually started eating only when hungry, but I did not feel deprived and was not starving between meals. The weight loss began almost immediately as well.
I lost a total of about 15 pounds over 3 months. My migraines stopped completely, so I was able to stop taking a migraine preventive medication. My constant fatigue also began to improve over time, as well as bloating from water retention. I was feeling better and definitely looked better (receiving comments almost daily). My body composition was changing as well. Working with Muriel was very helpful: answering questions about the plan and its menus; substituting/eliminating foods when necessary to aid in the weight loss. Thanks for all your help.”

“At 220 pounds I had been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis, Adult Onset Asthma, and High Blood Pressure. I was Border Line Diabetic and had Pitted Edema in my legs to the extent I wore support hose. My ailments were only out numbered by the medications I took for them. I started trying to lose weight.
Without much support or direction, I tried several nationally advertised well known diet plans. I would lose a little and gain even more. After approximately 3 years of this yo-yo I had gained an additional 32 pounds, and was now at my top weight of 252 pounds. Then I found the ALCAT Test through a book I was reading. Unlike the “diet plans” I had seen before, the ALCAT test spoke of food intolerance and a medical reason why my body was not responding to a healthy diet.
After taking the ALCAT Test, I found my most severe food intolerances were some of the healthiest foods I ate, and I ate them on a daily basis. (Lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and lemons, to name a few). When I started the ALCAT Test Rotation Diet I was sure this was something that could change my life. When I eliminated the foods I was intolerant to I started losing weight almost immediately, an amazing 15 pounds the first 2 weeks. In the following 11 weeks I lost an additional 70 pounds. After approximately 10 days I was able to stop taking all six prescription medications. I lost an incredible 16 inches on my waist line; and went from a 3XL shirt to a medium.
The ALCAT Test is absolutely amazing”

“After taking the test, I have more strength. When I would normally take a rest after workouts in the afternoon, I can carry straight through the day and no need or desire to stop for a break. I recommend it to anyone looking for that edge on the competition and for good health in general”
