What does the Alcat test measure?
The Alcat test is a food sensitivity test. It measures your white blood cells response to foods and substances that cause inflammation in your body. As a result, you are able to recognize and remove the triggers from your body and decrease your symptoms.
Food allergy versus food sensitivity.
A food allergy is an IgE immune system response that is immediate. It is characterized by hives, shortness of breath, upset stomach, and in some cases anaphylaxis. The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network states that only about 4% of the United States population has a food allergy.
A food sensitivity is more common than a food allergy. 70-80% of the US population has food sensitivities. Food sensitivities are difficult to determine because symptoms can be delayed up to 72 hours. The Alcat test is the “gold standard” in laboratory methods for identification of sensitivities to food and chemicals.
Symptoms of a food sensitivity:
- Difficulty losing weight
- Digestive disorders
- Chronic fatigue
- Aching joints
- Skin disorders
- Behavioral issues

The food cravings stopped completely after about 3 days. The weight loss began almost immediately. I lost a total of about 15 pounds over 3 months. My migraines stopped completely. My constant fatigue began to improve over time, and so did the bloating from water retention. I was feeling better and definitely looked better.Sue from Georgia
After taking the test, I have more strength. 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.Dave G
At 220 pounds I had been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis, Adult Onset Asthma, and High Blood Pressure. After taking the ALCAT Test, 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. The Alcat Test is absolutely amazing.Joe from Fort Lauderdale, FL
