The ALCAT food sensitivity test is a minimally invasive blood test that accurately and reproducibly measures biological cellular reactivity in whole blood. Unlike standard IgG tests, which rely exclusively on one immune pathway and merely detects exposure, the ALCAT test is the premier test for detecting food, mold and chemical sensitivities/intolerances. Studies show the ALCAT test to be 83.4% accurate with foods and 96% accurate with food additives, as compared with the Gold Standard – a double blind oral challenge.
How it works:
The ALCAT test objectively measures changes in size and number of white blood cells in response to ex vivo challenges with foods, chemicals and other environmental stimuli. Scores are generated by relating the patients’ own blood without test substrate to their tested, reactive blood. Results are designated into four categories – Severe Intolerance, Moderate Intolerance, Mild Intolerance and Acceptable Foods – on a color coded report that is accessible online by the prescribing doctor or by hard copy. Included in the results is an individualized rotation diet.

Cell Science Systems ALCAT Food Sensitivity testing pin-points which foods, colorings, additives and environmental chemicals may be contributing to your digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, aching joints, skin conditions, behavioral issues and more. There are basic smaller panels and more advanced panels to choose from.
This is always a good option for optimizing the 30 Day program and will further personalize your program and address any other potential food sensitivities you may be dealing with. Most of today’s common food allergies are to nuts, shellfish, peanuts, wheat and dairy. As these IgE immune reactions are considered true allergies, most are much easier to detect and due to their significant and immediate common reactions are characterized by hives, shortness of breath, and in some cases anaphylaxis. Only about 4% of the United States population has true food allergies. To address a true allergy, a specific blood test looking for Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies can be ordered through your primary care physician or an Allergist.
Food sensitivities, on the other hand, are much more common than food allergies and are characterized by digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, aching joints, skin disorders and behavioral issues. It has been stated that upwards of 70-80% of the US population has food sensitivities. Unfortunately for many, those food sensitivity symptoms are often identified as individual problems and treated as such through pharmaceutical intervention, thus treating the symptoms and not the cause. An ALCAT test is commonly tested in determining these sensitivities is now considered the, “gold standard” laboratory method for identification of non-IgE mediated reactions to foods, chemicals, and other substances.
For those looking to implement this type of testing prior to the start of this program, one of our offered ALCAT tests may be a great option. If after the 30 Day G.I. FIX you are continuing to have problems, this testing is an option then as well.
