Did you know that hidden food sensitivities can cause chronic inflammation in the body, resulting in weight gain, skin issues like psoriasis, eczema and rosacea as well as migraines, digestive disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), chronic fatigue, autoimmune diseases, ADD/ADHD and more? As the ancient Roman poet and philosopher Lucretius stated, “One man’s meat is another man’s poison.”
The immune system is a double-edged sword; while it prevents against harmful bacteria and viruses, exposure to common foods can also trigger chronic activation and inflammation, resulting in degenerative diseases and premature aging. For many years, this connection hasn’t been fully understood – until now.
Alcat testing, now available at Skin Care Institute in Tulsa, is the most comprehensive food sensitivity/intolerance testing available. The core technology is a blood test that measures the body’s cellular response to foods, food additives, food colorings, molds, herbs and environmental chemicals.
During your consultation at Skin Care Institute, we work together with patients to determine which items to test for, and testing can even be customized for children. About two weeks following your blood draw, you will receive customized test results that are categorized and color coded into severe, moderate, mild or no sensitivity. Patients also receive a booklet further explaining their results and how to begin a diet in line with their food sensitivities, such as gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance and more.
Alcat testing has changed many individual’s lives since the technology was first developed over 25 years ago and we’re thrilled to now offer it to our Tulsa clientele. A controlled study from Baylor Medical College reported 98% success for weight loss and/or improvement in body composition from patients that followed the recommend Alcat Rotation Plan!
