If you have been looking for food intolerance testing then the ALCAT Test should be at the top of your list! For more than 20 years the ALCAT test has been the go-to test for people who are looking to discover their individual food intolerance, improve their health, endurance, and life expectancy all while reducing or eliminating their chronic conditions.
In this review, I’m going to specifically show you how the ALCAT test works. Then I am going to talk to you about all of those so-called FAD diets and why they don’t work. Finally I’ll show you how you can benefit from knowing YOUR food sensitivities.
The Difference Between Food Allergy and Sensitivity
The ALCAT Test is a highly sensitive, objective test for assessing which foods you may be intolerant or sensitive to. Our bodies react to foods and chemicals in many different ways. One such way is in the form of an immediate allergic reaction. The ALCAT Test does not specifically test for this type of classic or “true” food allergy. Therefore, if you already know that you have a Type 1 or IgE mediated allergy then you must continue to avoid those items.
The ALCAT Test is NOT an “allergy” or IgE test. The ALCAT is the most effective and comprehensive sensitivity/intolerance test available. The test identifies reactions to over 350 foods, chemicals and other substances associated with inflammation that are linked to chronic health problems like migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, eczema, hyperactivity/ADD, asthma and even obesity.
The ALCAT Test will not identify immediate food allergies. If you have immediate or IgEmediated food allergies please continue to avoid these items even if they appear onyour green or “acceptable” foods list.
If you are in any doubt, or have any questions regarding IgE/classic food allergies, please consult with your physician who can assist in identifying these types of “true” food allergies. It is rare that foods cause this type of classic allergy, typically less than 5% of the population. The ALCAT Test identifies food and chemical sensitivities where the symptom onset is longer (several hours to days) and varied (typical in chronic conditions). These types of sensitivities or intolerances affect nearly everyone.
The Problem with FAD DIET BOOKS!
The truth is that each of our bodies is completely different. The old saying “One man’s food is another man’s poison” couldn’t be more true. Fad diet books are just that, a FAD! They take one person’s experience and then try to suggest that what worked for their body will work for yours or mine. It just doesn’t make sense.
You’ve probably heard people say, “listen to your body.” Well why not let YOUR BLOOD tell you what works best for YOUR BODY. The results are truly amazing!
So just to recap:
- Tests your own blood for up to 350 different foods, chemicals, herbs and spices to see what your body likes
- Simple (no trial and error or jumping through endless hoops)
- You don’t have to go through your primary doctor, HMO, PPO to get it.
- Quick blood test from the comfort of your home or office. (no waiting for hours at the doctors office)
- Easy to understand results shipped directly to you (again, no doctors appointment waiting to find out your test results)
- Customized Nutrition/Meal Plans available based off of your own test results. (how about your own personal diet book!)
- Does not test for “true” immediate allergies.
- Rarely covered by insurance
If you ask me, the CONS aren’t really CONS. Most of us know if we allergic to certain foods already and don’t need to waste time and money at the doctors to find out. Regarding insurance, typically you go to the doctor and just get anti-histamine for your allergies. Rarely does your doctor think it might be related to food, and if you are lucky enough to have a doctor that knows about “food allergies” then you are likely to get the painful skin prick test that only test for immediate allergies (IgE). Then you are left with allergy shots as your treatment, sometime 3 and 4 shots at a time. And all this time you are still having reactions to foods you are eating, they are just delayed reactions (sensitivities) so you never get better.
So bottom line, if you have been looking for the best in food sensitivity testing then the ALCAT Test is what you are looking for!
I am so thankful for the results of my ALCAT test. I now know I am not crazy! Last January and February I experienced episodes of Vertigo that caused me to step away from working in our church nursery, not knowing it was Vertigo, but feeling not in control of my body I didn’t want to cause harm to anyone’s precious child. March I experienced the same sensation while sitting in a chair at my office desk. A CT Scan was ordered and the doctor called to say I had a sinus infection, ordered antibiotics. But down deep I felt there was something else going on and I had been feeling this way for a long time, almost like I was watching life go by, but pulling away from participating in it.
In August I had a “visual aura” to a no-pain migraine. Had had migraines since I was in grade school but they were always accompanied by pain. This was new. I started researching and found non-visual aura’s for migraines that had many of my symptoms. By late September I had stopped eating many of the foods I had been keeping at the office for my emergency foods when I wasn’t able to get out to lunch (3-4 times a week) and I was now having “episodes” of my problems, not constant problems. In October I was really tying it to foods and by early November had stopped eating Fruits and Vegetables. Between early November and now I lost over 20 pounds eating breads, potatoes and meat, cookies, drinking water, juices and green teas and once a day drinking a cup of Lipton tea. The weight just fell off. I didn’t not eat, I just didn’t eat what seemed to be causing the confusion, and I now think clearly and can work almost like I use to.
Your test results earlier this month confirmed many of my triggers and others were a huge surprise. I am telling others about your test and sending them to your site. Wish I had heard about your test a year ago, it would have saved a year of anguish. Thanks for letting me know I’m not crazy!

I just want to tell anyone who takes the Alcat test that it is very accurate. I was having headaches in the past and did not know exactly which foods the headaches were coming from. I took the Alcat test and confirmed that several items I suspected were on my list of intolerant foods. I also found that there were many more on my list and answers were finally there. It was not a guessing game. I have been staying away from these foods for three weeks now and I must say that I feel much better. My headaches stay away as long as I avoid my offending foods. My 9 year old son also did the test. He has an allergy to dust mites which results in asthma. He needs to stay away from milk, wheat and some other foods. His list was not as long as mine. He has been following the guide lines and staying away from intolerant foods. He has decreased his asthma medicine 3 times a day to 2 times a day and sometimes we even decrease the dose by half. I see a wonderful improvement. We are what we eat. In order to feel better and take care of bodies, we need to do the right thing for us. I wish I had done this a long time ago.

My husband and I have done the Alcat test and would like to let others know what great results we have had. I have been on the rotation meal plan for 6 months and my husband for one month. Within three days my husband who suffers from asthma has seen dramatic results. He can breath better than he can ever remember. I have quit after 5 years, my menopause replacement hormones, I no longer have acid reflux, no more sinus headaches or constipation. Our sons have even asked for the Alcat test as their birthday presents after they saw our results!

Our daughter has been taking Ritalin and Paxil for over 5 years to deal with hyperactivity/ADHD as well as other health, concentration and academic issues. The alcat test identified numerous foods that we needed to eliminate-such as beef, lemon, grapes and apples. Once we eliminated these foods, we saw a dramatic change with our daughter. Within 24 hours she was much more calm. We slowly weened her off Paxil and Ritalin, and now she is TOTALLY off of these drugs for more than 2 months. The ALCAT Test has done wonders.
