There is a more than 80% chance that you are intolerant/sensitive to certain foods you eat regularly!
Inflammation caused by intolerance/sensitivity can be linked to a wide variety of acute and chronic health issues including:
Gastrointestinal disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), indigestion, constipation, nausea, diarrhea, bloating, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease
Metabolic disorders, such as obesity, Type II diabetes, inabilitiy to lose weight
Inflammatory conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, arthritis or asthma, autoimmune disorders
Others, such as fatigue, headache, migraine, cognitive impairment
Symptoms can show up hours or even days later, making it hard to identify the offending foods.
Elimination diets can be effective for such big offenders like corn, gluten, dairy, eggs and soy . . . but are tough to do well with when it is foods like carrots, lettuce, apples, or other foods you eat routinely.
The Alcat Test may help uncover which foods and other substances trigger acute and chronic inflammation and its related health issues. Medical studies using the Alcat Test to guide diet have shown significant improvement of many common symptoms.1-3
To date, the Alcat Test has helped over half a million people change their health.
