ALCAT Food Allergy Test Available at CMLA

Diet plays a critical role in preventing a wide range of degenerative diseases and premature aging. The immune system should react appropriately to protect us against any harmful infectious agents, but unfortunately, sometimes those infectious agents are the common foods we eat, causing food sensitivities or allergies.
The inability to tolerate foods and environmental factors, also known as sensitivity or intolerance, induces chronic activation of the innate immune system and gives rise to inflammatory processes. Such inflammation has been linked to countless chronic conditions, including: digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, ADD, aching joints, skin disorders, arthritis and many more.
Food allergies refer to foods that trigger the immune system to acutely produce massive amounts of the chemical histamine that leads to anaphylaxis. This potentially fatal condition causes the throat and esophagus to swell, cutting off air from the lungs, or may simply cause hives, skin rashes, and other non-life-threatening reactions.
Administered at Concierge Medicine LA, the ALCAT test is the most effective and comprehensive sensitivity/intolerance test available. Just a simple blood 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 results will also clearly identify the foods and/or food groups which are non-reactive or “safe” for you.
If you feel you may have food sensitivities or allergies, or just simply want to know which foods are best for you, contact our office at (310) 826-2555 to schedule the ALCAT test with your personal concierge physician.
