Food Allergy Testing

Food sensitivities afflict over 70% of the US population with a potential to cause, or further complicate existing health problems. Symptoms can range from fatigue to IBS to eczema, among many others.   Most people are completely unaware of the burdens they tolerate due to these sensitivities.

Have you tried multiple treatments and/or medications for your health ailments with little or no results? Frequently, food sensitivities are the missing link in spotting causes of illness often overlooked by medical doctors.

With our state of the art tests you can:

  • Discover all of your hidden vulnerabilities
  • Know exactly what foods to limit or avoid and find convenient alternatives-knowledge is power
  • Watch your health transform immediately

Many patients have seen dramatic results with as little as one minor tweak to their diet.

“I was amazed what a difference taking milk out of my diet has made. I never realized that a food I consumed every so often can have such a major role in how I feel. Thank you for helping me figure it out! I no longer suffer from sinus problems and constipation”  - Alexandra

Alleviate the following symptoms in a matter of days:

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Weight Gain
  • Stomach Disorders
  • Fatigue
  • Hyperactivity/ADD
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Skin Disorders (i.e. Acne, Eczema)
  • Recurring ear infections in children
  • Depression
  • And much more…

It is easy to justify many of these symptoms to other causes, not even considering that certain parts of your diet could be the culprit.  For example, you may think that a recurring headache is from sitting at a desk for long periods of time when in fact it could be caused by something you eat. 

The Alcat Test

  • Identifies up to 200 foods and 50 molds, food additives and environmental chemicals
  • Simple Blood Draw
  • Measures blood cells’ reactions, mimicking what actually happens when the food is consumed.
  • Reimbursable by insurance

IgG and IgA Antibody Testing

  • Identifies up to 110 foods and environmental chemicals
  • Available through blood draw or finger prick
  • Measures antibodies made to various foods and chemicals
  • Usually covered by United and Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance; reimbursable by other carriers.

Based on your concerns, we will recommend the test that is most suitable for you.

The only way to zero in on hidden sensitivities is through proper testing.

Pricing and Insurance

Food sensitivity/ALCAT testing varies depending on the amount of foods that are tested and are paid directly to the lab for best pricing. We encourage you to submit the lab receipt to your insurance carrier as many patients get fully reimbursed.

We do need an initial appointment first so that we can get a detailed health history and get to know you (we cannot legally run tests on people who are not our patients) but also we can customize the type of foods tested that would be the most beneficial for you as there are a few different food panels available. Depending on your concerns and goals, the panels that are best for you may be different than some other patients.

Furthermore, a big part of the initial consultation focuses on eating habits and food education so that you know not just what foods are best but also how to combine them and time meals properly. We also look at the reasons why patients develop food allergies and sensitivities in the first place and work on not just avoiding the foods that come up on the test but also healing your whole system to help reverse the sensitivities and to help prevent future food sensitivities from arising. This process of looking at the whole body guarantees the most success and the quickest results with your program.
