Food Sensitivity Testing and MicroNutrient Testing
At Elan Medical we know that many things play a role in how you feel and what you are sensitive to. This is why we offer the Alcat food sensitivity testing and Spectra cell micro nutrient testing. Elan medical patients want the best so we offer the best testing available. These test let you know on a cellular level how your blood reacts to the food you are eating and what micro nutrients you are lacking. With these test we are able to identify and help alleviate issues such as irritable bowl syndrome, chronic headaches, muscle pain or fatigue.
The ALCAT Test is a sensitivity and intolerance test that 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 disorder.
The ALCAT is not an IgE allergy test. It is also different than a standard IgG test because it is not influenced or dependent on past exposure. The standard IgG can yield false negative or positive results, especially if you’ve never been exposed to the substance, or conversely, have been exposed to a large amount of the substance. For example, maybe you are mildly sensitive to tomatoes, but you eat them 3 times a day… just love them tomatoes. It’s possible that tomatoes would land in the severe category on an IgG.
