The Alcat test works by measuring real-time changes in various biological pathways. These internal processes are numerous and complex, rarely traveling in a linear way, but by observing them as they play out, certain trends in the behaviors of specific cells yield insightful information as to how your body is interacting with a given stimulus.
The Alcat test assesses the size, volume, and variety of WBCs in the blood as it responds to the introduction of food, chemicals and other ex vivo (i.e. environmental) stimuli. By assessing levels of leukocytes, other immune system biomarkers, and biological pathways, the Alcat test can determine whether a food allergy is present, a food sensitivity is present, or no intolerance whatsoever is present.
Once the results of the test are recorded and interpreted, you and your doctor can discuss what steps (if any) should be taken to correct the issue in a healthy, medication-free way.
