Think that bloat is a result of too many holiday parties and treats? Think again. Feelings of bloating, nausea, headaches and lethargy after a meal can be caused by factors other than time of day or overindulging. You could actually have a food sensitivity and be unaware of it.
Food sensitivity could be responsible for your inability to lose weight effectively. Food sensitivities are caused when the perpetrating food reacts with the cells within the body and causes inflammation in one or more systems in the body. This inflammation over time can actually do damage to the systems of the body resulting in hard to diagnose disorders.
In today’s foods there are so many additives that it may be difficult to pinpoint exactly what you may have just eaten, even if you keep a very strict food journal. However, having a food sensitivity test performed can identify what foods, additives or medications can create this inflammation within your body.
The ALCAT test is a simple blood test that gives an individual essential insight into foods that may or may not be agreeing with their immune system and metabolic processes.
Incompatible foods have been proven to cause migraines, weight gain and joint pain to name a few. The elimination of these foods reduces inflammatory processes and allows the body to function optimally. The ALCAT test also can test for migraines, molds, gluten and a multitude of functional foods including common supplements.
