The ALCAT test is a highly sensitive objective test for assessing which foods you may be intolerant or sensitive to. By determining which food is your “meat” and which food is your “poison,” the ALCAT test can vastly improve health and even serve as in aid in disease prevention. For individuals suffering with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) or Osteoarthritis (OA), the ALCAT test may help to relieve symptoms of pain. When the body is allergic to a certain type of food, that reaction can induce inflammation and aggravate arthritis. It’s important to understand the relationship between diet, inflammation and symptoms.
Delayed food hypersensitivities, the types of food allergies that cause arthritis, are difficult to identify on your own because they can take hours or sometimes even days to show up after eating a problem food. The ALCAT test can help to identify the cause of these inflammatory reactions. Because each individual is different, there is no single food or list of foods to avoid. It is important to be individually tested in order to determine which foods your body negatively reacts to. One of the keys to healing arthritis is knowing which foods you need to avoid.
