I was wondering what you know about the ALCAT Tests? Is it real? worth it? Is there something better I can be doing myself? Thanks. – Gayle, Rochester, NY
I think the ALCAT test is a great tool to add more information to the overall picture you have to build of your individual health profile. It shows food sensitivities, not allergies, through a simple blood test. Knowing your blood type, knowing your ethnicity, allergies, medical counter-indications and your personal preferences are all factors when considering your optimal diet.
The ALCAT site has an FAQ page that answers many questions, and a website full of information. I have had the basic test for 100 foods and 20 chemicals, including 7 artificial food colorings. I had a few surprises and a lot more confirmations. It has been a very useful piece of the puzzle that makes up my own nutritional profile.
