How Allergies Are A Factor

Allergies, whether seasonal or year-round can have a detrimental impact on your life.  Have you ever eaten a few peanuts or a slice of wheat bread and suddenly become ill, or broke out in hives? This is what happens to so many people with allergies. A food sensitivity test can help us identify the foods you are allergic to. Studies show that close to 50% of people have an allergic reaction to milk and gluten products, and in the United States, an estimated sixty-million people consume gluten-free products.

How To Perform Food Sensitivity Testing?

We perform a test called the ALCAT test that is designed to reveal a person’s food allergies by eliminating trigger foods. The experiment records the foods that disrupt the immune system, the digestive system, and the brain’s chemistry. The test can be identified as an eating program. Through this type of testing, we can eliminate foods that cause inflammation, which negatively affect the musculoskeletal system.

Following the completion of the test, anti-inflammatory foods are introduced into the diet, in addition to a healthy lifestyle of living. Most foods promote obesity, which increases the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. A mistaken view of obesity was defined as someone lacking will power or overeating. It is not until now, that questions have risen that sheds light on that fact that foods that are sensitive to the human body can cause inflammation, thus putting the body under stress.

Schedule Your Food Sensitivity Test at Nichols Chiropractic Today!

The ALCAT test can scientifically identify and verify your reactions to certain foods by measuring your intolerance. By doing this we can determine which foods are disrupting your immune system, digestive system and brain chemistry. When the body is fed the right nutrients, patients will experience weight loss and less body fat.
