A well-rounded diagnosis is impossible to conclude without the tools necessary to assess and analyze the patient’s condition. Diagnostic services in our Physical Medicine Clinic include Alcat (Antigen Leukocyte Cellular Tests) and Spectracell Micronutrient Test. Each one of these tests serves a specific function in pinpointing exactly where inflammation and stress are causing pain in the patient’s body.
Food and chemical sensitivities can cause many problems for our general wellbeing. From gastrointestinal disorders like IBS and Crohn’s to inflammatory conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, the Alcat Test can identify the foods that are responsible for these reactions.
The Alcat Test will check for sensitivities that you may have to certain foods and chemicals. More than 450 substances are tested at once! When the body is unable to metabolize certain foods, these foods are identified as “trigger foods.”
These trigger foods can cause a variety of health conditions:
- Digestive problems (IBS and Crohn’s)
- Eczema / Psoriasis
- Sleeplessness / Fatigue
- Headaches / Migraines
- Weight Gain / Obesity
- Plus many more!
SpectraCell Micronutrient Tests
SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing is used to get to the root of issues such as fatigue, stress, and even depression. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies. These tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells.
