In July of 2011, I had what my rheumatologist called "a full blown world class case of reactive arthritis". At the time I alternated between crutches and a wheelchair and spent most of my days trapped in bed icing my knees, ankles, and hands as I suffered inflammatory attacks throughout the day. While I was receiving methotrexate and on NSAIDs I still had attacks. The number and severity of these attacks was greatly reduced by eliminating the...

It was very easy to do. The results surprised me! Without the test, I think it would have taken me weeks or months of trial & error to come up with those results. It gave me a head start. ...

It’s been almost two months since I started my rotation diet after taking the Alcat Test. I am so happy, and it seems that, little by little, I am getting rid of the underlying cause for the remaining inflammation I had. Things have been happening in small steps. I never went to sleep one night to wake up the next day pain free, as it all began. However, every day has been a step ahead, and when for unknown reason a joint got...

I had the Alcat testing done in January after experiencing increased pain from osteoarthritis and rashes after eating. I have had wonderful results. A lessening of pain in my joints and no more rashes except a few times when I ate something that I shouldn't have. In fact, I was getting cortisone shots in my thumb because of bone on bone and arthritis. I cancelled my last shot because my thumb has not been hurting. It's been over 4 months now...

It's 123 days since I gave up all medication and 45 days following the ALCAT diet and it's working. All my major joints now have very little pain, I have full strength and movement in them. There is only minor swelling in my hands and feet. I am yet to determine what is causing the last of my inflammation, but I will get to the bottom of it. I know my body is now healing which is wonderful. More people need to know what you've discovered. On...

In Sept 2011 I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. In two months I had gone from a very active, physical athlete to walking with a significant limp. All sports activities came to a halt. I also have four children (under 9) that I was having trouble keeping up with. I was reluctant to get up and walk to the kitchen due to the pain I felt in my ankles and feet. After scouring the internet, I ran across Barbara's story. I called ...

ALCAT Evaluation

The ALCAT Test

When I first wrote the book Conquering Arthritis the only reliable way I knew to test for delayed food hypersensitivities was elimination of all possible problem foods either through fasting or through a very limited hypoallergenic diet and then testing by selective reintroduction. This still works and I still recommend it, but since then I have also discovered a blood test that is an even better place to start.

The name of the test is the ALCAT test. The ALCAT can screen for sensitivity reactions against any of a hundred or so common foods, many food additives and chemicals in our environment.

Bottom line: This test gives you a huge head start in your healing process. Even in the rare event that you have no food sensitivities, you will know for sure that you don't and can stop wasting your time and effort wondering if food and chemical sensitivities are contributing to your problems.

My New Food Sensitivity Testing Recommendation

I still highly recommend fasting because of the healing it initiates all on its own, totally apart from using it to identify food sensitivities, but if you have the $700 (least expensive option) to $1100 or so (most expensive option) that the ALCAT test plus blood draw costs, I highly recommend it as well. This is because it is such an easy way to screen for many substances, all at once. It takes so much of the guesswork and time consuming trial and error out of sensitivity testing.

You can even test for sensitivity to many environmental chemicals that you would never want to voluntarily expose yourself to.

The least expensive test I recommend buying the Comprehensive Wellness 3 test panel.  It costs $675.  It isn’t as good as the more expensive versions, because it doesn’t test for as many foods and substances, but it does test for enough to give people with arthritis a good start on identifying all their triggers.  You will likely have to supplement this test with some testing on your own (like I describe in my Conquering Arthritis book) to completely identify and master all the triggers to your inflammation.

If you are on a tight budget, I recommend buying the Comprehensive Wellness 3 test panel.  It costs $675.  It tests for:

  • 150 foods
  • 10 food additives
  • 10 food colorings
  • 10 environmental chemicals
  • 20 types of mold.

If you are actively taking anti-inflammatory drugs you might also want to be tested with the 10 Anti-inflammatory Agents Panel.  

The ALCAT company made a special test panel they are calling the “Barbara Allan” panel.  This panel tests for everything in the Comprehensive Wellness 3 panel plus these ten anti-inflammatory drugs:

  1. Advil/Motrin
  2. Aleve 
  3. Aspirin 
  4. Clinoril
  5. Dolobid
  6. Feldene
  7. Indocin
  8. Penicillamine
  9. Tylenol
  10. Voltaren

If you are tested, you will know if you have an adverse reaction to any of these drugs.

If you would like to be extra comprehensive I also offer the deluxe Platinum Comprehensive Panel for $1099 which tests for everything the alcat company can test for. This panel comes with a free nutritional consultation provided by the ALCAT company. Knowledge is power.  If you can afford it, this is unquestionably the best version of the ALCAT test to take.  The more you know, the easier it is to heal.

  • 200 foods
  • 10 food additives
  • 10 food colorings
  • 20 molds
  • 50 functional foods and medicinal herbs
  • 10 environmental chemicals
  • 10 antibiotics
  • And 10 anti-inflammatory agents

If you have special needs, please contact my office.  We will work with you to put together the perfect combination for your needs.  For instance there is a 50 food panel for children 3 and under and a special 150 food panel for vegetarians.  We can also upgrade our other packages from testing 150 foods to testing 200 foods. 

You can view the exact foods and other substances tested for here.

However, make sure you purchase through this website or our office

where I go over your test results with you.

Once You Have Ordered
Alcat will ship your test kit to you using FedEx. After shipping your test kit, Alcat will call you to help you arrange for a blood draw. 

Alcat works with a large list of draw sites around the United States. This includes Concentra Labs, hospitals, medical facilities, and other locations.  Alcat also has an Exam One Mobil phlebotomy service which can come to your home or office.  Both of these services each cost $50.

If you live outside of the United States, call the ALCAT folks to see what is available in your area: (954) 426-2304.

Once you have had the blood draw, it takes a couple weeks to get your results back.  Good educational materials are included with the test results to help you know how to best use the results.
