Women related – strengthen your immune system!

The optimized choice of nutritional intake affects your immune system and your metabolism thoroughly positive. Before, during and after pregnancy, only indulge in the very best.

In the personally customized ALCAT nutritional program incompatible food triggers that don’t fit your personal chemistry will be omitted for 3-6 months. Your body – and thus your baby – will be therefore less stressed and burdened. The immune system can optimally work or relax and of course strengthen.

It is also believed that the ALCAT program optimizes detoxification. The immune system is less stressed and can better eliminate toxins and metabolic waste. This results in an optimized function of the diverting organs liver, kidney, skin and mucous membranes.

Fertility

Fecundity (fertility) is the ability of an organism to produce offspring. They can be affected by many external factors or interventions. It may be restricted by incompatible lifestyle, smoking, alcohol and drugs or medications. In women, the end of menstruation signals the menopause and thus the end of the reproductive years and in men fertility decreases as the 40th age up, depending on the constitution but can remain even in old age.

Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a special form of diabetes mellitus (see Diabetes mellitus). Again, a faulty hormone production is the cause. During pregnancy the glucose release is increased, because the body needs more sugar. The pancreas must therefore produce insulin to lower the blood glucose level. If the pancreas does not manage to produce more insulin, the result will be a so called true insulin deficiency. It may also be that the cells do not respond to the insulin stimulus resulting in the so-called relative insulin deficiency and, consequently gestational diabetes. Overweight or poor diet favor the development of gestational diabetes.

Weight management

Weight management means primarily reaching and holding of the normal weight range. For this, a program can be developed that guides to the desired result and lead to either weight gain or weight loss.

The ALCAT program provides the ideal foundation for a healthy and sustainable weight management – before, during or after pregnancy.

Polyarthritis

Here, the arthritis has spread to multiple joints in the body.

Water retention / edema

Water retention in tissues is called edema. Because of the water, the tissue is swollen and red but it is generally not painful. Edema can have various causes. The most common causes are heart failure, renal or venous disease, allergic reactions, inflammation, or side effect of medications. In principle, edema is caused due to excessively slow or disabled lymph drainage or hormonally. In the case of gestational edema, due to the increased production of estrogen, there is fluid retention in the connective tissue.

Menstruation

The word menstruation comes from the Latin word mensis “month” and describes the monthly recurrent bleeding from the uterus. The first menstrual period (menarche) begins in puberty, the last bleeding initiates the menopause. The monthly cycle is repeated approximately every 28 days and is controlled by interplay of hormones.

Detoxification

Detox and purification are concepts of alternative medicine. They describe the process of discharge of toxins and metabolic waste products. For this exist various detoxification methods. In principle, it means the increase of the work of diverting organs (liver, kidney, skin and mucous membranes).

The ALCAT program provides the perfect basis.

Example II, Metabolic PLUS protocol (270/220/170 agents)

The metabolic upgrade is recommended especially for metabolism, weight loss, digestin and skin:

  • 200/150/100 ALCAT 200 or ALCAT 150 Veg
  • 50 Chem:20 preservatives/colorings, 10 environmental chemicals, 20 pharmaceutica substances
  • 20 Myk:20 molds

 

Effectiveness and validation of the ALCAT Test ™ (selection)

Beginning in 1988 and carrying through to the present several clinical studies have been performed demonstrating the effectiveness of the ALCAT Test. Also *double-blind studies infodouble-blind studiesTo obtain an unbiased outcome the study must be carried out in double blind fashion wherein neither the doctor (investigator) nor test subject knows whether the food they are re-introducing has been indicated by the blood test as being either positive or negative. The test results are evaluated to see if they correlate with this, the, “gold standard” - a double blind oral challenge. This is a rigorous and time consuming protocol that yields an objective evaluation of both the sensitivity and the specificity of the test.
A valid test for food intolerance must measure the direct effect of food substances on precisely those cells of the immune system which are responsible for the biological effector function (chronic inflammation). If the test results are valid there should be in a concordance with symptoms (e.g., gastrointestinal complaints), and be demonstrable by double blind oral exposure.
for evaluation of the accuracy of a blood test for food intolerance were carried out to see how well the test results correlate with actually eating the food.

Why is that important?

This is important because you want the test to correctly identify reaction provoking substances; but, you also do not want the test to show false positives. The first parameter is called, “sensitivity”. The second is called, “specificity”. A false positive would cause you to needlessly eliminate a safe food. Why go through the trouble and deprivation?

Scientists have shown that in patients with irritable bowel syndrome, atopic eczema, allergic rhinitis or migraine the ALCAT Test™ can detect those foods that cause the above symptoms. The ALCAT Test™ has shown an impressive consistency in the double-blind study of 83.4% for foods. With standardized non biological substances, the accuracy is as high as 92%.

Gastrointestinal, skin & weight loss

1. In a randomized controlled weight loss trial of the Baylor Medical College, USA in 1996, the results showed that the 98% (49 out of 50) of the subjects who followed the ALCAT protocol experienced improvement for weight reduction and/or body composition. The control group showed only modest success of these parameters, and these results were statistically significant. (Kaats GR. Et al, 1996).

2. The effect of the ALCAT Test™ diet for food intolerance in patients with obesity (Akmal M. et al, 2009): The diet based on the ALCAT Test™ resulted in significant weight reduction, percentage of body fat and body mass index. During the 12 week ALCAT diet also other symptoms, such as physical performance, bloating, digestive problems, and headaches, improved.

Important notes - what does ALCAT not test for?

There is a clear distinction between the ALCAT test and other methods. Nevertheless, it is sometimes confusing.

Note: The ALCAT Test™ is not a food allergy test (Type I (IgE)! Allergy tests are measuring reactions of the specific immune system while the ALCAT TEST ™ captures predominantly cellular responses of the innate immune system.

  • The ALCAT Test™ is not a provocation test to determine a fructose intolerance, histamine intolerance or lactose intolerance.
  • It would be incorrect to confuse the ALCAT Test ™ with the cytotoxic test, a microscopic examination of white blood cells.
  • The ALCAT Test™ is not a test method to determine enzymatic defects, per se
  • The ALCAT TEST™ is not kinesiology or a hair analysis to determine food intolerance.

The ALCAT test is a validated method for identification of foods and other substances that trigger inflammation.
