Allergy Testing and Treatment
The Alcat Test is a lab based immune stimulation test in which a patient's WBC's are challenged with various substances. These include foods, additives, colorings, chemicals, medicinal herbs, functional foods, molds and pharmaceutical compounds. The patient's unique set of responses helps to identify substances that may trigger potentially harmful immune system reactions. When it comes to allergies, there are multiple options for managing and assisting the condition.
Firstly, the doctors at Keystone Physical Medicine approach allergies from a holistic/alternative view first. Then, if necessary, take a more invasive treatment. The Alcat test gives us a baseline for how the body is reacting to certain stimulus. Then we combine the test results with the patient’s history and current symptoms in order to decide which treatment route is most beneficial.
