Food Allergy Testing
Food and/or chemical sensitivities can actually cause symptoms that mimic some of the physical issues that are often connected to aging, such as fatigue, aching joints and gastrointestinal disorders. BodyLogicMD relies upon the ALCAT Test to identify exactly which foods and chemicals are triggering an individual's problems. A customized nutritional plan is tailored to fit your unique needs to help optimize both your hormone balance and overall health.
ALCAT Worldwide – Preferred Partner of PascualMD
Cell Science Systems, the ALCAT Worldwide Laboratory, is dedicated to educating and supplying healthcare practitioners and consumers with nutritional products aimed at improving health through nutritional testing and healthy eating.
The ALCAT test is a minimally invasive blood test that accurately and reproducibly measures biological cellular reactivity in whole blood. Unlike standard IgG tests, which rely exclusively on one immune pathway and merely detects exposure, the ALCAT test is the premier test for detecting food allergies, mold and chemical sensitivities/intolerances.
Food sensitivity is proven to activate the immune system, resulting in reduced function over time. It also impacts energy levels and can be linked to common disorders such as fatigue, weight gain, migraine headaches, skin issues and irritable bowel syndrome. Dietary recommendations based upon testing provide the means to minimize the impact of external components on body aging.
How The ALCAT Test Works:
The ALCAT test objectively measures changes in size and number of white blood cells in response to ex vivo challenges with foods, chemicals and other environmental stimuli. Scores are generated by relating the patients’ own blood without test substrate to their tested, reactive blood. Results are designated into four categories – Severe Intolerance, Moderate Intolerance, Mild Intolerance and Acceptable Foods – on a color coded print-out that is accessible online by the prescribing doctor or by hard copy. An individualized rotation diet is included in the results.
The superior expertise and quality of ALCAT Worldwide make them an ideal partner for Pascual MD’s high standards.
Thank you Dr. Pascual, I have lost over 90 pounds and I feel great! My health, self-esteem and looks have improved dramatically.
For the first time in a long time, I am happy when I look in the mirror each morning. I can see a difference in the way I look and how I feel about myself! I noticed a huge boost in my self-confidence! Thank you Dr. Pascual!
So it has been almost 6 months since my last review and slightly longer since my Vaser Hi-Def procedure from Dr Jeffrey LaGrasso as Pascual MD in Aventura. Still very happy I did the procedure, very happy with the outcome and glad I did it. The facility was extremely clean, I felt safe and the doctor made me feel like he had everything under control…
I am very happy I found Dr. Pascual. I love her practice; from the ambience to the staff. Dr. Pascual is truly a professional she makes me feel comfortable, it is wonderful to know that I can count on her support. Thank you Dr. Pascual for helping me look and feel great.
