ALCAT Cell Science Systems food allergy and intolerance testing is now available with Dr. Chad Cohle at Cohle Performance Chiropractic in Harrisburg, PA!

Are foods making you sick? Inflammation and chronic activation of the immune system due to food intolerance has been linked to numerous disorders including:

  • Digestive disorders
  • Migraines
  • Obesity
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Aching Joints
  • Skin Disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Autism
  • And many more…

The ALCAT test, offered at Cohle Performance Chiropractic in Harrisburg, PA can diagnose these food intolerances and offer a proven method to eliminate inflammation from foods. The immune system can be our best friend as well as a capable enemy. It should respond appropriately to protect your body against foreign invaders like bacteria or viruses. However, occasionally the immune system can overreact to everyday foods, chemicals and molds. These substances can then initiate the chronic activation of the immune system, resulting in chronic inflammation.

The test involves drawing blood and measuring personalized nutrition at a cellular level. This blood test measures the body’s cellular (and inflammatory) response when in contact with a wide variety of substances including 200 different foods, functional foods (i.e. aloe vera, acai berry, agave), additives, colorings, medicinal herbs, chemicals, molds and fungi. The level of reactivity gives an extremely accurate insight into what substances are causing inflammation.

The blood draw can be done in our office, at your home or business, or you can make an appointment at their office located in Harrisburg. Once the blood is drawn, the vials are sealed in a pre-paid envelope that ensures next day delivery to the lab. Approximately 5 days later, the results are available for Dr. Cohle online and he will call to set up an appointment to discuss the results. You will also receive a folder containing your results, the 4 Day Rotation Diet and a booklet explaining all of the substances that were tested. The test also comes with a free 30-minute consultation and discussion with the nutritionist from ALCAT to help you with your rotation diet and any questions you may have.

The ALCAT test is also highly recommended for athletes. Among others who credit the ALCAT test for improving their performance the Orlando Magic, David Ortiz, Iron Man champions and the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks all have seen great results with the test. Dr. Cohle also offers salivary hormone testing from the same company. This is an accurate, cheaper and less invasive method to assess hormone levels and adrenal stress levels.

If you are experiencing any of the conditions listed above, or have some health issue that doesn’t seem to resolve despite trying several methods, call Dr. Cohle at 717 503 9454 to schedule a free consult in Harrisburg!
