I used a company called ALCAT. Via a blood test, I was tested for sensitivites to foods, additives, chemicals and pollens etc. Out of 200 items, I tested positive to well over half — definitely not normal. As part of the program, you’re placed on a 4-day rotation diet, so you exclude the foods you reacted to and then rotate your ‘okay’ foods every 4 days. After a week, I started reacting to foods on my ‘okay’ list. That’s when I knew there was something else going on with my body and ultimately tested positive for candida (and leaky gut). The ALCAT diet definitely helped me prior to getting on the strict candida diet, but I would pose this question: Why invest the money (it’s expensive) and time, without first doing another stool test for candida? Food sensitivies go hand-in-hand with a bad leaky gut. Here’s the ALCAT website: http://www.alcat.com Good luck!
