This could literally change your life forever

 

I will be the first to say that these diet topics get so confusing and contradicting, that it’s understandable why most people just ignore them and eat what they want. One expert says that gluten is a poison, and the next one says it’s a safe staple of our diet. Just this morning, an article hit the Wall Street Journal that was titled “This Story Is Gluten-Free” which went on to say that organic food is probably not any better than conventionally grown and GMO foods are completely safe.  His closing line was “Perhaps on July 4th we should all resolve to enjoy factory-raised grilled meats and be grateful for what's left of the freedom to make our own decisions.” This article was written by a well educated guy who has been involved with business and finance his whole career, and published by a highly respected paper.

Quiz: What do all of these have in common... heart disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, acne, stroke, depression, eczema, autoimmune diseases, and obesity? If you said inflammation, then you will be receiving a free set of steak knives (joking of course). But seriously, it’s inflammation… chronic inflammation to be more specific.

This is a universal issue that we all need to be aware of.  Sensitivities to foods and other substances cause a reaction by our immune system and over time, this can result in a host of problems.  

Even though we sell the Alcat test, please don’t dismiss this as a sales letter... you never have to take the test to benefit from this article!  Below, I will cover:

  1. What is a food sensitivity and how can it affect me?

  2. How does the Alcat test work?

  3. What can I do today, even if I don’t take the test?

 

What is a food sensitivity and how can it affect me?

If you learn just one thing from this article, then let it be this... you can be sensitive to anything you put in or on your body.  The results of that sensitivity can be subtle and delayed, making it very tricky to figure out.  However, just being aware to the fact that you could be sensitive...
