The New Year is the time when everyone looks back and swears not to repeat the mistakes of the past year by making firm resolutions to eat healthy, exercise more, and lose the extra pounds. The fact that we do so every year implies that many of us did not achieve our hopes despite our resolutions last year, the year before that, and so on. Here is some helpful advice on how to achieve and even exceed your health goals.
We’re all familiar with how gluten-containing grains can induce autoimmune celiac disease in genetically susceptible individuals. This is a crippling disease. Gluten can also induce non-celiac gluten sensitivities in anyone – not as dangerous as full blown celiac but still potentially debilitating.

As important as gluten is, other foods, like dairy, yeast, and just about any food, can induce other serious gastroenteropathies, like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and the less diagnostically distinct group of disorders known as irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. Health starts in the gut, but the wrong food can induce conditions that target any organ system or part of the body; joints, neurology, skin, respiratory system, including metabolic function (excess body weight, an independent risk factor for many disorders, including COVID-19 fatality), and many others.

Cell Science Systems continues to churn out studies from institutions like Yale, Baylor, Univ. of Texas, and others, that confirm that individualized eating patterns based on Alcat testing for food and chemical sensitivities can normalize weight, eliminate GI disorders, relieve migraines, arthritis, and other autoimmune conditions.

Any food can be problematic for any individual. It is often a food one craves or is generally considered healthful, but we all have our own unique body chemistry and genetic makeup, and there are many pathways that are involved in such sensitivities. Therefore, predicting which food or foods are the culprit is challenging – except if you use the Alcat test. It is well worth checking out all the scientific papers, reports, and testimonials on, and fulfill this year’s resolutions to be the healthiest you, you can be.
