I was all set to order a FICA test from Immunolabs but recently have read about the ALCAT test from AMTL Corp. , are you familiar with these tests and if so , which would you recommend. I talked to the lab director at Immuno and he told me of the differences between their test and that of standard IgE/IgG4 tests. I understand now why you didn't get good results with Meridian Valley. The book on the ALCAT test is by Rudy Rivera,MD, ever hear of him?

I still don't think the blood tests come anywhere close to using your own bodymind as the laboratory: elimination/provocation testing. This is BY FAR the most accurate and least expensive way to determine what is effecting YOU. See notes by Robert Mc Ferran on this subject.
This is a lot more work for you but consider your goal!
