Dear Colleague:

I am writing at this time as a Board-Certified Family Medicine specialist in Traditional Western Medicine with over 20 years’ experience at Mayo Clinic where I served as the Medical Editor of the Mayo clinic Health Letter and taught at Mayo Medical School. I am also writing as a specialist who is Boarded and Certified in Integrative Medicine, Holistic Medicine and Functional Medicine.

I would like to encourage you to look at the attached reprint from Leaders Magazine; an interview with Roger Deutsch, CEO and Founder of Cell Science Systems, which speaks to the existence of a relatively new technology, the Alcat Test, which has recently been independently validated at Yale School of Medicine. The Yale researchers showed it to be clinically useful diagnostic tool for the identification of foods and other substances that trigger gastrointestinal and potentially many other illnesses. Its relatively low cost, ease of use, and clinical utility, lead me to believe that its adoption will make a serious dent in healthcare expenditure. It can serve as a viable complement to conventional approaches to treating many common maladies making diagnosis more accurate and thus relieving much patient suffering.

I commend to your attention the leading-edge testing procedures that have been developed and standardized by Cell Science Systems for identifying food sensitivities. There are a number of methods that attempt to test for reactivity to food and other substances. I believe, however, based on the mechanisms involved that the Cell Science System Alcat Test offers distinct advantages in clinical practice. If it were more widely available I feel that the root cause of a number of different autoimmune, gastrointestinal and system-wide disease states could be improved for many patients.

Thank you in advance for your consideration of this matter.

With respect,

Robert D. Sheeler, M.D.
