The Alcat Test is a lab based immune stimulation test in which a patient’s WBC’s are challenged with various substances including foods, additives, colorings, chemicals, medicinal herbs, functional foods, molds and pharmaceutical compounds. The patient’s unique set of responses help to identify substances that may trigger potentially harmful immune system reactions.
The Alcat Test objectively classifies a patient’s response to each test substance as reactive, borderline or non-reactive. Based on these classifications, a cus-tomized elimination/rotation diet may be designed to effectively eliminate the specific triggers of chronic immune system activation. By reducing this ongoing burden – and in particular, by reversing the sustained and destructive inflammation it produces – normal body functions and immune system balance can be improved.
Metagenics was founded in 1983 on a brave new scientific concept: how the right nutrition could help people realize their best health possible by influencing what makes them unique—their genes. Back then we called it “genetic potential through nutrition.” It also makes us unique—it’s been our mission and a key differentiator ever since.
The Physiotherapy treatment of musculoskeletal injuries has progressed from its foundation in remedial gymnastics and active exercise to therapist-applied passive physiological movements and on to therapist-applied accessory techniques. Brian Mulligan’s concept of mobilizations with movement (MWMS) in the extremities and sustained natural apophyseal glides (SNAGS) in the spine are the logical continuance of this evolution with the concurrent application of both therapist applied accessory and patient generated active physiological movements.

NAIOMT was founded in the United States by Canadian physiotherapists, manual therapy instructors and examiners, Erl Pettman, James Meadows, Cliff Fowler and the late David Lamb, to facilitate their philosophy of the sharing of manual therapy skills. In 1982 they began teaching a series of four manual therapy course levels in Seattle, San Francisco, Denver and Knoxville. The Clinical Residency program began in 1993, and was credentialed as a fellowship program in 2001.
The NAIOMT system has evolved from the Canadian manual therapy program to provide a progressive series of courses and instruction with a strong emphasis on biomechanics, mobilization/manipulation and the interaction of the extremity with the spine (the quadrant system). The Canadian system is possibly the first eclectic manual therapy system, encourages diversity in approaches and avoids adherence to a single view or system.
NAIOMT became incorporated in the State of Oregon in 1994. It is governed by a Board of Directors who are physical therapists and clinicians, with day to day operations the responsibility of its various divisions and the Executive Committee. The majority of the faculty provides clinical instruction and resides in the US.
