Available for over 25 years, the ALCAT Test identifies cellular reactions to over 350 foods, chemicals and herbs. These inflammatory reactions are linked to chronic health problems like obesity and diabetes, as well as skin, heart, joint, and digestive disorders. Dr. Karen Kan will interview Dr. BlyWeiss about how this test works and who should get one.

Dr. Blyweiss began his medical career as a clinical pharmacist in South Florida prior to earning his medical degree from St. George's University School of Medicine in 1982. This dual background allowed him to appreciate the relevance of conventional pharmaceutical/surgical based treatments in acute medical conditions, but also to recognize where these approaches fell short in treating the majority of patients who suffered from the chronic degenerative diseases of "western civilization origin".

Dr. Blyweiss became an early adherent and experienced practitioner of what would become known as "functional medicine". Dr. Blyweiss has used this matrix of systems biology to effectively manage and alleviate the symptoms related to the most "difficult-to-treat" conditions by addressing the underlying causes, allowing the body to heal itself.

He is adjunct faculty at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Center for integrative medicine helping to train both future and practicing physicians in “ functional medicine”. He is both a local authority and national speaker on functional medicine.

He is currently in private practice in South Florida where he resides with his family.
