Food Sensitivities

 

The root cause of many chronic health issues, including excess weight, can be traced to inflammation somewhere in the body.

The culprit is often a food sensitivity (or multiple sensitivities)

When we eat a food that our body is sensitive to,
our body produces an immune response to defend itself.

The result is inflammation


Consider this:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis is inflammation of the joints
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome is inflammation of the stomach and intestine
  • Migraines are inflammation of the blood vessels in the head
  • Multiple Sclerosis is scar tissue damage from inflammation of the myelin sheaths surrounding the nerves
  • Fibromyalgia is inflammation of the tendons and joints

How do you find out for sure what foods or food additives are causing inflammation in your body?

The answer you’ve been waiting for is called…

The Mediator Release Test (MRT)

This is the most accurate and comprehensive test to tell you which foods and food chemicals might be causing your symptoms. It’s a simple blood test that tests for reactivity to 170 food and food chemicals.

With this test, you’ll finally know which foods and chemicals are triggering the inflammation that leads to your symptoms. No more guessing.

You could have your results in 14 days or less and experience a 50-70% reduction in your symptoms in less than a month.

What Will Your MRT Program Include?

Review symptoms, health history and goals.
Assess appropriateness for MRT.
Determine plan. Order MRT Test.

Together we will review your MRT results, highlight key dietary changes and create a plan to implement Phase 1 of your LEAP diet including help with planning meals, snacks and beverages.
60 minutes; 7-10 days after starting Phase 1

You’ll be halfway through Phase 1 and we’ll review your Food & Symptom Diary, answer any questions you have and plan which foods are safe to include in Phase 2 of your diet.

60 minutes each; spaced 1-2 weeks apart

At this point you’ll be feeling significantly better. You’ll be ready to start adding in even more foods so together we’ll choose which foods to include for Phases 3-5. I will help you make a plan to start transitioning back to a more expanded way of eating.

60 minutes, scheduled 6-8 weeks after starting LEAP

You will be feeling so good by this point and ready for a long-term maintenance plan. We will start adding more new foods and rotating the ones you’ve been eating.

10-minute free email/phone support per week.
