Is Your Food Making You Sick?

HowFoodSensitivitiesCauseIllness-661x102311MRT Testing is used to determine Mediator release, which is often the direct cause of multiple symptoms experienced in immune mediated food chemical sensitivities. The MRT (Mediator Release Test) accurately isolates which specific foods and/or additives that provoke ANY form of non-IgE mediated hypersensitivity reactions.  It is a common end-point, whole blood assay. This new test is patented and based on an innovative method of measurement of blood components, previously not possible.  These non IgE mediated reactions cause release of pro-inflammatory and pain causing mediators throughout all organ systems and then systemically throughout the body, creating multiple symptoms. Examples of these symptoms include:  chronic headaches, fatigue, muscle & joint pain, diarrhea or constipation, sinus problems, bloating, gas and other gastrointestinal issues.

This situation is often described by clients as feeling “lousy” at best and “horrible” at worst, all the time.  People who have been diagnosed with other allergies, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and migraine headaches especially benefit from MRT testing and the LEAP program.

MRT Testing has also shown food sensitivity issues in persons who also suffer from autism, ADD, arthritis, GERD, chronic cough, sinusitis, insomnia, and weight imbalances.  MRT Testing and the LEAP Program have also been successful in helping world class athletes perform at their best.

LEAP Program (Lifestyle Eating And Performance)

This program helps clients remediate these body wide symptoms of mediator release through dietary therapy based on the individualized results of the MRT test.  Clinical trials, numerous studies, and client results show that clients, who are appropriately screened for this testing and dietary therapy, benefit tremendously with significant improvement in symptomology and performance.Testing alone is neither recommended, nor offered, as this is a complex medical-nutritional condition and we treat it in a comprehensive manner. Insurance coverage with physician referral can be verified for the MRT portion of this program.  Currently Medicare, MediCal and HMO’s do NOT cover this test.

A 4 to 6 month MRT and LEAP Program includes initial consultation, MRT test, nutritional counseling/dietary therapy, and if needed, a maintenance program. The initial consultation takes approximately an hour to 1 1/2 hours.  It involves assessment of your nutritional status & concerns, by a registered dietitian, and determination if the MRT test and LEAP program is appropriate for you.

Medical information is required and a packet of forms, to be completed prior to the consult, will be mailed to you.
