Food sensitivities can play a role in many conditions. They are the most prevalent category of diet-induced inflammatory reactions. The problem food, chemical or additive triggers an immune response, which then causes inflammatory symptoms like migraine, diarrhea, joint pain, skin issues and brain fog. With the MRT, or mediator release test, and LEAP therapy, we can work together to find the foods that work best for you, calm the immune system and relieve unwanted symptoms.

What is mrt?

The MRT is a blood test that measures your body's immune reaction to 170 different foods and food chemicals. Unlike other food sensitivity tests, it measures if a reaction is happening in your body when exposed to the problem foods. It is the most accurate and most comprehensive test available for determining food sensitivities. 

what is leap therapy?

LEAP stands for Lifestyle Eating And Performance. LEAP therapy is a specially designed eating plan based on your current diet and your specific MRT results. It starts with your least reactive foods for about 2 weeks to calm the immune system and see symptom improvement. Then, foods are slowly added in to build your diet. Your certified LEAP therapist knows food sensitivities and complex conditions to better guide you through the process and troubleshoot problems.
