LEAP/MRT: Food Sensitivity Testing & Diet


What is Mediator Release Testing & The LEAP Food Allergy Treatment?

Are you suffering from a stubborn health problem that will not go away no matter what you try? Or perhaps the medications and treatments you take are not getting at the root cause of your illness and you want something that will? If you feel this way, or know someone that does, consider some important facts:

  • Medical Research has shown that sensitivities to foods and food-chemicals can cause an inflammatory response that can lead to a wide array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems such as IBS, Fibromyalgia, Migraines, IC, PCOS, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
  • If foods and additives in your diet are involved in your illness, whatever medications you take will ultimately fail because they only mask the symptoms. They do not treat the underlying cause of the symptoms. And is too often the case, many medications have side effects that can lead to other health problems.
  • If food sensitivities are causing your illness and you do not properly address them, you could end up suffering for years, spending thousands of dollars for treatments that will never produce the relief you desire.

Millions of Americans suffer from food sensitivities. Many other uncomfortable lingering health problems are often directly related to specific immune reactions to the foods we eat. Even so-called “healthy” foods such as salmon, chicken, apples, spinach, blueberries, or garlic can provoke symptoms in sensitive individuals. As chronic pelvic pain specialists, we recognize that dietary changes are so important to the journey back to health. Many chronic issues have the underlying issue is inflammation. In my practice I have seen tremendous positive results when clients with chronic illness commit to this process.

LEAP-MRT can help you quickly overcome even the most troublesome food sensitivity related problems. LEAP-MRT includes a patented blood test called MRT (Mediator Release Test) which accounts for all 7 types of food sensitivity reactions. In comparison, ELISA IgG, the most popular food sensitivity blood test can only detect 1 out of 7 different types of reactions. This means LEAP-MRT will give you faster and more complete relief than other methods. In fact, independent studies confirm MRT is the most accurate and most comprehensive blood test there is for food and food-chemical reactions.
