MRT is considered the “Gold Standard” for food sensitivity testing, it has the highest level of accuracy of any food sensitivity blood test. This is a blood test that measures your body’s reaction to 150 different foods and food chemicals in your diet. MRT measures the quantity of the immune reaction to tested foods, providing a report showing the reaction level to each food and food chemical tested. This gives you and I insight into your inflammation provoking foods and food chemicals, which is important information when building eating plans. What’s the BIG benefit to you once you have been tested? MRT tells us your BEST foods, laying the basis for building your LEAP eating plan and getting you feeling better quick!

What do I mean when I say LEAP (Lifestyle Eating and Performance)?

This is an eating plan that is built around your Mediator Release Test. We use your least reactive foods to start to build your LEAP eating plan so you can heal from the inside out one bite at a time! How exciting, right? The LEAP eating plan is meant to calm inflammation in your body that may be contributing to your medical symptoms. Together we will build your meal plan with your least reactive foods, you will follow this for the first two weeks (Phase 1). The next process is to gradually reintroduce higher reactive foods (Phases 2-5) back into your diet determining your body’s tolerance. The final stage of this process is to reintroduce non-tested foods, moderately reactive foods and then your highest reactive foods. Again determining your body’s tolerance every step of the way.
