FOOD SENSITIVITY TEST
IS YOUR FOOD MAKING YOU SICK?
Are you suffering from a stubborn health problem that won’t go away no matter what you try? Or perhaps the medications and treatments you’re taking aren’t actually getting at the root cause of your illness – but you want something that will? Medical research has shown that sensitivities to food and food-chemicals can be involved in a wide array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems. Sensitivities are a type of inflammatory reactions that is entirely different than food allergy and most doctors are unaware they are different. If foods and additives in your diet are contributing to your illness, whatever medications you take will ultimately fail because they only mask the symptoms. They don’t treat the underlying cause of the symptoms – hidden inflammation caused by sensitivity reactions to foods and food-chemicals
If food sensitivities are causing your illness and you don’t properly address them, you could easily end up suffering for many years, spending thousands of dollars for treatments that will never work the way you want. This is the experience of millions of Americans who have misdiagnosed or neglected food sensitivities.
IDENTIFY HIDDEN INFLAMMATORY CAUSES
There are also complexities with how the inflammatory process occurs inside the body making it impossible for traditional allergy tests to identify sensitive foods. Remember – these are sensitivities not allergies. Unfortunately most doctors know about food allergy but are unaware of food sensitivities. Therefore, if they don’t know about food sensitivities they won’t know the signs and symptoms of them, and won’t be able to guide you correctly in how to identify your hidden reactive foods. Fortunately, the patented Mediator Release Test (MRT®) can make this difficult situation much easier. MRT® is a simple but very powerful blood test. MRT® is patented because it provides clinically relevant information that no other sensitivity blood test can provide. MRT® is the only blood test that quantifies the inflammatory response to foods and food-chemicals, letting you know not just which foods you should stay away from, but more importantly which foods are your BEST foods – those with the lowest level of reactivity.
RESET YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Strip out the trigger foods with the LEAP Anti-Inflammatory Eating Plan, a plan specifically formulated based on your results from the MRT® test. LEAP is so much more than just a computer generated rotation diet based on the results of a blood test. It is a complete system of developing a healthy, anti-inflammatory eating plan for each patient.
The MRT®-based LEAP anti-inflammatory eating plan routinely produces the most complete outcomes in the shortest time. Common food sensitivity related conditions typically achieve rapid, lasting relief in as little as 5-7 days. In fact, in properly selected patients, it is highly uncommon to not see a noticeable change in just 2 weeks.
The dietary management strategies used in the LEAP Program are not the same as those found in fad diets. The LEAP Program is an individually tailored dietary wellness program which can be used for your whole life. Most of our patients find that after a few weeks of sticking to their program, LEAP becomes a habit and becomes a natural part of their day-to-day living. In addition, our patients usually feel so much better they don’t want to return to their old eating habits.

HOW FOOD SENSITIVITIES CAUSE INFLAMMATION
Sensitivities are complex non-allergic, non-celiac inflammatory reactions that can involve both innate and adaptive immune pathways. A variety of triggering mechanisms trigger reactions in various types of white cells leading to the release of proinflammatory and proalgesic mediators, such as cytokines, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins. Mediator release and cellular reactivity ultimately results in subclinical and clinical inflammatory effects manifesting in a variety of clinical conditions and symptoms.
THE MOST COMPLETE BLOOD TEST FOR FOOD SENSITIVITIES
Despite all of the clinical and immunologic complexities associated with food sensitivities, the single common component of all diet-induced inflammatory reactions is proinflammatory and proalgesic mediator release from white cells. It’s the release of cytokines, histamine, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc., from neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils and lymphocytes that lead to all the negative clinical effects a food sensitivity sufferer endures. This is true under all of the numerous immunologic circumstances and clinical circumstances associated with food sensitivities. Because of the vast array of potential mediators and reacting cells, measuring volumetric changes in all circulating white cells after antigen challenge is the most logical, direct, comprehensive and functional measure of food sensitivity reactions. It simply makes the most sense.
Research on MRT® confirms this. Studies with the University of Miami and research presented at major medical conferences show that MRT® is able to distinguish between symptomatic and asymptomatic populations, that MRT® correlates with inflammation and symptoms, that diets based on MRT® show significant symptom reduction, and that MRT® has excellent real-world reproducibility.
Conversely, a large body of research has shown that elevated mechanisms in food sensitivity, such as food-specific IgG or immune complexes, do not reliably correlate with inflammation or symptoms.
Mediator release is the key event that leads to every negative effect your patients suffer. What matters clinically is that mediator release, and thus an inflammatory response has occurred – not that a potential mechanism is elevated.
This is the clinical value of MRT®. MRT® is a functional measurement of diet-induced sensitivity pathways. MRT® simplifies a highly complex reaction and translates that into the most useable clinical information you can get – quantifying the inflammatory response to foods and food-chemicals.
Not only does MRT® give insight into inflammation provoking foods and food-chemicals, but more importantly MRT® identifies your patient’s BEST foods – the foods that form the basis of their LEAP Eating Plan.
Simply put, MRT® gives you information you can’t get any other way, and that information directly translates into targeted therapy that matters.
MRT® is the foundation of fully addressing food sensitivities and achieving the maximum outcomes in the shortest period of time. This is our goal.
