IS YOUR FOOD MAKING YOU SICK?
Adverse reactions to foods and food chemicals can play a role in many common illnesses:
Neglecting food sensitivities or not fully managing them is often the difference between treatment failure and treatment success, or achieving modest outcomes versus complete remission.
As a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist with specialized food sensitivity training I can help you figure out exactly what you need to do to find lasting relief. Contact me to set up a consultation to find out if your food is indeed making you sick.

INTRODUCING LEAP: THE SOLUTION TO FOOD SENSITIVITIES
The first thing a food sensitivity sufferer needs to do is identify their trigger foods and food chemicals. In the past, this has been easier said than done for many reasons: Food sensitivity reactions may be delayed by hours or even days after ingestion. Even if you suspect food sensitivities, would you consider that the headache you have right now was caused by something you ate yesterday? And often, food sensitivities are dose-related. This means a small or moderate amount of a reactive food may not cause any noticeable symptoms, but a larger amount does. Or perhaps when you eat 2-3 moderately reactive foods at the same time, you get symptoms. But if you ate only 1 of those foods you wouldn’t. If that wasn’t enough of a challenge, reactive foods vary widely from person to person, even if they have the same symptoms, and there are usually many reactive foods and food-chemicals, not just one or two.
In addition, the most common blood test used to help identify sensitive foods (ELISA IgG) can only detect one lesser kind of sensitivity reaction (Type 3, which covers only about 25% of food sensitivity reactions). Plus, IgG testing can’t identify reactions to food-chemicals. Fortunately there's a program called LEAP® that can help you quickly overcome even the most troublesome food sensitivity related problems. LEAP includes a patented blood test called MRT® (Mediator Release Test®) that accounts for both Type 3 and the more common Type 4 pathways. MRT also identifies reactions to food chemicals. This translates into faster and more complete relief for those who test with MRT. In fact, independent studies confirm MRT is the most accurate and most comprehensive blood test available for food and food-chemical reactions.
For people who desire additional support beyond the testing alone, I can provide dietary counseling. LEAP dietary care provides you the opportunity to get the maximum benefit from your testing. If you want the best, you can have it with LEAP!
