Food Sensitivities and Inflammation

How do you know if you
have food sensitivities?

The Mediator Release Test (MRT) is a blood test patented by Signet Diagnostic Corporation in 2001 (now Oxford Biomedical Technologies). It was designed to not only measure which foods may be causing an inflammatory response, but also to what degree.

Once MRT results are obtained, the LEAP Diet is put into place. Melissa is a Certified LEAP Therapist and uses your results to develop an individualized diet plan to help your body achieve an “Immuno calm” state in which the immune system is calmed and inflammation is reduced. This is the point at which your negative symptoms will improve or may disappear altogether!

The LEAP Diet is the most effective tool Melissa has found to treat complicated inflammatory conditions. In the past, strict Elimination Diets were mostly used (and still commonly used today) to try to pinpoint problematic foods. An Elimination Diet commonly used in the past is the Lamb, Rice, and Pear Diet. The problem is, you may very well be reactive to lamb, rice, or pear! LEAP/MRT gives you the individualized information you need to eliminate inflammatory foods in your diet with results that are specific to YOU!

What people are saying
about the LEAP diet:

“While I did experience an intense detox the first few days, I knew this was a sign that my body was full of inflammation and that this new eating plan could change my life. Amazingly, before the detox period was over, my chronic pain levels started to decrease. In fact, after a few days, I went from a consistent 6-7 pain level to a 0-1 pain level in my back. The other doctors I worked with were amazed at my results and they all ended up discharging me since the food adjustments were helping me more than physical therapy, drugs, etc.. “
