Guess what?!

It can take 3 days for a food to cause your symptoms.

Have you ever said to yourself: "It has to be something I ate."

Maybe, but how do you know?

If you've had "all the tests" done and they aren't giving you answers or you're over it, trying to eliminate this or try that...

If you are dealing with anxiety, migraines, joint pain, fatigue, and so much more...

It's likely a food sensitivity. The first thing a food sensitivity sufferer needs to do is identify their inflammatory foods and food-chemicals.

In the past, this has been easier said than done. But that's the past.

Food sensitivity reactions may be delayed by hours or even days after eating/drinking. Even if you suspect food sensitivities, would you consider that the headache you have right now was caused by something you ate yesterday?

Food sensitivities can also be 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 that pain, diarrhea, migraine, bloating, etc.

But, if you ate only 1 of those foods maybe 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! Your migraine can be someone else's IBS.

There are usually many reactive foods and food-chemicals, not just one or two. In my case, it was 22.

My MRT results

The inflammatory process in the body makes it impossible for traditional allergy tests to identify sensitive foods. Remember – these are sensitivities not allergies. It is an entirely different mechanism/reaction in the body. It's like getting your white blood cell count checked when you really want to know about your red blood cells. Different tests for different things.

Unfortunately, most doctors know about food allergy but are unaware of food sensitivities. Those that practice in the integrative and functional medicine space may be aware. But, this is something that is outside of the traditional "sick care" model of typical medicine these days where you get a prescription and get sent on your way.

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. 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. I do not focus on what you can't have. This plan is about focusing on what you CAN have to build a balanced eating plan using foods that work with your body to calm inflammation and manage your symptoms.

In fact, independent studies confirm MRT® is the most accurate and most comprehensive blood test available for food and food-chemical reactions. The information MRT® provides directly translates into the most effective therapy – the LEAP Anti-Inflammatory Eating Plan.

This is what I do in my Signature Program and Workshop Series. LEAP is the most effective therapy because it routinely produces the most complete results in the shortest time possible.

The results and prgress really depend on YOU! But, it's exciting to say that most people experience 50-80% relief in the first 2-3 weeks!

LEAP has helped thousands of patients across the country turn years of suffering into a bright, happy, healthy future, free of the symptoms that once seemed an inescapable part of life. Even world class athletes have used LEAP to help them be their absolute best. Find out today if your health problems stem from food sensitivities. Apply now and let's talk!
