ONE OF THE BEST ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET

LEAP- MRT DIET PROTOCOL

An effective protocol that combines the Mediator Release Test (MRT) with the expertise of a Certified LEAP Therapist to develop a client specific anti-inflammatory diet designed to lower inflammation can reduce or eliminate your symptoms.

The patented Mediator Release Test (MRT) is a blood test that measures your immune reaction to 120 foods and 30 chemicals. We use those results to identify a safe list of foods to eat that will not trigger inflammation, so your symptoms can improve.

Who is a  CLT- Therapist?

CLT stands for Certified LEAP Therapist. LEAP stands for Lifestyle Eating And Performance.

A CLT Therapist receives advanced clinical training in managing adverse food reactions with an emphasis on food sensitivities. CLTs apply that knowledge by using the LEAP protocol – an evidence-based and highly effective eating plan for food sensitivity related health problems. 

LEAP utilizes the patented Mediator Release blood Test (MRT) to help uncover food and chemical sensitivities, not IgE allergies. Going far beyond avoidance or elimination diets, the LEAP Protocol is more practical and suited to the clinical realities of food sensitivities. 

Therefore, the CLT is able to routinely achieve rapid and dramatic clinical improvements, often when conventional therapies have failed.

MEDIATOR RELEASE TEST - (MRT)

MRT stands for Mediator Release Test, is a blood test that detects non-IgE mediated food reactions. The test quantifies how strongly your immune system reacts to the food and food chemicals. MRT indirectly measures the mediators such as histamine, cytokines, and prostaglandins. The significant reactions are broken into either Reactive (Red), or Moderately Reactive (Yellow) and insignificant reactions (Green). 

MRT have the highest level of accuracy of any food sensitivity blood test (94.5% sensitivity, 91,8% specificity)

Food Sensitivities & Inflammation

How-food-sensitivities-cause-inflammatio

Food Allergy, Food Sensitivity, Food Intolerance

Food Allergy is an IgE mediated immune response that usually occurs soon after eating certain food. Even a tiny amount of reactive food can trigger an allergic reaction. The reactions can be very unpredictable, from mild to severe. Reaction s can range from hives and mild abdominal discomfort, to severe reactions that can include life threatening anaphylactic reaction. There is no cure for food allergies, and allergen foods must be completely avoided. 

 

Food Sensitivity is a non-IgE mediated, delayed immune response that can take up to 72 hours after ingesting the reactive food. This delay can make it difficult to diagnose the specific food causing the symptoms. Food sensitivities can cause many different symptoms depending upon the organ it involves. 

Food Intolerance is due to the deficiency of an enzyme needed to digest a particular food. The most common example is Lactose Intolerance, due to deficiency of an enzyme Lactase. The other intolerances include wheat & gluten intolerances.
