Food and food-chemical sensitivities are highly complex non-allergic, non-celiac inflammatory reactions. They are one of the most important sources of inflammation and symptoms across a wide range of chronic inflammatory conditions such as:
- Joint Pain/Arthritis
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Crohn’s Disease
- Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Type II Diabetes
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Skin Rashes
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
- Interstitial Cystitis
Not only does MRT (Mediator Release Testing) give insight into inflammation provoking foods and food-chemicals, but more importantly MRT identifies your BEST foods – the foods that form the basis of their LEAP Eating Plan (Lifestyle Eating And Performance).
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.
Common Feature of Diet-Induced Inflammation
The single common feature and most clinically important component of all diet-induced inflammatory reactions is that they ultimately cause mediator release (cytokines, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc.) from various white blood cells (neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils, lymphocytes). This is true whether reactions are immediate or delayed, whether dose dependent or not, whether governed by the innate or adaptive immune systems, whether cell-mediated or humorally-mediated, and whether inflammation remains at a sub-clinical level or becomes symptom-provoking.
