How Do I Get Relief?

Figuring out what YOUR food sensitivities  are is the most important step in getting you back on the road to feeling good again. The Mediator Release Test -MRT® - is a blood test that tests over 150 different foods and food chemicals.  Once we know what your specific sensitivities are, this information is used to set up the ultimate elimination diet that is best for YOU!

Who Should Take the MRT® Test?

People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Heartburn/Reflux, Migraines, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Ulcerative/Microscopic Colitis, Hives/Uticaria, Chronic Diarrhea, Gas/Bloating, Atopic Dermatitis, Obesity

People who want more a individualized elimination diet, based on their blood test.  People who do not believe a one-size-fits-all elimination diet is right for them.

How Does the MRT®Test Work?Title

Site Title

The Patented Mediator Release Test is a blood test that tests quantifies the inflammatory response to over 150 different foods and food chemicals. MRT® testing is offered only through Registered Dietitian Nutritionists who have completed extensive training and passed a certificate course.  Once your test results are in, you will be able to see  how reactive your blood sample was to the 150 foods and food chemicals that were tested. But it is not enough just to know your reactive foods.  You need to understand how to implement the elimination diet.  You will be guided through the Lifestyle, Eating and Performance Protocol (LEAP) and get step by step guidance on implementing a personalized elimination diet based specifically on your test results and my experience with supporting people through the elimination process.

How Does Your Program Work?

I offer two packages for you to choose from.  You can set up a complimentary 15 minute phone call  at 720-883-2245 to determine which package works best for you.

Prices include the cost of setting up the blood test, all the necessary paper work, the cost of the actual blood test and nutrition counseling based on the results of your test.  I will walk you through this process and be with you every step of the way.

The MRT®test kit and paperwork will be sent to you along with instructions on how to get the blood draw done. You can also come to my office to pick up the kit and the paperwork if that works better for you.

It takes 10 days - 2 weeks to get the results back and at that time a 60-90 minute appointment is set to begin the LEAP protocol. We will discuss the results, determine your unique plan and help get you set up to prepare and shop.

We discuss specific plans for continuing to add a variety of foods in beyond the LEAP protocol.  We will also spend time discussing specific actions you can take to continue to feel better and get more control of your condition and your life in addition to the diet changes.
