Do you suspect issues with food or chemical sensitivities? Many people have the symptoms, but are not quite sure of the exact cause from their diet. Symptom type, frequency, and severity can vary from person to person and are often delayed from 4 up to 72-hours post ingestion of the problematic food! Sensitivities are difficult to identify because, unlike allergies, they are dose dependent. This means that eating a few slivered almonds on your salad may not provoke issues, but eating half of a jar of almond butter sure will!

Due to all of this confusion regarding food sensitivities, Erin offers a solution: the Mediator Release Test (MRT). MRT is a simple blood test that measures your immune-based sensitivity response to 120 foods and 30 chemicals (naturally occurring and additives). Here’s a full list of the test’s antigens: MRT 150 Profile

Erin is a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT), which means she is trained on how to interpret the test’s findings and teach you how to follow an elimination diet protocol called the LEAP diet. Results look like this:

The higher the bar, the more reactive the food or chemical is when exposed to your immune system. Reactive foods and chemicals are eliminated for a period of time until the body eventually regains oral tolerance. Most problematic foods are avoided for at least 3 to 6 months. 

Using the MRT test and the LEAP diet, Erin has helped hundreds of patients to feel better…fast! Significant symptom improvement is often seen within the first 2-weeks on the plan. Erin has helped those suffering from IBS, IBD, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic migraine, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, eczema, Hashimoto’s, etc.

This is powerful stuff…just by changing the foods you eat, you can change your life!  This effective intervention is typically side-effect free and improves the overall quality of your diet, unlike some of the other higher-risk and expensive interventions one may consider including supplements, medications, and surgeries.

Erin will walk you through the entire process by providing an in-depth review of your results, creating a personalized elimination strategy with step by step instructions, designing a list of specific recipes and product suggestions based on your plan, and offering you the education, resources and support you need for success!
