Do you suspect issues with food or chemical sensitivities?

Many people have the symptoms, but are not quite sure of the trigger.

Symptom type, frequency, and severity can vary from person to person and are often delayed from 4 up to 72-hours after eating a problematic food!

Food and chemical sensitivities are difficult to identify because, unlike allergies, they are dose dependent. For example, eating a few slivered almonds on a salad may not provoke issues, but eating half of a jar of almond butter may not go over well!

What’s The Solution?

Due to all of this confusion around food sensitivities, I offer a solution called the Mediator Release Test (MRT).

MRT is a simple blood test that measures your immune-based sensitivity response to 170 foods and chemicals (naturally occurring and additives). Check out the full list of the test items

Results are reported as low, medium, or highly reactive. Using your results, we will put together an individualized elimination diet. I’ll walk you through each step of the process and tell you exactly what to eat and what to avoid.


Don’t worry, you won’t be on this diet forever! Most see results in as little as 2-weeks. The diet slowly progresses thereafter, and after a few months you’ll feel your diet is varied, balanced, and supporting your overall health. 

How Does The Diet Work?

The elimination diet, also referred to as the LEAP protocol, works by calming down the overactive immune system.

Less immune activation means less inflammation. Less inflammation often means less symptom response. That means you’re going to start feeling a whole lot better!

Even seemingly healthy foods like fruits and vegetables may show up as sensitivities. No matter what your results look like, I will help you find to find plenty of healthy foods to eat. I’ll help build you a personalized meal plan with products to buy, recipes to follow, and meals/snacks to eat. 

As a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT), I’ve worked with hundreds of clients  since 2013 using the MRT/LEAP program. People have found relief from a range of conditions including IBS, IBD, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic migraine, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, eczema, Hashimoto’s, etc.


While results vary, every single client attains some level of improvement if they follow the plan as recommended. 

Should I Try It Out? 


This is powerful stuff.  This program gives YOU the power to change your life just by changing the foods you eat.  

This effective intervention is typically side-effect free and improves the overall quality of your diet. It is a great alternative in the beginning of your gut-health journey compared to other higher-risk and expensive interventions like supplements, medications, and surgeries.

I 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!
