Have you ever wondered if certain foods or chemicals are contributing to your symptoms?  This is your chance to find out once and for all! 

Everyone’s physiology is unique which means we all react to foods differently.  Even conventionally healthy foods like chicken and broccoli can make you feel sick if you have food sensitivities.

The Mediator Release Test (MRT) is a patented blood test from Oxford Biomedical Technologies that measures how your body’s immune cells respond to 170 different foods and chemicals.  Food sensitivities are complex non-IgE, non-celiac inflammatory reactions.  Various mechanisms trigger reactions in white blood cells causing the cells to release proinflammatory mediators such as cytokines, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins.  Mediator release ultimately results in inflammation manifesting in a variety of conditions and symptoms.  

Long story short:  The test measures reactions that can’t be seen on a traditional IgE allergy test. We will use these results to create your custom anti-inflammatory elimination diet!

Step 1: Schedule a Consultation

This 45-minute telehealth visit involves a detailed review of your nutrition status, medical history, symptoms, medications, and eating patterns. This session focuses on fact-finding to determine the best action plan to meet your needs.

Step 2: Get Tested

If we determine that you are a good fit for the food sensitivity program, an MRT blood test kit will be shipped to you. I will help you locate a lab near you to get your bloodwork done. Please note: Most labs charge a blood draw fee of $25-50. This is not included in the cost of your package.

Step 3: Work with Me to Interpret the Results and Implement Your Custom Nutrition Plan

You will receive a printed copy of your test results in approximately 2 weeks. As you can see from the sample test below, the results cover a wide variety of foods and chemicals. Keep in mind that the test is a great tool but it doesn't take into account your medical history and food preferences. That's where I come in! I will help you interpret the results to build a custom plan based on your unique needs.

The first phase of the elimination diet lasts for approximately 2 weeks. During this time, you will eat only your least reactive foods from each category -- no other ingredients! This is the most restrictive and challenging phase, which is why it's so important to make sure you are a good fit for the program. This program is not a good fit for someone who despises cooking and/or eats out for every meal.

Most people see significant improvement of their symptoms by the end of Phase 1. During Phase 2, I will work with you to reintroduce additional foods from your list, one at a time, while paying close attention to any symptoms that arise.

In Phase 3 , you will reintroduce foods that were not included on the test. The goal is to allow your immune system to calm down and eventually get you back to eating a varied diet without any symptoms.
