UNCOVER THE ROOT CAUSE OF YOUR SYMPTOMS

Functional testing provides key information to how the systems of your body are functioning, what may be out of balance, and could be that missing link you need to start feeling better, sooner.

Conventional lab tests are really great at uncovering disease, once it has already occurred. Functional testing helps to uncover body imbalances that may be related to the symptoms you are experiencing. It is great for chronic conditions and symptoms that you are having difficulty finding answers or solutions to. These tests are a piece of the puzzle of your health story and can help guide your healing journey.

Disclaimer: Functional labs are not diagnostic and any nutritional support recommendations tailored to functional labs are designed to address biochemical imbalances and are not intended to prevent, diagnose, treat or cure any disease or condition.

MRT/LEAP

MRT Food Sensitivity Test

MRT stands for Mediator Release Testing. It is the blood test that helps pinpoint which foods + chemicals are causing immune cells to react and release mediators such as histamines, prostaglandins, or cytokines into the blood that can result in symptoms experienced with digestive issues like IBS.

LEAP stands for Lifestyle Eating and Performance. It is the healing food protocol to tame inflammation resulting from the food sensitivities found from the MRT test. The idea is to include

MRT VS OTHER FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING

Unlike other food sensitivity tests that measure an IgG response to foods, MRT tests inflammatory markers that travel through the bloodstream directly leading to symptoms.

Other food sensitivity tests also focus on avoidance. With MRT testing, you have a list of foods that have low- reactivity for you to include while avoiding your high- and moderate-reactivity foods for a period of time with the goal of improving symptoms and healing the gut. Most cases of IBS can see symptom improvement of 50-80% in as little as 10 days.

WHO CAN BENEFIT: anyone experiencing digestive issues like IBS, cramping, bloating, abdominal pain, indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation

TEST TYPE: blood draw

MEASURES: delayed hypersensitivity reactions to 140 foods and 30 chemicals.

WHEN TO TEST: any day of the month
