Is Your Food Making You Sick? Feeling tired, bloated, achy or run down? How about all of the above?
September 01, 2015
You may have food sensitivities and not know it. Frequent headaches, chronic digestive problems and fatigue, and a number of other common health complaints can often be caused by reactions to the foods and chemicals in our diet. For those who want to feel better, relief can now be found through the LEAP program, a simple and very effective treatment plan for food sensitivity related illness.
Symptoms provoked by food sensitivities occur when our immune system begins perceiving foods in the same way it perceives things that are truly harmful--bateria, viruses, parasites, etc.. This mistaken identity leads to the release of toxic chemicals called "mediators" (such as histamine, cytokines, and prostaglandins) from our immune cells. It's the inflammatory and pain-inducing effect of the mediators that give rise to symptoms making us feel sick.
Food sensitivity symptoms are often chronic. This is because the mediators are released every time you eat reactive foods. And it doesn't matter what drugs we take to try and get better--if we have food sensitivities and don't figure out which foods we should be eating, getting better and staying better becomes a long-term losing struggle.
LEAP or Lifestyle Eating and Performance is a program that will help you overcome any food sensitivity problems you might have. LEAP allows you to quickly identify what foods, additives, and chemicals are likely provoking your symptoms, and, more importantly, which foods have the highest probability of being safe. LEAP uses a patented, proven blood test named MRT (Mediator Release Test) to isolate a safe foods diet for you. MRT eliminates the guesswork to give you definitive answers. Once the test is performed, an eating plan is developed and tailored to the needs of each individual client. You will be assisted by Angela Moore, MS, RD a certified LEAP therapist to implement your new eating plan.

The LEAP program has helped thousands of IBS, Migraine, Fibromyalgia and other food sensitive clients quickly overcome their food sensitvities and find lasting relief, even to the point of feeling completely healthy again after years of suffering. All without the ongoing cost and potential side effects of prescription medicine that never even address the underlying root of the illness. In fact, most patients see marked improvements within 1-2 weeks on the program.
