Mediator Release Testing MRT – LEAP 150
What is Food Sensitivity Testing?
Do you have food sensitivities? Some people have already
identified foods that make them feel sick or cause symptoms. Most people
suspect that certain foods may be a problem, but are unaware what those foods (or
food additives) are. Food sensitivities tend to be chronic and frequent.
Medications will fail if this is the case because they only mask the symptoms. Call our office 517-223-9900 for pricing and to order your MRT testing kit.
The following conditions are often associated with food
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) , Chronic
Cramping, Heartburn, Headaches,
Fibromyalgia, Muscle Pain, Joint
Fatigue and Autism/ADD and other
conditions such as Chronic Sinus Congestion.
If you suffer from any of these conditions our new Food
Sensitivity Testing program may finally give you the answers and a solution to
How do we do it? Food sensitivity testing is done using the patented Mediator
Release Test (MRT) which is an accurate "end-point" test. It
indirectly measures mediator release through precise measurement of changes to
liquid/solids ratio of a blood sample after whole blood has been incubated with
an individual food, additive, or chemical. It is the most accurate and the most
comprehensive test available for determining food sensitivities and has helped
thousands of people identify their triggers and put and end to their suffering.
Your MRT test results are presented to you in a graphic format showing low
reactive, moderately reactive, and highly reactive foods (120) and chemicals/additives
(30). Then Dr. Benjamin will assist you in implementing your personalized

Is your diet making you sick, causing you to gain weight, creating inflammation or hindering your performance?
The LEAP MRT Food Sensitivities kit tests IS for you 150 foods, chemicals, and additives common in our diet that may be doing serious harm. Millions of Americans suffer from chronic illnesses and symptoms that can be controlled by eliminating foods that are causing an immune response that is turning on your immune system, causing inflammation throughout your body, and in your gut taxing your adrenal glands.
Food sensitivities are extremely difficult to identify and many medical tests do not have the capacity to identify issues at the cellular level. In many cases, symptoms do not appear until 48-72 hours after consuming the reactive food. This makes it nearly impossible to know what is causing your symptoms. The following is a list of conditions that have been proven to be triggered by food sensitivities:
- Weight Imbalances
- Anxiety and Depression
- Issues with Concentration and Focus
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Chronic Diarrhea
- Heartburn and GERD
- Arthritis and Chronic Joint Pain
- Muscle Pain
- Poor recovery for athletes
- Chronic Sinusitis
- Insomnia and Poor Sleep
- Autism, ADD, and ADHD
- Acid Reflux
- Migraine and other headaches
- Chronic Fatigue
- Skin Eruptions
- Brain Fog
...As well as many other lingering health problems that can be chronic and debilitating
It is very possible that even very “healthy” foods such as fruits and vegetables can provoke symptoms in sensitive individuals. Millions of Americans suffer from food sensitivities that drastically hinder their quality of life every single day. Traditional medical tests are not able to identify sensitivities and only look for full blown allergic responses. It is nearly impossible to identify food sensitivities without proper testing.
Stop living with unnecessary symptoms that are negatively impacting your life and get tested today!
Is Your Food Making You Sick?
Are you suffering from a stubborn health problem that won’t go away no matter
what you try? Or perhaps you feel like the medications and treatments you’re
taking aren’t actually getting at the root cause of your illness - but you want
something that will? If you feel this way, or know someone that does, here are
some important facts to consider:
Research has shown that foods and food additives can be involved in a wide
array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems.
• If your diet iscausing your illness, whatever medications you take will ultimately
fail because they only mask the symptoms. They don’t affect the underlying cause
of the symptoms. And as is too often the case, many medications have side
effects that can lead to other health problems.
• If diet is
causing your illness and you don’t address it, you could
easily end up
suffering for many years, spending thousands of dollars for treatments that
will never work the way you want them to.
Why we feel sick…frequently
sensitivities are a common cause of many chronic conditions and affect an
estimated 15-20% of the population. Symptoms provoked by food sensitivities
occur when our immune system begins perceiving foods in the same way it perceives
things which are truly harmful – bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc. There
are many reasons why this can happen,
but 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 effects of the mediators that give rise to
symptoms, which ends up making us feel sick.
Introducing LEAP-MRT: The Solution for Food Sensitivity Related Illness
The first thing a food sensitivity suffer needs to do is identify their trigger foods and food-chemicals. In the past, this has been easier said than done for many reasons:
- Food sensitivity reactions may be delayed by hours or even days after ingestion. Even if you suspect food sensitivities, it is not likely you would consider that the headache you have right now was caused by something you ate yesterday.
- Food sensitivities are does-related. This means a small amount or moderate amount of a reactive food may not cause any noticeable symptoms, but a larger amount does.
- Reactive foods vary widely from person to person, even if they have the same symptoms.
- There are usually many reactive foods and food-chemicals.
- In addition, there are 7 different types of food sensitivity reactions, meaning 7 different ways that food or food-chemicals can trigger a reaction.
Fortunately LEAP-MRT can help you quickly overcome even the most troublesome food sensitivity related problems. LEAP-MRT includes a patented blood test called MRT (Mediator Release Test) which accounts for all 7 types of food sensitivity reactions. In comparison, ELISA IgG, the most popular food sensitivity blood test can only detect 1 out of 7 different types of reactions. This means LEAP-MRT will give you faster and more complete relief than other methods. In fact, independent studies confirm MRT is the most accurate and most comprehensive blood test there is for food and food-chemical reactions.
