Is your Food Making you sick?

Medical Research has shown that sensitivities to foods and food chemicals can be involved in a wide array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems. If foods and additives in your diet are causing your illness, whatever medications you take will ultimately fail because they only mask the symptoms. They don't treat 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 food sensitivities are causing your illness and you don't properly address them, you could easily end up suffering for many years, spending thousands of dollars for treatments that will never work the way you want. Millions of Americans suffer from food sensitivities. Conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, migraine and other headaches, weight imbalances, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, skin eruptions, brain fog and many other uncomfortable lingering health problems are often directly related to specific immune reactions to the foods  e eat. Even so-called healthy foods such as salmon, chicken, apples, or garlic can provoke symptoms in sensitive individuals. Fortunately there's a program called LEAP that can help you quickly overcome even the most troublesome food sensitivity related problems. LEAP includes a patented blood test called MRT (Mediator Release Test) that accounts for both type 3 and the more common type 4 pathways. MRT also identifies reactions to food chemicals. This translates into faster and more complete relief for those who test with MRT. In fact, MRT is the most accurate and most comprehensive blood test available for food and food-chemical reactions.
