Individualized Nutrition Plan

Individualized nutrition is not to be confused with trendy diets like those based on your blood type or even genomic testing. Melissa gets to know your story.  She uses tools to assess your TOTAL nutrition – what you eat, what you don’t eat, your lifestyle, do you cook, what tools do you have in your kitchen, what is your stress level, are you getting adequate sleep, joyful movement,  and more….  In other words, a holistic approach to creating a nutrition plan for YOU.

Digestive Tune-Up

You are NOT what you eat….you are what you DIGEST and ABSORB.  Melissa uses this proven 4 week program as a way to reset and refresh your digestion.  You will learn what you can add to your life to improve your energy and get you on the way to your better health goals.

Food & Chemical Sensitivity

Are you eating a healthy diet, but still don’t feel well? Are you suffering from IBS, Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD), or other digestive issues? Migraines/headaches, arthritis, fibromyalgia, eczema, sinus congestion or extreme fatigue?  These are just some of the conditions that can be aggravated by inflammation caused by food or chemical sensitivities.  They can wreak havoc on your daily activities, your concentration at work and even your athletic performance.

Our MRT+LEAP Food Sensitivity Program

MRT in combination with the LEAP program is a strategic and highly effective method of dealing with the dietary components of many chronic conditions and symptoms caused by delayed food sensitivities that are often failed by conventional treatments.  Diet is typically the area that gets the least amount of attention but in most cases is the key to finding relief.
Mediator Release Test (MRT) is a blood test that measures your body’s immune reaction to 170 different foods and food chemicals. Unlike other tests that measure presence of antibodies which may or may not be causing problems for you, MRT measures if a reaction is actually happening in your body when exposed to specific foods. It is the most accurate and most comprehensive test available for determining food sensitivities (sensitivity of 94.5% and specificity of 91.7%).
Lifestyle Eating and Performance (LEAP) is the eating plan that follows the test so you can use foods to calm inflammation, heal your body from the inside out and feel better. It starts with eating only your most non-reactive foods for 2 weeks, then gradually reintroducing other foods back in to determine what your tolerance level is for higher reactive and non-tested foods. It’s a complex process that requires guidance by someone who knows the ins and outs of food sensitivities and can help you with meal planning, troubleshooting and more. As Certified LEAP Therapists, we can help you FINALLY get relief from the pain and discomfort of your chronic health problem
