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. The following conditions are often associated with food sensitivities: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Chronic Diarrhea, Cramping, Heartburn, Headaches, Migraine, Fibromyalgia, Muscle Pain, Joint Pain, 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 your problems.
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 your dietitian will assist you in implementing your personalized “immunocalm” diet.
Nutrition counseling can be done in person or over the phone.
Steps involved in process:
- Blood draw for MRT to be done at a nearby facility then shipped via FedEx overnight to Oxford Lab.
- MRT results and comprehensive diet guidelines are delivered via FedEx.
- Follow-up nutrition counseling sessions in office or by phone (review of results and guidelines, meal and menu planning, grocery shopping, eating out) are strongly encouraged for an additional fee.
