Food Sensitivities & LEAP Therapy

Food Sensitivities & LEAP Therapy

Benefits

Do you suffer from frequent headaches, migraines, digestive problems, fatigue or eczema? Do your symptoms tend to be frequent and chronic? Do you suspect that certain foods may be making you sick? Are you interested in finding a more natural approach to treating your symptoms?

Sensitivity to foods tends to be chronic and frequent, impacting every aspect of your day-to-day life. While current medications work only to mask your symptoms, changing your diet can rid them completely and provide long-term relief. In order to feel better (and stay better) we have to first identify which foods your body is reacting to—this is where LEAP testing and therapy come in.

What is LEAP Testing & Therapy?
What is LEAP Testing & Therapy?

LEAP stands for Lifestyle, Eating and Performance Testing. LEAP Therapy uses a blood test (MRT: Mediator Release Testing) to identify which common foods and chemicals may be provoking your symptoms. MRT is the most accurate and comprehensive test available for determining food sensitivities—and has helped thousands of people identify their triggers and find relief from 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, we’ll work closely together to develop and implement an eating plan based around your specific MRT test results. The majority of people going through LEAP Therapy will feel significant relief from their symptoms within the first 10 days on their personalized eating plan.

LEAP Therapy can be done in person, over the phone or via video conferencing.

TESTIMONIALS
  • "I learned a ton and she walked me through the entire process... I lost weight but more importantly I learned how to eat (properly) for the rest of my life."

    M.K., Chicago
  • "Renee is fantastic! The LEAP diet gave me my life back after having awful headaches. She's patient, kind and super smart when it comes to food and illness. I'm off headache meds completely after working with Renee!"

    Alissa G., Chicago
  • "Renee was committed to designing a practical meal plan, highlighting both positive and negative health behaviors, and helping me formulate manageable goals for myself. But most importantly, she identified the things which motivated and discouraged me better than I could have even for myself... It changed the way I viewed my relationship with myself, with others, and ultimately, with food."

    Libby S., Chicago
  • "I had always just thought I had a messed up stomach but doing the testing and being counseled by Renee truly changed my life! I would highly recommend her to anyone with food issues and especially encourage people to try the LEAP MRT testing if you frequently have stomach issues."

    Molly M., Chicago
  • "Renee is both incredibly knowledgeable about nutritional science and an empathetic listener who gives great, practical advice. She helped me to understand the root of my relationship with food, and worked with me to set goals that resulted in the creation of positive, lasting habits."

    T.K., Chicago
  • "I suffered from stomach problems since I was a kid. After an especially awful stomach experience, I decided to look into dietitians to see if I could identify what foods were making me sick. I went to Renee in March 2013, I am so glad I found her. I had no idea that I could feel this...normal. Working with Renee has drastically improved the quality of my life. I'm so grateful to her!"

    Jill Y., Chicago
  • "Over the last month I've been working with Renee, I've seen more results than I had in three months on my own... I can honestly say that she's helped me figure out a way eat healthfully for the rest of my life. You rock, Renee!"

    Britt C., Chicago
