What is Functional Nutrition?
It means using more than just diet to address your nutritional needs. Integrative or Functional nutrition uses a science based approach to nutrition, including nutritional testing to determine specific and unique needs for your body. We work together to learn what you should be eating for your body's needs and optimal performance. This is NOT a One Size Fits all approach!
Some of the nutrition approaches we use are listed below:
- MRT Testing and LEAP Therapy
- Nutritional Testing
- Spectracell Micornutrient Deficiency Testing
Specialty Functional Testing that we may use when working with clients:

What is LEAP Therapy?
LEAP stands for Lifestyle Eating and Performance.
The LEAP Program helps individuals determine their food sensitivities and provides guidelines for healthy eating.
A Certified LEAP Therapist is a specially trained dietitian, who has specific knowledge in the area of food sensitivities and the ability to utilize MRT blood testing to make defined fueling plans that help to aid in symptom relief for many conditions, including, but not limited to, migraines, IBS, and fibromyalgia. Diet can be the most important aspect of getting better and staying better for many conditions. Combining dietary counseling and the individualized results of the MRT food sensitivity testing can help to alleviate chronic health conditions. Clinical trials, numerous studies, and client results show that clients, who are appropriately screened for this testing and undergo dietary therapy, benefit tremendously with significant improvement in symptoms and performance.
The LEAP-MRT Program includes an initial consultation, MRT testing, nutritional counseling/dietary therapy, and a maintenance program with support.

What is MRT Testing?
Mediator release is the direct cause of multiple symptoms experienced in immune mediated food chemical sensitivities.
The MRT (Mediator Release Test) accurately isolates which specific foods and/or additives provoke any form of non-IgE mediated hypersensitivity reactions. It is a common end-point, whole blood assay. The non-IgE mediated reactions cause release of pro-inflammatory and pain causing mediators throughout all organ systems and then systemically throughout the body, creating multiple symptoms. Examples of these symptoms include: chronic headaches, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, diarrhea or constipation, sinus problems, bloating, gas, and other gastrointestinal issues.
MRT Testing has also shown food sensitivity issues in persons who have autism, ADD, arthritis, GERD, chronic cough, sinusitis, insomnia, and weight imbalances. In addition, the LEAP-MRT program has been successful in helping world-class athletes perform and recover at an optimal level.
