Functional Nutrition and Testing

We have seen many clients achieve improvement in symptoms after being told that they may never see relief. Integrative and Functional Nutrition may be for you if you are tired of seeing multiple specialists, trying several different prescriptions, or even having numerous procedures and seeing no results. Have you been told that there is nothing wrong despite having symptoms that interfere with your daily life? We understand the frustration of not feeling better or even feeling worse with each attempt. We are here to help you!

Benefits of Functional Nutrition Therapy

We will act as your health detectives, sorting through your health history, prior labs and tests, family history (if known) current and prior symptoms, lifestyle and activity factors, and many others. We will work as a collaborative team to create a plan and look for the root cause of your symptoms. Functional Nutrition will always be individualized to your specific needs. Two people may present with a similar problem; however, each client will have a different genetic makeup, different resting metabolisms, different labs, food intolerances, among other things. There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to getting healthy. Our functional nutrition program takes that into account to create a plan fit for you.

MRT Food Sensitivity Test

Discover how the MRT Food Sensitivity Test combined with the LEAP Dietary Protocol can quickly and significantly improve your symptoms and overall quality of life! Many common health problems are often directly related to specific immune reactions to the foods we eat. The foods that cause an immune reaction are very unique to each person. Identifying triggering foods without a test can be tricky because food sensitivity reactions may be delayed by hours, or even days after ingestion. Oftentimes, food sensitivities can also be dose-related, making proper identification difficult, if not impossible.

Millions of Americans suffer from food sensitivities and related chronic health conditions every day, without relief. If foods and food additives in the diet are causing the illness, whatever medications are taken will ultimately fail because they only mask the symptoms and don’t treat the underlying cause of the symptoms. If food sensitivities are causing your illness and you don’t properly address them, you could easily end up suffering for many years, possibly spending thousands of dollars for treatments that will never work.

Over the years, the MRT Food Sensitivity Test combined with the LEAP diet protocol has helped to provide answers and true healing to those suffering from the following conditions:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Migraines & Other Headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis, Joint Pain & Muscle Pain
  • ADD & ADHD
  • Urticaria
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Obesity or Weight Imbalances
  • Acid Reflux and HeartBurn
  • Anxiety, insomnia, and depression

Nutrigenomic Test

This is a Science-based approach to build a customized diet plan based on your genes and lifestyle. Everyone is different in what foods they tolerate which is why testing is crucial in building a treatment plan. We offer three panels of the 45-gene Nutrigenomix test: sports/fitness, health and wellness, and fertility.

    Metabolism Test

    Do you really know how much your body needs per day? We have tested countless clients over the years. Would you believe that more often than not the reason people are not losing weight is that they are undereating! Do you want to know what your body needs? This test is great for a variety of clients. Are you trying to finetune your diet? Are you an athlete trying to up your game? This test determines your resting metabolic rate by measuring your oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production.

    Micronutrient Testing

    Micronutrient testing is the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available. This test measures how well the body uses 33 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites. By measuring beyond a simple range and providing an index of how well these micronutrients are functioning within your body, we can correct deficiencies that are impairing your physical, mental, and emotional health.
