Food Sensitivity Testing

​​Nutritious Weighs specializes in Food Sensitivity Testing, which can identify the cause or contributing triggers to migraines, fibromyalgia, IBS, fatigue, arthritis and many more inflammatory conditions.

What is mrt & LEAP

LEAP stands for Lifestyle and Performance.  It is an effective protocol that combines the Mediator Release Test (MRT) with the skills of a Certified LEAP Therapist to produce a patient- specific anti-inflammatory diet designed to lower inflammation, and by doing so reduce or eliminate your symptoms. 

The patented MRT is a blood test that measures your immune reaction to 120 foods and 30 chemicals and food dyes. The results are used to identify a safe list of foods to eat that will no longer trigger inflammation, and your symptoms can improve.  Not sure if LEAP is for you?  Listen here for more information on LEAP and Kelly Jo's Pecha Kucha Presentation.

Symptoms frequently caused by food sensitivities: 

  • Diarrhea/Constipation
  • Thin Stools
  • Abdominal or intestinal pain
  • Bloating, Distention, Gas
  • Nausea and/or Vomiting
  • Heartburn
  • Headaches

  • Irritability, Depression, Anxiety, Mood Swings
  • Post nasal drip, Chronic Drainage
  • Skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis
  • Brain Fog 


​​No one diet fits all!  Why you need a personalized approach:

60-80% of our immune system is in the gut.  Our immune system is as unique as a fingerprint, and what it determines as "friend or foe" is different than anyone else's.  We can have an immune reaction to just about anything except salt, baking soda or carbonated water.  We can react to seemingly healthy foods such as salmon, apples, carrots, cinnamon, vanilla, turkey, or rice.  We also can react to chemicals - naturally occurring chemicals like solanine (found in potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, etc), food dyes (ie - FD& C Red #4), or other items like MSG, lecithin, and potassium nitrate.  

The MRT is similar to a GPS for your car.  It gets you to your destination a whole lot faster than if you were trying to guess at which roads to take.  Nutritious Weighs works with clients from all over the United States via telephone consults and/or skype.
