"I am 46, and I live the LEAP lifestyle! When I first started the process to have the MRT done, I was hopeful that I would be able to finally find some answers to various health issues that I had been experiencing off and on since my 20’s. I also had been struggling to lose weight even with diet and exercise. I was very tired all the time, and had digestive issues that I could not get straightened out, as well as being severely depressed. While changing your lifestyle is never convenient nor is it usually fun to begin with, I made my way through the first few weeks eating only those foods that I did not have any reactions from. At times I thought I was possibly going to starve to death, but then I would remember that I could eat anything that I wanted on the non-reactive food list.
Kelly was very helpful with putting together an eating plan and helping me find information on the foods and chemicals that I was having a reaction with. One month after starting the LEAP lifestyle, I realized that I had a lot of energy and my digestive
issues calmed down. I also noticed that my depression had really improved and I was shedding some of those pounds!
It is now 8 months since I started LEAP and I feel great! My depression has lifted, my digestive issues are much better and I currently have lost 28 pounds and four and a half inches around my belly. LEAP has been absolutely amazing for me!"

"I have been having problems with my thyroid function and overwhelming fatigue when I happened to hear a presentation by Kelly and thought that what she said about nutrition and inflammation made a lot of sense. After a consultation with Kelly and a blood test, I received my test results and within just a few days of modifying my diet I started to feel much better. Kelly was great to work with and very encouraging with food substitutions and menu ideas. My energy level has gotten better and my thyroid level test has improved in just 4 months. As a total bonus, my stomach issues and seasonal allergies have also improved greatly."

"I have been in the process of changing my life with LEAP! For the longest time, I have suffered with heartburn, stomach issues, moodiness and headaches. No More. By using the MRT test results and LEAP method of dietary changes, I have almost completely eliminated the need for antacid and advil. The biggest bonus has been my weight loss. It hasn't been fast, but a nice, healthy gradual loss that will be sustainable. With the counseling by Kelly Jo, the difficulty in finding food alternatives and moral support, got me through my hardest days."

"I took a diabetes class from MedSave Family Pharmacy. I was concerned about my my recent A1C number and wanted to better controlmy diabetes without medication. All of the presenters were excellent but I especially appreciated the information that Kelly Jo offered about nutiriton. I learned about portion control and counting carbs. I learned that I could improve my healthy by taking baby steps and adjusting menu choices. I keep a food journal and exercise diary that helps me focus on my wise choices to stay health. "
