What's Going on Under the Hood?  

Reach your optimal health and wellness potential with the below comprehensive nutritional and health tests combined with professional nutritional guidance.

 


MRT Testing and LEAP Therapy

Are you eating a healthy diet, but still don’t feel well? Are you suffering from IBS, Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD), or other digestive issues? Migraines/headaches, arthritis, fibromyalgia, eczema, sinus congestion or extreme fatigue? These are just some of the conditions that can be aggravated by inflammation caused by food sensitivities. They can wreak havoc on your daily activities, your concentration at work and even your athletic performance.

What are food sensitivities?

There are 3 categories of diet-induced inflammatory reactions: Food allergies, food-Induced autoimmune disease, and food sensitivities. Of the 3, food sensitivities are the most prevalent.

Food sensitivities are non-allergic (non-IgE), non-celiac inflammatory responses. When a reactive food is ingested, white blood cells release mediators such as cytokines, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins that cause inflammation and pain. Even if you are eating the healthiest foods that are typically known for being anti-inflammatory, those foods may be inflammatory for YOUR body. It can be difficult to figure out on your own which foods you are reactive to because the manifestation of a food sensitivity may not show up for hours or days and may be dose dependent.

How does MRT testing work?

The purpose of the patented Mediator Release Test (MRT) is to identify and quantify which foods and chemicals cause an inflammatory response in your body. It is an accurate test with 94.5% sensitivity and 91.7% specificity. 120 foods and 30 chemicals are tested.

What is LEAP therapy?

LEAP stands for Lifestyle Eating and Performance. After receiving your MRT results, a personalized diet therapy protocol will be designed for you. You will start with your least reactive foods and re-introduce other foods as you progress through the phases. The timeline is different for everyone, but many people start feeling improvement of symptoms within the first 10 days.

Are you taking too many nutrients? Not enough? Nutritional status is a vital foundation of health and performance.  SpectraCell’s micronutrient testing is an innovative assessment of nutrient status.  Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body's deficiencies by evaluate how an individuals white blood cells respond to varied environments of over 35 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.  As a result, individual differences in metabolism, age, genetics, health, prescription drug usage, absorption rate or other factors are shown in the results. Patients get a complete professional graph of their nutrient status for all 35 tests along with a professional repletion program to correct deficiencies. 

Comprehensive testing of:

Vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, Folic Acid, Pantothenate, Biotin, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin A, Vitamin K

Minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Selenium, Chromium

Antioxidants: CoQ10, Glutathione, Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid

Fatty Acids: Oleic Acid

Amino Acids: Serine, Glutamine, Asparagine

Carbohydrate Metabolism: Glucose-Insulin Interaction, Fructose Sensitivity

Includes report of all deficiencies as well as Dietitian interpretation with dietary and supplement recommendations if required.  Report and resources provided via online patient web page.

Telomere Test - Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome.  As a cell ages, it's telomeres become shorter.  New research has correlated shorter Telomere length with premature aging and increased metabolic issues, obesity and several degenerative diseases including cancer, dementia and cardiovascular disease.

SpectraCell’s Telomere Test can determine the length of a person’s telomeres in relation to the person’s age. This is then compared to telomere lengths from a population sample to determine how a person scores. 

Laboratory studies have shown that telomeres are highly susceptible to oxidative stress, which will shorten telomere length and enhance cellular aging.  Minimising associated risk factors that are linked to shortened telomere activity is recommended and include reducing oxidative stress, correcting nutrient deficiencies, increasing activity, avoiding excess weight gain and correcting insulin resistance.

If your telomere test indicates an advanced age, your Dietitian can do further micronutrient testing to identify deficiencies as well as counsel you on the dietary and lifestyle recommendations to improve your oxidative defense to help reduce telomere shortening.

Blood samples are taken at our lab and sent for analysis. When results are received, a full review of all information is provided with a comprehensive nutritional and lifestyle plan to address areas of concern and optimize nutritional and anti-oxidant status. Report and resources provided via a secure online patient web page.
