So many clients HEALED with the MRT/LEAP protocol 💪🏼 It is such an honor to carry the CLT credential that allows me to authorize this remarkable food sensitivity test.
Conditions that may benefit from MRT testing include but are not limited to autoimmune conditions (Lupus, M.S., etc.), digestive issues (particular IBS), psychological issues (anxiety, depression, etc.), neurological disorders (fibromyalgia, migraines, etc.), and several other inflammatory conditions.
MRT testing testing has:
~90% split sample reproducibility
We react one cubic milliliter of your blood with each food antigen to determined how many inflammatory cytokines are squeezed from inside your blood cell to outside into the extra cellular fluid.
Guns vs. Bullets Analogy 🔫▪️▪️▪️
I like to explain MRT as testing the “bullets” instead of the “gun.”
🔫 Triggering mechanism ➡️ Cellular Activation ➡️ Mediator Release ▪️▪️▪️
Gun: The triggering mechanisms are what I refer to as “guns.” These are immunoglobulins like IgG, IgA, and IgM immune complexes. Testing these markers ARE NOT accurate or reliable.
Bullets: The mediators that are ‘squeezed’ from the cell are what I like to refer to as the “bullets.” These are the “end products” of a sensitivity immune response and include, but are not limited to, cytokines (interleukins, chemokines, TNFs, interferons,etc.), leukotrienes, histamine, prostaglandins, and several others!
By testing the actual end products instead of the immune branch utilized you get significantly more accurate, specific, and reliable results.
The trouble with IgG food sensitivity testing (*cough*cough* the one they advertise on TV 📺) is that it has very low accuracy and what is known as low split sample reproducability. That means if you take an IgG test this week and next week you could have completely different results
🙃 HOW IS THAT HELPFUL?!
Let me take the guess work out for you!
I have a pre-screening/selection questionnaire that may be able to determine if MRT testing is right for you. Testing is determined by the discretion of Sarah Klaverweiden M.S. C.N.S. L.D.N. and may not be deemed appropriate for everybody. Oxford Biomedical Technologies no longer accepts medical insurance so all MRT testing is exclusively cash based.
