THE SCIENCE

Do migraines, IBS, or other chronic symptoms control your life?  Take control of your symptoms and get your life back without all the frustrating guess work.  This comprehensive program gives you precise blood tests, clinical assessment, and specific life coaching to get the results you desire.

Food Sensitivities


Sensitivities to the foods we eat can cause inflammation and leaky gut that often lead to headaches, GI distress, fatigue, and much more.  The challenge is in finding the foods that are causing your symptoms.  Typical anti-inflammatory foods may actually be the cause of your symptoms.  Furthermore, symptoms can show up a few hours or a few days after a food has been eaten making it difficult to identify which foods to eliminate.  Using the Mediator Release Test (MRT), the leading food sensitivity test, will help you identify which foods will help you reduce inflammation quickly and easily.

Following the LEAP (Lifestyle Eating and Performance) process that combines MRT® results with clinical expertise gives the best outlook for patient understanding of foods and inflammation, and creating a personalized eating plan.  Laying the foundation for success and healing, most people experience 25-75% improvement in symptoms in just 7-10 days.

Micronutrients


Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and more are nutrients needed in small amounts (hence the term micronutrients). However, just because they are needed only in small amounts, doesn’t mean they aren’t important. Micronutrient status is one critical piece of your overall health picture. Deficiencies are more common than we realize and have the potential to lead to chronic disease and illness affecting quality of life over time. Micronutrient testing, provided through SpectraCell, offers the most comprehensive nutrient analysis by measuring micronutrients at the cellular level. Paired with dietary counseling, you’re better able to understand the results getting you on the path to the right foods and supplements to correct your deficiencies.

Cardiovascular Assessment


Understand more about your risk of heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes with the CardioMetabolic test through SpectraCell. Cellular metabolism and the cardiovascular system are intricately linked. Many factors can influence your risk of these common diseases. Measuring a complete cardiometabolic profile, this test offers insight into three main areas:  Glycemic Control, a complete Lipid Profile, and Vascular Inflammation. This information will help guided and determine foods, nutrients, and lifestyle interventions that can prevent heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes.

Metabolic Testing


A metabolic test measures your oxygen rate of exchange, and ultimately reports on whether you have a slow, normal, or fast metabolism. You are unique, and so is your metabolism. This test provides you with an accurate measurement of how many calories you burn all day, every day, along with ranges of additional calories to support extra activity or workouts. You’ll know just how many calories to consume – not too many, and not too few – in order to help you reach your weight loss goals.

DNA

 


Testing your DNA provides you with a glimpse into your body and how it works. It can offer specific information about food and lifestyle that can help explain why it’s been so difficult to break through barriers. DNA testing can answer many questions about the types of supplements to take, deficiency predispositions, response to various types of diets, and so much more. The recommendations provided are researched extensively to show that they can change gene expression, and ultimately improve your health.  The DNA report groups fall into four categories:  health enrichment, weight management, nutrition optimization, and endurance performance.

Kari’s Gone Crackers

Actually, I haven’t totally gone crackers, but I did make home baked crackers from scratch the other day.  It makes me realize how convenient our food supply has become and how the amount of food we consume might change if we were forced to make everything from scratch.  I’d also like to think that my crackers were a bit healthier
