What is Mediator Release Testing?
Food sensitivities are complex non-allergic, non-celiac inflammatory reactions that can involve both innate and adaptive immune pathways which can be tested for using Oxford Biomedical Technologies MRT LEAP 150. It’s important to identify these inflammatory reactions because we can then construct a personalized approach to addressing your health concerns. Removing the inflammatory foods will then help your body to heal as the reactants will no longer be able to activate immune pathways. The activation of these pathways and the subsequent response from the body may be involved in your symptomatology or what’s holding you back from feeling your best.
Where Do I Come In?
As an FDN-P I often see food sensitivities manifest into many different complaints from migraines, inability to lose weight, bloating, acne and even hormonal dysregulation among many others. Testing is the key to uncover what’s truly causing your health complaints and holding you back from achieving optimal health. Working closely with me to identify the right test and interpret results will be the first step. This will then be followed by interpretation via Skype consults while we put in place a protocol specific to your needs and goals as it pertains to achieving health and vitality.

Oxford Biomedical Technologies MRT LEAP 150 tests for hidden inflammatory responses to 150 different foods and food-chemicals.
Markers Included on this Test:
- Meats & Poultry
- Flavor Enhancers
Your Symptoms (And How MRT Can Help)
Diet-induced inflammatory reactions cause mediator release (cytokines, histamine, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc.) from various white blood cells (lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils). A variety of triggering mechanisms trigger reactions in various types of white cells leading to the release of pro-inflammatory and proalgesic mediators, such as cytokines, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins. Mediator release and cellular reactivity ultimately results in subclinical and clinical inflammatory effects manifesting in a variety of clinical conditions and symptoms. MRT uses a patented combination of flow cytometry and proprietary impedance technology to measure subtle volumetric changes in white blood cell populations simultaneously. Volumetric changes after food or food-chemical challenge are quantified and reported as Non-Reactive, Moderately Reactive, or Reactive.
