how to do the L.E.A.P. DIET

Because no blood test can test all foods and ingredients in the food supply there are thousands, we must use the MRT results to guide an elimination diet, starting with tested safe foods and expanding from there. If you simply avoid the foods that are shown to be reactive of the foods tested, you will continue to eat lots of reactive foods that are untested and never achieve full reduction of inflammation from foods. The way to effectively calm inflammation is to ONLY EAT tested safe foods for a minimum of 4 weeks before introducing untested items one at a time to see which untested foods trigger symptoms. This comprehensive approach is why my patients get such amazing results time after time! These are the foods that are often at the root of the problem.

Mark Hyman, whose recommendations have been covered, recommends delayed food allergy testing to guide the elimination diet. Where one would might have immediate hives and dangerous swelling of the throat and closing of the airway with an IgE-mediated food allergy, a non-IgE-mediated food allergy via a variety of other inflammatory immune pathways typically evokes understated symptoms which do not put the person in immediate danger, such as skin rashes, rosy cheeks, joint pain, digestive problems, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, diarrhea, etc. Way to go Lily, stay positive and continue posting I love reading your emails.

Depending on the individual, the diet can be helpful in just about any condition where inflammation is involved, but especially. When released from immune cells, inflammatory chemical mediators such as histamine, cytokines, and prostaglandins produce damaging effects on body tissues, leading to the development of symptoms. These symptoms are often delayed and the response is called a non- IgE-mediated food or chemical allergy. Foods and food chemicals either naturally occurring or man-made, can cause symptoms and cause or worsen inflammatory conditions, including autoimmune diseases. Additionally, the symptoms are more chronic and subtle, in contrast to an IgE-mediated response. Where one would might have immediate hives and dangerous swelling of the throat and closing of the airway with an IgE-mediated food allergy, a non-IgE-mediated food allergy via a variety of other inflammatory immune pathways typically evokes understated symptoms which do not put the person in immediate danger, such as skin rashes, rosy cheeks, joint pain, digestive problems, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, diarrhea, etc. Identifying foods which trigger a delayed response can be very difficult without testing, especially if multiple foods are causing the total inflammatory response, which is most often the case.
