The LEAP Program (Lifestyle, Eating and Performance) is a strategic method of dealing with the dietary components of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), migraines, fibromyalgia, joint and muscle pain, fatigue, vomiting, chronic sinusitis, ADD, Autism and other symptoms caused by delayed food sensitivities.

IBS, migraine, and fibromyalgia affect 60,000,000 Americans. Roughly 2/3 of them are women.  Unfortunately, conventional treatments (including pharmaceutical therapies) are very often unsuccessful.  Diet is typically the area that gets the least amount of attention but in most cases is the key for the patient to find relief.

Food sensitivities are much more common than food allergies. Yes there is a difference! In a true food allergy, the immune system produces antibodies and histamine in response to the specific food, according to the National Library of Medicine.  The subsequent symptoms include itching, wheezing, cramping, swelling and anaphylactic shock – which can occur within minutes and result in death. Food sensitivities produce delayed reactions — from a few hours to several days — and commonly affect the gastrointestinal tract. The symptoms are sometimes less extreme than a food allergy reaction, but can be chronic and debilitating for the patient.

HartsSpace can provide patients with the means to take the MRT blood test which tests their blood cells reactions to 150 different food and food chemicals. With the obtained MRT test results Cat McPherson Certified Nutritionist Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT) will design a personalized diet plan that can relax the upset immune system leading to a reduction in symptoms.

Cat McPherson MS, CN, CLT looks forward to helping clients with these health problems utilizing the most accurate and successful treatment option for food sensitivity.
