Welcome! If you are interested in a personalized diet approach to chronic pain and/or inflammation symptoms, you are in the right place.
Most inflammation-related conditions should include a nutrition component to the approach. However each of us (even those with the same diagnosis) benefit from help that is specific to the individual patient. This improves motivation, compliance and hopefully outcomes.
Sometimes, unique reactions to certain foods are part of the problem. There are an increasing number of food sensitivity tests being marketed. All have pros and cons, and some are better at providing clinically useful information that can be incorporated into up-to-date diet guidelines for a particular condition.
This practice prefers the MRT food sensitivity screening test for multiple reasons. If after reading through this site you feel this approach is worth checking out, contact us to discuss if we are a good fit and answer your questions.
What’s new? Practice has relocated to East Greenwich, RI (see contact info); in-person office hours are Wednesdays and Fridays. (Virtual services also available during the COVID crisis.) The MRT panel has been expanded to 170 foods which gives us even more choices of what TO eat to feel better. Let’s pick and choose together to create a personalized clean diet that hopefully improves your day to day.
Enjoy this Epicurious post featuring the potential benefit of MRT when food is part of what ails you: https://www.epicurious.com/expert-advice/crohns-disease-how-i-felt-had-to-do-with-food-article. You may find that not only do you feel better but you also develop new healthy habits!
