For patients whose headaches are triggered by food and/or chemical sensitivities, identification and elimination of those triggers can bring about dramatic resolution of symptoms.

Not all migraine is diet related.  But if you suffer from chronic daily headache, especially in combination with other chronic symptoms like irritable bowel, fibromyalgia, sinusitis, allergies or other inflammatory reactions, there is a good likelihood that food sensitivities are involved.

Mediator release testing, or MRT, is the most advanced technology for determining what food and/or chemical triggers may be involved.  A skilled dietitian can use MRT test results to create a customized elimination diet that may free you of frequent migraine pain.

“Going through the testing and protocol guided by a LEAP RD has enabled me to become migraine free since 2005-2006 after having chronic migraines for more than 25 years.  Like many others I had made the rounds of several physicians including repeated visits to a reputable headache clinic, taking many medications and trying alternative approaches.  I was shocked to find that I was reactive to the healthful, common foods I was eating often, foods recommended as “safe” on usual headache diets (!)…It’s a real blessing to have come from a point of chronic daily migraine while on several daily preventive medications to being migraine and medication free!”
