      MRT Food Sensitivity Testing in Raleigh NC

      Food sensitivities are extremely common and appear to be on the increase. Estimates suggest as many as 20 percent of the world's population may suffer with food sensitivities. Though more common than food allergies, food sensitivities can be hard to diagnose – not only because of their wide range of symptoms, but because they may cause delayed symptoms hours to days after the triggering food is ingested. By the time the reaction occurs, many people have no idea what might have triggered their symptoms.

      If left untreated, food sensitivities can lead to systemic inflammation which, over time, can contribute to major health problems. Don’t let years slip away and unnecessary physical damage continue without seeing how addressing food sensitivity issues can contribute to your overall health, wellness, and vitality!

      MRT FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING provides insight into inflammation-provoking foods and food chemicals, but it also identifies the foods that are optimal choices for your ultimate health and wellness.

      MRT FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING utilizes the Mediator Release Test (MRT) patented by Oxford Biomedical Technologies. Quantifying the inflammatory response to foods and food chemicals, MRT serves as a functional measurement of diet-induced sensitivity pathways. MRT FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING works to simplify a highly complex reaction and translates that into the most useable clinical information available.

      Potential Symptoms of Food Sensitivities

      The list of symptoms below is not intended to be diagnostic of any food sensitivities, but it may be helpful in assessing whether you are dealing with a food sensitivity. It's most important to pay attention to symptoms that don’t get better with time. What you’re looking for are symptoms that are ongoing - especially if you experience them every time you eat certain foods.

      Food sensitivity symptoms can sometimes mimic mild allergic reactions. Symptoms may not always manifest immediately, and in some cases, it could be a few days before your particular issues appear. Some of the possible early symptoms of the most common food sensitivities could include:

      • Migraines or headaches
      • Muscle aches
      • Acne
      • Itching
      • Congestion and/or sneezing
      • Fatigue
      • Persistent cough
      • Runny nose
      • Brain fog
      • Joint pain

      Digestive issues that cause problems with eating or swallowing, changes in your appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation usually suggest food intolerances, but can also be a part of your reaction to a food sensitivity in some cases.

      It is important to understand your particular symptoms and their origin during the diagnosis stage of your testing and treatment at New Life Aesthetics. To properly diagnose your particular food sensitivity(ies), we will conduct thorough testing and a comprehensive medical evaluation.

      The Importance of Early Detection

      Unlike food allergies, which in extreme cases can be fatal, food sensitivities typically present with symptoms that are uncomfortable. But if left untreated, food sensitivities can lead to systemic inflammation which, over time, can contribute to major health problems.

      Many neurodegenerative diseases, for instance, illustrate the connection between food sensitivities and neural inflammation. Accurate early detection of food sensitivities is critical to avert ongoing damage to your health.

      At New Life Aesthetics in Raleigh NC, we understand that an accurate testing and diagnosis of food sensitivities is the first step in addressing them.


      There are so many reasons to choose MRT FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING. Consider just a few:

      • Provides information no other blood test can offer
      • Identifies the best foods for you
      • Directly applicable to a unique multi-step eating plan
      • Cutting-edge, patented and backed by research

      What to Expect with MRT FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING at New Life Aesthetics

      At your initial consultation, we will spend time reviewing your medical history and any medications you’re taking, as well as answering any particular questions you may have. We recommend that you prepare a list of your symptoms prior to your first consultation. We may need to administer other medical tests to rule out other conditions.

      At New Life Aesthetics, we prescribe testing in consultation and then spend an hour with each patient going over results and how to implement changes.

      This is not a skin prick test. It is a blood test that measures the amount of mediators released from your white blood cells when exposed to food antigens and food chemicals. Your MRT panel results may take up to two weeks to come back.

      Does Insurance Cover the MRT FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING?

      Unfortunately, MRT testing is not covered by any insurance plans, but you can usually use an FSA/HSA card to pay for the test or any blood draw fees associated with MRT.
