Digestive Issues

We do this by first lowering inflammation with a low inflammatory diet custom to you which is done through food sensitivity testing (MRT food sensitivity test and LEAP Immuno Calm Protocol).

We will then take a deep dive looking at your microbiome through a functional stool test called The GI Map to check for bacteria, viruses, digestive and immune function within the gut.

Client Successes

“Vanessa was a game changer in allowing me to learn principles to guide my weight loss and healthy lifestyle that would stand the test of time. Dieting had led me to gain and lose weight in yo-yo fashion without sustained results. Vanessa’s guidance taught me how to make changes that I could continue indefinitely while still living a healthy and happy life along the way. I’m so pleased not just with my weight loss but also with my confidence in being able to carry this forward myself” -Fiona F.

Client Successes

"Leap/MRT/working with Vanessa has been life changing and I know I will be able to continue on this journey of healthier eating. I’ve learned a lot about ingredients and other products that I can use to substitute the items that I should avoid. I saw results the first week as I felt less inflammation and symptoms decreased significantly. I’ve also lost 15 lbs in 8 weeks. I am happy that I started the program with Vanessa and that we will continue to work together to achieve my goals!” -Milvia K Vega

Client Successes

"I had no idea how much food sensitivities could influence how I felt. I've gone from having 15 migraine days a month to around 2 days. Going through the MRT/LEAP process with Vanessa was truly eyeopening and life changing! I had always felt like I was a "healthy" eater, I limited sugar, alcohol, caffeine, processed foods, I never drank sodas or artificial sweeteners. But the highly detailed MRT test is unlike any diet, it truly pinpoints what items you should consider avoiding. Using those results and having Vanessa walk me through a food elimination diet and then reintroducing more reactive items slowly was a enormous gift. She made the process easy and was a true cheerleader!"
