WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
New Leaf Nutrition is no longer operating in Wisconsin. If you are in Wisconsin & would like to work with me, I am happy to provide virtual counseling. We are in the process of relocating to Portland, OR.
All visits may also be done virtually as well- either on the phone or via HIPAA-compliant video chat on doxy.me/lindsay. For video chat, go to the Virtual Waiting Room at your appointment start time.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
During your initial nutrition assessment, we will discuss pertinent medical history, nutrition & weight history and what you hope to achieve by working with a dietitian. We will then come up with a strategy to help you achieve your nutrition goals.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
If this is your first appointment, please bring the completed New Client Registration forms emailed to you (or better yet - fill them out online in the patient portal). If you plan to pay with insurance, please bring your insurance card.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MRT AND IgG Testing?
IgG testing for food sensitivities has been invalidated (to read the article, click here). MRT testing is far superior for several reasons. IgG testing only addresses Type III Hypersensitivity reactions - MRT accounts for both Type III & Type IV (type IV pathways are much more commonly involved for those with IBS and migraines). IgG testing only measures IgG - not IgM, Complement or T-cell mediated reactions frequently involved in food sensitivities. Additionally, high levels of IgG are not necessarily a bad thing and do NOT necessarily result in symptoms; high levels of IgG can be protective or damaging. So, it's essentially a meaningless test.
MRT is an end-point test - it doesn't differentiate between which mediators are used - it measures whether or not the reaction occurred. Read more about MRT on the Food Sensitivity Testing page.
