The MRT (Mediator Release Test) is a food sensitivity blood test that analyzes the body’s reaction to 170 different foods and chemicals. Rather than an elimination diet, this program starts with the foods you are most likely to tolerate and then gradually incorporates the foods more likely to trigger symptoms. Since there are both false positives and false negatives, like all elimination diets, a challenge phase is required. Ultimately a diversified plan composed of tolerated foods must be developed.
