Common Conditions Associated with Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities and allergies are on the rise in America. The health impact of food sensitivities or allergies can range from immediate hypersensitivity, such as hives and shortness of breath, to delayed inflammatory response, which can be seen as IBS, digestion pains, bowel irregularity, migraines, fatigue, mood disorders, ADHD, and other inflammatory conditions.

Food allergies, celiac disease and food sensitivities all cause immune-mediate inflammatory reactions. However, celiac disease affects <1% of the population, food allergies affects 4-6% of the population and food sensitivities affect 30-40% of the population. Food sensitivities are definitely the largest issue but also the most complex because they are not specific to immunocytes and can trigger the release of 100+ mediators.

At Solstice Health, we focus on identifying your food irritant through a Mediator Release Test (MRT) food sensitivity panel and reviewing a food diary with symptoms to determine foods that trigger episodes. Based on the laboratory blood work results, we will customize a meal plan to eliminate trigger foods and methodically add them back in while monitoring for symptoms.

What Is a Mediator Release Test?

MRT (Mediator Release Test) is the blood test component that measures the inflammatory reaction to 30 food chemicals and 120 foods. The LEAP (Lifestyle, Eating, And Performance) protocol is the process of using these results to treat unwanted symptoms. LEAP is a personalized elimination diet. Your CLT (Certified LEAP Therapist) will guide you through your results in order to greatly reduce or eliminate the unpleasant symptoms you may be suffering with.

The Key to Successful Weight Loss Is…

Studies show 80% of dieters are do-it-yourselfers who bounce from fad diet to fad diet, enjoying short-term success for a lifelong problem. Yes, short-term weight loss is a victory, albeit a minor one, but your ultimate triumph comes from keeping the weight off after dieting. To do this, you must go beyond weight loss and gain an understanding of how and why you gain weight in order to achieve and then maintain a balanced weight.  This is the key to successful weight loss.

Solstice Health Weight Loss Method

Our focus on making people well has allowed us to become the leading medical weight loss program in Wisconsin. We are committed to improving the health and well-being of all our clients. Our medical weight loss program uses Ideal Protein foods, and is designed to produce rapid weight loss with long-lasting results.

Our medically developed natural weight loss protocol gives dieters what they really want: a structured plan that empowers them with the knowledge to put an end to constant dieting. With a stable weight maintenance plan built right in, our dieters learn to eat smarter to sustain lifestyle changes that will assist them in achieving and maintaining better well-being.

With our focus on correcting pancreatic dysfunction and high insulin levels, following our program as prescribed results in a 100% success rate and improved or most often cured diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. This gives our patients a new lease on life. Burning fat while supporting and maintaining muscle mass is vitally important for all levels of performance, including cardiac function, and it is an equally important focus of our program. Learn as you go when, why, and in what combination to eat carbohydrates (sugars), fat, and protein. Utilize all of this knowledge and maintain your results for life.

How This Method Works

There are four phases in the Solstice Weight Loss Protocol. During all four phases, you will receive one-on-one coaching, teaching you how your body packs on pounds and what you should be eating to maintain a stable weight.

Phase One is the primary weight loss phase. You will lose 100% of your weight loss goal during this phase. In Phase Two, the amount of Ideal Protein products you consume will drop from 3 to 2, reducing the cost as you make progress. You will only be on Phase Two for a maximum of 2 weeks. Phase Three will focus on weight stabilization and gradually reintroduce carbohydrates and healthy fats into your diet (in the morning only). Once your weight is stabilized, you will move to the fourth and final phase, which is freedom, where you will apply the smarter eating education you have received from your personal weight loss coach that will assist you in maintaining a stable weight after the program.

Why 4 phases? Why not stop after weight loss? Anyone can lose weight…learning how you can maintain a stable weight should be your ultimate goal. To achieve your weight loss goals and maintain the results, a weight loss program must empower dieters with the knowledge to develop balanced organic eating habits and smarter, sustainable lifestyle choices. This is the Solstice Health difference.
