We offer you the LEAP program based on the MRT TEST - a perfect way to fight the diseases, the causes of which is food hypersensitivity.
Does food worsen your well-being? Do you suffer from persistent ailments that you cannot get rid of? Do you feel that the medicines you take do not fight the causes of the disease?
If so, here are a couple of important facts which you should know:
Millions of people suffer from food hypersensitivity. Ailments such as: migraines and headaches, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diarrhoea, heartburn/ reflux disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis, arthralgia, myalgia, weight changes, chronic fatigue, chronic sinusitis, insomnia, cutaneous lesions, lack of clarity of thinking and many others unpleasant and chronic health problems are very often a result of immune response to food, which we consume.
Often the degree of the reaction depends on the dose of the food eaten. This means that small to medium quantities of reactive substances may not cause any symptoms, while the reaction occurs only after eating a large quantity of the food. Similarly, after eating 2 or 3 medium portions of reactive products, the symptoms may occur that would not occur after eating only one of these foods.
In people with food hypersensitivity the same symptoms may finally be caused by various foods, and usually there are several of them, not just 1 or 2.
In addition to the foregoing, the most often used blood test (ELISA IgG) to detect food hypersensitivity can show only one, and not the most important, type of reaction (type 3, which comprises only 25% of all reactions to food).
Furthermore, the detection of the reaction of the IgG type does not allow to examine sensitivity to chemicals in foods. Therefore, the LEAP® program that overcomes these troublesome diagnostic obstacles is a specific program. LEAP includes the patented MRT blood test (i.e. Mediator Release Test®), which takes into account the type 3 and the more frequently occurring type 4 of the delayed allergic reactions. MRT also detects sensitivity to chemical additives found in food products. This means rapid and more complete assistance to those who submit to the MRT examination. Independent scientific studies have confirmed that the MRT is the most accurate and most versatile test for hypersensitivity to foods and food additives.
Those who need additional support beyond the test itself can have an advice of a nutritionist or a doctor, who will also determine the Metabolic Type. This means that your diet will not only be free of products and chemicals that are harmful for you, but also good for your body metabolic type.
The use of the LEAP program allows to unleash thousands of people in Poland and in the world of symptoms, which once seemed to be an integral part of a human life.
Even world-class athletes have used LEAP in order to achieve even better results.
Since acne doesn’t occur in man before sex hormones appear in his body, we’re sure that occurrence of acne has hormonal background.
However, not the number of hormones, but the way the hormones, which are in norm (considering their amount), affect the sebaceous gland. So, while speaking about hormonal background of acne, we don’t have quantitative hormonal imbalance in mind, but genetically determined amount of 5-alpha reductase and local oversensitivity of follicle to androgen DHT hormones. With the increase of 5-alpha reductase and reductase activity (it’s a genetic trait), also the level of DHT increases – hence a stronger impact on keratosis, sebum production and appearance of skin lesions.
However, the hormone tests for the treatment of acne is not a standard. In the dermatological diagnosis they are performed only if there are any additional symptoms that indicate hormonal problems such as: menstrual disorders, excessive pubic hair or face hair, hair loss or lack of progress in treatment.
Estrogens and compounds having an action similar to estrogens inhibit the secretion of sebum. That is why the contraceptive treatment with high-dose of estrogens has a beneficial effect on the skin.
Even the local administration of estrogens reduces the secretion of sebum. Unfortunately, depending on the sensitivity of estrogens receptors in the hair follicles, the administration of estrogens does not always have a positive effect on the course of acne. It depends on our individual genetic factors.
Clogged pores are the endings of the pilosebaceous gland that are blocked. Excessive thickening of the epidermis in the mouth of the gland onto the surface of the skin is usually associated with abnormal exfoliation of dead cells and is the primary point in the development of acne i.e. micro-blackheads.
These changes are not visible to the naked eye, but are crucial for further changes. Therefore, the treatment cannot be limited to visible lesions, but should cover all the skin, where there is a tendency to change.
Obstruction of a sebaceous gland by corneal cells restricts oxygen supply to this micro-organ, thus creating a perfect breeding ground for bacteria p. acnes. Bacteria grow and cause further inflammation.
Some drugs may cause acne. However, that is not acne vulgaris. E.g. over-exposure to halogenated compounds, apart from heavy damage to body organs, may cause serious skin lesions.
Corticosteroids, both inhaled and applied locally may lead to acne-like lesions. This is the case also with using anabolic substances that facilitate muscle growth, which may result in acne skin changes.
Together with local treatment, skin needs effective and safe care and sun protection (acne treatment medications increase skin sensitivity to sun exposure).Skin care and the selection of professional products should always be agreed with the dermatologist or at least consulted with a pharmacist.
The proper recommended skin care:
There are no contraindications to use of make-up and corrective sticks. – In addition, modern dermocosmetics undercoats, powders and sticks have a reducing effect on the secretion of sebum and give the skin a matte appearance. They have astringent, healing and soothing, they often inhibit the development of additional bacterial flora.
Very important are treatments in aesthetic medicine cabinet, which empty the contents of the cutaneous horn and thus reduce the inflammation, reduce sebum production, reduce development of acnes, eliminate skin discoloration, scars and other complications.
The most commonly used and recommended for the acne treatment are chemical or medical peels combined with mechanical removal of blackheads. These treatments involve the use of various chemicals that reduce the cohesion of corneocytes, and prevent the production of the cutaneous horn.They have a sebostatic, antiseptic and bleaching activity, they cause exfoliation and skin regeneration, thereby reducing the complications. The only condition is that the skin should be prepared with local or oral medications.
Seborrheic background plays an important role among the causes of acne. The reason is not only the quantity of sebum, but also its composition.
Sometimes acne affects a part of the human skin, which by nature is dry or very dry. Abnormal epidermal keratosis can lead to seborrhoea inside the plugged sebaceous glands which starts a whole cascade of changes.
The number of p. acnes is proportional to the amount of sebum produced. In teenagers with acne there is an increased production of sebum, which in turn means greater colonization of p. acnes.
These bacteria produce factors that are involved in the development of the inflammatory condition. Whether the inflammation occurs and what size it has depends on the innate ability of the human body’s immune response to these factors.
Hereditary hypersensitivity of the immune system to p. acnes is responsible for the initiation and development of acne lesions, and not the specific number of p. acnes. These bacteria also have a protective function – fatty acids produced by p. acnes inhibit the growth of an infection caused by streptococcus of the A group.
Cosmetics, especially colour cosmetics, may increase keratosis in the mouths of sebaceous glands. That is why you should pick cosmetics and dermocosmetics, which don’t have comedogenic effects.
It’s advisable to use cosmetics and dermocosmetics recommended by dermatologists that can help curing or alleviating symptoms of acne.
There’re a number of acne treatments based on different strategies, which were established by an international group of experts. However, unfortunately every acne is a bit different and each patient should be consulted individually.
Each method of treatment, even if it brings a brief improvement, must be applied on the basis of months, or even years long supportive measures.
Depending on the form and severity of acne we use topical, general or physical treatment, and often combine them into a single treatment.
Topical therapy: should include all etiopathogenetic causes. That’s why in this kind of treatment several medicines are used at once:
