"In April of 2018 I was 180 pounds 57 years old and experiencing fatigue, water retention, stiffness in joints especially feet and back, kind of hard getting into and out of the car, feeling like I’m older than I was. I read Cathy Hains's article in Marlene’s Sound Outlook about the MRT food sensitivities testing, read up on it and decided it could be useful information that would help me. I got my results and packet of information May 12, 2018! Stopped eating everything I was sensitive to and eliminated all products with my chemical sensitivities. Following the Leap eating plan faithfully, I started feeling better, moving better and looking better! In two months I had lost 20 pounds and my cholesterol went down from 264 to 204. I had ankles again and my hands weren’t puffy! No more throat clearing and best of all I could walk calmly to the bathroom. No more hyperactive bladder! By mid August I had lost 30 pounds and got some new clothes! I’m feeling so much better now , all because I’m aware of what food was causing chronic inflammation and depriving me of feeling my best. I’m very happy to recommend Cathy Hains and the MRT leap testing to anyone who thinks that they are not feeling as good as they should. Staying on the plan for the new year and rest of life!

Get to the bottom of food sensitivities. Got migraines, IBS, joint pain, inflammation? There's no need for a blind elimination diet when you can finally pinpoint triggers. This is not the less reliable IgG testing, but rather a more much accurate food intolerance testing (not allergy testing).
There are numerous ways to lose weight. But which ones work long-term while everyone else is regaining the weight and getting ill? Cathy stays on top of the field with the latest of evidence-based, healthy ways to lose weight with a comprehensive, integrative-functional methodology.
One of Cathy's many tools is our Healthie® platform, which helps clients manage their weight and helps them get healthy too, by allowing them to message Cathy privately in a secure setting. Can't come in to the office? No problem! You can still "get healthie!"
