LEAP DIET PROGRAM

LIFESTYLE EATING AND PERFORMANCE!

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:

  • Medical studies have shown that foods and food additives may be responsible for a number of ailments and health problems
  • If your diet is the cause of the disease, the medicines you use can only mask the symptoms, and not heal the basis of your problems. What is more, many medicines have side effects, which can lead to subsequent disorders.
  • If you suspect that the diet is the real cause of your everyday problems you need to remember that even very expensive treatment not necessarily lead to expected results.

A TOO FREQUENT PROBLEM

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.

Even the so-called “healthy” products such as a salmon, chicken, apples or garlic can cause symptoms in susceptible individuals. A person suffering from food hypersensitivity should first determine which foods and food additives cause adverse reactions. In the past it was difficult to do it for a number of reasons:
Food reactions can occur within several hours or even with a delay of several days.
Even if you suspect that you suffer from food hypersensitivity, would expect that a headache, you may feel now is the result of what you ate yesterday?

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.

– EXPERIENCE THE CHANGE WITH THE LEAP PROGRAM

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.

Hormonal baackground

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 pore background

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.

Drug-induced acne

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.

How to take care of your skin ?

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:

  • Removing the make up
  • Washing the skin with a wash gel selected in terms of the degree of oiling and drying of the skin, its sensitivity and vascularity
  • Using exfoliating scrubs (fine or enzymatic) twice a week
  • Applying moisturizing preparations in order to prevent excessive drying of the skin by medicinal preparations

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

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.

Bacterial background

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.

Cosmetic background

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.

Available treatments

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:

  • Retinoids –inhibit the formation of blackheads and sebum production, which reduces the risk of inflammation. They can cause skin irritation, so in the case of sensitive skin retinoids must be combined with moisturizing creams with a light texture.
  • Azelaic acid – has an antibacterial effect, inhibits melanogenesis and fights post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
  • Benzoyl peroxide – affects bacteria and prevents antibiotics resistance, it has a peeling effect that deeply cleans pores. It protects against staphylococcus bacteria and yeast. Unfortunately, benzoyl peroxide often leads to skin irritation.
  • Antibiotics – are only used in the case of inflammation. They are never used alone, always used together with retinoids, benzoyl peroxide or azelaic acid. Antibiotics can’t be used chronically in order to prevent recurrence of acne.

General treatment:

  • Antibiotics – – are used in the case of severe acne or intolerance of topical medicines. They shouldn’t be used for more than six months. However, too short treatment is also inadvisable. The treatment should last at least sixteen weeks/doxycycline, lymecyline, tetracycline.
  • Hormonal medicines – this treatment applies only to women who have hormonal changes documented by appropriate examinations. Contraceptive pills are also used in the hormonal treatment. They don’t treat acne, but when they are used, contraceptive pills reduce acne symptoms. The results of the use of hormonal medicines appear after 2-3 months, but not everyone is receptive to this method of treatment.
  • Oral isotretinoin – has been used to treat acne since 1979, so we’re well aware of its effects on the body. Isotretinoin affects all etiopathogenetic factors: significantly reduces the size of sebaceous glands and sebum production, normalizes keratosis of follicles, prevents the development of blackheads and micro-blackheads, as well as by exerting direct anti-inflammatory activity, and inhibits growth of bacteria. Currently, oral isotretinoin is the most effective method of treating acne with the reported index of remission in more than 80% of patients.

The most common scenarios of dermatologist visits

  • Nothing helps –A desperate patient, who is somewhere in between 12, 16 or even 40 years old, comes to a dermatologist. He’s desperate because he had treated the acne, but without results. He used everything. The patient already knows from the Internet that there’re no more preparations which he may try, he spent a lot of money, went from doctor to doctor, and acne still remains untouched.
  • What is wrong? While being 14, 15, or 24 years old you can’t talk about acne in the past tense. Acne will only pass with the tendency of its occurrence will also pass. During this time, it should be consistently treated in accordance with the recommendations of a dermatologist. The dermatologist usually recommends related treatments, i.e. prescribes more than one medicine to be used at the same time. Each of the prescribed medicines affects one of the factors that causes acne. That is why you should carefully follow doctor’s recommendations and take medicines as prescribed. Only then we’ve a chance of defeating the symptoms of the disease, or even completely curing it. Treatment of acne is long, and it can’t be discontinued without doctor’s permission. This recommendation applies to any treatment, but in the case of a chronic disease it’s even more important to not give it up despite the initial lack of effects. Finding another doctor isn’t a new opportunity to cure acne. Changing doctor usually also means discontinuation of the undertaken treatment, which leads to recurrence of lesions. That’s why, if there is going to be a need to consult another dermatologist, it’s necessary to inform him/her about the current course of treatment and possible mistakes
  • It’s a family thing – dermatologist is visited by a 15-year-old girl and her 40-year-old parent. They both have acne. The parent is concerned that after two years of treatment acne problem hasn’t gone away.
  • Why is it like that? These patients have a genetic tendency to the occurrence of acne. In such a case more important is consistent healing the disease than curing it. We’ve no influence on complete cure, but we can lessen symptoms of the disease, and thus eliminate complications. Such therapy is called symptomatic treatment. Diabetes and hypertension are treated in the same way, which similarly to acne have complex genetic etiology.
