A self-study online course that helps dietitians and dietetic technicians manage the dietary components of IBS, migraine, arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions
Nearly 60,000,000 Americans suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), migraine headaches, and fibromyalgia. Approximately 1/3 of them suffer moderate to severely debilitating symptoms, are refractory to standard therapies, and are actively seeking a solution for their illness. So, what do IBS, migraine, and fibromyalgia have in common? In many cases, dietary triggers such as foods and food chemicals provoke symptoms. Numerous peer-reviewed controlled studies confirm this fact. Yet for the vast majority of physicians, diet remains one of the most overlooked and disregarded areas of treatment.
A dietary problem requires a dietary solution. And that dietary solution is best administered by a properly trained dietitian or dietetic technician. If food and food chemicals play a role in making a patient ill, how can the patient get well without appropriately addressing diet? The truth is they can’t. That’s why so many patients suffering from these conditions are refractory to conventional drug therapies – because drugs don’t address the underlying problem. Since medications are the primary treatment modality used by most physicians, it’s unrealistic to expect any improvement in outcomes. The time has come for dietitians and dietetic technicians to take the lead in helping patients with these conditions. But what training is needed and where can it be found?
The CLT Training Course
The Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT) Training Course provides dietitians/diet techs with an opportunity to gain access to a highly effective method of helping food sensitive patients. This comprehensive training was developed by a team of dietitians, physicians, immunologists, and medical business professionals with more than 100 years combined experience in treating food sensitivity related conditions. It provides all the necessary tools to manage patients effectively.
The CLT Training Course includes approximately 12 hours of narrated presentations divided into eight modules, the Affiliate Dietitian Guide, a 50-page monograph detailing the physiologic basis of adverse food reactions in IBS and migraine, the proprietary LEAP treatment protocols, templates for all forms needed to implement LEAP into your practice, the certification exam, and support of a LEAP mentor.
(DTRs must have an undergraduate degree in nutrition/dietetics to be eligible for the CLT Training Course.)
