Those who suffer from migraines, IBS, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, among other chronic health problems, have often heard that they’re exaggerating their symptoms and pain; that they look good, so they mustn’t feel so bad; that they’re just going to have to learn to live with their discomfort because there’s really nothing anyone can do. These health disorders can disrupt your personal and professional life and be incredibly isolating.
Your pain, discomfort, fatigue, and inflammation are very real, and oftentimes they are triggered by foods, chemicals, or additives. Fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, and IBS all have a direct tie to food sensitivities. Food sensitivities are incredibly difficult to identify. Unlike allergies (which have immediate symptoms), sensitivities symptoms might not appear until 48 – 72 hours after ingesting the reactive food. Moreover, avoidance isn’t easy. Most with food allergies simply have to cut one or two foods out of their diets. Those with sensitivities can have up to 20 foods, chemicals, or additives that might affect them and this, too, can depend on the amount consumed.
The MRT-LEAP Symptom Relief Program is a 12 week program that can give you the tools you need to live a life of wellness and health, reducing chronic pain, inflammation, IBS, migraines and more.

As NYC Certified Nutritionists and Registered Dietitians, we believe that good nutrition is a human right, fundamental to health, and everyone should have access to the best possible care and information. We believe with the right guidance, everyone can develop healthy, sustainable habits to live lives of wellness.
Our team has five Certified LEAP Therapists (CLT) with a combined 35 years experience working with patients who suffer from diet-induced inflammation.
The MRT-LEAP (Mediator Release Test – Lifestyle, Eating and Performance) is the most sophisticated, accurate (sensitivity 94.5% & specificity 91.7%) test developed to detect food sensitivities, followed by a strict diet protocol (LEAP) with the guidance from a Certified Leap Therapist (CLT). It tests 170 foods, additives, and chemicals to identify hidden inflammatory responses to foods and chemicals.
Results are presented in a Red, Yellow, Green. Red is your most reactive foods (you would have to avoid for 6 months), Yellow are foods that are moderately reactive (you would have to avoid for 3 months), and Green are your least reactive foods. You eat the least reactive foods in the first month.
Results take approximately one week. Once you have the results, you can schedule a follow-up appointment with one of the RD CLTs on the team to develop a personalized elimination diet, so you can give your body the chance to heal.
With the MRT, you can take the guesswork out of what is triggering your condition: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), fibromyalgia, migraines, and more.

It was very informative and helpful. I learned a lot on my visit with Dr Nikita Kapur. She was very easy to talk to and I got some good suggestions. I left really thinking about how to work on my eating composition
We met Nikita kapur and she is outstanding. She was very knowledgable and gave a realistic advise on diet. In today's social world its important for the dietician to look at all outlooks and she explained us everything with so much details. Diet is about balanced eating and have been following her advice since we met her and already feel a difference! She is amazing !!!
Met with Erika and she was lovely. Very nice and easy to talk to. She offered up a test/solution based on my issues described and I left with a solid plan of action. Looking forward to working with her more and seeing if we can get to the bottom of my problems.
I have been going to Compass for some time now and Erika is just the best. She is very understanding and works with you to tailor my eating habits and does not look to take things away. She has helped me discover how to eat better with simple changes. I recommend her to anyone looking for a great nutritionist.
Erika helped me get unstuck off a weight plateau I've been stuck on for 10 years. It's amazing.
I had my first appointment with Dr Nikita Kapur today and she was wonderful. She communicated a ton of information, but broke things down in a way that was easy to understand and digest. I was recently diagnosed with SIBO (and have autoimmune diseases) and went to her to help with reintroduction of foods, but learned so much more. While I feel there is a long road ahead of me, I feel confident that with her guidance, I will get my gut health to a good place.
Nikita has been an instrumental guide in helping me navigate the recovery process after a SIBO diagnosis and working through the elimination/reintroduction diet. I know folks with IBS dealing with these elimination diets on their own and they all wish they could have access to a nutritionist throughout the process - I'm lucky to have been referred to Compass by my GI doc and lucky to have Nikita keeping me sane through the process.
Met with Nikita Kapur today and got some great advice on ways to improve diet and wellness game. Thank you, Nikita.
Many claim to be a nutritionist. But only a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) meets rigorous academic requirements with clinical training, holding a degree from an accredited university. Our RDNs stay informed of guidelines set by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to provide our patients with expert nutrition counseling.
