WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
Nutrition, according to the Nutritional Therapy Association, from which I received my training in Nutritional Therapy in 2016, has been defined as a science focused on the interactions between living organisms and their food, which includes the study of the biological processes used in consuming food and the body’s ability to use the nutrients contained therein.
I practice Nutritional Therapy by looking at the signs, symptoms, diet and lifestyle of my clients and, using what I know about the anatomy and physiology of the human body, making nutritional suggestions in order to bring those signs and symptoms to as close to a desired state as possible.
To do this, I use a combination of targeted diet and lifestyle changes, as well as nutritional supplements, informed by results gained from the use of functional and clinical tests and a monitoring of signs and symptoms throughout the therapeutic process.
In short, I try to remove any dietary, lifestyle, or physiological dysfunction barriers to health and give the body what it needs to function the way it was designed to function.
