WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
In the realm of holistic health, there are countless practitioners, protocols, processes, and paradigms, and it’s hard to know exactly how they differ and how to choose one over another.
At Orange Plate Nutritional Therapy, I practice Functional Nutritional Therapy, which means that I look at signs, symptoms, and a set of functional blood, stool, and saliva tests, to identify nutritional deficiencies, organ dysfunctions, and dietary and lifestyle triggers that are causing or contributing to my clients’ concerns.
These concerns run the gamut from digestive issues, skin issues, mood problems, hormonal imbalances, brain fog, and fatigue, to autoimmune conditions and chronic degenerative diseases. Functional Nutrition has been proven to improve many of these conditions in countless clinical trials and medical practices around the world.
Functional Nutrition is the process of peeling away layers in a systematic, science-based, anatomy- and physiology-informed process in order to see where the normal function of the body is going awry and what are the factors causing this problem.
Functional Nutrition goes further, looks more deeply, and is more committed to finding the root cause of health problems than many other health practices, both allopathic as well as naturopathic, and has helped many a person get off the merry-go-round of seeing practitioner after practitioner after practitioner and never fully getting to the root of the problem.
