What is Nutritional Therapy?
The fundamental goal of Nutritional Therapy is to empower you with knowledge to take control of your own health.
Nutritional Therapy focuses on supporting the body as a whole. It involves looking for possible nutrient deficiencies, and then helping support the body with the nutrients it needs through fresh, whole foods, so the body can bring itself back into balance.
There are five Foundations of Nutrition that all have to be in balance for the body to be healthy. They all interact with each other, and when one of them goes wonky, the others go wonky, too! (Wonky being a technical term, obviously.)
- A Properly-Prepared, Nutrient-Dense Diet
- Blood Sugar
- Fatty Acids
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I don’t diagnose or treat, but I do educate and inform.
My goal is to empower you by teaching you how the body should work and how it can go wrong, and to inspire you to make changes that will help your body naturally bring itself into balance.
Nutritional Therapy is for you if:
- You are 100% committed to the process.
- Are willing to take an active role in your health, as a joint partnership between practitioner and client.
- You are willing to make changes to how you eat and to your lifestyle.
- You are willing to spend time in the kitchen to prepare real food.
- You are willing to prioritize sleep and stress management.
- You are fed up with feeling sick, tired, run down, and constantly craving sugar.
- You want to experience side effects such as more energy, better sleep, reduced sugar cravings, and a clearer head.
Nutritional Therapy is NOT for you if:
- You’re looking for a quick fix or a magic pill that will solve all your problems.
- You just want to hand off the task of managing your health to a practitioner.
- You’re not willing to learn to cook or spend time in the kitchen, or you’re not willing to make lifestyle changes if aspects of your lifestyle are hindering your progress.
- You are not willing to incorporate animal products therapeutically. (It’s possible as a vegetarian if you incorporate good quality eggs and dairy, but unfortunately this approach is not compatible with a vegan diet. We won’t be able to make progress if we are leaving major nutrient groups on the table. I’m happy to explain more about why certain nutrients must come from animal sources!)
