What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy Practitioners are trained to help correct the foundations of health through nutritional recommendations and education.

These foundations are: Hydration, Blood Sugar Balance, Fatty Acid Balance, Mineral Balance and Digestion.  When these are in balance often our bodies will function more efficiently and our health improves. Nutritional Therapy Practitioners are trained to identify your imbalances and help you correct them with nutritional counseling in order to attain optimal health.

Nutritional Therapy is science based but still respects the body as a whole. It also recognizes that we are all bio  individuals and have different needs individually.  We recommend a whole food, nutrient rich diet to everyone and know without these, true health and wellness is difficult to attain.

Can Nutritional Therapy Help You?
  • Do you lack energy?
  • Are you chronically tired?
  • Do you need to lose some weight?
  • Do you not feel well although your doctor says there is nothing wrong with you?
  • Do you struggle with food cravings?
  • Do you have digestive problems?
  • Or maybe you try to eat healthy but are confused by all the contradictory information.
If any of these apply to you, a Nutritional Consultation could help you learn how to start on a path to feeling better today.
Your Nutritional Consultation – what to expect

When our bodies are fed properly they have an amazing ability to properly restore imbalances on their own. Research provided by Dr. Weston Price and Dr. Francis Pottenger provided undeniable evidence that eating a whole, properly prepared, nutrient dense diet can restore our health and prevent debilitating deficiencies in our future generations. Research in the new science field called Epigenetics has shown that what we eat can actually change how our genes express themselves.

Gathering information through nutritional questionnaires, diet and health history as well as a hands on Functional Evaluation we determine:

  • what imbalances and deficiencies are present
  • what nutrients are needed to restore imbalances
  • when these imbalances and deficiencies have been restored.

Functional Evaluation

This hands on evaluation is unique to Nutritional Therapy. It is a non-invasive assessment tool. Some of the techniques may be familiar to you (blood pressure, pupil response test) others may be new to you. The Functional Evaluation helps us determine your bio individual needs so we may determine what works best for you.

Initial Visit

Your first visit will be a more in depth visit and may take several hours. We will go over your health and diet history, as well as go through the full functional evaluation. We will discuss recommendations for diet and possible supplementation and come with an agreed upon plan that will work for you. This visit may be broken up into two visits if requested.

For Everyone

Nutritional Therapy is for everyone. We work with people at all stages of life; children, adults and the elderly. Whether you are dealing with a specific problem or would just like to feel better and have more energy, we can help you get on the road to wellness.
