Nutritional Therapy offers a holistic approach to health and healing through the power of nutrient dense, whole, real food. The focus is on balance and bioindividuality – each and every body has a different story, and therefore different internal chemical imbalances that can manifest as different outward symptoms. Nutritional Therapy works to identify nutrient deficiencies that are contributing to or causing these imbalances, and correct them through diet, lifestyle changes, and targeted nutrients. Nutritional therapists do not diagnose or treat disease, but work to balance the body with the goal of guiding individuals back on the path to health.
Nutritional Therapy begins by identifying your bioindividual nutrient needs. Through ongoing support and education, Nutritional Therapy will give you a lifetime of tools you can use to help you feel your best, and optimize and maintain your health.
Your Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine where nutrient deficiencies may be hiding to put together a personalized plan, tailored toward balancing your body to achieve your goals.
Information gathering tools:
Initial interview: Information on your health concerns, goals, and habits, as well as some history for context
Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire (NAQ): Online questionnaire that identifies all of your particular symptoms and helps determine how your systems are functioning
Food journal: 3-day journal of what you ate/drank and when, and how you felt
Functional Evaluation (FE): Performed in person, uses a series of palpation points and other tests to identify your body’s inherent strengths and weaknesses
Lingual-neuro testing (LNT): A biofeedback tool that accesses the body's innate ability to determine what it needs and what it does not need in order to correct a specific problem
