I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) and I got my certification from The Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA). The “F” part of my certification means that I have additional training on doing a hands-on functional assessment of the body (in-person sessions only) to determine where each individual needs some additional support. I’m also trained in testing supplements with the client (in-person sessions only) to determine which ones they respond best to.
Functional Nutrition sorta kinda sounds like something that might be for you but you want more info. It intrigues you but what the heck is it? I get it! So let’s dive in to what Functional Nutrition is and how it can help you reclaim your life.
Essentially it is Bio-individual and holistic approach to nutrition but let’s break this down even further.
Standard nutrition advice, one that you may get from a doctor’s office, is old school and outdated. Standard “diet” advice looks at things like, calories in vs calories out. How much you currently weigh and how active you are and then presents you with a generic calorie number to hit everyday. And if you don’t see results or have a negative reaction, that’s your problem because you’re not doing it right.
Standard Nutrition advice takes a superficial look at a complex issue.
And it doesn’t work because our bodies are way more complex than that. I’m betting you tried this or something similar, and it didn’t work for you which is why you’re here! You are looking for an alternative and inclusive way to approach nutrition so you can reach your goals.
Nutritional Therapy looks at the whole individual in order to create a protocol unique to each person. With each client I take a deep dive into:
- Your current circumstances
- Health History
- Health Goals
- Past Treatment
And go even further during a 2 hour health dive session. By gathering all this data, together we work on a protocol that is sustainable and unique to you. We address foundations that are key in helping you manage your symptoms and supporting your body’s natural healing process. Lifestyle and nutrition are just two of the main foundations that we focus on. I also take a look at stressors in your life and we talk a lot about mindset and limiting beliefs.
We work together at a foundational level to help you reclaim your life, feel empowered around your health, and freedom around eating amazing nourishing foods that support your body and help you feel awesome.
Working to find the root cause of your symptoms so that we can support your body in restoring balance and you can get back to living the life you crave.
