As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), I am certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA) to guide and support individual health and wellness through assessment and education.
How can I help you live your best and healthiest life? You may feel it is time to consider different food choices, in an effort to support healthy functioning of your body. Learning about the nutritional profile of various fruits, vegetables, proteins, and fats can help you make better decisions at each meal. Perhaps you feel you are ready to make some changes in your lifestyle (including activity level, sleep quality, stress management) but not quite sure where or how to start. Maybe you are frustrated with feeling fatigued every afternoon, or feeling uncomfortable after a meal, or waking up in the middle of the night, unable to return to sleep- I can help you to design a food and/or lifestyle plan to address all of these concerns, and will work within your budget and schedule.
Please reach out to chat. Initial consultation calls are complimentary; fees are designed to be economical to encourage you to take the first step toward a healthy-er you.
ABOUT THE NUTRITIONAL THERAPY ASSOCIATION
The NTA was founded in 1997 to “deliver a science based education that equips and connects a community of confident holistic nutrition professionals to harness the power of real food, reconnecting each person to the unique needs and innate wisdom of their bodies to support lasting wellness.”
Nutritional Therapy focuses on balancing the Five Foundations of Optimal Health:
Nutrient Dense, Whole Food Diet
Blood Sugar Regulation
These foundations must be balanced and functioning well for the body to reach optimal wellness. A deficiency or dysfunction in one foundation has far reaching impacts on your whole body. The NTA’s approach is to assess nutritional deficiencies and address them through properly prepared, whole foods diet, supplementation if needed, and lifestyle changes. Importantly, an NTP is NOT trained to diagnose or treat disease or give medical advice. An NTP is trained to support the body’s natural abilities to achieve health and balance, and can work collaboratively as part of a healthcare team.
A final note. One of the most important concepts for nutritional therapy is bio-individuality. Each of you has unique needs and circumstances that require tailored approaches to optimize health and wellness. There is never a one size fits all solution; and so what might be optimal for your friend or loved one may not be optimal for your own health. Food and diet, lifestyles, stress levels, activity levels all are considered when designing a plan for a healthy-er you.
I look forward to working with you!
Be well, my friend!
