What is Nutritional Therapy?

The fundamental goal of Nutritional Therapy is to encourage people to become knowledgeable about - and responsible for - their own health.  A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) helps individuals reach their optimal level of overall health by supporting and bringing balance to the five foundations:

 

  • Digestion

  • Blood Sugar Regulation 

  • Fatty Acid Balance

  • Mineral Balance

  • Hydration


 

All five are built upon a single, solid base: a properly prepared, nutrient-dense diet

By supporting each of these foundations and helping clients adopt a more nutrient-dense diet, the body’s chemistry can be brought back into natural balance, setting the stage for optimal health.  Nutritional Therapists are trained to evaluate your nutritional needs and make recommendations of dietary change and nutritional supplements. 

**Disclaimer: An NTP is not trained to treat any specific disease or medical condition.  NTPs are also not trained to make medical diagnoses or write prescriptions.  No comment or recommendation from an NTP should be construed as a medical diagnosis or prescription.  If you suffer from a medical or pathological condition, you need to consult with an appropriate healthcare provider.  An NTP is not a substitute for your family physician or other appropriate healthcare provider.
