NATURAL MEDICINE THERAPY:  FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION

What is Functional Nutritional Nutrition?   Nutritional Therapy addresses imbalances in the body through proper nutrition to achieve optimal health.   functional-nutrition

I recognize six foundations which are essential to building health. Our bodies need strong, balanced foundations to provide the nourishment and energy for a vibrant, healthy life.  Functional Nutritional Therapy works to improve health and vitality by addressing six foundations of health.

  • Diet
  • Digestion
  • Blood sugar balance
  • Mineral balance
  • Fatty acid balance
  • Hydration

As a Functional Nutritional Therapist I view the body as a whole and aim to find the underlying cause of health issues. I focus on how the systems work together, rather than on isolated symptoms and I work to aid the body’s natural ability to heal itself. I believe that preventive medicine is the best kind of medicine and I know there are many external factors that influence health aside from nutrition. I recognize that each person is different, and require a customized nutrition plan.

Our work together will start with an examination of your current diet, lifestyle, and health concerns. We will review your health history, discuss your goals, and then use a customized combination of a nutrient-dense whole foods plan, supplement protocols, and laboratory testing (where needed) to help find the best path for you. I might recommend adding or avoiding foods, supplementation to help you heal, and lifestyle changes to help with balance. If you have food sensitivities, I’ll help you design a nutrition plan that includes healthy, satisfying alternatives. I like to focus on what you CAN eat, not what you shouldn’t. Every client is treated as an individual—there’s no cookie-cutter solution to your unique needs.

Together, we’ll come up with a plan that is achievable and feels manageable, and that goes at a pace you feel comfortable handling. I’ll help you sort through all of the conflicting information that’s out there, providing you with the knowledge and support you need to feel empowered to play a role in restoring your own health.

I’m also a believer in “test, don’t guess.” When the foundational approach outlined above isn’t quite enough, and the picture is more complex, I offer laboratory testing in such areas as adrenal health, digestion, food sensitivities and hair tissue mineral analysis. I use specific, highly sensitive and accurate tests that differ from what you might find elsewhere. I am trained to interpret these tests, and to work with you to provide nutritional support for the body based on the results and your health goals. I do not diagnose or treat disease.
For your part, you will be one of my most successful clients if you:

  • Are ready to make a committed investment of time, effort, and/or money in your health and wellbeing.
  • Have a clear idea of your general health concerns but need guidance in making the best dietary decisions.
  • Believe diet plays an important role in your overall mental and physical health and wellbeing.
  • Are committed to making the diet and lifestyle changes that will help you reach your wellness goals.
  • Will not refuse to give up a specific type of food, if we discover that those foods are making you sick.
  • Understand that laboratory testing and supplementation may be necessary to your healing process.
  • Want to receive education and support, but not rigidity and rules.
  • Want to work with a nutritionist who is 100% devoted to your successful health outcomes, and has the knowledge to back up her recommendations.
