What is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner™?
A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner™ (NTP) is certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc. NTPs are trained in the Foundations of Health - A Nutrient-Dense Whole Food Diet, Digestion and Elimination, Essential Fatty Acids, Blood Sugar Handling, and Mineral Needs. NTPs are certified to analyze a client's nutritional needs by identifying deficiencies using several tools: Client Reported Health History, Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire (NAQ), Functional Evaluation and Lingual-Neuro Testing. A NTP does not provide medical diagnosis or treatment for medically diagnosed conditions. Rather, a NTP reviews signs and symptoms to provide guidance for a client’s bio-individual diet and lifestyle modifications in an effort to achieve and support optimal health. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of recommendations from a NTP. To learn more about the NTP program please visit www.nutritionaltherapy.com.
Who Can Benefit from Nutritional Therapy?
Nutrition is a fundamental component of an overall healthy life. Without good food and the right food for your bio-individual needs, the best supplements, workouts, sleep and stress management won’t keep you optimally well. Every cell in our body requires nutrients from the food we eat and the drinks we drink to function optimally. And everyone is made up of a whole lot of cells. Cells need food. People need food. Understanding how and what to eat is essential to keeping you well now and into old age.
Ancestral Approach – What it Means
I truly believe that our bodies have an innate intelligence which allows it to heal itself when given the proper raw materials and care to do so. An Ancestral Approach takes into consideration the 7 pillars of health – getting back to the basics. In other words, an Ancestral Approach considers the fundamental every day actions and nourishment that has allowed mankind to thrive for thousands of years. The 7 pillars of an Ancestral Approach are as follows:
1. A Properly Prepared Whole Food Diet
4. Optimal Body Function
5. Time in Nature
6. Non-Toxic Environment
7. Community – Connecting with your family and friends
Nutritional Therapy Overview
Nutritional Therapy Services are tailored to meet your individual needs. One on one consultation packages begin with an incredibly thorough initial interview and nutritional assessment questionnaire. Next, we meet again to review the findings and provide your personalized recommendations including diet, movement, sleep, and lifestyle changes. From there you choose the duration you wish to stay engaged – 4, 6, or 10 follow-up consultations. The follow-up consults can span 2 to 6 months or longer, depending on the frequency we set for the appointments (every other week or once per month).
The Functional Evaluation with Lingual-Neuro Testing is included as an add-on for in-person clients and only after the initial consultation.
