Functional
Nutritional Therapy

Most people have no idea how good they are designed to feel.

Nutritional therapy uses the powers of nutrient-dense, whole-food to reverse the negative effects of a modern diet and lifestyle.

With science-based education and evaluative tools, a Nutritional Therapist works with a client to correct nutritional imbalances and deficiencies. Working foundational allows the body to restore its incredible ability to selfheal given the right resources.

It’s All About The Foundations of Health

“This illustration above is representation of how I view health and where I focus when working with clients. At the base of the foundations, is food. Properly prepared, nutrient-dense food is primary nutrition. It is responsible for supplying the body with everything it needs to function optimally. In addition, there are five important fundamental factors that form the basis of our health. They are digestion, balanced blood sugar, balanced minerals, appropriate fatty acids, and adequate hydration.

For each of these foundations, many books have been written. For many experts, it’s all about digestion. When it comes to wellness, their primary focus is digestion and assimilation of nutrients. And, of course, they are right. For other health gurus, blood sugar is of primary importance. Ensuring that blood sugar is balanced is essential in order to keep our organs healthy. Yet others focus on omega 3 fatty acids and stress their importance, and minerals and water also have their authoritative advocates in the health field. The truth is that they are all correct. All of these biochemical foundations are immensely important and, together, help determine the fundamental well being of the body.

Of course these are not the issues for which most people seek help. What signals concern for most are degenerative health problems like cardiovascular dysfunction, pain, hormonal imbalances, and immune issues.

When the foundations become weak, imbalance in other body systems often occurs.

The body has a marvelous ability to heal itself, given the proper resources. This is the basis of my work. It is my privilege and honor to assist my clients in their quest for good health. If you are tired of not getting answers and want to see how amazing you can feel naturally, give me a call!”

True healing takes time and dedication to address root cause, no more symptom managing. This allows for substantial healing and lasting change.

What Nutritional Therapy is Not

One Size Fits all

Each person I work with is seen as an individual with unique nutritional needs. Each client I serve, we work together to create custom plans to address the individual needs and to support the whole as well as the parts.

Frequently Asked Questions

The tapering of medication is not within the scope of a Nutritional Therapist and should not be done without the supervision of a physician.  

However, as therapy progresses you may find that your need for certain medications is decreased and you are able to safely stop them. 

Never decrease or stop a medication without discussing it with your prescribing provider.

Weight gain is often a result of metabolic, digestive and/or hormonal imbalances.

While weight loss is not always the primary goal of Nutritional Therapy, it is often a result seen in clients as their foundational imbalances are corrected. 

Yes! We work around your needs.  Food allergies are often a result of a damaged gut and eating the same things over and over.  As healing progresses you may find you can tolerate foods you used to avoid. 

Healing starts with one bite at a time and the best way to know with what you are fueling your body is to grow and prepare the food yourself.
