What is Nutritional Therapy?

Did you know that less than 15% of physician visits include any nutritional counseling? (source) With more chronic disease and ailments originating from nutritional deficiencies than ever before, our healthcare climate is in dire need of an alternative solution. That’s where Nutritional Therapy comes into play.

Nutritional Therapy centers on the idea that real health can be achieved through a holistic and bio-individual approach to nutrition and lifestyle. We believe that many of modern society’s health problems result from weaknesses in the body’s physiological foundations brought on by poor nutrition.

Whole-Body Approach

Nutritional Therapy views the body as a whole functioning being, with all elements of a individual well-being interacting with another. Together, we’ll dive into the foundations of nutrition of Nutritional Therapy to bring support to imbalances and optimize nutrition. We’ll look at digestion, blood sugar regulation, fatty acids, mineral balance, hydration, stress, sleep, and movement. Collaboratively, we’ll focus on areas that may be out of balance and work to connect them back to your presenting symptoms. I believe in the body’s innate intelligence to heal and find balance with the right nutrients.

Food First

Here we’ll talk about using food to build health from the inside out. As a NTP, food is my favorite tool in my toolbox because what we eat impacts our body on a cellular level. Cool right? The nutrients in our food play key roles to bodily functions. Just as we wouldn’t put the lowest quality of gas into our car knowing it would damage the engine, we wouldn’t put low quality food into our body. Food is fuel, but it is also so much more. When broken down, nutrients provide energy, structure, and function. The very chemicals we need to build and sustain cell, tissue, and organ function are found in the food we eat. But food also goes beyond physical health, it also fuels connection and enriches our cultures, supporting our social and emotional health in profound ways.

Healthy Meal


There is never a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to health and wellness. You are a wonderfully unique bio-individual and what’s optimal for you isn’t necessarily optimal for someone else.  This ensures that recommendations are personal, impactful, and realistic for you regardless of where you are on your health journey. Together, let’s learn about the beauty of bio-individuality and what it feels like to feel your absolute best.
