What is Nutritional Therapy

  • Do you have a chronic health condition, autoimmune or otherwise, that is slowing you down?
  • Do you have chronic pain and / fatigue?
  • Do you suffer from digestive problems like acid reflux, bloating and / constipation?
  • Do you want to shed a few pounds and look and feel younger?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then nutritional therapy has the potential to help you.

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional therapy is holistic, evidence based, comprehensive and personalized approach to health and healing. A nutritional therapist uses specific tools and relies on the body’s innate intelligence for assessing nutritional deficiencies and addresses those weaknesses through a nutrient dense, whole foods diet, natural supplements and lifestyle changes.

Nutritional therapy is highly successful in reversing many chronic conditions including diabetes, digestive disorders and autoimmune diseases.

What can I expect in a consulting session?

You will be asked to provide your detailed health history and a 3 day food journal. Then a comprehensive questionnaire will be administered to you to evaluate your nutritional deficiencies and weaknesses. Based on the information gathered from all the above, the nutritional therapist can create a symptom burden graph (like the one shown in the pic below) and assess what key areas you need support with. Based on this, they can provide you with a detailed diet, supplement and lifestyle recommendations aimed at improving your foundations of digestion, fatty acids, blood sugar balance, mineral balance and hydration.

Symptom Burden Graph

As a Nutritional therapist (NTC) trained by the Nutritional Therapy Association , I have expertise in treating digestive disorders and autoimmune diseases. I have healed my own self from the disability and pain of rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune condition. I understand what it means to live with chronic pain. When medications alone did not work for me, I looked to healing myself naturally – with diet, supplements and lifestyle changes. Now with all those changes, I have been able to reduce the dose of my medications and more importantly, I have been able to lead a close to normal life pursuing my passions.

If one-on-one coaching is not for you but you still want support in transitioning to a healing diet, then you may want to consider group coaching. I periodically offer group programs. Follow me on social media to learn about them.

If you have an autoimmune disease and want to start the AIP diet, then there is another group program the ‘ SAD to AIP in Six’ program facilitated by one of my mentors, Angie Alt.
