A quick note from the Nutritional Therapy Association

Nutritional Therapy identifies the root causes of deficiencies or imbalances that may be making you sick or keeping you from optimal health, nutritional therapies improve the assimilation of the nutrients you consume, which enables your body to reverse or delay chronic illness.

As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I will work with you one on one to help find nutritional deficiencies. From the tools that I have, I will make nutritional recommendations based on your bio-individuality to promote balance and optimal wellness. NTP’s do not diagnose disease but I will work along with you and your practitioner to help you be the healthiest you yet.

The solution is always about improving the nutrient quality of our food, improving digestion, detoxing appropriately addressing stress in our life. Some people believe that health comes from going to a doctor, from surgery, and as a result of pharmaceutical medications but health does not really come from those ways. I believe the way we are treating chronic disease in this country is all wrong; if we bring in nutrients and repair the deficiencies, the body heals itself!

Health comes from addressing our body’s bio-individually and understanding what it needs to thrive, prevent, and reverse illness. We are what we eat or, really, what we digest. If we eat dehydrated, void of nutrient foods, we look and feel dehydrated, sickly and void of nutrients.

We take baby steps and that is one of the ways I can help. I make it doable for your lifestyle.
