Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
Functional nutritional therapy is a whole-body approach to understanding health and well-being that can be applied to many different illnesses. With every client I focus on an individual’s unique genetic, biochemical, and nutritional status, customized treatment plans can be implemented to get to the root cause of your health issues. The GAPS program focuses on gut-related diseases in children and adults: specifically, Autism, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Depression, Dyspraxia, OCD, and other diseases whose origins are gut-related.
Almost every condition can benefit from functional nutritional therapy, including but not limited to:
IBS/IBD and all digestive symptoms like gas, bloating, and constipation
Heart disease and high blood pressure
Pre-diabetes and diabetes
Autoimmune conditions (multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, hashimotos)
Mental imbalances (depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders, mood disorders)
Food intolerances, allergies
Hormone balancing, PMS, menopause
Inflammation, arthritis, joint pain
Initial Nutritional Consultation
During our first visit, we will discuss your current and past health, your family medical history and your goals. Your initial visit will be approximately 1 hour. A protocol will be designed specifically for you according to your unique needs. Often times due to the client’s desire for more comprehensive guidelines, a second 30-60 minutes appointment may be scheduled within one week of the initial appointment. At the second visit, we will discuss in greater detail dietary and lifestyle recommendations, suggested nutritional supplementation.
