The Number One Question I Get Asked: What Is Nutritional Therapy?

by | Jul 9, 2018 | Health, Nutrition

One of the most common questions I get asked it, “What is nutritional therapy anyway?”

I get it, there are so many holistic methodologies out there, so, what sets nutritional therapy apart and how can it help you?

I’m glad you asked.

“Nutritional therapy can target exact systems in the body, in the exact order, providing answers and precise techniques to relieve the burden where it’s the greatest.”

My philosophy is that the myriad of health problems plaguing modern society result from weaknesses in the body’s physiological foundations brought on by poor nutrition.

Nutritional Therapy Practitioners dig deep to identify the root cause of these symptoms and address underlying imbalances so that the client can thrive.

Nutritional Therapists are trained to work within what we call the “foundations” for optimal health, these foundations consider the following:

  • diet
  • digestion
  • blood sugar regulation
  • essential fatty acid balance
  • mineral balance
  • hydration

We use a comprehensive questionnaire called a Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire. From the results of the NAQ, we are able to graph where the body’s greatest burdens are within the foundations.

Nutritional therapy is:


There is no one-size-fits-all diet for everyone – each of us is unique with highly individualized nutritional requirements.


My practice focuses on: holistic, evidence based, comprehensive and a personalized approach to health and healing.


The Functional Evaluation is a series of points on the human body correlated to the specific organs or systems in the body which are palpated to identify nutritional deficiencies.

Nutritional therapy identifies root causes in the body instead of masking symptoms so you can reclaim WHOLE health.

Nutritional Therapy Practitioners do not diagnose or treat disease, but work to correct imbalances within the body to guide individuals back into a state of optimal health and function.

Other favorites include exercise, a healthy dose of vitamin D, an elderflower collins, my family, and a good dose of spontaneity (hey enneagram 7w8!).

My own struggles and health journey led me to my passion for helping women balance mood, reclaim sleep & chill their adrenals.
