Nutritional therapyWork with me to nourish yourself well
What is nutritional therapy?
Everything that passes our lips has an impact on our body.
We are a collection of atoms, that makes a collection of cells, tissues, organs, systems and ultimately a living organsim. To nourish ourselves at a cellular level we must consume a range of naturally occuring chemicals that allow our body to perform its millions of complex functions. More about why nutrition affects every single cell.
The delicate balance of nutrients in our body can easily become disrupted. Often imbalances don’t cause too many problems, but sometimes they can manifest in severe ways. Nutrient imbalances affect every facet of our being: energy, mental health, sleep, fitness, weight, immunity, gut health, skin and anything else that your body does. Nutritional therapy is about identifying potential imbalances and using food to correct these.
Imagine if you could improve a condition you had been dealing with for years, just by changing a few things in your diet.
Modern medicine is very efficient at alleviating the symptoms of disease. But in order to address the underlying reason for dysfunction, we need to address the foundations of health.
NTA Nutritional Therapists aim to reconnect people with their bodies, empowering them with the knowledge they need to aid recovery or prevent disease.

What is an NTP?
A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner™ (NTP) is a paraprofessional certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc.®, trained to evaluate a client’s nutritional needs, support normal function, and identify nutritional deficiencies.
An NTP is not trained to provide medical diagnosis, to prescribe or treat any medical or pathological condition, illness, injury or disease, and is not a replacement for a medical doctor.
Rather, NTPs direct their clients on a path of discovery to the underlying issues affecting their health, empowering them with knowledge and showing them how to make the changes themselves. They are trained to work alongside licensed practitioners to support a doctor’s diagnosis and other therapies.
Using non-invasive evaluative techniques, the intention is to identify what will nourish the body and help it to find equilibrium.
