What is Nutritional Therapy?
Many people are living with bothersome health complaints that they just accept as normal, but really... they aren’t normal. Discomforts such as acid reflux, gas, bloating, food sensitivities, allergies, skin rashes, cramping, PMS, fatigue, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, bad moods, etc. can all be reduced, if not eliminated, with Nutritional Therapy. These discomforts are generally the result of nutritional deficiencies that come from poor digestion, the standard American diet, and genetics.
Health complaints are a result of deficiencies in the 7 basic ‘pillars of health.’ These pillars of health are the foundation upon which your well-being, happiness, and sense of health are based. When one or more of these pillars are deficient, the foundation begins to weaken and health issues begin to arise. Health issues are the body’s way of calling out for help.
So what are these pillars? The body’s foundation of health relies on: digestion, blood sugar stability, liver function, endocrine balance, vitamin and nutrient sufficiency, mineral balance, and hydration. All food and supplement recommendations are based around these basic building blocks to health.
Clients are able to resolve health complaints by building up and restoring the pillars of health. Many clients find that after just a few months of Nutritional Therapy, they feel better than they have in a long time. Some feel better than they can ever remember.
The beauty of Nutritional Therapy is that it works to resolve health complaints by building up a person’s health and by replenishing missing nutrients, rather than by blocking functions or killing off things in the body. This replenishment allows people to enjoy life with a greater sense of health, happiness and vibrancy. And that is the goal of Nutritional Therapy: to help people realize the greatest sense of themselves.
