what is nutritional therapy
Instead of trying to re-word what I initially read, and what drew me to Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA) education, I decided to pull direct quotes from their website. (Also click the logos above to learn more about the NTA and RWS). If you get the same “HELL YES” gut reaction I had when reading this, you’re in the right place!
"We believe that many of modern society’s health problems result from weaknesses in the body’s physiological foundations brought on by poor nutrition. We are dedicated to helping healthcare professionals and individuals reverse the negative effects of the modern diet through nutritional therapy.”
“A holistic and individualized approach to nutrition and lifestyle"
“Our foundational, holistic approach focuses on the importance of properly prepared, nutrient-dense, whole foods paired with a well-balanced lifestyle.”
“The NTA teaches the concept of bio-individuality, meaning that a “one size fits all” approach to nutrition does not exist.”
“environmental sustainability, championing sustainable local and organic food production, animal rights, and the environment.”
“Addressing nutrition from a holistic perspective and reconnecting people to healing foods and vibrant health”
how does it work
The fundamental goal of Nutritional Therapy is to encourage people to become knowledgeable about—and responsible for—their own health. An NTP helps individuals reach their optimal level of overall health by supporting and bringing balance to the five foundations listed below. All five are built upon a single, solid base: a properly prepared, nutrient-dense diet.
• Blood Sugar Regulation
• Fatty Acid Balance
• Mineral Balance
By supporting each of these foundations and helping clients adopt a more nutrient-dense diet, the body's chemistry can be brought back into natural balance, setting the stage for optimal health.
