Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners are trained in nutritional counseling from a holistic, whole food, nutrient dense diet perspective. They view each client as a unique bio-individual, needing a specific plan to optimize their own health, not a cookie-cutter or “one way of eating fits all” approach.
The fundamental goal of Nutritional Therapy is to encourage people to become knowledgeable about—and responsible for—their own health.
An FNTP helps individuals reach their optimal level of overall health by supporting and bringing balance to the five foundations of digestion, blood sugar regulation, fatty acid balance, mineral balance and hydration.
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.
