What is Functional Nutritional Therapy?

Well let me give you the technical answer first.

Functional Nutritional Therapy is an evidence-based approach to optimizing one’s health potential through individually formulated nutritional and lifestyle changes.

It promotes the benefits of properly prepared, nutrient dense, whole foods for optimal well being, as well as the therapeutic effects of particular foods for specific health conditions.

Functional Nutritional Therapy treats the body as a whole while seeking the root source of health concerns rather than simply treating the symptoms.

It works on the basis that we are each individual in our make-up and therefore, “one size fits all” models of eating (often based on outdated research) simply don’t work well for a lot of people. (Source)”

Sorry to disappoint.  I’m sure you were hoping Functional Nutritional Therapy was you sitting on a couch telling me all your problems all while I feed you delicious food…..Nope.

In all seriousness.  It is a process that takes an investment in time and an open & honest communication pathway.  The process is usually a life long one but we work together setting the foundation which allows you to fly on your own the rest of the way.
