As a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner I address the foundations which include digestion, blood sugar, minerals, fatty acids and hydration. Whole Nutrient dense Foods and supplements are utilized to bring the body chemistry into balance and achieve optimal wellness. I integrate a blend of whole nutrient dense foods to support nutritional imbalances with specifically designed supplementation to provide key nutrients to all the needed physiological foundations. This will restore deficiencies and reinforce the clientâ€™s ability to heal and to remove anything that impedes the body moving toward its best functioning. I Investigate why a client is actually having the chronic symptoms. Through an initial interview, a Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire (NAQ) and a Food Journal we will get a total picture of how to create a protocol that will help you reach optimal health.
I utilize a variety of expanded testing procedures to assess the underlying cause of the dysfunction through blood chemistries, saliva and stool testing including: male/female hormone testing, Gastrointestinal testing, adrenal testing as well as Food sensitivity testing or Mediator response testing (MRT). If you are suffering from common digestive complaints such as constipation, diarrhea, IBS, Crohnâ€™s, bloating, gas, heart burn or reflux, cramping. If you are suffering from anxiety, depression, eczema, autism, dyslexia, ADHD or ADD? Are you wondering if theyâ€™re connected or what the root cause of these problems are?
As a Certified GAPS Practitioner (GUT and Psychology Syndrome) I will guide you through the GAPS Nutritional Protocol developed by the research and healing modality of Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride. I will help navigate you through this amazing therapy that uses specific foods to heal and seal your gut repopulate the intestinal tract with the probiotic bacteria. This modality works very well in people with â€œleaky gut syndromeâ€ and all the consequent physical and psychological conditions such as those listed below.Â Â Many things can cause damage to our intestinal lining from antibiotics, over the counter drugs, consuming processed foods high in sugar, consuming the wrong kind of fats and foods containing genetically modified organisms, as well as being exposed to high levels of environmental toxins. The GAPS diet heals the lining of our intestines by removing foods that cause inflammation and feed the opportunistic bad bacteria, yeast, pathogens, parasites.
