What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy Practitioners are integral members of the holistic health community. We believe a properly prepared, nutrient dense whole food diet sets the ultimate foundation for optimal health and healing. We work to find areas of deficiency or imbalance in the body, and correct them. We find these deficiencies through a thorough assessment including a functional evaluation. We address these weaknesses through dietary and lifestyle changes, as well as supplement recommendations.

Many medical Doctor's do not link disease with diet so people find they have to seek help elsewhere. For example, an individual who is always fatigued may get a diagnosis like chronic fatigue or depression, and get treated with medications to help control the issue. Nutritional Therapists focus on the link between health and nutrition, with an emphasis on identifying the root cause of a health problem, rather than trying to keep symptoms at bay or suppress the condition. For example, fatigue may be because of unstable blood sugar, or a thyroid issues. Once the root cause is identified, nutritional therapists help come up with a nutritional plan that may include supplement recommendations to help fix underlying cause of the symptoms.

The payoff of hiring a Nutritional Therapist is that you will have the tools necessary to heal your digestion, balance your blood sugar and hormones, increase your energy, increase your self awareness, decrease inflammation, feel younger, stabilize your moods, and the list goes on and on.

As a Nutritional Therapist, Kathryn specializes in autoimmune conditions and healing leaky gut. She works with individuals who are struggling with fatigue, joint pain, irritability, moodiness, frequent hunger, sugar cravings, indigestion/heartburn, other digestive issues such as colitis and constipation, skin problems, food sensitivities, weight gain or inability to lose weight, autoimmune conditions, thyroid issues, and hormonal imbalances.
