WHY FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION ?
Heal from the inside out
Functional Nutritional Therapy is bio-individualized, supporting each unique person and their body to achieve balance and improved health through nutrition and lifestyle.
A Functional Nutritional Therapist uses an in-depth health history, a detailed signs and symptoms questionnaire, a food and mood journal and a hands-on functional evaluation to work out each client’s unique nutritional status, creating a targeted program just for them.
Nutritional Therapy is also functional, meaning it looks at the systems in someone’s body as a whole rather than at individual health challenges such as weight, hormones or immunity.
Functional Nutritional Therapy is therefore able to provide deeper support for each client compared to conventional methods that tend to be used by dietetics and nutritionists.
The results are powerful.
As a Functional Health Practitioner, Judith utilizes Functional Lab Testing to understand her client’s current state of dysfunction and to then present them with individualized healing opportunities
A program is then developed that helps support your own bodies ability for healing and address dysfunction in areas such as:
Adrenal & HPA Axis Dysregulation
Digestion & Dysbiosis
Nutritional Imbalances and Deficiencies and more
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL BLOOD CHEMISTRY?
Functional blood chemistry is not only the gold standard assessment tool for identifying clinical conditions and dysfunctions in functional or integrative medicine, but in terms of nutrition, it uses science to determine nutritional imbalances so they can be addressed before they develop into chronic health conditions.
In other words, Functional Blood Chemistry is a powerful screening and preventative health tool.
HOW DOES FUNCTIONAL BlOOD TESTING DIFFER FROM OTHER TESTING ?
The tests chosen paint a picture of dysfunction across every system in your body, revealing the causes and links from one area of someone’s health to another.
It’s not about treating symptoms or diseases,
It is about determining what you have control over so you can live your life with the vitality and health you deserve.
We live in a culture, where people are conditioned to expect aches and pains in life, so when you feel chronically tired, your stress levels are high, or your knees start to hurt, you think that’s just the way it is going to be.
The truth is that you don’t have to settle for feeling tired, run down, or overwhelmed, and you don’t have to settle for feeling average.
For each of us there is a "best" that we can feel, and we want to help find a better you to experience life as it should be.
