Nutritional Therapists address nutrition from a holistic science based perspective and trust the body’s innate ability to heal itself, if properly nourished. We believe in the importance of properly prepared, nutrient-dense wholefoods that taste delicious, nourish our bodies, and restore balance. There is no one diet that fits everyone. Nutritional Therapists assess the body’s current state of health and help each client find the right wholefoods to restore balance and enhance their ability to heal. Our work is not about counting calories, weighing food, recommending processed food or “dieting”.
We honor the wisdom our great-grandmothers demonstrated by sourcing local and seasonal food, preparing it according to traditional methods, and taking the time to enjoy food in a relaxed and social atmosphere. We believe in cutting-edge nutritional research and regard Dr. Weston A. Price and Dr. Francis A. Pottenger as two of the greatest scientific minds ever to research food and its effects in modern society.
Functional medicine doctors appreciate the importance of proper diet and nutritional supplementation. However, it is often very difficult for them to conduct the proper evaluation and provide the dietary counseling necessary to support optimal healing. Nutritional Therapists are trained to work alongside these practitioners to support the doctors’ diagnoses and recommendations for therapy.
Viva Nutritional Therapy specializes in working to recognize the root causes of the body’s nutritional deficiencies through specific science based techniques. We don’t mask the issues with prescriptions or fad diets. The symptoms are addressed through personalized diet and lifestyle changes, recognizing the bio-individuality of each person, and then creating a unique customized solution to restore your optimal health.
We work together to design a program that works for you, with your input and based on your individual lifestyle. This support is a fully integrative approach to wellness, addressing all aspects of health and lifestyle, while offering a supportive environment as we collaborate for well-being and transformation to help achieve your health goals.
