Nutrition Therapy is the development, education, and oversight of a custom, results-driven, and sustainable diet and lifestyle program. Individual protocols are created through a detailed assessment of past and current eating habits, lab work, medical history, physician recommendations, health goals/concerns, lifestyle factors, and beyond. The objective is to teach you how real food, and the nutrients that comprise it, can work medicinally in the body while also uncovering and addressing the root cause of your health concern.
Using one of the oldest forms of medicine to help you achieve health – food – in tandem with a targeted supplement, exercise, and lifestyle/stress reduction program, Nutrition Therapy is not only one of the fastest growing branches of complimentary medicine in the U.S., but often the most results-based, economical way of achieving your goals. The Nutrition Therapy services offered at Namaste Health Center focus on three target areas:
1. What is put into the body in terms of food, beverage, supplements, and/or medications, and an assessment of what is absorbed. Here we look at quality, bio- individual needs and whether or not commonly ingested foods are working medicinally or not.
2. What is put onto the body. From body care to household cleaning products, the skin absorbs what is applied to it, therefore considered a “second mouth.” Environmental Medicine is always addressed during our Nutrition Therapy intakes and individual recommendations.
3. What surrounds your body. This can include workplace health, life-related joy or stress, presence of exercise, toxic or supportive relationships and more. Your “external nutritional” or lifestyle plays a massive yet often underestimated role in achieving health.
