A nutrition therapist meets with clients to make diet and exercise recommendations for their health, tailoring these recommendations to the specific needs of client's situation. This is a form of complementary and alternative medicine, focusing on the use of diet to improve health.
As a Nutrition therapist, I believe everyone has unique dietary needs, making it necessary to tailor a diet to them as an individual, rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach. I also believe many health issues can be traced back to dietary problems, and we can use diet as preventative medicine to prevent illness, as well as offering treatments to help people address ongoing health problems.
When I meet with a client, we will discuss why the client is seeking help. I will ask a series of questions to collect information about medical history, documented issues, and the client's current dietary and lifestyle habits. I can then make recommendations for adjustments in the client’s lifestyle including but not restricted to diet and exercise.
In follow up appointments, we can discuss how the client feels and adjust the recommendations. These can include adding new foods, taking out foods that are not working or adjusting quantities. It may also include working with the client on developing or changing an exercise plan and incorporating therapeutic massage. I help the client make a lifestyle transformation by developing the areas of opportunity found in the building blocks of faith, strength, health, motivation, and passion. I may also work with other care providers to make sure the client's needs are met.
