What is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner?

A mouthful, that’s what! Seriously though, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners are holistic health educators who take a functional approach to wellness. FNTPs focus on the foundations of digestion & elimination, blood sugar regulation, fatty acid balance, mineral balance, and hydration. We recognize and address nutritional deficiencies and imbalances and base most suggestions on eating a properly prepared, nutrient-dense whole food diet before considering professional grade supplementation.

Some people thrive eating oatmeal, some don’t. The popular Keto diet isn’t for everyone, neither is caffeine for that matter! Each person on this planet has a unique makeup from genetics and intolerances to preferences and habits. One size never fits all, bio-individuality is key for FNTPs!

I chose to become an FNTP through the Nutritional Therapy Association and it was the best decision I have ever made. You know, husband and kids aside. When I saw the assigned reading for the program, I knew it was where I was meant to be, I already owned many of the books!

Working with an FNTP means offering more information than your doctor asks for, from things you ate growing up to how you react to aspirin. To us, it all matters. We begin with your top health concerns and offer solutions to help you start feeling the way you were meant to, full of life!
