WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
Nutritional therapy is part of the growing field of alternative medicine. Like acupuncture, naturopathy, chiropractic, and biofeedback, it is holistic in nature. "Holistic" means that the whole body is acknowledged while supporting the strengths and strengthening the weaknesses rather than just treating symptoms.
Nutritional therapy is a method of bringing the body back to OPTIMAL HEALTH using protocols developed from the research of Dr. Royal Lee, Dr. Weston A. Price, Dr. Frances M. Pottenger and many other great pioneer thinkers and practitioners of the last century. Nutritional Therapy is based on scientific research showing that disease is the result of nutritional deficiencies and toxicities that have been allowed to persist over time. It also honors and utilizes the body's innate intelligence and ability to heal itself when given the appropriate tools (nutrients) to do so.

Another aspect of Nutritional Therapy is education. While most people are very smart, they are more than likely misinformed and misdirected when it comes to understanding what a “healthy” diet is and how the body heals. And so,
in the words of Dr. Weston Price, we teach, we teach, we teach.
