My name is John and I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) having graduated with the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA), I have completed the Inneractive Healing Systems – Art of Muscle Testing training programme and I also have a BSc (Hons) in Applied Biology.
Having spent over 20 years working with soil and plant nutrition in Agriculture it became a logical step to see how it affected the body.
The NTA training programme focuses on the foundation of optimal health – Digestion, Blood Sugar Regulation, Fatty Acids, Minerals and Hydration with a grounding in anatomy, physiology and the biochemistry of nutrition leading to the paradigm of eating a whole food, properly prepared, nutrient dense diet.
The uniqueness of the NTA course is based on the bio-individual clinical assessment which forms the basis of the tailored health programme I will create with you. The evaluation highlights any imbalances within the body and specifically what is required to return it back to balance.
This is the key area for me, not prescribing pre-determined diets and food but nutrients and supplements that are specifically identified by the innate knowledge of your body.
This clinical assessment is a powerful tool in creating a unique bio-individual approach to help you achieve optimal health in the shortest space of time.
Nutritional Therapy Practitioners work on a bio-individual human physiology and function basis everyday – as we are all different. Two clients may have the same symptoms but the actual cause can be totally different, hence the one size doesn’t fit all approach.
Many people wonder what nutrition has to do with your current health concerns, here’s a simple explanation. It is all based on a cellular level. We have trillions of cells and they all need nutrients to function – therefore they can only function as well as the nutrients they receive. Some nutrients may be deficient due to the diet or increasingly some foods can be damaging at a cellular level e.g. trans fats which damage cell membranes. Our role is to assist you to re-establish cellular health, correct any dysfunction and return you to optimal health.
