One of the questions I get asked most often is what is the difference between a nutritionist, a dietitian and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner? Aren't they all the same thing?
NUTRITIONAL THERAPY PRACTITIONER (NTP)
An NTP is certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association. NTP’s draw on a holistic approach to healing, which considers the whole person – body, mind and spirit. They recognize that disease is complex so they focus on the concept of bio-individuality: where every individual has a specific genetic, ancestral and
geographic makeup that determines their own unique nutritional needs. Many nutrition programs fail because they take a “one size fits all” approach that ignores bio-individuality.
NTP’s usually work in private practice. In my practice, I perform a comprehensive assessment, which includes an Initial Interview, Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire (300+ detailed symptom questions), a Food Journal and a Functional Evaluation (FE). The FE consists of lingual-neuro, muscle, reflex and energetic testing in order to further assess your biochemical needs and make appropriate, personalized diet and lifestyle recommendations.
This can be anyone that studies and/or claims to be an expert in the field of nutrition. It is not as regulated and tends to have a broader, more general meaning.
A regulated healthcare professional licensed to assess, diagnose, and treat nutritional problems. They usually work in a hospital setting and may have a more western-medicine vs. holistic view on health. Dietitians are an excellent resource.
WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
FROM MY CLIENTS
“Before seeing Nichole, I was unsure how to manage my newly diagnosed digestive issues. I had gone to several doctors, but they each suggested taking prescription medication...When I met with Nichole, she spent more time with me than any doctor I’ve seen. She offered suggestions and alternatives for me to try. In each subsequent session, she has listened and made any adjustments that I may need.
The result? I no longer have to take the prescribed medication and I’m able to manage my stomach issues with natural and holistic methods...Now, I’ve regained my confidence and I’m more in tune with my body than I have been in years. I’m so grateful I was referred to her!”
