Nutritional Therapist | Pharmacist
WHAT ARE THE MEANS USED BY A NUTRITIONAL THERAPIST?
In order to provide the cells with what they need to function optimally, the nutritional therapist uses:
Nutrition : a healthy and nutritionally dense diet.
Nutritional supplements (vitamins, minerals, trace elements, essential fatty acids, probiotics, amino acids, phyto-nutrients) according to 3 levels of intervention: nutritional doses, deficit correction doses or pharmacological doses.
Suggestions for complementary approaches (toxic load reduction, breathing techniques, stress management, physical activity, osteopathy, coaching, etc.) in collaboration with other practitioners.
WHO IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY FOR?
Nutritherapy is for people (adults and children) who want to:
Supplement the increase of their micronutrient needs in certain situations (growth in children, pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause, taking certain medications, hormonal contraception, smoking, stress, air pollution, return from long-term hospitalization, aging , etc.).
Maintain their health and optimal energy over the long term.
Restore the self-healing capacities of their body for the management of their health problems, such as: weak immunity, digestive problems, food intolerance, anxiety disorders, depression, chronic stress, burnout, hormonal imbalances, certain fertility disorders, ENT disorders, inflammatory pathologies, weight gain, migraines, muscular pains, cardiovascular pathologies, metabolic syndrome, premature aging, degenerative diseases, etc.
ARE NUTRITIONAL THERAPY AND ALLOPATHIC MEDICINE OPPOSED?
Nutritherapy is not an alternative medicine, it does not oppose or replace conventional medicine. Nutritional therapy is based on precise knowledge of the biochemical processes of the human body and is supported by numerous published and validated scientific studies. It is therefore integrated into the preventive and therapeutic protocols of allopathic medicine by supporting the body in its self-healing process and compensating for the anti-nutritional effects of drugs. The nutritional therapist does not establish any medical diagnosis and respects the treatments prescribed by the attending physician with whom he collaborates.
