In a world where nutritional therapy is often misunderstood as mere meal planning or a weight loss program, we invite you to explore a different perspective. At The New School of Nutritional Medicine, our approach to nutritional therapy goes far beyond conventional norms. It's about delving deep into the intricacies of each individual's well-being, addressing root causes, and nurturing true health.
Understanding Nutritional Therapy
Nutritional therapy is not just about signing up for a short online course; it's about becoming a 21st-century practitioner who excels in personalizing nutritional plans for clients. It's about going beyond the surface, beyond the "pill for an ill" mentality that sometimes pervades modern healthcare. Let's delve into this with a real-life case study.
A Case of Infertility: A Deeper Dive
Meet Amina, a 33-year-old woman who's been struggling with infertility for two years. Her story is not just about infertility; it's about a myriad of symptoms that have been affecting her life:
Unwanted hair growth on her face and breasts
Low energy levels
Frequent need to eat to avoid feeling jittery
Occasional acid reflux
Amina's journey is a perfect example of why we emphasize looking at the individual, not just their diagnosis. It's about understanding her unique symptoms, her history, and her life as a whole.
Going Beyond Symptoms: The Birth Control Pill
Amina had been on birth control pills for eight years to manage her acne, but when she stopped, her acne returned, and she gained weight. While well-intentioned friends offered advice like going gluten-free or pursuing IVF, we took a different approach.
Taking The Timeline: Understanding the Whole Picture
We took a comprehensive case history, exploring various aspects of her life. We asked about her diet, daily routine, living environment, and more. The pieces started to fit together, revealing a bigger picture. Amina's symptoms weren't isolated; they were interconnected.
It's More Than Hormones: Exploring the Root Causes
Instead of merely focusing on hormones, we looked upstream. Amina's cold hands and feet hinted at potential issues with iron, B12, or folate levels, impacting her energy. We realized that she wasn't getting enough protein and fat in her diet.
Personalized Nutrition and Supplements
After gathering sufficient information, we personalized Amina's nutrition plan and recommended supplements. Research showed that the birth control pill depleted several essential nutrients, and we made sure her plan included foods rich in these nutrients.
Results that Speak Volumes
A few months later, Amina's life took a turn for the better. She lost weight, her energy improved, acid reflux vanished, and her cramps became more manageable. A thorough analysis of her Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) results led to further adjustments, enhancing her overall well-being.
A Journey to Motherhood
Three months down the line, Amina received the news she'd been longing for—she was pregnant. Nine months later, she welcomed a healthy baby into the world. This isn't just a success story; it's a testament to the power of holistic nutritional therapy.
Beyond Meal Plans: The Essence of Nutritional Therapy
At The New School of Nutritional Medicine, we want you to understand that we don't simply provide meal plans or focus on weight loss. Our mission is to grasp the uniqueness of each client and the complexities of their biological systems. This might involve functional tests, but more importantly, it involves a deep commitment to understanding and supporting our clients on their journey to wellness.
A Syllabus for the Future
In addition to life coaching skills, our syllabus integrates specific functional tests that are essential for 21st-century practitioners. Our nutrition diploma course is designed to be fun, relevant, rigorous, and practical—an inspiring journey towards holistic health.
