Nutrition

What is nutrition therapy?

Naturopathic nutrition, or nutrition therapy, is a type of nutritional counseling that uses a holistic approach to make dietary changes that support the requirements of all the systems of the body. Nutrition therapy promotes overall health and wellness; it can also address a wide range of health concerns.

Which health conditions can benefit from nutrition therapy?

According to the World Health Organization, nutrition can help to improve a variety of medical conditions, including:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Osteoporosis and other bone diseases
  • Dental diseases


Proper nutrition also has a positive effect on your concentration, mood, energy levels, and sexual and emotional health. It can improve your response to stress triggers, your sleep, your energy, and the way you feel about yourself and your body.

What is involved in nutritional therapy?

When you visit Origins Naturopathic for nutrition services, your experienced provider begins by performing a comprehensive evaluation. This includes a physical exam, a review of your health history, and an assessment of your overall mental and physical wellness. They may also ask you to keep a food diary to gain a deeper understanding of your dietary habits and your intake of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

Once your evaluation is complete, your provider designs a nutrition plan tailored to meet your individual needs. Your plan includes specific recommendations for integrating organic and whole foods options into your daily diet. They may also recommend exercise programs to help you stay active and energized.

In addition to nutritional changes, your provider may recommend:

Mind-body medicine

Breathing exercises, guided meditation, and other techniques can reduce stress, promote emotional balance, and support your overall health. 

Physical medicine

Physical medicine treatments like myofascial release, visceral manipulation, or craniosacral therapy relieve pain, reduce tension, and create more physical ease.

Herbal medicine

Herbal remedies help to calm your nervous system, improve brain function, and help your body utilize available nutrients from your diet.

If you’re struggling with chronic health issues or you’d like to improve your health and sense of wellbeing, nutritional therapy may be right for you.
