What is a Nutritional Therapist?
A Nutritional Therapist is a highly-trained nutrition coach who uses the science of food to support clients in healthy eating. Their training focuses on using food as medicine before supplementing with bottled vitamins and minerals. In addition to teaching food-based medicine, health coaches work along side of clients who desire individualized food and lifestyle plans to meet their unique needs and health goals. In other words, IVY's Nutritional Therapist works as your personal food consultant - customizing meal plans to support both you as an individual and your entire family. How refreshing!
What can integrative nutrition do for you?
Food choices can be an everyday struggle...or joy! A nutritional therapist will take their time to address every detail of your diet to limit the stress of decision-making. From grocery shopping, to meal prepping, to strategizing how-to-handle social gatherings...your health coach is on your side.

What does it look like to work with a Nutritional Therapist?
During your initial appointment, your Nutritional Therapist will unfold your current eating habits and lifestyle. Together, you will set attainable goals.

Your Nutritional Therapist can offer as much or as little guidance as you need including cooking classes, hourly detailed meal plans, grocery shopping guidance, and social gathering strategies.
