Let Food Be Thy Medicine
Hello, I'm Tiffany!
Have you been looking for a practitioner that will listen to you about your health goals and concerns? Let me introduce myself.
I'm a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) and a Whole30 Certified Coach based in Southlake, Texas, and I'd love to work with you. Not in Texas?
Don't worry, I help people throughout the US!
As an FNTP, I'm a firm believer in a holistic approach to healing. Working with me means you receive individualized assessments completely unique to you and your body, and we'll work together to design nutrition and lifestyle recommendations aimed at helping your body heal from the inside out. There's no standard recommendation or cookie cutter approach. My goal is to identify how to best support you to meet your health goals, and educate you on how to take your health back!
FUNCTIONAL NUTRITIONAL THERAPY PRACTITIONER
What's the difference between a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, a Registered Dietitian, and a Nutritionist?
As an FNTP, I take a holistic approach to healing, and consider the whole person. Body, Mind, and Spirit. I recognize that disease is complex, and focus on bio-individuality: where every individual has a specific genetic, ancestral, and geographic makeup that determines their own unique nutritional needs. Many treatments, programs, and diets fail because they take a "one size fits all" approach, ignoring your bio-individuality.
When you work with me, you receive a comprehensive assessment, including an Initial Intake, a Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire (also referred to as the NAQ - over 300 detailed symptom questions), a Food & Mood Journal, a Functional Evaluation (FE), and a full scope recommendation. The FE is a hands on evaluation allowing me to identify organ and physiological stress. This gives me insight into prioritizing recommendations accordingly with your health concerns and goals. The focus is always aiming to address root cause, and in many cases, improving multiple symptoms through one protocol. The FE allows me to further assess your biochemical needs and make unique food and lifestyle recommendations, just for you.
A regulated healthcare professional licensed to assess, diagnose, and treat nutritional symptoms. An RD typically works in a hospital setting, and may have a more traditional (or western) view of medicine than a holistic approach. Dietitians are an excellent resource.
This can be anyone who claims to be an expert in the field of nutrition. While it is somewhat regulated, state laws very in how an individual can use the term "nutritionist".
