NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

The fundamental goal of The Nourished Gut is to encourage people to become knowledgeable about—and responsible for —their own health, particularly when it pertains to autoimmune disease. As an NTP, Sarah Wojtas of The Nourished Gut helps individuals reach their optimal level of overall health by supporting and bringing balance to the five foundations outlined by the Nutritional Therapy Association listed below. All five are built upon a single, solid base: a properly prepared, nutrient-dense diet.

  • Digestion
  • Blood sugar balance
  • Fatty acids
  • Mineral balance
  • Hydration

By supporting each of these foundations and helping clients adopt a more nutrient-dense diet, the body’s chemistry can be brought back into natural balance, setting the stage for optimal autoimmune wellness. Nutritional Therapy is not designed, however, to treat any specific disease or medical condition. Sarah Wojtas, NTP is trained to evaluate nutritional needs, make recommendations of dietary change, nutritional supplementation, and life style modification. Sarah Wojtas, NTP is not trained to provide medical diagnoses or prescriptions. No comment or recommendation should be construed as a medical diagnosis or prescription.

Every human being is unique on a biochemical level, therefore The Nourished Gut cannot guarantee any specific result from our programs. If you suffer from a medical condition, you need to consult with an appropriate healthcare provider. Seeking care from The Nourished Gut is not a substitute for your family physician or other appropriate healthcare provider. Sarah Wojtas, NTP is not trained nor licensed to diagnose or treat pathological conditions, illnesses, injuries, or diseases
or prescribe medications.

COMMUNICATION

If you are under the care of another healthcare provider, it is important that you contact your other healthcare providers and alert them to your use of nutritional supplements. Nutritional Therapy may be a beneficial adjunct to more traditional care, and it may also alter your need for medication, so it is important you always keep your physician informed of changes in your nutritional program.

If you are using medications of any kind, you are required to alert The Nourished Gut to such use, as well as to discuss any potential interactions between medications and nutritional products with your pharmacist. If you have any physical or emotional reaction to Nutritional Therapy, discontinue their use immediately, and contact The Nourished Gut to ascertain if the reaction is adverse or an indication of the natural course of the body’s adjustment to the therapy.

Every client is a biochemical individual, and it is not possible to determine in advance how your body will react to the nutrients or supplements you need. It is sometimes necessary to adjust your program as we proceed until your body can begin to properly accept targeted nutrients geared to correct imbalances or deficiencies. It is your responsibility to do your part by:

  • Following guidelines provided by The Nourished Gut
  • Avoiding harmful foods, substances, and behaviors.
  • Prioritizing sleep, rest, and relaxation.
  • Staying in contact with The Nourished
  • Gut so we can stay abreast of your progress

If your other healthcare providers have any questions regarding Nutritional Therapy, they are free to contact The Nourished Gut by phone (603)-508-1091 or email (sarah@nourishedgut.org).
