Natural Cures Tuesday is Pleased to Introduce
More and more, I am meeting whole foodies who are wanting to study nutrition, and become nutrition counselors to help others learn a healthier, more nourishing eating style. Recently, I learned of a profession that I had never heard of, nutritional therapist or Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.
A community of over 200 Nutritional Therapy Practitioners (graduates of NTAO who follow the Weston Price and Price Pottenger nutritional philosophy have launched a new website. The site is www.ntptalk.com. It is full of nutrition articles and recipes written by nutritional therapists.
They want to develop a marketplace online of WAP inspired resources for our clients and visitors.
These nutritional therapists love raw milk, cheese, meat and cultured foods etc. and recommend it to their clients. The marketplace will be where they will be coming to find resources.
What is a nutritional therapist?
NTPs practice a foundational approach to holistic nutrition that utilizes a unique set of tools for identifying individual nutritional deficiencies. Imbalances are addressed through diet, nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes tailored for your biochemical individuality.
They are guided by:
* A profound respect for the teachings of the nutritional pioneers; pioneering greats such as Dr. Weston A. Price and Dr. Francis A. Pottenger, two of the greatest scientific minds ever to research nutrition, food and its effects on modern society.
* A commitment to the concept of biochemical individuality. Our genetic and geographical makeup can determine our unique nutritional needs.
* The belief that within each of us lies an innate intelligence that guides us.
Sally Fallon Morell was the keynote speaker at their conference last year.
Beverly Hartsfield, head of the Nutritional Therapists Alumni Association was a Weston Price member for many years before becoming a nutritional therapist. She established a discussion board amongst the NTP’s so they could stay in a tight community and keep learning and growing in their field. On the board they share information about their cases, clinical practices.
NTP Talk is adding a public site to their online discussion, so that they can educate the world about their unique paradigm on nutritional health with whole foods. On NTP you will find articles written by nutritionists, recipes, a marketplace of vendors, instructional videos, and recommended links.
On their list of NTP Talk authors, I spotted Charles Welling, who is a frequent commenter on this blog.
Here is a link to their new site, definitely one you will want to book mark!
Now the Carnival Begins!
