As a Nutritional Therapist, we are here to guide our clients to better health. We know that having compliancy and lasting results is more than just knowing what to do, but having the kind of mindset to do it over and over for a lifestyle change. Often clients are coming you for a big change in their lives and their health. With the right mindset, change can be easier and truly be life altering. NTPS/NTCS are not psychologists and you should each know where your expertise ends and a referral out to a qualified mental professional begins. Though, with that said; we are the client's nutritional and wellness advocates and with that we do need to work on a mindset shift. Often a clien't subconscious programing has taught them that sugar is something to put on a pedistal, that eating healthy is a diet and that feeling great comes with a hefty price of strictness and restriction. I know a lot of NTPS/NTCS do not want to hold their client's hands and walk them through the mental shift that needs to take place. Though, remember that often teaching your clients new nutritional habits will last if they see eating healthy as a privellage and feel gratefu for every healthy bite vs. feeling deprived and missing their best friend (the junk food) when times get tough. Also, the mindset of learning to relax, meditate consistently, feeling calmer mentally absolutely has an affect on blood sugar, cortisol and the adrenals. It is very important for our clients to have a mindset that is not complaining and very negative because this of course causes the body to move into a sympathetic dominant state where digestion slows, healing can slow and progress can take a back seat.

Diets don't work for a good reason. They cause people misery. Often clients call NTPS/NTCS with the begrudging idea that they will be miserable, restricted and feeling like they are missing out while evreyone around them is happy. If the NTP/NTCS can look this client in the eyes and let them know that the media tricks us into thinking junk food and negative health behaviors are something to be missed and we can show them how fun and enjoyable eating clean food is, well then I believe we have won bigger in our jobs than we will ever know.
This program will give you some tools to help the clients be as grateful for their health as possible.
Coming soon...stay tuned.
