Functional Nutritional Therapy is a personalized approach to nutrition that takes into account your bio individuality. It involves listening to each person’s story and respecting their physical, emotional, and spiritual experiences. The goal is to identify the root cause of how you function and make basic recommendations to support your best health through diet and lifestyle.

Lingual Neural testing is used to identify deficiencies in parts of your body, and a balanced plan is built to keep you working and feeling your optimal self. This results in a personalized health assessment and protocol to meet your nutritional needs.

Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners® work with bio-individual human physiology and function every day. The results for health and wellness for our clients are profound. If you are wondering what nutrition has to do with your current health concerns, here’s a simple explanation. It all comes down to cells. When our cells are nutrient deficient, we go on a downward spiral.

The role of a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner is to assist their clients to re-establish cellular health. Part of this is understanding the warning signs and signals our body gives us every day about underlying dysfunction. They are the only Functional and Ancestral based program that assesses the bodies BIO-INDIVIDUALLY.

Karie Ploeger specializes in functional nutrition and uses food as medicine to help families and individuals feel good and thrive. As a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, she is knowledgeable about science-based nutrition and how that translates to your bio individuality. She combines real food (delicious and tailored to you), functional lab tests, and attention to lifestyle to help families and individuals feel good and improve their health.

She works to address each individual’s unique health concerns, such as blood sugar regulation, digestive disorders, improving energy levels, and food allergies and sensitivities. 

Despite all the innovations in the agriculture field, our food chain does not deliver appropriate nutrition. It is important to be aware of the high numbers of foods we eat that are genetically modified or pesticide treated. Additionally, the number of children and adults that suffer from poor nutrition due to lack of information on the subject is incredibly sad. There are simple, small steps we can all take to help change our personal nutritional challenges into triumphs.

Restoring Nutrition can help you learn science-based nutrition and how that translates to your bio-individual self in a practical, applicable way.
