“Nutritional Therapy is an evidence-based approach to maximizing one’s health potential though individually formulated nutritional and lifestyle changes. It promotes the benefits of good, wholesome, unprocessed foods for optimal well being, as well as the therapeutic effects of particular foods for specific health conditions.
Nutritional Therapy treats the body as a whole while seeking the root source of health concerns, rather than simply treating the symptoms. (This makes it a compatible, sister practice to functional, integrative health approaches). It works on the basis that we are each individual in our make-up and therefore, ‘one size fits all’ models of eating (often based on outdated research) simply don’t work well for a lot of people.”

While nutrition therapy helps a wide range of health conditions (heart disease, autoimmune disease, medical weight loss, infertility, hormonal imbalance and Alzheimer’s disease to name just a few) Mary Kay Irving and Boulder Center for Health and Nutrition specialize in working with 3 primary health conditions, which may or may not overlap.
1. Mental health including depression, anxiety, trauma and recovery from alcohol abuse.
2. Blood sugar related illness and concerns including pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, weight loss and metabolic syndrome.
3. Cancer recovery and prevention.
