Belinda is a Nutritional Therapist based in Mackay Queensland. She practices Functional Nutrition and has a passion for getting to the bottom of your health concerns.
With a Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science, she has worked as a Medical Scientist for 15 years in Pathology and since becoming a mother to 2 beautiful children, her passion shifted to nutrition. She realised the food we put into our bodies affects how the body functions and what is healthy for one person is not necessarily good for another. This curiosity of people’s Bio-Individuality led her to complete studies with the Nutritional Therapy Association of America being a part of the inaugural Brisbane 2015 Class.
After being in practice for almost a year, she realised there was something missing – that one can’t address the body without including the mind. So she went on to complete certification as a Theta Healing Practitioner, helping her clients to recognise limiting beliefs and deeply held blocks that sabotage their true potential to reach their goals. Happiness and Health should be a natural state and at Inside Out Nutritional Therapy this is achieved from the inside out.
What is a Nutritional Therapist?
A Nutritional Therapist is an accredited para professional who has been certified to perform Functional Evaluations in order to make nutritional recommendations to balance body chemistry and achieve optimal wellness. (Nutritional Therapy Association, 2018)
Nutritional therapists practice Functional Nutrition and recognise we are all bio-individuals with individual requirements. We help to address functional imbalances in the body that you know as signs and symptoms your body is experiencing. Nutritional therapists believe in supporting wellness by addressing the Foundations of Digestion, Blood Sugar Regulation, Hydration, Essential Fatty Acids and Minerals/ Vitamins. Combining the foundations with a nutrient dense, whole foods, properly prepared diet enables the practitioner to get to the “root cause” of your body’s dysfunction enabling you to move towards creating optimal health.
Nutritional therapists work very well with other practitioners as we realise that in order to achieve whole body wellness the “whole” body needs to be considered.
What is Functional Nutrition?
This is how the foods you eat directly affect how your body functions. Our entire body is made up of cells. These cells come together to form tissues. The tissues come together to form organs. The organs all form part of a system. The systems combined make up our body. The health of our cells directly correlates to the healthy functioning of our body. If we feed our cells on a cellular level the appropriate nutrients then those cells are healthy.
What’s it like to work with a Nutritional Therapist?
Nutritional therapists will listen to you. They spend time talking things through and work with you to create a wellness plan which is achievable and empowering. Your practitioner will use their knowledge to assist you in re-establishing the health of the cells in your body. The Functional Evaluation and other testing forms are used to determine areas of dysfunction and opportunities for healing. Nutritional therapists support you to understand the signs and signals that your body gives you which are key to providing information on your body’s underlying dysfunction and they support you to make the necessary Dietary and Lifestyle changes that are recommended for you to achieve optimal wellness.
At Inside Out Nutritional Therapy we focus on improving dietary, genetic, environmental, mind, body, spirit and lifestyle imbalances that are contributing to your current state of wellness. We will use food, specific dietary protocols (if necessary), targeted supplementation, lifestyle practices and emotional release techniques to target the root-cause of your dysfunction and restore balance back to your body promoting illness prevention, happiness and health!
