What Is Nutritional Consulting?
Utilizing holistic nutritional principles, a Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner (ROHP) uses each individual’s unique health and lifestyle information to devise a nutritional plan to optimize health, lose weight, or achieve whatever that individual’s personal health goals may be. Nutritional education is an often overlooked aspect of health and fitness, and can make a tremendous impact on one’s feeling of well-being.
What Is an ROHP (Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner)?
A Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner is a therapist who has completed a set course of study in health and nutrition from an accredited school, and is registered with the IONC (International Organization of Nutritional Consultants).
The designation RNCP/ROHP is governed by the IONC. The program of study includes anatomy, physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, digestion and elimination, as well as various aspects of nutrition. They specialize in maintaining or restoring biochemistry and physiology in the body for optimum health and well-being.
What Happens During the First Visit?
During the initial consult, the ROHP will review the health history, and discuss concerns and the reason for the visit. In addition, some special tests (including saliva PH levels or body measurements for example) may be performed. The Nutrition Practitioner will then discuss a time frame for review of the devised plan, further follow up visits and/or any homecare needed.
Why See a Nutritional Consultant?
There are many reasons for seeing a nutritional consultant, the most common however include:
Weight Management – This may be a first step, or the addition to a progressing fitness schedule. Proper nutritional information from a knowledgeable practitioner can give the energy to keep going, and the guidance to see real results with a weight loss/gain plan that actually works, and is suited to YOUR lifestyle!
Fitness Goals – If you are already on track, the addition of nutrition consulting can take your results to the next level, and make sure you achieve optimal results.
General Health Concerns – Maybe feeling like your age or lifestyle are catching up with you? Are you feeling fatigued all the time? Is your family health history a concern? Do you have general aches or pains, troubles with digestion or sleeping? Maybe just feeling like now is the best time to get to your optimum health? Any of these are great reasons to start a plan that can give you the correct information to make and see changes to your overall health.
Specific Health Concerns – Many conditions (diabetes, cardiovascular concerns, high cholesterol or high blood pressure as examples) can be significantly managed and even reversed with proper nutrition and a positive lifestyle change. Accurate, informative and balanced advice can help make changes that are easy to live with for you and for life.
