What is Functional Nutrition?

The main need for functional nutrition is to qualitatively improve and personalize nutrition. This need is underpinned by the discomforts caused by unhealthy diets, digestive problems, food intolerances and the resulting nutritional difficulties and weight gain.

This approach to nutrition refers to an understanding that foods not only provide essential nutrients, but also examine their specific effects on the body. That is, it is not only important that a food is rich in calories and nutrients, but also how it affects the body. This approach aims to personalize nutrition plans based on factors such as an individual’s genetic makeup, lifestyle and health status. This can help maintain a healthy lifestyle and prevent potential health problems.

What Approach Do We Take?

In our first one-on-one consultation, we ask you for information about your condition and try to fill in any missing or omitted points. We then create a nutrition-based roadmap for your health. Based on this map, we create your nutrition and dietary supplement plan.

Starting with the forms you submit, we collect information about your general health status, symptoms and diagnoses. We try to identify possible nutritional deficiencies in your body. At this point, we take into account that although you may be eating a balanced diet, the intensity of your organs’ work may affect this balance.

At each consultation, we assess your general health, diet and intake of nutritional supplements. Through the materials and videos we share with you, we try to guide you through the transformation of your life. We aim to support you to move step by step towards feeling healthier and better every day. In the process, we share resources and guidelines to help you achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Who Should Prefer?

Consuming foods that are not suitable for the digestive system, which can damage the intestinal wall, can lead to a weakened intestinal wall. Over time, this can lead to a permeable intestinal wall and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. It can also lead to increased inflammation in the body, making weight gain inevitable. The immune system can also become hypersensitive to this inflammation.

Functional nutrition aims to effectively treat vitamin and mineral deficiencies caused by a weakened intestinal wall. Therefore, instead of asking “who is suitable for functional nutrition”, it may be more meaningful to ask in which cases this approach can be applied.
