There are so many different programs and types of therapy that we utilize at Trinity Teen. We assess every single girl and choose the types of therapy we believe would be most beneficial in her situation. One of the types of therapy we use often, is Nutritional Therapy.

 

What is Nutritional Therapy?

 

Nutritional Therapy is an evidence based approach to improving and maximizing someone’s health potential. Nutrition has a huge role in someone’s mental health, it isn’t all about physical health. Individuals who have unhealthy eating habits, often suffer mentally. This is because disordered eating and most cases of unhealthy relationships to food, is caused by mental illness and mental blocks.

 

How it works

 

Your brain needs a lot, in order to function properly. If you don’t feed your brain the right types of things, then every aspect of your being and body begin to suffer, until your brain is given what it needs again. It needs a lot of energy to produce all of the proper neurotransmitters, the chemicals naturally produced to send signals through the nervous system in your body. Nutrient deficiencies lead to mental health problems. This often isn’t the only issue stemming the issue, but addressing the nutritional aspects will often alleviate the problem and help us get to the root of it.
