My name is Lisa Lovely and I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) and a Wahls Protocol® Health Practitioner. A FNTP is a Clinical Nutrition Professional certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association. As a FNTP, I seek to help you bring your body into balance through diet and lifestyle changes. The diet and lifestyle protocol that I personally follow, teach, and will guide you to follow in my practice is The Wahls Protocol®. I chose this protocol for myself 2 years ago after declining on standard conventional treatments for Multiple Sclerosis for 6.5 years. The impact of The Wahls Protocol® was so significant that I changed careers (from an educator to FNTP) and wrote a book about my experience in implementing The Wahls Protocol®.
In my practice, The Wahls Protocol® is our base protocol for all of our work together. In our work together, I will use my scope of practice as a FNTP and apply the protocol within our foundations. We will work together to balance your body in the foundations I am trained in as a FNTP. First and foremost, we will work together to help you adopt a nutrient dense, whole food diet. We will follow the principles of The Wahls Protocol®, at a level of the protocol in which you are comfortable in adopting and sustaining. In doing so, we will focus on digestion, blood sugar regulation, fatty acids, minerals, and hydration. We will also focus on implementing lifestyle changes, specifically in stress, sleep, and movement.
Change doesn’t come easy. This takes resiliency. This takes perseverance. This takes determination. This takes a mindset shift. This takes finding your why to adopt and sustain behavior change. In our work together, you will establish your why. You will need to call on your why throughout your journey, so if it’s strong from the start, we are in a good place.
