Greetings, my name is Ashley Hutchinson. I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP). I am a wife of 23 years and a mother of four children, three of which are adults. I have personally faced many wellness battles and misfortunes, including alpha-gal Syndrome (Lone Star tick bite/mammalian allergies), interstitial cystitis, PCOS (hormonal/metabolic issues), gallbladder removal issues, hyperemesis gravedarum, panic disorder, and that names just a few! I know the struggle of wanting to feel your best. I empathize and understand how frustrating your journey to wellness and balanced nutrition can be. I hope to make nutritional wellness aspects of your life far less complicated and frustrating. Together, we can build the puzzle that will be your bigger picture, one that is happier and healthier.
I deliver a full spectrum of evidence-based information that applies the power of whole foods to empower my clients to reconnect with their body's innate wisdom to support their individual needs, which creates lifelong wellness (Nutritional Therapy Association, n.d.). As an NTP, I am not here to provide suggestions for fad diet trends, or one size fits all approaches! I want to see you leading a nourishing nutritional lifestyle that meets your needs.
Nourishing food is a fantastic place to start a wellness journey. We have all heard the term that you are what you eat, and this is a true statement by some measure. Nourishing foods are important because the food we ingest is our body's fuel source and fortification. When we give our bodies the nutrients it needs and support the foundations of nutrition (view in the graphic), we support the body's natural bio-individual path to vibrant wellness. Bio-individual equals, uniquely you, no two bodies are the same! I use the term bio-individual frequently because my work revolves around each individual body's needs and preferences.
