Before beginning Nutritional Therapy with your Nutritional Therapy Practitioner ("NTP"), please read and follow this information Carefully and then Sign and Date page 5. “RWP” Restorative Wellness Practitioner - Gastrointestinal Health.

1.     All information provided by Lindsey Dixon NTP. RWP. BSc. sole trader of Nutritional Digest (ABN 31314949143) is intended to be of a general nature only and is included for the sole purpose of encouragement and optimising support and overall health. The Nutritional Therapy Goals are about bringing balance to the five foundations which in turn are built upon a single - solid - base: a properly prepared, nutrient-dense diet.

  • Digestion

  • Blood Sugar Regulation

  • Fatty Acid Balance

  • Mineral Balance

  • Hydration

By supporting each of these foundations and helping clients adopt a more nutrient-dense diet, the body's chemistry can be brought back into natural balance, setting the stage for optimal health.

Nutritional Therapy and material, advice and statements provided by Nutritional Digest are not designed, however, to treat any specific disease or medical condition. The NTP is trained to evaluate your nutritional needs and make recommendations of dietary change and nutritional support and or supplementation, not to make medical diagnoses or prescriptions. No comment or recommendation from your NTP should be construed as a medical diagnosis or prescription.

2. Health Concerns -If you suffer from a medical or pathological condition, you need to consult with an appropriate healthcare provider. An NTP is not a substitute for your family physician or other appropriate healthcare provider.

An NTP is not trained nor licensed to diagnose or treat pathological conditions, illness, injuries, or diseases or prescribe medications.

3. Your General or Specialist Practitioner (Medical Doctor/Physician) - If you are under the care of another healthcare provider, it is important that you contact your other healthcare providers and alert them to your use of nutritional supplements. Nutritional Therapy may be a beneficial adjunct to more traditional care, and it may also alter your need for medications, so it is important you always keep your physician informed of changes in your nutritional program.

If you are using medication of any kind, you are required to alert the NTP to such use, as well as to discuss any potential interactions between medications and nutritional products with your pharmacist.

If you have any physical or emotional reactions to Nutritional Therapy, discontinue their use immediately, and contact your NTP to ascertain if the reaction is adverse or an indication of the natural course of the body's adjustment to the therapy. As each client is a Bio-Individual (biochemically individual), it is not possible to determine in advance how your body will react to nutrients or supplements you may need. It is sometimes necessary to adjust your program and proceed in a manner to which your body can begin to properly accept targeted nutrients geared to correct imbalances or deficiencies. Please make the following steps it is your responsibility to do your part by:

  • Following the nutrition guidelines provided by your NTP

  • Eating a properly prepared, nutrient-dense diet

  • Avoiding harmful foods, substances, and behaviors

  • Moving your body daily

  • Getting plenty of sleep, rest, and relaxation

  • Staying in contact with the NTP so they can stay abreast of your progress and provide the best course of action going forward

Our primary focus is on properly prepared, nutrient-dense whole foods. We do discuss supplements which play a key role in our Functional Clinical Assessment techniques, but it is important to note that the primary goal of supplements in the 'Functional Clinical Assessment' is used to identify deficiencies and imbalances, not to choose supplements for clients.

Once deficiencies and imbalances are identified, Nutritional Therapy Practitioners can then use a variety of tools (e.g. dietary changes, lifestyle recommendations, targeted supplementation, etc.) to strengthen and balance the body’s foundations. The primary focus is about digestive support, properly prepared foods of a nutrient-dense and wholefoods base, blood sugar regulation, removing unhealthy toxic environmental elements, promoting regular and healthy hydration, promoting healthy bowel function, advice on symptom support during the initial 1-2 weeks of digestive and/or healing reactions that may occur and promoting lifestyle and holistic support when needed.

4. Contact by your Medical Provider - If your other healthcare provider has any questions regarding Nutritional Therapy, they are free to contact your NTP.

5. Licensure - Your NTP is certified as a "Nutritional Therapy Practitioner" (NTP) by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc. (NTA).

  • NTPs are approved by NTA and expected to maintain certification on an annual basis by way of continued educational and learning practices -The NTA requires students to obtain 24 CEUs every two years. One CEU credit is awarded per one hour.
