Nutrition for Trauma

How can MNT be used as in clinical practice for people who've experienced trauma?

The integrative nature of MNT involves nutritional treatment and counseling techniques that combine cellular pathways of human biochemistry with psychological and behavioral dimensions for both eating and lifestyle choices. It goes beyond traditional paradigms and personalizes therapies to adapt to individual circumstances.

 

How does MNT help with trauma-induced or stress-induced lifestyle recovery?

The principles of MNT find relevance through many different facets, including recognizing the nutritional signs of trauma and/or stress, its metabolic effects, and supporting these pathways with the proper nutrients. However, MNT also considers our individual dietary behaviors, such as food and plant addictions, food choices, and emotional eating, while additionally taking into account the spiritual nature of an individual. Macro- and micro-nutrients support changes in appetite and neurological health, and with body-mind-spirit practices can build a stable foundation for those with lived trauma or extremely stressful lives. Ultimately, implementing such practices and techniques encourages informed choices, provides increased nutrition knowledge, and helps in the mastery of self-directed practices, leading to productive lifestyles.
