ABOUT CATHY SLOAN GALLAGHER, FNTP

Hello and welcome to Eat Thoughtfully Nutritional Therapy.

 

I am a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP). I have been practicing for 12 years. A graduate of the Nutritional Therapy Association, I am also certified in functional lab analysis and offer blood, stool, and urine testing as well as hair tissue mineral analysis and food sensitivity testing as part of my programs.

 

My love of everything food (growing, cooking and eating), and my deep appreciation for the farmers that do the never-ending work required to bring us clean and nutritious food that is grown sustainably, is what enticed me to escape the corporate world and join the field of wellness. I truly believe that diet is foundational to our overall health and that food can be medicine.

 

As a practitioner, I help women of all ages to address chronic health concerns through food re-education, nutritional balancing, lifestyle changes, intentional movement, and stress management practices. My approach blends a detailed discovery process and hands-on functional evaluation with clinical experience and practicality. My focus is always on nourishment, rather than restriction and deprivation, with the goal of identifying root causes and addressing whole health.

 

My goal is that clients experience increased energy, less anxiety, improved mood, healthy menstrual cycle or a balanced menopause, and of course, that those persistent symptoms subside. My areas of expertise are resolving digestive distress, chronic fatigue, migraines and irregular menstrual cycles, preparing for menopause, post-menopausal support, and autoimmune disorders.

 

Aside from nutritional therapy, I love being out of doors through all of the seasons and enjoy camping, hiking, biking, walking, and cross-country skiing.  I feed my pickleball addiction at least 3 times a week. I want to make time for knitting. And I believe love, food, music, books, and dogs are what make the world go around.
