About Maha Rice, FNTP

The passion for health and self-improvement has always been rooted deep within me. I read articles and books on nutritional health and personal growth for leisure.

After personally experiencing health issues and witnessing them with my family, I finally decided to take the plunge and dive into what I love as more than just a personal hobby, but as a chosen career path.

I knew I wanted to learn how to change my life with whole foods and nutrition, and now I want to take that knowledge and teach the people I care about. If you are reading this, this includes you.

When we nurture what is within us (body-mind-soul), the outside will take care of itself. This journey is not a temporary fix. It is not a fad or a temporary ‘diet’ but a lifestyle choice – an empowered choice you make with the proper information and education.

Health and well-being is my passion. Let me share it with you as we journey together to be better.

Please contact me if I can be of service to you and/or your loved ones, or even just to say hello! I would love to hear from you.

What is an FNTP?

Wellness Unfolding is a functionally dedicated approach to improving lives through diet, lifestyle changes, supplementation and careful guidance. You may have asked yourself what exactly is an FNTP??

An FNTP (Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner) is a wellness practitioner that uses holistic health methods and nutrition to improve the function of the body with whole medicinal foods instead of pharmaceutical drugs. By looking at what a person has been eating and their lifestyle habits that may have contributed to their symptoms and diseases, we then work together with the client to educate them and help them overcome their issues. The body can heal itself if it is equipped with the proper foundations and building blocks for optimal health.

The Nutritional Therapy Association’s Foundations of Health are the basis for my approach to optimal health. A properly prepared, nutrient-dense diet that supports digestion, blood sugar regulation, essential fatty acid balance, adequate minerals and proper hydration is truly the foundation for any healthy lifestyle. If the foundation isn’t strong, anything you build upon it will eventually crumble.

Castles made of sand fall into the sea, eventually..

Ideal health can be achieved through a holistic and individualized full body approach to nutrition and lifestyle, addressing the underlying contributors to dis-ease rather than only treating the symptoms. Many of our health problems are linked to deficiencies from poor nutrition caused by the standard american diet, misinformation, the abundance of processed foods and stressful life-work imbalances.

Each client will require a unique approach that is dependent on their own bio-individual needs and circumstances. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. We all have unique needs and circumstances based on our genetics, predispositions, our environment, stress levels, age, and so much more. By paying attention to what our body is telling us, we can answer the call by strengthening our foundations, honoring ancestral wisdom and enjoying food as nature provided it – in the best form for our bodies to utilize it.

The difference between an NTP and an FNTP is that the ‘functional’ distinction allows the practitioner to offer a functional clinical assessment (FCA) which is a hands on evaluation based on specific body areas that point to sensitivities and inflammations in various organs such as the liver, stomach, small intestine, etc. The FCA also allows for lingual-neural testing which is a technique based on the body’s innate ability and unique needs to determine what is good for it and what isn’t.
