Alexis Martin, NTP
Hello and welcome to Real Food Performance. I’m Alexis, a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) and licensed RESTART® instructor based in Bend, Oregon.
Thanks to a holistic, real food-based healing approach, I've been able to recover from years of digestive issues and resulting fatigue and poor mental health. Now I enjoy training for and running trail ultramarathons, while maintaining the energy and focus I need to work full time. Because of the resolution I’ve found, I am passionate about helping others improve diet and digestion to support physical and mental performance and reclaim their vitality.
Nutritional Therapy is a personalized, foundational approach to nutrition that emphasizes the use of nutrient-dense, properly prepared whole foods as a key to enhancing the body’s ability to heal.
As an NTP, I am trained to support the foundations of health, specifically digestion, blood sugar regulation, fatty acid balance, mineral sufficiency, hydration, and a nutrient-dense diet of properly sourced and prepared whole foods. Focusing on these areas helps us get to the root cause of your health concerns, rather than simply chasing symptoms. I use a range of clinical skills to assess your unique nutritional needs, and I create a customized protocol to help bring your body back into balance. Wherever you are in the world, I can work with you.
My aim is to empower you to think critically about what you put into and on your body, and to help you establish realistic and sustainable dietary and lifestyle habits. I do not recommend a restrictive, one-size-fits-all diet, and I will always respect your biological individuality.
Whether you are dealing with specific health concerns or want to optimize your nutrition and performance, I am here to equip you with the tools you need to attain a higher quality of life.
When we eat and absorb the right nutrients for our bio-individual needs, better performance in work, sport, and life really is possible.
