What is Holistic Nutrition?

The word Holistic simple means ‘treating the body as a whole’, bringing the whole body; body, mind and spirit, into a state of equilibrium (balance).

Wholesome foods are the foundation of holistic nutrition. With emphasis on consumption of nutrient-dense, un-processed, organic, seasonal, whole foods. In the absence of wholesome foods, optimum health and well-being gives way to disease.

Holistic Nutritionist -vs- Dietician
Nutritionists and Dieticians both believe food choices play a critical role in overall health. A Nutritionist works on the body as a whole and treats each client individually by addressing a person's symptoms and imbalances. A Dietician generally works on giving nutritional advice as it relates to a medical diagnosis, even though some individuals experience different symptoms with the same disease.

How can a Holistic Nutritionist help me?
Holistic Nutritionists help their clients by analyzing their current health status and finding ways to improve areas of imbalances through diet and lifestyle changes. They recognize the connection between the individual’s biochemical, mental, spiritual and environmental states, and how each directly affects their health. Since no two people have the same body chemistry, the approach to each individual is always unique. Different people need different things. What is lacking in one person may not be lacking in another. It all depends on your particular body chemistry. Holistic Nutritionists work together with their clients by educating them and giving them the tools to achieve and maintain a lifestyle that is balanced, fulfilling, nourished and whole.

The great majority of the illnesses plaguing our society are a direct result of dietary choices. Either an excess of toxins or a deficiency of essential nutrients. It is unfortunate that we've had to adopt the habit of reading food labels in order to be sure we're buying real food. There really isn't much room for error if we follow 1 simple guideline which is: eat foods that nature has provided (nature doesn't package food).

Yours in Natural Health,
