Holistic nutrition is an approach to health that evaluates each person as a unique being with different nutrition, dietary and lifestyle needs. It’s principles are to examine the connections in the body between the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and external environment.
Conventional medicine, which has helped many people and has an important place in our health system, often addresses symptoms using medication as the first course of action. More often than not, it does not address the root cause of a health condition and takes a band-aid approach. In reality, poor nutrition and nutrient deficiencies are often linked to many health issues. When you add in all the media confusion surrounding the latest health trends and “fad” diets, things can get overwhelming. It can become hard to understand what is fact or myth.
The truth of it all is that we are all biochemically unique!
What works for one person may not work for the next. That’s where holistic nutrition steps in. It always includes a complete evaluation of one’s diet, lifestyle, symptoms, emotional state, health history and medical history.
As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, I take the time to listen and ask questions to uncover an accurate snapshot of your current health picture. Each person is unique and deserves unique recommendations so that they can feel their best.
The marketing of food products is a billion-dollar industry and this makes it difficult for consumers to know what is healthy and what is not. In the past, the industry has vilified foods and food groups such as salt, fat, and carbohydrates…but the real villain is all of the sugar, refined and processed foods in our diet!
Although we are living longer, so many people are living it not feeling that great. On top of all that, numerous diseases are on the rise as a result of a poor diet. In respect to children there is an epidemic of conditions on the rise including ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, allergies, asthma and even childhood obesity.
A whole foods approach allows you to fuel your body with the vitamins and minerals you need to thrive and to reduce the foods that cause you stress and harm. In holistic nutrition we help identify imbalances in body systems and create a tailored approach using diet and lifestyle recommendations.
