Holistic Nutrition

Your health begins with how you decide to nurture your body. The food you eat - and don’t eat, what you put on your body, the environments you expose yourself to, how you breathe and even your outlook on life, all play important roles in achieving a life filled with health and vitality. You are constantly making conscious and not so conscious decisions that will impact the many different health markers in your body and your overall experience of wellbeing. Our goal is to help inform this decision-making process, based on the latest research and by looking at each persons current condition, environment, ancestry and history.

What Is Holistic Nutrition?

Holistic nutrition focuses on a natural approach to a healthy diet and lifestyle and considers the individual as a whole - think not only the digestive and elimination systems but also the cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, immune system, neurological system, endocrine system, etc.  These considerations also include all aspects of your lifestyle - emotional, spiritual and physical.  Most simply stated, holistic nutrition is healing with whole foods and healthy lifestyle choices to create a state of optimal health and well-being. We develop personalized protocols that match the necessary therapies that will help lead you to your health goals.

Why See a Holistic Nutritionist?

It can be quite a daunting task to make sense of all the contradictory information showcased by the various forms of media today.  And then there is all that information and research that doesn't make its way to the media, consequently, the media often does a poor job at bringing an unbiased representation of the facts to the table leaving the consumer with an incomplete picture.  Before a Holistic Nutritionist receives a diploma, we spend 2 years studying not only anatomy and physiology but also clinical and non-clinical research to help us establish a solid foundation upon which we draw to understand current, past and future study claims which in turn allows us to paint a complete picture for you.  Also, because each individual is unique, what is good for one person may not be suitable for their neighbour for a variety of reasons, which we, as Holistic Nutritionists will be able to determine through a very thorough examination of our clients health history and eating and lifestyle habits.
