food is medicine
one diet does not fit all
a disease does not define a person
better health is achievable, no matter the circumstances
About Holistic Nutrition:
Holistic Nutrition is an integrative approach to diet that considers the individual’s unique nutritional requirements and aims to balance physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. White taking an individualized approach, a holistic diet always focuses on whole foods and may include nutritional supplements, when necessary.
A Holistic Nutritionist is a professional trained in Applied Holistic Nutrition and complementary therapies, whose principal function is to educate individuals about the benefits and health impact of optimal nutrition.
Although most people are aware of the benefits of sound nutrition, the range of conflicting information available to the consumer is often confusing. Holistic Nutritionists guide their clients through the maze of information about diets and supplements on the market. They work with clients to identify and help correct the nutritional imbalances that lead to disease and they are qualified to design personalized diet and lifestyle programs that optimize health.
Below is a list of some of the tools your nutritionist may provide you to support you in meeting
your health goals:
• Specific diet recommendations, highlighting the foods that will be most therapeutic for you
• Personalized meal plans and recipes that emphasize your recommended foods
• Helpful tools, tips and resources to help you with the implementation of your dietary plan
