Our Commercial Drive Holistic Nutritionist Kelsey Ellis will help you make a change through nutrition and exercise, and create long term lifestyle habits.

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
• Nutritional supplement recommendations
• Lifestyle counselling, which will address areas of exercise, sleep and stress management
• Food allergy / sensitivity testing (when necessary)

About Your Appointment:

Initial Visit:

Let’s deep dive into your health concerns and uncover any potential underlying imbalances that may be contributing to feeling unwell.

Your dietary and lifestyle needs will be assessed and a personalized protocol will be provided in a consecutive protocol discussion session, booked separately.

Subsequent Visit:

Following a consultation, follow up sessions are provided to assess your progress and re-adjust your protocol as needed. Any further questions will also be discussed. Following this session, your re-adjusted protocol will be delivered by e-mail.
