Holistic Nutrition…setting the foundations to health eating

Holistic Nutrition is an integrative approach to diet that considers the individuals unique nutritional requirements and aims to balance physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well being. While taking an individualized approach, a holistic diet is always focused on whole foods and may include nutritional supplements when necessary.

A Holistic Nutritionist is a professional trained in Natural 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 supplements and diets on the market. They work with clients to identify and help correct the nutritional causes of 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 will provide you with 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
  • Food allergy/sensitivity testing
  • Lifestyle counseling which will address areas of exercise, sleep and stress management

What to Expect:

Before your fist visit you will be asked to fill out a comprehensive intake form as well as a 5-day diet diary. The purpose of the diet diary is to get an idea of how you fit meals into your daily schedule, how much food preparation is being done at home, and what foods are being consumed on a regular basis. Please choose 5 consecutive days that most reflect your typical eating habits and include at least one weekend day. The diet diary is also a great opportunity for you to start to tune in to how you feel after eating certain foods.

The first visit is scheduled for 60 minutes and includes a detailed overview of your medical history, current symptoms, eating habits, and your primary health concerns.

Some recommendations may be given in the first visit however a more detailed treatment plan including personalized meal suggestions, recipes, as well as lifestyle and supplement recommendations will be presented at the second visit.

Subsequent visits are scheduled on an as-needed basis and will vary depending on the level of support that you need but it’s generally recommended that you check in with your nutritionist every 4-6 weeks after a new dietary plan is introduced.
