What is Holistic Nutrition?
Holistic Nutrition is an approach to Nutrition counseling that takes a deeper look into the root cause of a physiological issue someone is experiencing. Instead of simply treating the symptoms that are being experienced we look to reestablish balance at the root of where it has been lost in the body. Holistic nutrition looks closely at food intake but that is not where it ends. We also look at movement, digestion, hydration, social connections, stress levels and sleep. It focuses on the interconnected physiological, cultural, and mental roles of food in our lives. All recommendations are backed by evidenced based science and will be made based on an in-depth analysis of the health history, thorough biochemical assessment and medical science.
An important aspect of Holistic Nutrition is bio-individuality. I believe that your food and lifestyle needs are not the same as your neighbor. What may promote optimal health for one person may leave another person feeling unsatisfied. I support my client’s individual food needs and don’t impose a one-size fits all approach.
