Holistic Nutrition is an integrative profession that looks at the body as a whole. Existing conditions, symptoms, family history and current lifestyles are all taken into consideration in order to improve the entire well being of the individual. Nutrition is fundamental to vibrant health, and the daily choices we make can be helpful or harmful.
A Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) aims to lead their clients to optimal health through dietary education and proper food choices. RHNs are trained to look at their clients on an individual basis, unlike conventional medicine would, to help each person heal from the inside out. Unfortunately most of mainstream medicine does not recognize the strong correlation that poor nutrition has with disease progression.
Rather than just treating symptoms, a Holistic Nutritionist works to treat the nutritional cause of each dis-ease. Digestive, intestinal, hormonal, skeletal, and emotional imbalances are addressed and supported. When our body is deficient or excess in certain nutrients, or our organs become overloaded with toxins and symptoms begin to appear. Because toxins are so prevalent in our world today, it is important that we reduce our exposure, cleanse periodically, and support our vital organs to maintain a healthy state of balance.
A Registered Holistic Nutritionist will also show you how food quality and seasonality are crucial to vitality, and how proper vitamin and mineral supplementation can make a world of difference to your mood and energy levels, contributing to a glowing well-being.
