What is Holistic Nutrition?
Holistic Nutrition focuses on a special combination of modern science and time-tested wisdom based on the principal that everyone is biochemically unique with varying, and specific nutritional needs. A professional certified in Holistic Nutrition™ (or a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant™) uncovers the underlying nutritional excesses or deficiencies in the individuals diet and advises on food and lifestyle practices to help the body return to a state of balance. This whole-body approach of science, symptom assessment, whole foods, supplements, and lifestyle practices, help to make the unique connection between the body, mind, and spirit.
What can a professional Certified in Holistic Nutrition™ do for you?
A professional Certified in Holistic Nutrition™ can assess an individual through one-on-one consultations and focuses on questionnaires which assess their current diet, health history, exercise, stress level, sleep routine, relaxation, and their over-all lifestyle choices. They educate on the functions of whole-body systems and their relative symptoms. These symptoms can range from blood sugar and hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, food intolerances, weight gain, allergies, inflammation, and to improve energy and sleep.
They help their clients by providing individualized health plans, which may include recipes for nutrient dense whole foods, high quality naturally sourced vitamin/mineral supplements (if needed), and lifestyle recommendations. They educate on how to plan, shop for, and prepare foods, focusing on sustainable farming, the environment, and reducing exposure to toxins. Their services can vary and may include consultations, group packages, meal planning, in home cooking, grocery store and market tours, cooking classes, and writing.
