Holistic nutrition focuses on improving health and quality of life through diet and other naturally based therapies. Holistic nutrition branches beyond just food, but integrates the mental and physical aspects that play a role in food choice and diet satisfaction. By encompassing the whole mind and body relationship with diet, Holistic Nutritionists can investigate the underlying diet-related causes of various ailments.
Nutritional counselling is unique to each client, however some common advising includes: clarification of diet trends and myths, developing personalized meal plans, suggesting lifestyle changes or helping select an appropriate supplementation regime. Counseling is tailored to each client based on his or her personal goals and lifestyle preferences. Working with a Holistic Nutritionist helps increase awareness of the relationship between mind and body while improving overall health and well-being.
