HoListic Nutrition Therapy
Alternative medicine is the fastest growing field in health care today. Through the increasing awareness of alternative health care, the general public is seeking credible practitioners to guide them in their quest for better health. Nutrition is one of the key factors to attaining optimal well-being. It is also one of the most confusing areas of our health.
Unfortunately, mainstream medicine does not emphasize the significance of poor nutrition as a major cause of a wide range of health disorders. Although most people are aware of the benefits of sound nutrition, the range of conflicting information available to the consumer is overwhelming. Registered Holistic Nutritionists guide clients through the maze of media madness to a clear understanding of what their body needs.
Blending research with common sense, a registered holistic nutritionist draws on ancient wisdom, traditional methods, and the latest scientific discoveries to develop a unique plan specific to the client’s needs. Registered Holistic Nutritionists take the approach of a whole person (mind, body and spirit). Rather than putting a bandaid over the problem, they work toward getting to the root cause of the illness or imbalance and help the body to repair itself.
As functional practitioners, Registered Holistic Nutritionists can interpret a variety of symptoms that represent the early stages of illness before they develop into more serious problems, and often before they show up in blood tests. Since everyone is biochemically unique, Registered Holistic Nutritionists work with each person individually, offering unique plans specific to their personal needs including suggestions for lifestyle changes, food choices, herbs, and supplements. Elements of holistic nutrition include unrefined, unprocessed, organic, and locally grown whole foods, herbal remedies, lifestyle changes, as well as quality supplements that all focus on repairing digestive health.
FOUNDATION OF HOLISTIC NUTRITION
The foundation of holistic nutrition therapy practice is the digestive system. All disease begins in the gut. Hippocrates said this 2000 years ago and researchers are only now realizing just how right he was. Good health begins and ends with strong digestion. Beyond bloating and discomfort, poor digestion can lead to many health problems like allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue, difficulty concentrating, poor sleep, depression, autoimmune disease, and more.
Often, the digestive system is under fire with junk foods, chronic stress, coffee and alcohol, medications like antibiotics, birth control pills, over the counter pain relievers, and so on. Nutrition and lifestyle have a powerful impact on health and overall well being. Every bite you take either pushes you closer to health or closer to disease. Nutrients and other food components influence every function of the body, protect against or contribute to illness, restore or destroyhealth, and determine your response (positive or negative) to your environment.
The magic all starts in the gut. You are not what you eat. You are what you absorb. Without good digestive health, the body will not assimilate and utilize the nutrients in food. Robust gut health leads to robust overall health and a deep sense of wellbeing.
