What is Holistic Nutrition?

Nutritious meal prepping with veggies and fruitsOur bodies are constantly exposed to toxins, whether in the food we eat or the air we breathe. Individuals don’t realize how nutrient-deprived they are or how often the major organs suffer from toxic overload. The symptoms of not feeling optimal are the body’s way of telling us that balance needs to be restored. The holistic approach to nutrition looks at these symptoms in order to determine the underlying cause. The cause of these symptoms is what holistic nutrition works to correct.

Holistic nutrition focuses on the consumption of natural, wholesome foods and the elimination of toxins from our bodies. The deficiencies and imbalances suffered by our bodies are addressed through changes in diet, supplementation and other positive lifestyle changes. Since the root cause of many symptoms is often nutrition related, once the body is provided with a strong nutritional foundation, it often heals itself.

A dietitian generally provides nutritional advice solely as it relates to a medical diagnosis, even though some people experience different symptoms with the same disease.
