Count nutrients, not calories! Focus on the quality of your food with the right quantity in mind.
Holistic nutrition strongly believes the properties of natural nutrients are best summed up with these four words: natural, alive, good and quality. It’s about eating right and enjoying delicious healthy meals while supporting your individual needs.
- Natural: as in unprocessed, unrefined foods, such as whole grains and legumes.
- Alive: meaning that foods still contain live enzymes, such as fruit, vegetables, and sprouts.
- Good quality: meaning grown in soil rich with essential nutrients, such as organically grown foods (pesticide free and grown without synthetic fertilizers).
A registered holistic nutritionist (RHN) is a professional trained in natural nutrition whose main focus is to educate individuals about the benefits and health impacts of optimal nutrition. They help guide their clients through conflicting information from books, magazines and the media, which can often be confusing.
Food As Medicine
Mainstream medicine does not emphasize the significance of poor nutrition as a major cause of many health disorders. Holistic nutritionists work with clients to identify nutritional causes of diseases, using proper nutrition to help support the body’s return to optimal function. They are qualified to design personalized diet and lifestyle programs to optimize overall health.
Holistic nutritionists promote natural, alive and good quality foods. It’s about eating right and enjoying delicious healthy meals while supporting your individual needs. RHNs recommend replacing processed and packaged foods with healthy choices and discourage toxic lifestyles. They consider the different aspects of the mind, body and spirit when discussing the relationship between food and health, as well as the connection between the world and the ecology of the earth.
