What is Holistic Nutrition and How Can Everyone Benefit from It?

Holistic Nutrition acknowledges that optimal health requires an individualist approach and that what works for one person, may not work for another. It incorporates the use of whole foods that are found in nature to heal and nourish the body.

The body is so incredible! It uses the food that you eat as fuel to regenerate all the cells in your body. It’s crucial that you are feeding your body with the proper nutrients that it requires to communicate with your body to breakdown and optimally rebuild. Therefore the choices that you make will directly affect how you look, feel and think.

Life is Busy
Life is busy
and your time is probably limited due to family life, work, commute times or other obligations. I know that it’s challenging to manage a meal, let alone a healthy one. Operating in fast forward, we often forget to take time for our health. More and more families are eating dinner on the fly; often grabbing fast food on their way to soccer practice or music lessons. These unhealthy eating habits will be carried with your child throughout their life, so it’s important to show them what proper nutrition looks like now. My goal is educate you and your family on fast and efficient nutritional tips in the kitchen.

What’s causing you to make a change?
Maybe you are suffering from signs and symptoms that your body is not well. Indigestion, acne, eczema, insomnia, allergies, inflammation (anything ending in “itis”), fatigue and energy crashes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, low functioning thyroid – there are certain foods that you should be avoiding and others that you should be sure to incorporate. I will walk you through nutrition and healing herbs that are best suited for your conditions.

Perhaps you’re at the stage where you are planning to have a family. Nourishing your body both pre and post pregnancy is very important. My goal is to support you through this process and give you the tools that will help you along the way.

Losing weight is often difficult. Ambitious diet behaviours can do more harm than good, and most often people gain the weight back. My goal is to implement small changes that are practical and more sustainable for longevity. These changes will become a habit and part of your lifestyle.

Don’t wait for the symptoms to arise. Preventative health measures can help everyone. Are you interested in cleaning up your diet and lifestyle, while being environmentally conscious? We come into contact with toxins on a daily basis specifically in the food we eat, the cleaning supplies we use and the beauty products that we apply. Eliminating the ones that we have control over is the best that we can do. I will help you transition to a more natural lifestyle, whether it be educating you on why to avoid certain items and what are better alternatives.
