What is Holistic Nutrition and How Can it Help You?
Holistic Nutrition plays a key role in the quickly growing field of health care. In the United States more deaths and diseases are preventable and often related to nutrition. The number one cause of death in the United States (heart disease) is related to nutrition or lack thereof. You would think that nutrition would be taught in medical school, Right? Sadly, that’s not the case. Western medicine still overlooks the incredible healing power of food. There is so much false advertising in our food and health industries that it can be incredible difficult to navigate in order to make sound and informed decision that leave you feeling healthy and free from disease and health related symptoms. So, what exactly is Holistic Nutrition?It’s looking at an individual’s whole body and considering the physical, emotional, environmental and nutritional components of their life.
Everyone is unique, so there in not a “one size fits all” solution when you’re talking about nutrition. A Certified Holistic Nutrition Coach (CHNC) will assess your individual needs in a gentle and compassionate approach. Once the assessment and goals are discussed the CHNC will develop a plan along with the Client that will include a whole food style of eating, movement and self-care. Along with education and support the Client will be able to reap the benefits and begin living a vibrant, energized and thriving in an environment free from toxins.
