A Certified Holistic Nutritional Practitioner (also recognized as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist in some other Canadian provinces) are nutrition professionals who hold a diploma in natural nutrition.
Our focus is to educate the public about the importance of choosing whole-foods as a means to support the body and optimize its functions.
We understand the mind-body-spirit connection and see each individual as biochemically unique.
We are trained to make interconnections between the body systems using symptomatology to help uncover and address the root cause of our client's complaints.
We work to rebalance the body systems through the use of dietary protocols, therapeutic foods, nutraceuticals, and lifestyle modifications.
We are NOT trained to diagnose or treat conditions as this is reserved for licensed health care professionals.
Despite the WHO (world health organization) stating that 80% of all heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes and over 40% of cancer is caused by poor diet and lifestyle, nutrition is still an overlooked intervention.
I've witnessed incredible shifts in peoples health through diet alone, including my own which is why I believe nutrition is a critical and often missing component to creating optimal health.
