What Is Holistic Nutrition?
Holistic nutrition takes an individualized approach towards improving your health and wellness. It is all-encompassing in nature, considering body and mind, and aims at achieving long term health through the use of whole foods, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle techniques.

Why See a Registered Holistic Nutritionist?
Something just isn’t right
Maybe you have a chronic health concern you'd like to address, digestive concerns that never seem to improve, or just haven't been feeling 100%. You feel disconnected from your body and what it needs, you stress over what to eat/not to eat and you know you want to feel better, but don't know where to start.
You have a goal
Maybe this goal is about how you feel, how you look, how you perform, to reduce/remove a medication, to improve health markers, to reduce the risk of illness, or even just something you'd like to improve overall. You know what you want but aren't sure what the first, second, or third steps are.
Eat the fat or cut the fat? Does gluten-free mean it's healthier? Is cholesterol bad? Should I cut carbs? What about fruit? Fasting? Do I need to restrict? There is a LOT of information out there and you just don't know what to do.
You care about your health today, and in the future
You want to feel good today AND be able to enjoy your later years. You care about taking preventative action to improve your long-term quality of life while reducing risks of disease, injury, and illness.
You want to improve your relationship with food
You're tired of yo-yo dieting, fad diets, classifying foods as "good" or "bad", bingeing, weighing and tracking everything you eat, falling off the wagon, not trusting yourself with snacks in the house, and you want to enjoy food again without guilt or anxiety.
You want to know what's best for YOU
You don't want a cookie-cutter plan, you want to know what's best for you and your body, health needs, history, preferences, and lifestyle. You want changes and adjustments to be made based on you, and your concerns to be taken seriously.
