Holistic Nutrition is based on the principles that we are each biochemically distinct and have unique nutritional and lifestyle needs. As such, any health recommendations provided by a Holistic Nutritionist, whether they are diet, supplement or lifestyle changes, are made specifically to YOU. The purpose is to harmonize the whole body by taking into consideration the complex relationship between the physical, mental, emotional, as well as spiritual and environmental aspects of one’s life. Meal plans, recipe ideas, and supplements may all be included in your recommendations.
Commonly addressed conditions include: ADHD, allergies and food sensitivities, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, GERD, hormonal imbalances, IBS, migraines, psoriasis, weight loss/gain, and more.
When looking to optimize fertility, a great place to start is by looking at diet and lifestyle. There are many specific foods that can help promote egg and sperm health. It can also be a good idea to do a cleanse or detoxification program before trying to conceive to ensure that both parents are in optimum health, and the reproductive cells are strong and ready to create a healthy pregnancy.
Knowing what to eat during pregnancy is hard work! Between cravings, food aversions, safety concerns, heartburn, nausea, and gaining an appropriate amount of weight, many women struggle. Our holistic nutritionist will work with you to ensure you are on the best quality supplements, and are getting the nutrients that both you and baby need, while taking into account any aversions or cravings you may be experiencing.
Eating well during the postpartum period is one of the most essential ways to help your body heal, and balance your hormones. Often nutrient stores are completely depleted after pregnancy so those will need to be replenished. You may also need to take into account optimal foods to promote lactation in mom, and avoid gas producing foods for baby.
From starting solids, to picky eaters, to healthy snack choices, there are so many questions when it comes to what to feed your children. Our Holistic Nutritionist has a loving, individualized approach, the answers to those burning questions, and loads of family friendly and delicious recipes to share with you!
Healthy eating is always best when done as a family! Our Holistic Nutritionist can provide recommendations and help you take a proactive approach to the health of your whole family and work towards creating a healthy relationship with food.
