What is Holistic Nutrition?
Holistic nutrition is the practice of a natural approach to a healthy diet while taking into account all aspects of your lifestyle to create a state of well-being for optimum health. A holistic approach to nutrition encourages education on the basics to develop a diet that includes natural and anti-inflammatory foods, supplementation and food treatments for acute and chronic health conditions.
The fundamental principle we practice upon is promoting food that provides the energy needed to function properly while supplying the body with nutrients to restore and regenerate. Wholesome nutrients obtained from food are essential for the natural processes that constantly take place in the body. Nutrition involves macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein & fat) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) – all of these components play an important role in how the body functions and are essential to a complete, balanced diet.
Your body is a remarkable thing and it has an incredible capacity to repair itself with the right resources. Most integrative practitioners agree that following a diet under the guidelines of holistic nutrition allows people to naturally restore health without the use of prescription drugs. Nutrition requires a proper balance of nutrients for your health to reach optimum energy levels, emotional well-being and a strong immune system to fight infections. If you’re struggling with an unhealthy relationship with food, we can help you change that and find a more positive approach. If you’re in search of finding a means to cope with a condition with nutrition or you just want to learn how to eat better, holistic nutritional counselling may be right for you.
Types of Foods & Meal Plans
The most important component on holistic nutrition is incorporating natural, organic foods into your diet whenever possible. It is important to limit refined and processed foods as they cause a host of problems for the body and can create lots of issues for you in the long run. Everybody is unique and responds to various foods differently. Our nutrition team works with all kinds of diets and foods such as paleo, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, as well as food related conditions. We strongly believe in working alongside a diet and lifestyle that works and is best for you and your individual health needs. Our team offers the creation of carefully and individually curated meal plans to help guide you.
It is just as important to nourish your body with plenty of fluids. Without water we simply cannot survive! Water is involved in every bodily function from digestion, circulation through to the control of temperature and excretion of waste products. It’s important to make sure you are consuming the right type of water – we encourage good quality filtered water as this dramatically reduces your ingestion of toxins. In addition to water, there are so many drinks and alternatives that we consume that may not be beneficial for our health. Limiting processed and refined sugar beverages we consume will help us on our journey to holistic well-being.
Following a holistic nutritional plan has powerful psychological, spiritual, emotional and overall health benefits. This is especially true for people who may suffer from chronic conditions. A holistic diet strengthens the bones, blood, muscles and vital organs, including the heart, liver, gut, and intestines. Holistic nutrition aligns with the belief that physical ailments can be directly related to psychological well-being, so developing a health and balanced diet helps to relieve many stressors. Holistic nutrition is designed to rejuvenate the body, enrich the mind and cleanse the soul to reach the ultimate healthy lifestyle.
