Frequently Asked Questions
1) What is a registered holistic nutritionist?
Registered holistic nutritionists (R.H.N.) are professionals trained in natural nutrition and complementary therapies, whose principal function is to educate individuals and groups about the benefits and health impact of optimal nutrition. Through my training at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition, I’m qualified to work with clients to identify and help correct the nutritional imbalances and to design personalized diet and lifestyle programs that support good health. My goal as an R.H.N. is to help you make the best possible food choices to meet your vision of optimal health.
2) How can a Holistic Nutritionist help with balancing hormones?
A Holistic Nutritionist will aim to understand the root cause of disease or any imbalance. Working with our Holistic Nutritionist will be an educational process to help you understand the medicinal aspects of food and therapeutic supplements will help to balance hormones and support the liver in detoxification and excess hormones to allow the hormonal cascade to fall back into balance. There are many foods that support the organs and hormones to function optimally. Further, addressing optimal digestion will be a component to effectively balance hormones to ensure you are breaking down foods into their usable components.
2) Can balancing hormones help me lose weight?
There is a direct correlation with estrogen dominance and weight gain especially around the abdomen area. Balancing hormones will definitely positively impact weight loss. Your body produces estrogen in the adrenal glands, brain, and in your ovaries or testes, depending on your equipment. Another place both men and women produce estrogen is in adipose (fat) tissues. So balancing hormones and bringing an excess estrogen situation back into balance will aid with weight loss.
3) How does a Holistic Nutritionist work with a Naturopath?
A Holistic Nutritionist is very supportive to our Naturopath and can work very effectively together. A Nutritionist will aim to provide additional support and education as it pertains to utilizing food as medicine, meal planning and utilizing specific foods for detoxification.
