What Is Holistic Nutrition?
Holistic Nutrition is an alternative modality to healthcare that focuses on a natural approach to utilizing evidence-based techniques for diet, lifestyle and detoxification. Instead of focusing on just one aspect of the person, or taking a one size fits all methodology, holistic nutrition evaluates the complete health history, emotional state, lifestyle and dietary habits of an individual to determine the root cause of his or her health issues. Holistic nutrition looks at symptomatology as a way to understand the root cause of an imbalance and utilizes therapeutic nutrition and supplementation to bring the body back into balance. Holistic Nutrition offers an educated approach to help you take ownership of your health with your everyday food choices. Understanding the medicinal aspects to food and lifestyle is truly empowering for an individual looking to maintain optimal health.
