Finding the right Holistic Nutritionist for you
How we can help you
Holistic Nutrition is the use of everyday nutrition, eating habits, and lifestyle techniques to improve your health
Pretty simple, right?
The problem is, that medicine can sometimes miss the fact that poor nutrition is one of the major contributors to a wide range of health issues.
Most of us are aware that healthy food has many benefits to our physical and mental health and our overall wellbeing.
The volume and range of conflicting information in the media and social media is often overwhelming and just straight confusing
Working with a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N. or a C.H.N.C) can show you the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes that are practical to you.
It can be hard to make a diet change, but given the practical tools for change, you can create lasting results
What we can help you with
One of the great things about holistic nutrition is the approach is individualized.
We’re not hampered by guidelines, restrictions, and you are not put into a box because of your condition.
We focus on creating a healthy relationship with food, a strong and healthy digestive system, and work on the reasons for the change to create long-term results.
Food is information for the body and creating a healthy relationship only strengthens this. Counting calories isn’t a way to develop a good relationship with your food, this is why we don’t do it.
Developing a healthy relationship with foods allows you the ability to make smarter choices and not to panic when you “treat yourself” with a cookie (or box).
Having a strong digestive system is the basis for health. It’s not “You are what you eat”, it’s “You are what you digest”. The fact is that because you eat a certain food doesn’t mean you’ll digest or use it properly.
The majority of people know that they need to eat “healthier” but still don’t do it. Working on why you want to change makes that change last. If you’ve tried numerous times or there’s too much information to pick from, we can be an option for you.
Did you know that you can improve your productivity by 88% by having a coach on your side?
An article in Public Management revealed a study where training alone was compared to coaching combined with training. The study showed that training alone increased productivity by 22.4% while training combined with weekly coaching increased productivity by 88%.

Frequently asked questions
Holistic nutrition is all about eating healthy food as close to its natural state as possible for optimum health and wellbeing.
Hallmarks of holistic nutrition include unrefined, unprocessed, organic and locally grown whole foods. It’s an approach to eating that very consciously considers everything that’s eaten and focuses on eating for health above all else.
Most of our clients don’t actually start with a full diet change. I typically suggest a diet for you and you can learn about that diet at your pace. We usually focus on important foods to incorporate, foods that are making you feel like crap, and other lifestyle things to focus on – better routines, better mental health practices, and fun movement-based exercise.
A Holistic Nutritionist, is a health practitioner trained specifically in nutrition, and nutrition-related interventions – sleep, exercise, mindfulness.
Holistic Nutritionists are trained to help with a variety of concerns and symptoms, as well as general lifestyle support – we focus on mental health, chronic pain, and sleep problems.
The word “holistic” simply means that we take a holistic perspective to health, understanding how diet, lifestyle, environment, mental and emotional wellbeing all play a role in one’s health and all work together. Though, the term holistic to be increasingly less meaningful, like many practitioners, in many fields today have a holistic perspective.
“Nutritionist” is a confusing term. “Nutritionist” is an unregulated term and can be used by anyone. You will see both Holistic Nutritionists and Dietitians use this term, along with others who may not be certified or registered. A certified or registered nutritionist will have designation behind their name. You will see RD, for Registered Dietitians or the designation CNP or RHN for Certified Holistic Nutritionists.
The difference between a Registered Dietitian and a Holistic Nutritionist is mainly the training, schooling, and philosophy, which relates to the context within which each practice. Holistic Nutritionists are trained to work in private practice, and/or for larger organizations within the private sector. The training is heavily focused on 1:1 or group coaching, individualized and personalized health, with a very food-focused approach to nutrition (i.e. cooking, prepping, how to work with food, instead of focusing on isolated nutrients). The training is limited in that it does NOT set you up to work within the public sector, within the healthcare system (i.e. hospitals, community health centres), or work with high-level clinical nutrition (i.e. tube-feeding etc. or medical/complex diseased states). The training to become a dietitian is longer and more extensive as it sets you up to work with much more complex cases that need a deeper understanding of nutrition within the healthcare system. Registered Dietitians also work in private practice, and this is a space we both share.
No, I don’t.
I don’t do a 7-day meal plan but I do give you plenty of recipe ideas for you to choose from – breakfast, lunch, and dinner… and obviously snacks! If you want a meal plan to follow, we have great people we refer to for that! You can also look at Forks over Knives meal planner or NOOM are ones I routinely suggest
Well, it really depends!
It depends on your goals, your level of change, how much accountability you need, and how long it’s been happening
I suggest chatting with me at least 3x though, the “take your plan and go” strategy doesn’t work long-term. You’re making a change and you’ve come to me because you need help. I’m able to help educate the ways to make the change, for the long-term
People need guidance to start something new, this is why I suggest 3 sessions. I do the in-depth initial assessment and then suggest 2 follow-ups about 3-4 weeks apart. During that time in between, you have access to me via email for any questions that pop up or struggles that occur.
Whatever your situation is, I work within it, while being open and honest with you.
