What can a holistic nutritionist help with?

Using holistic nutrition, food, and lifestyle changes can skyrocket your results!

There is nothing better than diet, sleep, and exercise to point the health needle in the optimal position.

With every meal, we either feed or starve disease.

The use of diet in health and medicine is often overlooked but not anymore.

More research is going towards the power of diet in improving our health.

Diet seems to be able to help improve all aspects of health but we focus on a few them. We like to think that we do those things very well.

Finding the right holistic nutritionist in Victoria

Finding the right holistic nutritionist can be tricky!

Building trust and collaborating together is the safest, less stressful, and most enjoyable way to reach your goals!

We value relationships. The relationship between you and your holistic nutritionist is vital to your success. We want to know that if you choose us and we work together, we’ll succeed together.

In this day of the confusing information on food, diet, and our health…we need to have someone that we trust for information. Someone that goes into the research and understands how to communicate that effectively to you, that’s what we do.

We’re nerds when it comes to health. 

The inter-relationship to food, lifestyle, and our health is the biggest wheel that we can turn to live a “dis-ease” free live.

How we interact with food and our environment gives us the ability to improve our health, with relative ease. You just need to know what to do, or not to do in some cases

We work best with people that are wanting to change, not sure what to do, or want to change but not ready for a full diet change

Though we are a holistic nutritionist, diet isn’t always the thing that we start with change. We realize that we can still get great results without changing your diet completely. 

This way, if you’re not ready to change your diet, we can still work with you to start feeling better and achieve your goals.

Our approach is simple – we listen to you, ask a lot of questions, and find out what you’re willing AND not willing to do. From there, we create a plan specific to you.

If you don’t want to give up chocolate, cookies, and coffee – don’t! If it’s really bad for you, we’ll let you know but we’re not here to make you feel bad for eating something.

Our goal is to give you every opportunity to feel fucking great and we want to be apart of your health journey

Signing a holistic nutrition contract in victoria bc

When should you see a holistic nutritionist and how often?

It’s important to work with your holistic nutritionist to create a game plan for your situation that isn’t overwhelming, stressful, and anxious producing

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 

You’ll see us at least 3x though, we don’t do the ” one and done” plan approach. It doesn’t work.

People need guidance to start something new, this is why we start with 3 sessions. We do the in-depth initial assessment, and then 2x 60 minute follow-ups about 3-4 weeks apart. During that time in between, you have access us via email for any questions that pop up or struggles that occur.

With whatever your situation is, we work within it, while being open and honest with you. If you have coverage, we will create a plan with you to maximize our efforts together to get you the results that you want

FAQ - Frequently asked questions

Do you have questions about holistic nutrition, about us, or something else?

What is holistic nutrition?

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.

I'm not ready for a full diet change

That’s fine! Most of our clients don’t actually start with a full diet change. We 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.

Do you do meal plans?

No, we don’t. We don’t do a 7-day meal plan but we 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 out for that!

What's the difference between holistic nutrition and dietician?

A Holistic Nutritionist, is a health practitioner trained specifically in nutrition, and nutrition-related interventions – sleep, exercise, mindfullness. 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 ones health and all work together. Though, the term holistic to be increasingly less meaningful, as many practitioners, in many fields today have a holistic perspective.

“Nutritionist” is 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 philopsohy, which relates to the context within which each practice. Holistic Nutritionist 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.
