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

  • Foods to eat

    We wouldn't be very good holistic nutritionists if we didn't give you a list of foods to support you.

  • When to eat

    One way to get results isn't just about what you eat but when and how you eat.

  • Plan of success

    Do you need a more of plan to succeed? Our Holistic nutritionist can create one for you

  • Accountability

    Having monthly sessions for 2-3 months with your holistic nutritionist allows you to stay accountable with your change while you see progress, learn new tricks, and feel comfortable when you don't need us.

  • Knowledgeable

    Let our holistic nutritionist geek out on the nutrition books, studies, and articles while you just enjoy the food.

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%.

  • Get Healthy

    Do you feel that you're not living and feeling as best as you could? Do you have troubles concentrating, struggle with constipation or diarrhea, or don't feel rested after sleep? We can create a plan for you to start feeling yourself again or living up to your potential.

  • Improved Mental Health

    Did you know that anxiety and depression are correlated to inflammation? We love talk therapy but it can only do so much if you have inflammation, poor digestive health, or can't sleep through the night.There's a reason that anxiety/depression, diarrhea/constipation, and skin issues are related.

  • Improved Digestion

    Do you have troubles with certain foods or struggle to get to the bathroom in time? You may have dysbiosis and a problematic gut microbiome

  • Improved Brain Health

    How's your concentration, ADHD, or productivity going? Do you want to be able to remember things, have better focus, and be able to concentrate on tasks?

Our Results

Speak for thelmselves

Our holistic nutritionist works with you to create a plan that you’ll do. It can be from a few suggestions to start feeling better to a full holistic recovery program.

How do we get you better?

These are the major factors that go into optimal health. This is what we focus on as holistic nutritionists in Victoria. You don’t have to choose an area, we do all the hard work to give you a simple plan to meet your goals

  • Gut and Digestive health

    Optimal gut health has become a prominent focus in todays health. The links between chronic illness and an imbalanced microbiome keep growing and can't be overlooked. Our gut is critical to our health, this is one of the first things we start with. 90% of our serotonin, 400x more melatonin and 70% of our immune system is in our gut

  • Inflammation and immune balance

    When your immune system is out of balance, inflammation can run rampant. This is similar to a soldering fire inside you that contributes to disease and even weight gain. Putting out this fire is a key aspect to our approach. Inflammation is linked to mood disorders and seems to be a large root of all chronic disease.

  • Hormones

    Most of us are living out of harmony with our biological rhythms. Two small but powerful molecules that we depend on to keep us in balance but may be running haywire are hormones and neurotransmitters.

  • Detoxification

    It's more than just drinking one of those "detox tea" (which don't work) Detoxification is the science of how our bodies get rid of waste. If waste builds up, we get sick. The key becomes figuring out how to enhance our body’s capacity to detoxify and get rid of the waste

What to expect

These are a few questions that we commonly see with our holistic nutrition clients. While we use nutrition as a staple to feel better, it’s not the only thing that we use to get you results. You don’t have to give up your favourite foods if you’re not ready

  • When will I see first results?

    It depends! You can results in a few days depending what you're looking for but you should be able to see results in a couple of weeks and the major changes in 1-2 months

  • Will I have your help?

    Heck yes! We're available via email and phone if you are stuck or have questions

  • Are your programs safe fo my health?

    I work with you, your doctor, and any medications that you're on to provide the safest program we can!

  • Do you focus on weight loss?

    If you are strictly wanting to lose weight, I'm not the best person for that. Though weight loss is common, it's a secondary marker and not the main focus. I'd be glad to refer you to a holistic nutritionist that focuses on that. I would suggest looking at Noom.com.

  • Do I have to exercise?

    You don't have to do anything you don't want to but exercising has too many benefits not to be suggested. I find ways to make exercise fun or not have it feel like a chore!

  • Will I have any restrictions?

    I never tell what you can and can't have, I'm not your parent. I may offer suggestions of something to eliminate but no, you don't have to give up your cheese, chocolate, or wine

  • I don't want to change my diet yet

    That's fine! I might suggest a few foods to add but there are other aspects in your life that can still give you results

  • Do i have to count calories

    No. I believe counting calories makes it harder to have a healthy relationship with food. I may show you how to find appropriate portions but I won't get you to count calories

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.

Yes!

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.

For more information, you can look at CSNN and the Registered dietitians websites

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.
