What is a Holistic Nutritionist?
R.H.N.s™ (Registered Holistic Nutritionists™) 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. They work with clients to identify and help correct the nutritional causes of diseases, and they are qualified to design personalized diet and lifestyle programs that optimize health. A Holistic Nutritionist or Holistic Nutritional Consultant has as their first goal, prevention of illness and disease, and education for the promotion of health and vitality.
When symptoms do present, a holistic approach is taken to deal with the whole person. A practioner's goal is getting to the root cause of the illness or imbalance to help the body heal itself. After a comprehensive lifestyle and nutrition analysis is completed, recommendations are based on a variety of symptoms that represent the early stages of illness before they develop into more serious problems. Holistic Nutritionists consider not only food quality and nutrition, but also stress levels, exercise, and lifestyle.
Since everyone is biochemically unique, Holistic Nutritionists deal with each person individually, offering recommendations specific to their personal needs. No two people are ever treated the same. Your consultant will make suggestions for lifestyle changes, food choices and nutritional supplements. A balance of vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrients and proteins, as well as physical activity, and mental and spiritual well-being, are needed to achieve optimum health. Each individual is unique and requires different amounts of these elements to make one healthy. The holistic health approach encompasses Body, Mind and Spirit, to achieve maximum health benefits.
Holistic Nutritionists look at the long-term impact and implications of additives, preservatives, pesticides, and antibiotics, and are critical of short-term studies that suggest these chemicals are safe for human consumption.
