Holistic Nutrition

What is Holistic Nutrition

Holistic Nutritionists focus on promoting health, while other professionals in the industry focus on managing disease. They treat clients as individuals and aim to improve their overall well-being by identifying the root cause of health issues and creating a personalized plan. They educate clients on supplements, healthy eating, exercise, and self-care. They recognize that each person is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to health.

Holistic Nutritionists VS Registered Dietitians

Holistic Nutritionists take a holistic approach to health and wellness, considering a person's overall well-being and lifestyle factors, such as stress and environmental exposure. They may use complementary and alternative therapies, in addition to diet, to help clients achieve optimal health.

On the other hand, Registered Dietitians focus on the science of nutrition and to develop individualized meal plans for clients with specific health needs or conditions. They work in clinical or institutional settings and provide nutrition education to the public.
