Holistic nutrition identifies the nutrient imbalances in your body and recommends strategies to reintroduce those nutrients in to the body, so the body can heal itself. It recognizes that we are all unique, and that what works for one person is not always effective for another. Issues such as dietary preferences, lifestyle and current health conditions must all be considered when creating a food plan for a life of health and vitality.
The first wealth is health.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your body was designed to function on carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals that come from whole unprocessed foods. What makes whole foods unique is that they contain phytonutrients, or plant chemicals, that provide valuable antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to our diet, both vitally important in the maintenance of good health, and woefully absent in much of the food that is consumed in today's diets.
When your body receives insufficient amounts of these beneficial nutrients, and they are instead replaced with nutrient poor refined and processed foods, our body begins the slow and often subtle decline to poor health.
Your body's nutritional needs are as unique as you are, and the first step towards wellness is to be sure you are getting the correct amounts of the proper nutrients in the form of whole foods. Holistic nutrition considers the nutrients you need to improve the state of your health, ward off disease, and maintain a harmonious balance in the way nature intended.
