As a graduate of the Natural Nutrition Program at the Canadian School of Natural Nutritition (CSNN Ottawa Location 2006-2008) I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist.
“Holistic Nutritionists are dedicated professionals who educate individuals about the health benefits of natural nutrition. Holistic nutrition is a special combination of modern science and time-tested wisdom based on the philosophy that each person has unique nutritional requirements. These nutrition professionals recognize that the interactive mind-body-spirit factors are specific to each client and that each must be addressed in order for the client to feel and remain well.”
“Holistic nutritionists assess their clients’ health through one-on-one consultations and focused questionnaires and then provide health and lifestyle recommendations that are tailored to the individual’s needs.
Holistic nutritionists create individual meal plans and recipes for their clients, teach them to decode food labels to help them make optimal food choices, and provide them with food shopping advice and information. Some also provide cooking and food preparation lessons. They assess their client’s stress, exercise, smoking, alcohol consumption, sleep, relaxation and overall lifestyle practices. They monitor their clients’ progress towards their health goals. Most importantly, holistic nutritionists encourage self-responsibility by empowering clients through personalized education and information.”
