The term “holistic” is often used to describe health care that takes into account the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. This type of care is based on the principle that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In other words, treating the whole person – rather than just their symptoms – is more likely to lead to lasting results. A holistic approach to health and wellness takes into account all aspects of a person’s life, including their diet, lifestyle, and relationships. It also recognizes that each person is unique and therefore requires an individualized approach.
If you are looking for a more holistic approach to your health and wellness, then you may want to consider seeing a holistic nutritionist. Keep reading to learn more about what a holistic nutritionist can do for you!

Understanding Holistic Nutrition Holistic nutrition is a holistic approach to health and wellness that focuses on how food and lifestyle choices can impact an individual’s overall health. It incorporates the notion that what we eat affects all aspects of our life and can have both positive and negative effects on our physical and mental health. Unlike traditional nutrition, holistic nutrition offers an individualized approach to nutrition that focuses on a person’s individual needs and circumstances. It is based on the idea that each person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. Holistic nutritionists consider all aspects of an individual’s life, such as their diet, lifestyle, and relationship with food, when helping them develop a personalized plan to achieve their wellness goals.

The importance of Working with a Holistic Nutritionist: Choosing to work with a holistic nutritionist can be an invaluable experience for anyone looking to make lasting change in their health and wellness. Working with a professional means that you will get personalized guidance and advice tailored to your individual needs, as holistic nutritionists understand that food choices and lifestyle habits should be tailored to each individual. At the same time, a holistic nutritionist will offer objective guidance regarding how best to meet your health and wellness goals. Unlike friends or family members, a holistic nutritionist can offer you unbiased advice about nutrition and lifestyle changes, as well as provide support and motivation during times of difficulty. Additionally, a holistic nutritionist will provide you with the tools and resources you need to make lasting change. They will also be able to explain why certain foods or lifestyle changes are important and how they can help you reach your goals.

What to Expect During Your First Visit: When you visit a holistic nutritionist for the first time, they will likely ask you to fill out a form detailing your current health and wellness goals and any dietary restrictions or allergies you may have. This information helps them create an individualized plan for you based on your needs and circumstances. During your session, the nutritionist will likely ask you questions about your diet, lifestyle, and habits related to food and nutrition. This helps them get a better picture of your overall health and lifestyle and helps them tailor your personalized plan to meet your health and wellness goals.

How a Holistic Nutritionist Can Help You Achieve Your Wellness Goals: The primary goal of a holistic nutritionist is to help you build a healthy relationship with food, as well as to guide you in making healthier lifestyle choices. They will provide guidance and support to help you reach your wellness goals, such as reducing stress, managing chronic health conditions, managing weight , improving energy levels, and more. Using evidence-based resources, a holistic nutritionist can create meal plans and shopping lists to help you get started on the right path. They can also provide you with educational resources to help you understand nutrition labels and ingredient lists. Finally, they can teach you techniques to help you manage stress and practice mindful eating.

Conclusion: Ultimately, working with a holistic nutritionist can be an invaluable experience and is an excellent way to take a more holistic approach to your health and wellness. By taking into account all aspects of your life and developing a personalized plan to meet your individual needs, a holistic nutritionist can help you make lasting change in your health and wellness so you can live a healthier, happier life.

Formal Consultation and Blueprint

You’re super serious about your health goals and are eager to see results soon! Perfect!
A formal consultation is the first step in this process.

If you sign up for a formal consultation, you will receive a detailed questionnaire to fill out which I use to create a customised nutrition plan or formalised blueprint for you to follow.

I analyse your answers and the metrics you’ve recorded to define goals, calories, energy balance, macronutrients, deficits and surplus. I look at micro level detailing of your eating habits and patterns and suggest foods to add or delete based on your preferences, via a formalised blueprint.

The Blueprint will also include suggestions for eating frequency, windows and patterns. It will suggest pre and post workout nutrition options and recommend supplementation based on any deficits that show up in your questionnaire. Styles and frequency of training are also recommended.

The goal is to create a sustainable short and long term strategy to ensure you’re always in optimal health.

After creating the blueprint, a consultation call is arranged during which we go through the blueprint together. I explain macros and the role of hormones in overall health and take care of any comments, concerns or questions you may have. Once we’re aligned on the route forward, the Blueprint is sent to you.

This Blueprint will serve as the guide through your transformation journey.
