So what exactly is holistic nutrition? Holistic nutrition is a way of using your everyday foods to help the body maintain or improve its health status. It is also part of the understanding that everyone is different with different food needs. Mainstream medicine often misses the mark when it comes to considering nutrition’s negative or positive effect on health. Too often food is dismissed as a contributor to many health issues, especially when it comes to gluten and refined sugars. I have personally seen my health improve substantially by removing gluten completely from my diet and by reducing my sugar intake.
Holistic nutrition gives your body a chance to experience real food and the right food for YOU! The body is amazing and should be able to heal itself naturally from many conditions and illnesses. Most health problems begin in the gut, causing gastrointestinal symptoms like bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, IBS, and much more. Eating the wrong foods can lead to causing all kinds of health problems ranging from eczema, food allergies, seasonal allergies, weight gain, autoimmune issues, and the list could go on and on.
Many people have found relief from health challenges by adapting to holistic nutrition including adding in the benefits of more energy and improved health. Here at our clinic, our patients understand how important holistic nutrition is! Holistic nutrition will mostly likely include eliminating foods that are hurting you while learning which foods are best for YOU!
