Complementary medicine is a quickly growing health care field in which holistic nutrition plays a key role. Western medicine sometimes overlooks the incredible healing power of food and the significant effect that diet has on our overall health and well-being. And because there is an overwhelming abundance of health information and often misleading advertising in the media, it can be difficult to make healthy choices for you and your family. Luckily, a doctor of naturopathic medicine can help you navigate the vast array of information so you can make informed decisions that will leave you feeling energized and free from health imbalances.
What is Holistic Nutrition?
Holistic Nutrition looks at your body as a whole considering the physical, environmental, emotional and nutritional components of your life. It is based on the principle that every individual is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all solution or diet. Holistic Nutrition is a natural and gentle approach that assesses your needs and educates you on how to achieve optimal nutrition and energy. It promotes eating a whole foods diet, living a vibrant lifestyle and thriving in an environment free from toxins.
A consultation with a doctor of naturopathic medicine will include a medical history intake, a conversation regarding your current state of health and a discussion about your health goals. You will receive custom nutritional advice, lifestyle recommendations, advice on high quality supplements, and the resources that you require to achieve your goals and heal your body.
