What is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist?


A Registered Holistic Nutritionist is a professional trained in

natural nutrition and complementary therapies, whose principal

function is to educate individuals and groups about the benefits

and health impact of optimal nutrition.


Mainstream medicine does not emphasize the significance of

poor nutrition as a major cause of a wide range of health

disorders. Although most people are aware of the benefits

of sound nutrition, the range of conflicting information

available to the consumer is often confusing. Holistic nutritionists

guide their clients through the maze of information from books,

magazines, supplements and diets on the market. They work

with clients to identify and help correct the nutritional causes of

diseases, and they are qualified to design personalized diet and

lifestyle programs that optimize health.

(Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, 2012)


Holistic nutritionists recognize that food is so much more than

calories, fats and proteins, and even more than the vitamins

and minerals that it contains. Where, when, and how food was grown, the process it underwent to get to your plate, and the physical and psychological state you are in when you eat it all determine what kind of effect that food will have on your overall health!


How can a Registered Holistic Nutritionist help me with my anxiety, depression, and panic attacks?


A Registered Holistic Nutritionist recognizes that each and every one of us has unique needs and biochemical differences. One type of diet may provide astounding results for one person while doing little to help the other. Even worse, certain foods, diets, and supplements may cause harm to certain individuals. A Holistic Nutritionist will work with you to develop a personalized lifestyle and nutritional protocol that works best for your body, mind, and spirit’s unique needs.


A Holistic Nutritionist can be your teacher, guide, and mentor on your journey to achieving power over your own health and wellness!


I want to get my child to eat a healthier diet, but I don’t know where to start!


It can certainly be difficult to get children to eat good food. With many sugary junk foods advertised to kids and available in their schools, it can become especially challenging to get them to make better choices for their health. With a mostly clean, nutritious diet, kids can still be kids and enjoy the occasional cakes, pizza, and candy at their friend’s birthday party without experiencing any adverse effects.


I would encourage a very gradual approach with children, especially if eating vegetables is something new to them. It is also crucial to lead by example- the whole family needs to change their eating habits together. Involving the child in food selection and preparation can also be very effective.


Whether your child suffers from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, or hyperactivity, holistic nutrition counselling can be very beneficial to your child’s individual needs and desires while incorporating your whole family in the process of living a healthier lifestyle.


What is the difference between regular and organic food?


Certified organic produce is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Organic farmers use ancient practices such as crop rotation to maintain the nutrient integrity of the soil and to keep pests at bay.


Organic meats are from animals who were fed a completely organic diet. These animals were never treated with drugs and antibiotics, and natural methods are used to nurse ill animals back to health.


Because organic foods are grown in nutrient rich soil and grown without harmful pesticides, the quality of the produce is higher as it will provide the body with a higher nutrient content when consumed, and without the toxic chemicals.

Are your services covered under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP)?


Nutritional consulting and other complementary health services are not currently covered under the provincial health plan. However, many private insurance plans cover nutritional services. Please consult with your insurer to determine what coverage you have. A receipt is always provided to you when services are rendered and paid for.


How many follow-up visits will I need?


The amount of follow-up visits you require depends entirely on your individual situation. Our Right Start Program includes 1 follow-up visit, and the rest, if even necessary, will be scheduled as needed.
