What is Holistic Nutrition?
You may be wondering what is holistic nutrition?
Why is it important to me if I already eat healthy and exercise?
When you choose to live your life in a holistic manner
You understand that your body is interconnected and works as a whole. You take into consideration that your lifestyle factors intertwine together such as food consumption, activity, psychological and social factors. By doing so, you will be able to better understand your own body's signals and some of the imbalances that you may become mindful of.
One of the key aspects of Holistic Nutrition
Is the process of digestion, absorption and assimilation of nutrients. True health starts in the gut. You can eat kale and spinach until your heart’s desire but if your body cannot absorb or assimilate the nutrients in the food; then it will do you no good.
The Holistic Nutrition viewpoint
Regards everyone as biologically different. What may be good for some, isn’t for others. This is why there is so much contradicting nutrition information available. It can be a daunting process trying to determine who to listen to or trust. It can be downright discouraging. Who's right and who's wrong? What foods to eat and what foods to avoid? The basis of holistic nutrition is the acknowledgement of bio-individuality and building a well balanced body begins by eating whole, fresh food, free of processing and refinement. Consuming food in its natural package where nutrients and nutrient components work in synergy with each other.
The benefit of a holistic approach
Helps you have an understanding of what works for you on your own terms.
