Holistic Nutrition is the use of everyday nutrition and eating habits to improve one’s health. Nutrition and lifestyle play a much bigger role in health, healing, and medicine than they get credit for. It’s about the way we eat, exercise, sleep, work, age, and almost every other aspect of our lives.
Mainstream medicine can sometimes miss the fact that poor nutrition can be one of the major contributors to a wide range of health issues as food does not nourish the physical body alone; our minds and consciousness are not divided from the physical self. Our bodies have a tremendous ability to heal and Holistic Nutrition gives the body the food and energy it needs to attain and maintain optimal health.
Holistic Nutrition can help with digestive issues, food allergies, candida, disordered eating, joint or muscle pain, stress, insomnia, low energy, adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalance, skin issues, etc.
Each person must be treated differently and uniquely because we are all unique individuals. Someone may have similar symptoms as another person, but how he or she developed these symptoms and how he or she will heal is unique to them. We literally are what we eat, digest, and assimilate. It becomes clear, then, that there is no diet that is right for everyone all of the time.
The billion-dollar industry of marketing food products has also made it very difficult to know what is healthy and what isn’t. No matter how technically advanced we are, our digestive system has not adapted as quickly.
With that said, WHOLE FOODS ARE THE KEY TO HEALTH!!! Eat food your grandmother or your great-grandmother would recognize. Go back at least 60 years, to a time where Type II Diabetes was rare.
