Proper nutrition is the basis for optimum health and well being. Holistic nutrition is based on a diet high in natural, wholesome foods that can aid in the prevention of diseases, the promotion of healing and the achievement of optimal health. Holistic nutrition focuses on a natural approach to a healthy diet and considers the individual as a whole, including all aspects of his/her lifestyle. This natural approach incorporates emotional health, physical health and environmental factors when assessing individual nutritional needs. A holistic approach to nutrition encourages education on proper nutrition to develop a diet that incorporates healthy, organic foods and high quality supplements.
“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” ~Thomas Edison
The goal of holistic nutrition is to live a life of wellness by incorporating a natural, wholesome diet and lifestyle habits resulting in long term optimum health. A diet containing whole foods involves eating natural, alive, and overall good quality food.
✓ Natural unprocessed and unrefined foods, such as whole grains and legumes
✓ Alive foods that still contain live enzymes, such as fruits, vegetables, and sprouts
✓ Good Quality foods are high in quality such as:
Organic Whole Foods – Grown in soil that is rich in essential nutrients without chemical pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers.
Organic Meats – Raised on organically grown feed and not subject to routine use of growth hormones, antibiotics or steroids.
