Holistic Nutrition

nutritionThere is a saying that goes:

When  health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest,  strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless and intelligence cannot be  applied.”

Whether  you are looking to prevent disease in the future or combat illness  today, food and nutrition plays an important part in how we look, feel  and be.

 

Why a holistic nutritionist?. Most nutritionists and dietitians will offer practical suggestions and goals to improve and enhance your health and wellbeing through food and nutrition, However, I go a step further and where necessary use my skills and qualifications as a Dietitian, naturopath, health coach and NLP practitioner to get to the physical, mental or emotional reasons as to why you may not be feeling the best you can be or choosing the right diet and so forth. Of course this will depend on your own individual and personal needs.

Let’s take weight management as an example…as well as working with you to plan a healthy and nutritious meal plan and develop an activity/exercise plan to assist you in losing weight, we will also discover if you have developed any metabolic imbalances and correct them. These imbalances may include hormonal, adrenal, thyroid, neurotransmitter, digestive or systemic inflammation imbalances that makes losing weight and maintaining healthy weight extremely challenging despite your best efforts to eat less and exercise more. We will also address any emotional issues causing overeating or reaching for the less healthy foods.

By addressing both the physical and emotional issues of your weight gain we are much more successful in reaching long term and sustainable weight loss

What to expect from a consultation
A private consultation with Sheena will vary depending on the individual and personal needs of each client. In general we may cover;

  • Personal nutrition counseling for food-related illness or health enhancement.
  • Answers to your food and lifestyle questions.
  • Shopping trips to help understand which foods to buy, reading food labels and so forth.
