A holistic nutritionist is a professional trained in natural nutrition and complementary therapies. Mainstream medicine does not recognize the link between poor nutrition and various health conditions. A holistic nutritionist works one-on-one with clients in order to identify the nutritional causes of their health conditions and diseases, and help to re-establish health by bringing the body back to its natural state of healing itself. A holistic nutritionist does this by customizing an individualized diet and lifestyle plan that is designed to address the client’s specific concerns and needs, in order to restore optimal health.
