Q:What is the difference between a Holistic Nutritionist and a Registered Dietitcian?
A: Registered Dieticians follow government-regulated nutritional guidelines.

Dieticians do not recommend herbs, supplements, or any other alternative healing methods. A Dietician’s approach is directed mainly toward the population at large
A Holistic Nutritionist must successfully graduate to obtain their Diploma in order to use the RHN designations from Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. His or her nutritional knowledge is based on the belief that each individual is different and therefore no two people should follow the same nutritional advice.

In other words, a Holistic Nutritionist examines the whole person and makes health recommendations accordingly to suit the individual.

Following a holistic nutrition plan has powerful psychological, spiritual and overall health benefits, especially for people who suffer from chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, asthma and tumor growths.

Q: Do I have to take supplements?
A: Yes. We all have genetic weaknesses, including higher needs of some nutrients and higher rates of depletion for certain nutrients. I encourage getting your vitamins, minerals and nutrients mainly from the foods you eat. Although it may not be possible to get all essential vitamins and mineral from the quality of foods we eat a good high quality supplements will be recommended at times.
