What is Holistic Nutrition?

What is Holistic Nutrition?

The practice of holistic nutrition is in its infancy and many people are not exactly sure what it means but basically holistic nutrition is about supporting the body through healthy food and eating habits. Find out more on what holistic nutrition is and how it can help your body function more optimally.

Holism

The theory of holism is one that states the universe and living nature interacts as a whole, not just the little parts here and there. In other words, the whole works better together than apart as separate entities. Holistic refers, then, to the integration of mind, body, and spirit. Holistic nutrition is focused on healing the body around mental, emotional, environmental, and spiritual states which contributes to overall health and wellbeing.

Becoming Whole

A holistic practitioner recognizes the intricate nature of the balance the body, mind, and spirit take when helping people overcome illness and maximizing health. A holistic nutritionist specializes in the application of food and a healthy diet to promote physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This promotes a balanced way of eating that takes into full consideration one’s current health, belief system, heritage, goals, and tastes.

Inside Out

A lot of what holistic nutrition focuses on is how to teach people what to eat, how to eat better, and also navigate health of the mind, body, and soul. When a person is able to learn how to navigate all these areas of their life, they can learn to implement them slowly. Over time, they will begin to integrate them into their lifestyle and focus on healing from the inside out. It is a challenge when there is addiction and mental health issues at play. A person who works with individuals in recovery should understand the nuances involved in helping people navigate recovery while also being aware of the role nutrition plays in the mind, body, and soul.

Holistic nutrition is about focusing on overall health and wellness. It is about getting nutrition up to par so the body has a chance to heal itself and maintain healthy balance. When the body is in balance, everything is aligned and working properly. When one system or area is out of whack, everything feels out of whack. Learning to bring it into balance with nutrition and healthy living helps keep it aligned for optimal health.
