What is Holistic Nutrition?
Holistic nutrition is the use and preparation of whole, alive, quality foods supplemented with required additional nutrients to provide optimum care to the body. Holistic nutrition considers the whole body – how food and nutrients are digested, absorbed and assimilated, as well as the relationship between food, emotions and spirit.
A Whole Health Approach
As a health conscious population, we are beginning to understand and accept that what we put into our bodies can not and should not be taken lightly. The choices we make effect almost every aspect of our overall health and well being. Our ability to perform, physically and mentally, to battle illness, to deal with stress, and possibly to prevent disease rely on an adequate or perhaps optimal nutritional intake. Ultimately, the cells in our bodies are built from the raw materials we take in. The more suitable our food and nutritional supplement choices are to specific requirements, the better cell structures we can build.
