What is Holistic Nutrition?

Holistic Nutrition supports your physical, emotional, and mental health by focusing on whole, natural foods that, as much as possible, are organic and sourced locally.

My philosophy is one of balance. I believe that the best nutrition for my clients balances what is ideal with what is practical, affordable, and enjoyable for them. This facilitates sustainable changes that, over time, help to improve health, wellness and quality of life. I have learned how being my most-nourished self also means my healthiest, happiest, and most balanced self. When I feel my best, I can live life to its fullest. You will, too.

What is the difference between a Nutritionist and a Dietitian?

Certified Nutritionists (NNCP, RHN) and Registered Dietitians (RD) both provide responsible nutrition advice to help you maintain or improve your health.  Your health goals may be a healthy weight, managing health conditions, or preventing disease. Nutritionists and Dietitians both work to help you achieve your health goals but have different educational paths and roles within the healthcare system.

As a Holistic Nutritionist, my role is to educate, provide nutritional counselling, and to focus on whole natural foods to help you accomplish your health goals. My training also includes integrated wellness topics including lifestyle changes and self-care. Dietitians are regulated healthcare professionals with training geared towards clinical work within a hospital setting, research and public health.

Choosing a nutrition practitioner that is right for you depends on their overall experience and what level of ongoing support they provide.  Having support along your journey is essential to lasting success. Above all, you should look for a nutrition practitioner that is committed to ongoing professional development, and, that their philosophy of personal wellness aligns with yours.

Are your services covered by my insurance plan?

Yes, my services are covered by several major insurance carriers.  However, individual health plans vary widely so I advise you to check with your plan administrator. The natural nutrition industry, its professional associations, and experienced wellness professionals are working hard to influence the entire insurance industry to cover our services. Concept Nutrition’s programs and services are designed to be affordable and offer good value regardless of insurance coverage.  Remember, your health is priceless!

Do you offer services by telephone or video chat?

Yes.  I absolutely do!  I can provide support through email, over the phone or by video call – Whichever works best for you.  I can offer this service whether you are local or far away. It’s a small world, after all!

What is Holistic Nutrition?

Good nutrition is key to optimal health and can improve one’s physical, emotional and mental health.  Holistic Nutrition focuses on whole, natural foods that are organic and sourced locally (as much as possible).  Holistic Nutrition emphasizes the interconnectedness of Mind, Body and Spirit – nourishing the WHOLE you.

My personal philosophy balances the ideal and what is practical, affordable and enjoyable for you.  It is impossible to be perfect all the time and who wants to be? By making small sustainable changes you can make a big difference to your health, wellness and quality of life.  I believe if you let the concepts of holistic nutrition guide your choices you will become the most nourished version of yourself.  And when you feel your best you can live life to its fullest.

What is the difference between a Nutritionist and a Dietician?

Certified Nutritionists (NNCP, RHN) and Registered Dietitians (RD) both provide responsible nutrition advice to help you maintain or improve your health.  Whether that be to help you find a healthy weight, manage current health conditions or educate you in the prevention of disease.  Their duties are very similar in private practice.   The main difference is their roles within the healthcare system and the educational path to attain their qualifications. The training of a holistic nutritionist is geared towards nutritional counselling, education and working in a private practice.  It also encompasses broader topics of integrated wellness such as life style and self care. Dietitians are regulated healthcare professionals with training geared towards both private practice and clinical work within a hospital setting, research and public health.

To choose a practitioner that is right for you consider their overall experience and what level of ongoing support they provide.  Having support along your journey is essential to lasting success. Ensure that they are committed to ongoing professional development and, most importantly, that their philosophies around wellness align with your own.

Are your services covered by my insurance plan?

Several major insurance carriers offer coverage for natural nutritional counselling.  But individual health plans vary widely so it is best to check with your plan administrator. The natural nutrition industry, its professional associations and credible wellness professionals are working hard to influence the entire insurance industry to cover our services.   But rest assured I have designed my programs and services to be affordable and offer good value for individuals regardless of insurance coverage.  Remember, your health is priceless!

Do you offer services by telephone or video chat?

Yes.  I absolutely do!  I can provide support through email, over the phone or by video call – Whichever works best for you.  I can offer this service whether you are local or far away. It’s a small world, afterall!
