Therapeutic Holistic Nutrition
This refers to not only eating healthy foods, as close to their natural state as possible, the way God design them, in order to achieve optimum health and well-being, but also selecting herbs, spices and nutrients that actually improve any physical, mental, or emotional problems that you may have. This approach to eating purposely pays attention to everything that is consumed and focuses on improving your health, above all else. God created food not only to fuel, but also heal. As Hippocrates once said “Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food.” We fully embrace and promote this attitude.
Therapeutic holistic nutrition involves much more than a holistic approach to food choices; it encompasses the care and feeding of the whole person, learning, comprehending, and incorporating the nutriments you need, which has profound effects not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. At its most profound level, health is not is not just the absence of pain, stress, or disease, but also an abundance of vitality, passion and purpose. It is the daily experience of wholeness and balance, a state of being fully alive. Getting to this state can begin with conscious, mindful food choices. You must always remember, your dis “ease”, often times becomes your disease. Therapeutic holistic nutrition, reaches beyond the conventional approaches of dieting and calorie counting, and blends a variety of approaches concerning cuisine and nutrients. It blends traditional and ancient food wisdom from cultures around the world, with modern scientific discoveries. With this approach you can individualize what works best nutritionally for each person. Different illnesses, conditions or diseases have different nutritional requirements and each responds to diet and nutrition uniquely. The underlying principles of therapeutic holistic nutrition are nourishment, mindfulness, awareness and nutritional and environmental responsibility. It helps us to better understand food and appreciate it as an instrument of personal healing. Nourishing ourselves according to holistic nutrition principles becomes a wise, mature, and loving act of self-care. If you want to learn more, please feel free to Contact Us!
