What is holistic nutrition?

It assesses an individual's physical and mental health when creating a blue print to manage the issue (disease & symptoms) based on nutritional principles.

It's more than throwing a list of super foods at a health problem like cinnamon, if you have diabetes. Your body is way more complex than that, so it requires a combination of actions to maintain a healthy balance.  

It starts with food, not just what you are eating; how often, how you feel after eating, and branches out to holistic health - stress, sleep, energy, exercise, trauma, selfcare, lifestyle, psycho-spiritual (meditation to religion).

Holistic nutrition isn't a new fad, as Hippocrates (father of medicine) lectures about the healing power of nature.  He was famously known for "let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food" to encourage self-healing efforts. Holistic nutrition became a renewed interest in North America in the 1970s.  In 1975,  the first holistic health conference was held in California.
