Hey, I’m Becca and I’m a holistic nutritionist.
Holistic Nutrition has really grown in popularity over the years. And I think it’s amazing that so many more people are open to a more natural approach to their health.
But Holistic Nutrition – what does that even mean?
It’s not all woo-woo, crystals and kale like many people are led to believe…
(Though not going to lie, I do love all of those things!)
Holistic Nutrition is a preventative approach to health. It’s about being the healthiest you can be – physically, mentally and spiritually – and establishing optimal health (which is a very individual thing and looks different for everyone so there isn’t really a fad diet to follow or a one size fits all solution that to follow or recommend).
Optimal health is feeling your very best (and who wouldn’t want to start feeling your very best?!).
Optimal health is a lifestyle and a mindset.
Holistic Nutrition is definitely more of a back-to-basics approach (think eat more whole foods and fewer processed, refined and modified food products) that’s combined with science-based techniques and recommendations for lifestyle and diet.
It’s also a root-cause practice. Holistic nutrition looks to address the root cause of the symptom or problem and why it’s happening as opposed to just using a band-aid solution to address that single symptom that’s bothering you. The holistic approach considers the complete health history, emotional state and current lifestyle and nutrition habits of the individual to determine imbalances in the body that are contributing to the symptom and then actively works towards correcting those imbalances with diet, lifestyle, and supplements suggestions.
Holistic Nutrition is so much more than counting calories, tracking carbohydrates or following a specific eating plan – it’s about finding what works for you and tailoring that to suit your needs, likes and goals. This approach is all about balance and making choices that are right for you right now and fitting those into your lifestyle (and acknowledging that what worked for you in the past might not work now and that’s ok!).
As a holistic nutritionist, I consider myself to be an educator in wellness (specifically for women with PCOS) and I use a whole body, real food and optimal health lifestyle approach to helping women with PCOS live an Always Nourished life.
I am here to inspire you to do the same and eat better to feel better every step of the way!
For me, I consider the foods I eat and put into my body just as important as the environment around me and what I put on my body and that’s why I also choose non-toxic, environmentally friendly household and personal products as well (and I encourage you to do the same!).
Health is so much more than a healthy recipe or how much kale you eat in a day; it’s the whole picture and the body, mind and spirit must all be included.
And that is exactly what Holistic Nutrition is all about!
How Did I Become A Holistic Nutritionist
Becoming a holistic nutritionist was about 10 years in the making for me. You can read more about my story and credentials here (and if you’re suffering from PCOS you might be able to relate to my PCOS journey here).
I became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist after completing the Natural Nutrition program from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN). Program requirements include finishing (and assessment upon completion) of the Natural nutrition program courses, preparing multiple extensive case studies and follow-ups, writing a comprehensive final exam and achieving a minimum overall average of 80% in order to successfully graduate (CSNN only then grats the R.H.N. designation).
As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, I abide by a strict code of ethics and scope of practice.
How Can I Help You?
I’m here to help women manage their PCOS with food so that they can stop the PCOS struggle, take control of their symptoms and finally start feeling like themselves again (because relying on the Pill is not the only option!).
I work with women one-on-one and as part of my group programs. I also offer self-paced educational products and programs to help you take control of your PCOS naturally.
If we are a good fit to work together and you enroll as a client (either as a one-on-one or part of a group program), we meet to discuss your health goals, talk about your unique health history and PCOS journey and I will evaluate your nutritional needs while keeping a special focus on balancing hormones and blood sugar and reducing inflammation (the key factors that are likely affecting your PCOS in the first place).
In addition to my signature PCOS protocols, I will provide you with individualized recommendations for nutrition, lifestyle and, if appropriate, natural health products and supplements to help you achieve your health goals.
I am here to empower and lead you through this incredible transformation and provide accountability and support along the way.
Taking the steps to radically change your life is really challenging and hard and also beautiful and incredibly worth it and I am here to help you along the way.
My area of specialty at the moment includes only women who are struggling with PCOS.
