Holistic Nutritionist FAQ

Q: What is a C.N.P.?

 

CNP stands for Certified Nutritional Practitioner and is a diploma in Applied Holistic Nutrition. A holistic nutritionist is a specialized health care professional who helps clients improve their health using natural foods and products instead of curing isolated symptoms. Working with a holistic nutritionist is complementary to your primary healthcare providers such as a physician or a naturopathic doctor.

CNPs can provide customized nutrition and lifestyle support to help clients achieve their optimal well-being. For example, my service includes the following aspects:

  • Evaluating clients’ lifestyle and nutrition status

  • Introducing healthy eating habits and healing foods

  • Creating personalized meal and grocery plans

  • Developing stress management skills

  • Educating people on holistic wellness

 

Q: What are your education and background?

 

CNPs have over 700 hours of lectures in the following subject areas :

  • Nutrition & Pathophysiology

  • Herbal Medicine

  • Anatomy & Body Metabolism

  • Preventive Health Care

  • Biochemistry

  • Holistic Food Preparation
     

I have over 150 hours of clinical experience in:

  • Creating personalized supplement protocols and menu plans

  • Designing client education templates

  • Processing and accessing safe and effective protocols

  • Helping clients with food sensitivities, hormone imbalances, weight management, neurological disorders

  • and adrenal fatigue

 

How am I different from other nutrition coaches?

 

In addition to my training as a holistic practitioner, I have a solid background in nutritional science. I’m a B. Sci. (Hon.) in Food, Nutrition and Health. The scope of my curriculum and training includes:

  • Vitamins, Minerals & Health

  • Nutrition Assessment

  • Food Theory

  • Biochemistry

  • Advanced Nutritional Research

  • Psychology & Family Education.
     

I use knowledge and experience from both fields to provide the most comprehensive support for my clients. My recommendations and meal plans are based on science and they are personalized to my client’s unique metabolism and lifestyle.
 

When should I consider working with a holistic nutritionist?

 

If you have frustrations with your health issues, a nutritionist will help you navigate the root cause of your problem and help you find natural methods for symptomatic relief. Currently, the “Nutritionist” designation is not regulated. Look for certified credentials such as C.N.P. (certified nutritional practitioner).

 

If I were to work with you, what would that look like? What can you do for me? 

 

I want to support you to live and feel your absolute best. I will help you find the answers to your unique questions and provide you with insights and tips to help you achieve optimal health. I believe a healthy and balanced lifestyle needs to include food you love. I create effective and actionable plan to keep you balanced and on track.
