Here are some frequently asked questions that may help you to understand how I, as a nutritionist, work:
1. How am I different from a dietician? Holistic nutritionists and dieticians are two different certifications that often get confused. To clarify, a dietician is someone who has a certification through an accredited university and likely follows the Canada Food Guide. A holistic nutritionist (like myself) can be certified by private institutions and goes under the title of CNP (Certified Nutritional Practitioner) or RHN (Registered Holistic Nutritionist). Through the Edison Institute of Nutrition, I have completed their Practitioner and Advanced Diploma Programs which included over 50 different courses and approximately 4 years of studies. I also completed a thesis on "Preventive Heart Health Measures for Women: Dietary and Lifestyle Suggestions."
As the term 'holistic' suggests, as a RHN, I will assess individuals, taking into account many mind-body factors, personal to the individual. Each person is unique and different in what they require to keep them healthy and in balance.
2. Why work with me? If you are suffering from any of the following, these come under the umbrella of a nutritionist's care:
menopause issues (peri or post)
3. How long will it take before I feel better? It depends on a number of factors: the condition we are working with; how long you have been suffering from it; what your current stress levels are - to name just a few. Sometimes, psychologically, you may start to feel a bit better right away, just from receiving support and working in a healing relationship. Generally, there is not one answer to this question since everyone is unique and different. It all depends on how quickly your body will start to respond to the new healthy changes we introduce. You may start to feel some relief anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months.
