What is Holistic Nutrition, and How Can it Improve Your Health?

List: Posted: 10/07/11

Holistic medicine is a way of treating the entire person in order to combat illness.  Holistic nutrition is the way of balancing the nutrients in the body in order to achieve the best physical and emotional well-being. 


Many nutritionists and doctors are becoming more aware of the mind and body connection.  It is important to understand that the body and the mind are not separate, but deeply interwoven.  In order to feel good, both the body and mind must be properly cared for.  When one or the other is out of sync, the person will feel ill, either physically or mentally.


The proper food choices are essential in keeping the body and mind properly balanced. Following holistic nutrition practices can help you reduce the risk of some illnesses and can even help to heal some diseases.  While all medical conditions should be checked out by a doctor, you can also try to balance your nutrition to help the body take care of the problem itself.


The importance of overall health cannot be overstated.  If you are suffering from any medical condition, it is essential to provide your body with the nutrients necessary to properly fight against it.


To follow this practice, it is helpful to seek the advice of a nutritionist if you have health issues, either mental or physical.  Eat as many natural foods as possible.  Processed foods lose many of their nutrients and often contain products that are harmful.  Local farmers markets and organic food stores are the best places to find locally grown foods that have a high nutritional content.  Ensure that your diet contains all the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients in order to have a balanced intake.
