Integrative nutrition is the practice of considering every aspect of health, diet, and overall lifestyle when giving nutrition recommendations. Integrative nutrition follows an approach to health care that takes into consideration how interrelated every part of the body is. This strategy seeks to look at the big picture of health by restoring physiological functioning.
With integrative nutrition, symptoms are seen as whispers which leads the practitioner to the root cause of your primary health issues, whether they are related to diet, movement, illnesses, medications, natural light, exposure to toxins, antibiotic use or other lifestyle choices.
While standard healthcare will try to suppress these symptoms with medication, integrative nutrition sees them as clues for understanding the underlying issues within the body. By considering the impacts of seemingly unrelated factors on health, integrative nutritionists will put together a holistic health plan that takes every aspect of health into consideration.
For these reasons, integrative nutrition is never one-size-fits-all. Instead, it is a highly customizable holistic health perspective that takes your individual health and supports it’s healing from a cellular level, hence giving your body what it needs to be optimal.
