A natural approach to a healthy diet that includes natural, alive and good quality foods. It uses evidence based methods for diet, lifestyle and detoxification and focuses specifically on the client as opposed to taking a one size fits all approach. Holistic Nutrition takes into account the whole person, including body, mind and spirit and evaluates diet, lifestyle, health history, and the emotional state of an individual to help determine the root of his or her health issues.
A Holistic Nutritionist can help you to reach your personal health goals such as lose weight, sleep better, prevent disease, switch to a specific type of diet such as plant based or gluten free, go organic, manage stress, etc. But, can also help you to overcome health issues/concerns by helping to bring the body back into homeostasis or balance.
I have a primary focus on digestive and gut health but I’m also able to help with a number of other conditions including but not limited to:
A Dietician is a regulated health care professional who mainly works in a clinical setting, such as hospitals, nursing homes, medical clinics, public health units, or as part of home care services provided by the government. Some dieticians specialize in weight-loss or work with in athletic settings and Dieticians also start their own clinics or practices. They offer advice on nutrition and diet based on government sanctioned food protocols, in order to reduce the symptoms of disease or to help you reach your health goals.
In Singapore, Holistic Nutritionists are not regulated by the government but do have industry regulations in place and conduct ourselves on a code of ethics and must stay within our scope of practice. Because we are not regulated by government policy, we do not work in the government sector or in hospitals and instead at the grass roots level with individuals, families, groups, communities and even in the corporate sector. We also work alongside Naturopathic Doctors, Chiropractors, Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners, and Herbalists. Our approach to nutrition is based on the use of symptomatology and looking at the whole person, including medical history, current diet, stress levels and emotional wellbeing to offer a personalized nutritional plan, individual to the client to help bring the body back into balance.
Each insurance company and plan is unique in the services that it will cover. If seeing a Holistic Nutritionist is contingent upon insurance being available, I recommend that you call your insurance provider directly to ask them if they cover Nutritionist (not Dietician or Naturopathic) services before making an appointment. After each session, I provide a receipt that contains all relevant information to send to your insurance company.
