Holistic nutrition focuses on a natural approach to a healthy diet and considers the individual including all aspects of your lifestyle. This natural approach incorporates emotional, spiritual and physical health to create a state of well-being for optimum health. A holistic approach to proper nutrition encourages education on basic nutrition to develop a holistic diet that incorporates natural and organic foods, natural holistic supplements and food treatments for chronic health conditions.
Significance of Food
The fundamental principle of holistic nutrition is that food provides the energy needed to function properly and supplies the nutrients that are required to build and regenerate bone, muscle, fat and blood. The nutrients obtained from food are essential for the natural processes that constantly take place inside the body. Holistic nutrition involves three main components: macronutrients, which include carbohydrates, protein and fats; micronutrients, which include vitamins and minerals; and fiber. These components all play an important role in how the body functions and are essential to a complete, balanced diet.
Many holistic practitioners such as Naturopathic Doctors, agree that following a diet under the guidelines of holistic nutrition allows people to heal naturally without the use of prescription drugs. Holistic nutrition requires a proper balance of protein, vitamins and other nutrients for optimum health to reach optimum energy levels, emotional well-being and the ability to fight infections. Following the guidelines of proper holistic nutrition can help prevent various health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer. People who are seeing a health care provider for any of these conditions should ask their provider what is right for them before beginning a holistic diet.
Following a holistic nutrition plan has powerful psychological, spiritual and overall health benefits, especially for people who suffer from chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and hormonal dysfunction. A holistic diet strengthens the bones, blood, muscles and vital organs, including the heart, liver, stomach and intestines. Holistic nutrition also follows the belief that physical ailments are directly related to psychological well-being, so developing a healthy and balanced diet helps to relieve stress, memory loss and other mental conditions. Holistic nutrition is designed to heal the body, enrich the mind and cleanse the soul to reach the ultimate healthy lifestyle.
