Holistic. What does that mean when attached to nutrition?

Whole food? Yes.
Whole person? Yes.
Wholeness? Yes.

Here’s the “professional” definition:

“The philosophy that health is a complex interplay of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of one’s being. Holistic nutrition approaches health and healing from a whole-person perspective. Using nutrition education as a primary tool, emphasizing the building of health by approaching each person as a unique individual.” – National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP)

There’s a group of us who are interested in learning about nutrition … just because the subject is interesting to us. But the majority become interested in nutrition out of necessity. Whatever category you fall into the holistic approach to nutrition offers these amazing distinctives!

Holistic nutrition is:

  • Education based vs. Marketing based
  • Person centered vs. Program centered
  • Wellness driven vs. Illness driven
  • Root cause vs. Symptom control
  • Path creating vs. Plan following
  • Lifestyle vs. Limited time
  • Framework vs. Specific diet
  • Customized vs. Cookie cutter
  • Pulling potential vs. Pushing agendas
  • Freedom vs. Dependence

E! Discovery Club emphasizes the unique and powerful connection between nutrition and wellbeing in every aspect of our person from a Christian, faith-based perspective! Nutrition impacts physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. And our spiritual, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing impact our nutrition.

It’s all connected. This connection is both – Outside In and Inside Out…
