I have many people ask how is a Holistic Nutritionist different than a Dietician and a Nutritionist in a hospital. Dieticians are clinicians. Their jobs are regulated because they measure out formulations, which could cause harm if they are not educated in procedures. A Dieticians scope of practice is limited. Limited to what is expected in a hospital environment or clinical environment.
A Registered Holistic Nutritionist is not regulated in that way because of our scope of practice. Being registered does mean we are expected to keep undated and attend conferences and online seminars to keep updated.
You will find Holistic nutritionists working alongside Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Chiropractors, and other health care professionals.
What does a Registered Holistic Nutritionist do?
We have a coaching role. We offer practical strategies, and offer ongoing support. We help incorporate lifestyle changes. We look at the whole body, the mind, spirit component (emotional) part of healing.
