"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease."
-World Health Organization
What exactly does it mean to approach your health by way of Holistic Nutrition?
Well, it's not just changing what you eat.
Holism has more to do with how you feed your whole self, looking at the whole body, through all your senses. Even and especially the subtle senses.
How do we go about doing that?
Well, we usually start with examining you eat. Or at least how you think about what you eat, or even why you eat.
Do you eat for necessity? Comfort? Or vitality?
How do you feel when you eat?
Confronting these questions will help us to get to underlying patterns that affect the habits you have around eating. Once we can move beyond your habits, we create space for intention.
Why are patterns important?
Patterns work on a subtle plane, just like nature. They form from repeating physical actions over long spans of time. So, while food affects our gross senses and plays a heavy roll in our health, it's the habits we have around our mind, body, and spirit that affect our subtle senses, or our subconsciousness, where we hold our beliefs about life. So while healing may begin on a gross physical level, its' magic occurs on the subtle plane.
