“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” ~Thomas Edison

A holistic nutritionist (or a holistic nutritional coach) “focuses on a natural approach to a healthier diet.” The scope of practice for a holistic nutritional coach “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.” (Source) Basically, a holistic nutritional coach focuses solely on “knowledge of the effect of food on anatomy and physiology to create nutrition and supplement-based protocols designed to help clients address health issues, ” unlike holistic health and wellness coaches who focus more on lifestyle and stress management. (Source)

Just like life, health, and wellness coaches, holistic nutritionists do not uphold themselves as licensed nutritionists or registered dietitians – unless credentialed as such. Neither do they act in the capacity of licensed health care providers and thus do not engage in patient diagnosis nor act as licensed therapists. Each of those areas should be handled by its respective licensed and/or credentialed professionals.

Holistic Health/Wellness vs. Holistic Nutritional Coaching

Although many use the terms interchangeably, our distinction is simply. Holistic nutritional coaching involves diving deep into your specific health challenges starting with exploring your health life history up until the present day. In this type of transformational coaching, you must be transparent with your coach and with and about yourself since true healing is hindered if you are unable to face head on where you are and where you are headed if changes aren’t made. Holistic health/wellness coaching is unlike holistic nutritional coaching since it focuses on small and impactful changes for a generalized perspective for health and life improvement. In that type of coaching, you are in the driver’s side, so there is less direction from your coach who acts more like a “tour guide”. One thing we instill in our clients – you will be accountable for your own losses and although we clap for your success, we won’t take credit for your wins! That’s all on you!

Holistic Nutritional Coaching vs Registered Nutritionist

A registered nutritionist is a state-licensed medical professional. In Louisiana, a nutritionist must have a certain level of medical training and passed a credentialed exam qualifying them to use a title like RN (for registered nutrition). We are not licensed or registered nutritionists and do not uphold ourselves as such. We, instead, are nutritional professionals who focus more promoting a healthier lifestyle through improve to one’s diet and everyday lifestyle through holistic evaluations, teaching about eating fresh, healthy foods, advising on health stress management, provide nutritional recommendations for herbals and supplements, and more more.
