A holistic nutritionist is different from a conventional dietitian in several important ways. Their toolkit includes many approaches that allow them to address specific symptoms, identify imbalances and offer nutrition-based wellness programs. This holistic approach often goes beyond food to embrace physical, emotional, environmental and energetic factors that may be affecting a client.
Nutritionists who use muscle testing in their practice can access profoundly relevant information that can provide useful guidance and direction. Using basic techniques like O-ring muscle testing, practitioners can explore many factors that can affect digestion and intestinal function.
The gut is the engine of the body – whole body health relies on the health of the intestinal tract, the microbiome, including what we feed it and how it is challenged. One simple factor that can be worth testing is a client’s drinking water that can provide insight into dehydration or sensitivity to specific contaminants in the water. Clients unable to ‘stomach’ many foods (or raw foods) may respond to rebalancing with signatures in the digestive enzyme kit.

So named in the 17th century after cellula or the tiny rooms used by monks, cells are what all life on Earth is made of. All plants and animals are made of cells, and they are the living foundations of the specialized tissues and organs that they rely on for survival. There are over a hundred different cells in the human body, and they all consist of an outer plasma membrane, nucleus and cytoplasm populated by fibres, membranes and organelles (only blood cells do not contain nuclei and certain organelles such as mitochondria).
A “fluid mosaic model” of the membrane developed in the 1970s offers an understanding of its sophisticated and complex mechanics.
