Why I chose to study Nutritional Medicine?

I love to teach people how to make real wholefoods taste amazing. Combining this passion with nutritional studies has allowed me to educate people on how to nourish the body and overcome illness and eat foods that may prevent disease.

Nutritionist vs Dietitian

What is the difference between nutritionists and dietitians? It’s a question that I get asked all the time.

Both nutritionists and dietitians have the same view- they want to help people achieve better health and wellbeing with food. Both practice evidence-based medicine, but they each follow different philosophies to achieve this.

Nutritional medicine follows a holistic approach to healing which takes into account the whole person – mind, body and spirit. Nutritionists treat the underlying cause not just the symptoms and acknowledge that what a person is experiencing is caused by a combination of factors.

Dieticians are mainly trained to give evidence-based dietary advice to treat a range of conditions for each person to reach their health goals by turning scientific nutrition knowledge into a diet plan.

Nutritionists mostly work in a private practice with other practitioners that share a similar outlook. Dieticians generally work with population health, hospitals and nursing homes.

Now that we live in a time with rising preventive diseases, I believe there is a role for both nutritionists and dietitians. This allows people to have choice when choosing a practitioner to help them reach their health goals.
