Holistic Nutrition Resources at the College of Natural Health
Holistic Nutrition focuses on a natural approach to a healthy diet and how to give the body the food and energy it needs to attain and maintain optimal health. It's also about avoiding foods with toxic additives. Holistic Nutrition considers the individual as a whole. Opting for a plant-based diet, such as a vegan diet, vegetarian diet, raw food diet or acid alkaline balance diet is a great way to eliminate unhealthy eating habits, improve your health, boost energy levels and prevent chronic diseases.
Professionals who are trained in Holistic Nutrition advise others on how to improve their diet and lifestyle to prevent disease and promote health. At the College of Natural Health, we believe that everyone deserves to enjoy great health, but most have just never been presented with the right foundation or combination of tools to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

An acid alkaline balance diet is useful for weight loss. It also reduces the strain on the body's acid-detoxification systems. Stress and low energy levels can both be treated with a diet that is acid alkaline balanced.
On a balanced vegetarian diet, most people experience higher energy levels and have less risk of toxicity issues. Vegetarian diets are typically high in fiber and low in total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and calories.
The vegan diet is composed of leafy greens, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts. Vegan diets are cholesterol-free. A vegan's lifespan is typically 7-13 years longer than the average American's.
The raw food diet is based on consuming unprocessed, preferably organic, whole plant-based foods, at least 75 per cent of which should be uncooked. This diet gives you a high energy as raw food is easily metabolized.
