How can a Holistic Nutritionist help?
A Holistic Nutritionist assesses an individual’s diet looking at possible deficiencies of nutritional requirements which can lead to acute and chronic health conditions while also considering their physical and emotional well-being to provide a “Holistic” protocol. Each client protocol includes dietary and nutritional supplementation recommendations as well as lifestyle recommendations and detoxification protocols when needed.
Is a Holistic Nutritionist covered by my health insurance provider?
Be sure to check with your health insurance provider to see if a Holistic Nutritionist consultation is covered in your health care plan. Some health insurance providers do cover Holistic Nutrition consultations. My IONC registration number will be provided on your invoice.
What is CNP and ROHP?
Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP) is the designation earned exclusively by graduates from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition (IHN). Graduates of IHN are fully qualified without further examinations required to receive the ROHP designation from the IONC. The IONC was established in 1983 to assure the public that practitioners are meeting high educational standards. The designation “Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner” signifies a nutritional practitioner who has met the standards of the IONC – a voluntary, independent, non-profit association. ROHP designations are given by the IONC to qualified healthcare professionals that specialize in maintaining or restoring biochemistry and physiology in the body for optimum health and well-being. ROHPs must complete a minimum 2000 hours training in Natural Nutrition from an approved educational facility before being granted the designation. It is important to note that Nutritional Consulting is not a regulated profession. So it is important to seek out a nutritionist who has completed the appropriate education. All Professional members of the IONC are also required to hold Liability insurance and upgrade their education annually.
