Holistic Nutritional Counseling

Registered Holistic Nutritionists (R.H.N.s) are professionals trained in natural nutrition and complementary therapies, whose principal function is to educate individuals and groups about benefits of optimal nutrition.

R.H.N.s guide their clients through the maze of information in books, magazines, and the web about supplements and diets that are on the market as well as help them decipher and understand new studies and relevant articles pertaining to health concerns. They do not treat diseases or their symptoms or prescribe fad diets for fast weight loss. Rather, they work with individuals to identify and help correct the nutritional causes of imbalanced health, and they are qualified to design personalized diet and lifestyle programs that optimize whole health.

Ariel Richards – Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Wellness Coach, R.H.N., CCF
Ariel came to us from Canada, and here she fell in love with kite boarding, beach walks, and exploring the jungle for herbal medicinals. Through mindful self-empowerment, her clients are able to overcome the behaviours and thought patterns that are holding them back, learn the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for them, and implement lasting changes to achieve a joyfully, rejuvenated state of being!

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. If you are stressed about a relationship or something at work you may overeat- or not eat at all and instead turn to chemical stimulants. It can be very hard to motivate yourself to exercise if you are having trouble sleeping or experiencing chronic low energy. By working together we can look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

Food is intimately integrated into every aspect of our lives. We all have a relationship with food which has been developing since infancy. Your food choices are influenced by multiple dynamic forces-psychological, social, cultural, economical-that ultimately determine what you put on your plate. No one makes the same choices for their health for the exact same reasons as anyone else. This is why your issues need to be addressed individually- you are unique and deserve special attention.

Our sense of nourishment and fulfillment in life comes not only from the food that we eat, but from all other factors that are present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a rewarding career, physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential to nourishing our bodies, minds and spirits. It is imperative to integrate all of these aspects of our lives if we are to achieve optimal health. I will support you in achieving this balance.

Rather than create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods, I work with my clients to create a plan that is flexible, fun, and rewarding so that it is easier for you to reach your health goals! Whether you are looking to achieve an optimal weight, reduce food cravings, sleep better, maximize energy, or reduce the symptoms of an illness, I can help you attain your desires. The brilliance is that once you reach one goal, you will find that many others are realized as well! You will develop a deeper understanding of the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for you, and be able to implement lasting changes to your health.
