153068476Holistic Nutritionists

Holistic Nutritionists are trained health consultants who assess your nutritional needs and deficiencies through many perspectives. They do not simply take into account the result of a blood test, but help individuals recognize dietary deficiencies, and teach them how to correct them. They help guide individuals to make wiser food choices, and can assist in explaining the various products, supplements and diets available to consumers. The ultimate goal is a healthier diet, which leads to a more balanced body, mind, and soul.

Iron Deficiency Counselling

Iron deficiency is a common problem, and is often due to poor diet, heavy menstrual cycles, genetic, and various other causes. Iron deficiency can include the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Nail changes

Our Iron Deficiency Counselling program includes the following items:

  • Confirmation of iron deficiency through medical blood tests
  • Identification of conditions or symptoms that would benefit from iron deficiency correction
  • Completion of a week-long daily food log to help identify nutritional deficiencies
  • Consultation to assess your food log and provide you with information on iron-rich foods and sample meal plans and recipes to increase your iron levels

Dr. Oliva-Custic supervises your plan and, together with Eli Karabatic, ensures that all food and meal plans meet dietary standards.
