Nutritionists, the scariest people since Frankenstein.
I’ve been in the industry of Holistic Health since 2008, and I have felt at times that it can be filled with a lot of frightening aspects such as…
-Labels that aren’t readily understood
-Diet principles that run against everything you ever believed
-Kombucha scoby’s that look like alien babies
-Heavy metal issues
In truth, this industry of holistic health, and more specifically, nutrition, is not meant to be understood in a single book or diet regimen.
Nutritionists are well-meaning but sometimes unaware to the fact of the intimidation factor of getting into new patterns of eating.
I strive to keep aware of the unique challenges that my clients have, and work with the comfort level being presented. We are not all runners, and I have been told by several clients that a gift that I have to bring to people is grace and patience.
When there is a teacher or role that I am serving for clients, it is just as important that I remember to not create obstacles for clients by expectations that they do not buy into themselves. I take my clients word and work with them to create changes that makes sense.
Does this Nutritionist sound so scary? ;D
