Nutritionist Hawaii | Holistic Diet & Nutrition in Honolulu, HI

At the Center for Natural Healing Hawaii, we understand that nutrition is the foundation to overall health and well-being. Our nutritionists in Honolulu, Hawaii are first and foremost committed to helping you get well and stay well, as well as helping you decrease your risk of disease, healthily manage your weight, and improve your energy levels.

Unlike conventional dietitians, our nutritionists take a holistic approach to nutrition, offering nutritional guidance that extends beyond basic dietary advice and incorporates various aspects of yourself to account for genetic, lifestyle, medical, and mental factors.

By approaching nutrition in this manner, we can bring about better health outcomes for our patients, helping them achieve their personal health goals and bring about lasting changes. Not temporary quick fixes.

The philosophy of our nutrition therapy program is grounded in holistic and naturopathic principles, using food as medicine, evidence-based practices, and patient education.

We recognize that each person is unique and as a result, requires nutritional guidance and methodologies that are as unique as they are.

Our Holistic Approach to Nutrition

At the Center for Natural Healing Hawaii, our approach to nutrition is deeply rooted in the naturopathic principles that consider food as the foundational medicine for better health. Slightly differing from the approach of a registered dietitian nutritionist, we firmly believe in the ancient wisdom that views food not just as sustenance but as a key element in preventing and treating illnesses.

Our philosophy is centered on the concept that the human body possesses the ability to restore and maintain health. We believe that proper nutrition can be transformative, providing the body with the essential tools it needs for healing and thriving.

Central to our approach to nutrition is restoring the health of the gut microbiome, The gut is often referred to as the body’s ‘second brain,’ playing a pivotal role in everything from immune function to mental health. This aspect is often forgotten about by a registered dietitian who concerns themselves with dietetics.

Our nutritional philosophy, paired with our holistic approach to care that incorporates various facets of the patient, including but not limited to mental health, medical conditions, current diet, lifestyle factors, and food intolerances, allows us to provide nutritional guidance that helps our patients achieve their health and wellness goals.

Food, Gut Health, and the Digestive System

Gut health is a fundamental component of overall wellness, largely governed by the microbiome – a complex community of microorganisms living in the digestive system. The state of the gut microbiome is intricately linked to what we eat, making nutrition a key factor in its balance and health.

The microbiome plays a critical role in numerous bodily functions, including digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune system regulation. It’s also increasingly recognized for its influence on mental health, often referred to as the gut-brain axis. The diversity and balance of these gut microorganisms are essential to helping our patients get well and stay well.

Diets rich in diverse, whole foods, particularly those high in fiber, can promote a healthier gut flora. Conversely, diets high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can disrupt this balance, leading to compromised gut health, and giving way to other health complications down the road. Our nutritionist in Hawaii aims to restore gut health and improve its function with all clients.
