Naturopathic Nutritionist

The primary focus of naturopathic or holistic nutrition, unlike conventional mainstream nutrition or dietetics, is on natural remedies and the body’s physiological balance. Most importantly, focus is given to the human body's innate ability to heal and maintain itself naturally. A naturopathic approach to nutrition and wellness identifies the imbalances in a specific diet and lifestyle and attempts to adjust these imbalances to allow the body its natural ability to correct the problems, illnesses or ailments without conventional drugs or surgery.

According to David Getoff, a well respected Naturopath and Board-Certified Clinical Nutritionist, “There is no treatment or drug which can overcome or negate the effects of a poor diet… and an unhealthy lifestyle”. First and foremost, a naturopathic outlook on nutrition identifies the body’s optimum nutritional intake and exercise level to find a healthy lifestyle that fits within these parameters. If this type of nutrition is what interests you most, you may be the right person for a career as a naturopathic nutritionist.

A Naturopathic Approach to Nutrition

Nutrition and food are the backbone of all naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic nutrition favors a holistic approach to wellness, allowing for only a minimal use of artificial supplements, drugs or surgical procedures. Moreover, prevention of illness and ailments is preferred, rather than the treatment of these preventable problems. Many of these illnesses and ailments can be prevented through the workings of a healthy diet, fitness and lifestyle adjustments and the reduction of unnecessary stress.

Naturopathic Nutrition Core Values

The general philosophy of naturopathic medicine, including nutrition, can be found in six ‘core values’:

  1. In order not to harm the body during treatment, provide the most effective health care available with the least risk to patients;
  2. Recognize, respect and promote’ the human body’s ability to heal itself and run on an optimal diet and fitness regimen;
  3. Identify and remove the causes of illnesses or ailments instead of treating just the symptoms;
  4. Educate others and persuade them to live and eat healthier for themselves;
  5. Treat patients with a holistic approach, taking into consideration all possible health factors and influences in the body.
  6. Naturopathic medicine does not just treat one person, but focuses on the environment they are in, including their community and surrounding people. A complete course of action would be to treat the entire environment of ailments, illness and disease.

Naturopathic Nutritionist Career Outlook

As health care becomes increasingly expensive, more emphasis will be put on the prevention of illness as opposed to treatment. As this is the primary goal of any naturopathic nutritionist, the industry is well positioned to increase its demand over the coming decade. An especially large amount of literature has been dedicated to many philosophies and treatments within naturopathic nutrition, and this too will lead to a better understanding of this practice throughout the general public. For those interested in naturopathic nutrition, there has never been a better time to get started.
