Welcome to Holistic Nutrition Center
'Primary Health Care from the Kitchen'
Prevention may seem like work, but it's a lot easier and a whole lot cheaper than treating disease.* Holistic Nutrition Center makes 'healthy diet' pretty simple!
We offer hope - better health though fun cooking classes, nutrition programs and clinical appointments to help you eat right so you feel better.
You'll be working with professionals - nutritionists, nurses and chefs who know how to use food to help you gain energy, mental focus and better sleep. This won't cure your illness but when you think more clearly and start feeling like yourself again, you're more likely to want to add other improvements. Our clients are often surprised that 'being healthier' becomes contagious, and a lifestyle.
Don't settle for a lifestyle that revolves around treating symptoms or disease. There are almost always nutritional improvements that can be made that aren't difficult, aren't expensive, and aren't labor intensive.
To change your body you first need to change your mind.
If you are looking for a way to make positive changes to your health, food may be your ticket. We can show you what to do.
We believe that understanding 'health' requires a little bit of knowledge and common sense - so we teach it. Most of us don't have a medical background so we think it's helpful for a nurse explain how the body works. Most of us aren't nutritionists so we have a nutritionist teach you how food affects the body, and to choose well. So many people have never learned to cook, so it can be helpful to have someone demonstrate specific recipes. And we want you to roll up your sleeves and become Top Chef in our kitchen, even if you don't know how to cook. Informative and fun.
At Holistic Nutrition Center, you'll develop a foundational understand of 'health and nutrition' and know specific things to improve it. We believe that wellness begins in the mind but the journey starts right at the dinner table.
You may not know where to begin and may even think that 'health' is no longer possible. But wouldn't it be helpful to have more energy? Wouldn't you feel better without inflammation? Would your symptoms be more tolerable when you sleep better? What if a better diet could improve athletic performance or help with concentration at school? It's all about learning what can be done in your kitchen with holistic nutrition, and then having loads of fun making improvements.
We want whole families to be eating healthy diets. We encourage everyone in the family to learn at least one signature dish. We have new classes even for kids age 3-5 years old!
We think that the right food is affordable, easy and quick. We think that understanding nutrition topics like food manufacturing, fad diets, marketing schemes, super food claims, will help you make better choices for you and your family.
Wellness begins by eating right. Happiness can come from intentional action toward making personal improvement.

* A brief look at just one disease related to diet: The average yearly patient cost for diabetes is $13,500; but a healthy diet may not cost anything extra. About 40% of Americans age 40-74 are considered pre-diabetic according to the American Diabetic Association. That's a lot of people who are eating the wrong diet! Statistics show that about 1/2 of these people will have full blown diabetes in 10 years even though Type 2 diabetes is preventable with diet.
If diseases run in your family, take action, challenge your status quo and try to make changes. The leading causes of death in Ottawa County are largely preventable: Cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's, and respiratory disease.
Note: We don't give medical advice, we work with your doctor. To this date, all doctors have approved our diet plans and many have encouraged their patients to continue what they're doing because of the results. Referrals aren't necessary, just call for an appointment.
