About my Holistic Practice
Hello! My name is Marisa, I am the founder of Holistic Seedling Nutrition. I was educated at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in British Columbia as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. I am currently practicing as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist.
I am trained to evaluate nutritional needs by identifying symptoms that may indicate health imbalances. I strongly believe that the foundation for good health begins in the gut.
I use a holistic approach to assess nutritional needs through one-on-one consultations and focused questionnaires.
Our health goes far beyond the food that we eat. I strongly believe that we must feed all aspects of our being to be truly healthy and whole. It is an important part of my practice to take my client’s emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical health into consideration.
My approach to healthy eating is not one size fits all.
I believe that there is not one diet that is suited for everyone.
I work with people to help them discover a way of eating that is best suited for their body & its unique set of dietary needs.
"Marisa did a great job of understanding and providing insightful information for ways of rethinking food, preparation and planning. She was thoughtful in planning with my busy schedule as a nursing student, she made sticking to the plan easier than I had expected. Marisa provided a detailed document that went over my condition, dos and don’ts for food and additionally provided some easy to make recipes that are now my go to meals! I feel completely satisfied with the work that she had put in, and would recommend her to everyone I know including my patients!"
"After many years of trying supplements and spending hundreds of dollars with Naturopaths, I can honestly say that I could see the improvements after my first consultation with Marisa. I have struggled with digestive issues my whole life and it was rather refreshing being able to discuss it with someone who understood personally. I didn't have to worry about explaining myself and my struggle too in-depth because she had been through it and knew what it felt like. She has already personally tried numerous different treatments for digestive support so she was able to suggest many different options for me to try. If one didn't work out, she always had another one to recommend. Her wealth of knowledge on the subject of gut health is remarkable, and when she's talking about it there is absolutely no doubt this is her passion. She carries this passion into her work and her commitment to helping people out of the dark place she was once in and into a state of well-being."
“Marisa is extremely passionate and knowledgeable when it comes to gut health. She has been the most helpful person in my journey. She has provided me with so much useful information to understand the reasoning behind my flare ups, and how to deal with them. Marisa invests in you and takes the time to truly get to know your specific needs. I am honoured to have been able to work with her and would highly recommend her to anyone out there suffering with gut issues!”
