Bio-individuality: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!
HAVE you been confused about all the new diets popping up all over the place and trying to figure out which one is right for you? Thought about going Paleo? Gluten free? Vegan? Or trying out the Raw Food, Blood Type or 5:2 diet?
There are literally hundreds of diets out there. Just Google the word “diet” and you’ll be faced with a multitude of overwhelming options. When each of them claims to be the healthiest approach, how are you meant to discern which is one best for you?
What I am about to tell you, will mean you will no longer be scratching your head with utter confusion. How about creating a diet that is tailor made just for you and your body chemistry. Sounds good right?
We can tailor make our clothes to our body, so why can’t we tailor our diets to do the same? Why do we have to follow restrictive diet regimes with a nice fancy title that tell us what to eat, how to eat and when to eat?
Enter a new school of thought that’s known as ‘bio-individuality’.
The term was developed by Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. Rosenthal says, “Bio-individuality means there is a no one-size-fits-all diet, each person is a unique individual with highly individualized nutritional requirements”.
So why DO we place foods from strict overcomplicated diets into our bodies? Because that’s what our culture tells us to do, to follow a trend that either a celebrity has endorsed or that has possibly worked well for some people.
It makes no sense because there are so many personal differences in everyone’s anatomy, metabolism, body composition and cell structure that influences overall health and the foods that make us feel our best.
