Kirsten Janz is a certified Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) and Raw Foods Chef. Her nutritional practice began over three years ago as a parallel to her career in health care. However, her interest in alternative health developed at a very young age after experiencing her own unique health struggles. During this time, she discovered alternative medicine and a whole foods diet, which brought her a great appreciation and understanding for holistic based health care. As a result, she has made a career out of her passion for empowering others to make healthy meal choices and adopting wellness principles that will improve the overall quality of life.
Kirsten specializes in nutrition for digestive health, allergies, weight loss and men’s health. However she has a keen interest in sports nutrition and physiology. Kirsten holds a degree in the Social Sciences from Simon Fraser University and the designation of a RHN, with honors, from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.

My job as a holistic nutritionist is not simply to tell you what to eat. Albeit this is a part of what I do, my job actually goes far beyond the scope of just recommending healthy eating. During our sessions together, I will work with you to identify your individual symptomatology, unique health history and wellness goals in order to get an overall understanding of your current health situation. This enables me to identify what your body needs in order to start the process of restoration and healing. An important part of what I do is to help you find a way to make diet and lifestyle changes that are sustainable. We all have our limitations; whether it be our busy lifestyles, our families’ unique taste buds or our favorite vices such as red wine and chocolate, our limitations are a part of who we are and so they too will be a part of the plan I create for you. Working with me you will likely hear the words “everything in moderation”. This is truly the principle I follow when creating any new plan for clients. We cannot follow a cookie cutter approach to health and wellness; our uniqueness is what identifies us, and so it is important to me that you are able find and sustain balance during the process of making changes and healing yourself.
