Hello everyone! My name is Nathan Olanday and I am a Certified Holistic Nutritionist. I completed my studies with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in 2015, here in the Edmonton, AB, campus. Three years ago, before I started my studies in Holistic Nutrition, I started working as a Natural Health Consultant for different health food stores. Currently, I happily work for Health Matters.
I grew up in a very traditional Filipino household. It was very common for my mother and father to give me and by brother traditional Filipino medicines for our common health problems like the cold, tummy aches, etc. As I started getting more involved in the sciences, I slowly walked away from tradition and culture because . . . it wasn't evidence based.
And then . . . I got sick. After two weeks in a hospital with extensive testing for my severe gastrointestinal and neurological symptoms, my faith in science-based, medicine decreased. When a patient shows up with crazy blood work results and symptoms, you don't tell him/her, It's psychological orYou're just stressed.
The real revolution began when I met and was treated by a Naturopath in Montreal. He was recommended to me by a church friend whose aunt and sister were his patients. To make a long story short, he found that I had systemic dysbiosis and made the proper supplement recommendations but never gave me any nutrition recommendations. It was only when I started making nutrition changes in my life and started doing my research that was when I got full results of my health issues.
After going through a transforming health change in my life, feeling alive and reinvigorated, friends and family of mine with their health issues started asking me questions and for help with their diet and nutrition. I started doing one-on-one consultations with people all over North America, from local Edmonton, AB to Montreal, QC, and Vancouver, BC, to Boise, ID, and even Long Island, NY.
As a Holistic Nutritionist, I don't really see myself as a holistic. I identify more as an integrative nutritionist. I am not purely alternative, but love working with both sides and blending the beauties of both worlds. I have a special interest in gastrointestinal health, cardiovascular and metabolic health, and immune health. When it comes to immune health, cancer or integrative oncology is also another special interest of mine.
During your consultation, I use Functional Blood Analysis to see the bigger picture when it comes to your health. This helps me as a practitioner gain better insight as to what requires more focus and attention. When the consultation is over and if supplements are needed, I use muscle testing to help choose the proper supplement that the body will respond to. If you have any questions, please feel free to talk to me by calling the Store and Wellness Clinic. I wish you the best for your health and wellness, for they truly matter. Nathan 's Hours:
