What Do Integrative and Functional Dietitians Do?
What is the difference between Integrative Medicine, Integrative Registered Dietitian and Holistic Health?
Integrative Medicine - is the combination of practices and methods of alternative medicine with evidence based medicine. It is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals, and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
Integrative Registered Dietitian views food, eating, wellness, and exercise not just in terms of calories or weight loss, but in physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual terms.
Holistic Health - a concept that concern for health requires a perception of the individual as an integrated system rather than one or more separate parts including physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease.
What is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist ?
Nutritionist vs. Dietitian
Anyone can call him- or herself a nutritionist, but only a registered dietitian (RD) or registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) has completed multiple layers of education and training established by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. In addition to holding a bachelor's degree, an RD or RDN must fulfill a specially designed, accredited nutrition curriculum, pass a rigorous registration exam, and complete an extensive supervised program of practice at a health care facility, foodservice organization or community agency. There is no standard definition for a “nutritionist”. There is no qualification needed to be called a nutritionist. RDs are the nutrition experts in every imaginable food environment.
All registered dietitians are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians.
