Wildflower Holistic Services is passionate about supporting our community in understanding themselves as a whole being, sounds weird right but for most of us when we think about mental health, physical health or behaviour challenges, we think of them singularly and may not recognise the way each component of who we are is crucial to all of the others being at optimal health.

 

This is why we are committed to including services in our space that address all aspects of health and wellbeing and we believe our nutrition is a huge component of living a life that is healthy in all areas.

 

You may have heard, ‘you are what you eat’, but did you know that this is 100% accurate! The cells of your body are regenerated completely, from head to toe, every 365 days (approx), so the food you put in your body literally creates the person you are year after year. So, having a dietician onboard to provide quality services for our Wildflower community is a no brainer for us to help you all to be the healthiest you can possibly be.
