In practice since 2005, based in Nelson British Columbia
For a confidential discussion about planning a healthy life
New clients start free with a 30 minute phone call
Welcome to my professional home page. I am so glad you decided to learn about your health. I have made it my life’s work to study health, practice healthy living, and teaching others how to take charge of their health.
I aim to build this website into a resource for my clients to use. For those of you needing more support, I can be available for a consultation, online or in person.
My practice is located in Nelson BC.
Adopting a Positive Outlook
Our thoughts effect the way we feel. Positive thoughts generate positive feelings. Negative thoughts diminish a sense of well being by lowering our overall energy. By choosing to focus on what is virtuous, enlightening, and healing we change the way we feel and experience life.
My goal is to empower you in your relationship to healthy living. Consulting is only one step toward self-empowerment. A dedication and commitment to yourself is required. Each step is meaningful toward the goal of well being, but the first step is the hardest. Make a stand for your own well being and decide to live each day as it were meant to be lived.
Is Aaron a Naturopathic Doctor?
In British Columbia and in Canada, Naturopathic Doctors are regulated as physicians who can diagnose and treat disease. Aaron Ander is a Certified Nutritional Consultant, and a Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner, and has certificates in Nutrition and Mental Health, Mental Health and Addictions, and Holistic Iridology. Instead of diagnosis, Aaron provides Holistic Health assessments and treats symptoms of imbalance in the body based on health history and information seen in the iris of the eyes. Aaron cannot diagnose disease or treat disease as a Naturopathic Doctor would.
Registered Dietitian vs. Holistic Nutritionist
Do I need to ask my family Doctor before the consult?
Natural Path Healing provides a Complementary Health Care service that works alongside your current treatment plan for anxiety, depression, and other psychological problems. Our support plans work in addition to your current health services by supporting your body Holistically.
Medical Treatment for can continue alongside diet therapy. Holistic Nutrition addresses symptom of body imbalance that can be corrected by supporting the nourishment of vital organs, elimination of toxins, removing food allergies, and supplementing nutritional deficiencies often missed by conventional treatments.
Is this service psychotherapy or counseling?
Counseling is a general term that applies to any kind of counselor who provides direct support for mental health. Psychotherapy is “therapy” for your “psyche”. Aaron’s education is Holistic and draws on several disciplines that together view mental health in a context that includes the physical body, emotional wellness and self-care, thoughts and beliefs, and leads us to an overall experience of peace, serenity, and overall well-being.
Please continue to see your psychiatrist, and continue to take all medications prescribed in combination with this service. The best result come from addressing disease from several angles and with an open mind to changing habits, thoughts, ideas, and beliefs.
We are made of the Dust of the Earth
The body requires nutrients from food. Our plants grow in the soil which is a source of minerals that we need to stay healthy. Only plants can transform these vital nutrients into a form which our body can handle. When an animal eats a plant, we take in those nutrients from eating animal foods. Plants which grow on dead soil, and animals that eat nutritionally void diets, do not make healthy offerings to our body. Organic food, grown in ideal conditions, allow for the plant and animal to provide us with all the building blocks we need for life.
