October is Fair Trade Month, but what does it really mean? At the heart of the fair trade movement is the story of the farmers and the communities they live in. In honour of this month, we’d like to share a little about our fair trade partners from around the world.
Brittany Eidsness (Registered Holistic Nutritionist). Brittany’s passion for holistic health and wellness took root at a young age. Throughout high school and university she created and led programs aimed at increasing physical fitness and raising health awareness in youth and their families. In 2006 she began studying nutrition at the University of British Columbia and following that, the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN).
After completing her diploma and receiving the designation of Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) from CSNN, she began consulting in nutrition. Her studies in Food, Nutrition and Health at UBC complement my RHN designation, allowing her to approach health and wellness from a truly comprehensive standpoint. In 2011 Brittany established her nutrition consulting business WildLives.
She is dedicated to helping her clients achieve their individual goals. For some, this is achieving weight loss, while for others it means addressing issues related to the way nutrition impacts stress, sleep, digestion and a host of other health issues. She approaches her work from a holistic point of view, meaning that she looks at all the factors that either help or hinder her client’s overall health.
She is driven by her passion for nutrition and the way simple, small changes can transform people’s lives.
