Lindsay Holmes, BSc F.S., RHN
Registered Holistic Nutritionist
Growing up in Ottawa, Lindsay always had a love for both law and science. When it was time to choose a University program she decided to combine her two interests and enrolled in the Forensic Science program at Trent University. While in this program Lindsay was introduced to various areas of science and law and found that she was drawn to the biological sciences. Lindsay graduated from this program with honours in 2008 and accepted a position with the Canadian Border Services Agency as a Forensic Document Examiner.
While working for the federal government Lindsay began to develop a strong interest in health and fitness. She became a regular at her local gym and began long-distance running. While training for her first full marathon, Lindsay began to realize the impact that diet had on her training and recovery. She began to implement some of the diet principles she learned from training into her everyday diet and immediately noticed a difference in how she looked and felt.
Wanting to learn more about the ability of food to affect performance and overall health, Lindsay enrolled at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Her background in science helped her understand how the food that we consume can really affect every aspect of our health. Lindsay received the award for highest standing in her class upon graduation from the Natural Nutrition program and was given the designation of Registered Holistic Nutritionist.
Following graduation, Lindsay opened her own practice and relocated to Oshawa. She joined the team at Chiropractic Wellness and Rehabilitation, including her former Trent classmate Dr. Kristen Hoekstra, to offer clients one-on-one nutrition counselling that will help them achieve their personal wellness goals and improve their overall health.

Primarily, these recommendations are based on whole foods but can also include nutritional supplements to complement the diet and lifestyle changes to enhance overall wellbeing.
A holistic nutritionist can help support several different health concerns, including:
