You'll usually find Dieticians working in more clinical settings such as hospitals, public health, community health centers, long term care and food service. Dieticians are educated in food and nutrition and counsel their clientshealthpic28 on healthy eating habits and nutritional issues. They generally follow the traditional food pyramid set out by the government. They use the Canada's Food Guide and calorie requirement to make recommendations. Dieticians don't usually explore the link between diet and dis-ease.

A Registered Holistic Nutritionist is usually found in private practice, health centers, gyms, and nutrition stores. With an R.H.N. you'll get a holistic health approach and a comprehensive wellness plan. They focus on balancing body systems with live, nutrient dense foods, stress reduction and lifestyle management, reducing toxic load of the body through organ and system detoxification. Holistic Nutritionists look at the entire person and make individual recommendations (because everyone is unique) to correct sub-optimal body systems before they manifest as dis-ease. 

Although both R.D.s and R.H.N.s are required to keep their education current and continue learning throughout their careers, Dieticians follow the government regulated health guidlines that don't tend to change with advancements of the health and nutrition field. Holistic Nutritionists however, pride themselves on keeping up to date with new advancements and also rediscovering ancient techniques to improve health to aid their clients to achieve their optimal level of wellness.
