Rich Ralph RHN
Rich Ralph is the founder of and primary nutritional consultant at Vancouver Nutritionist.
When people experience chronic pain or discomfort, it often consumes their lives. Rich is passionate about helping people get to the root of their issue, move past it, and come back to a place of harmony. He works with adults and children of all ages to help regain a truly healthy body and mind.
Rich knows that no single approach is right for every person, and so became trained in a multitude of modalities to help facilitate healing. He became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist after studying at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver. He then became an accredited Theta Healer, enabling him to expand his skill set and service his clients better. Finally, he studied with the Institute of Natural Health Technologies where he became a Registered Bio-Energetics Practitioner. This new approach, called Bio-Energetics, is proving to be one of the most powerful tools in Rich’s practice today!
Prior to moving to Vancouver in 2004, Rich studied engineering and psychology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Being able to combine the application of his psychology and nutrition education with energy healing has given Rich a unique perspective on health that allows him to work with clients on a much more intimate and effective way.
In 2007, Rich received news that a close friend had been diagnosed with throat and lung cancer. Witnessing his friend’s health struggle, Rich set out to assess his own current health, as well as promote wellness for others. In an effort to raise awareness, he began a journey unlike any other in Canadian history. Upon completion in Vancouver, Rich became the first man to successfully rollerblade over 10,000 kilometers across Canada. He credits much of his determination, stamina and abilities in accomplishing this feat to proper and adequate nutrition. Read more about this incredible story here.
Today, Rich works with individuals and families who are looking to make long-term, sustainable changes that will empower them to reach their optimal well-being. While his main office is in downtown Vancouver, Rich, his partner, Rachel, and daughter live on beautiful Bowen Island, where he also has an office to see clients.
