About Heart-Food Holistic Nutrition

Christiane Panesar, M.A., C.H.N.C.


The moment we align, we are able to see that we don't have to try so hard.


I'm helping people, who are seeking REAL NURTURE in their life, to nourish their BODY, HEART & SOUL. I know what it means to be physically & emotionally depleted - and I know what it was like to feel confused & helpless in regards to my health. I've been there. I wish I would have had a health coach at that time to tell me what I know now.

After 6 years of studying for my Masters in Germany, I was feeling depressed and exhausted. I was wondering why I always felt tired, lacked motivation and why I got constantly sick. After many regimes of antibiotics, I figured that a reductionist approach is no solution, and I began to educate myself on natural health. I enrolled in Canada's Leading Program in Natural Nutrition through the CSNN (Canadian School for Natural Nutrition) in 2012.  I'm board certified with the Canadian Association of Holistic Nutrition Professionals and certified with the Certified Coaches Federation.

My hunger to find out about connections and underlying factors of emotional eating and addictive behaviour lead me to Dr. Gabor Maté's work. I studied with him what he calls 'Compassionate Inquiry'  and went through a process of deep inquiry. This approach is a tool to reconnect ourselves with our authentic voice that we've stopped listening to.

I founded Heart-Food Holistic Nutrition for people, who are ready to empower themselves with precious knowledge about true health and real nurture that many of us have been disconnected from. I believe that the body can heal itself, when we provide the right environment so that it can come back into balance. As the daughter of a distinguished German naturopath and author, I adopted my father's philosophy to look deeper into the underlying reasons for imbalance instead of simply covering up symptoms. The key is to reconnect with our inner wisdom and work WITH the body. There are powerful subconscious contributors to why we are getting sick and might be in a state of 'surviving' instead of thriving. Let me serve you on your journey to realize your full potential.

I'm particularly passionate about epigenetics & nutrigenomics - the studies of how our environment, food, natural supplements, and even beliefs influence the expression of our genes. While not everything is in our control, I believe that we have a lot of responsibility, which I find very empowering and exciting.

It was a milestone in my journey to understand and heal my body.  Christiane was kind understanding open and easy to communicate and work with. I feel her depth of knowledge and compassion. I’m excited to continue along this path.

Your appointment was one of the best that I have had in a long time. I needed guidance with my diet and eating habits - and you did an excellent job with that.  You also confirmed that it is okay for me to listen to my body - that was a god-send.

Christiane is extremely knowledgeable and so very easy to talk to. I am grateful I met her; her guidance and wisdome have helped me transform both my husband and my lives through choosing healthier food/life choices. Thank you Christiane and Heart-Food Holistic Nutrition..... Simply the Best!!!

Christiane is fabulous! I've been to a number of her illuminating workshops and I've known her personally for some time. I'm grateful for her vast knowledge about holistic nutrition and her determination to always be learning. I'm grateful for her patience, love, and support with helping me change and introduce new habits into my lifestyle. And I'm addicted to her CapomoMojo coffee alternative! Attend one of her workshops and meet with her in person. You'll be happy you did!

Christiane is fantastic! She's very knowledgable and made me feel comfortable to talk about my food issues because there was no judgement - just smiles and a sense of understanding. She helped me by explaining what and why I should eat certain foods or add supplements. I now understand what my body needs in order to function at a better and healthier level. I'm so thankful that I met her because I already feel so much better.

I am very happy that one of my friends introduced Christiane to me and my family. I didn't have any specific medical problem but most of the time during weekdays I was so tired and by nutrition that Christiane recommended to me, now I am more alert and less tired by end of day. She is really a great Nutrition Coach. She listened very good to our concerns and by a very good questionnaire, she helped us to see what adjustments we need to do to our nutrition. She is very knowledgeable and anything she recommended to eat or avoid eating, was based on science. She helped us to improve our eating habits. Thank you Christiane.

I would definitely recommend Christiane! She is very helpful, thorough, informative and also was an attentive listener. She shared important details and strategies for my health goals to get me on track in a way that is manageable for someone already feeling overwhelmed with their schedule. She had lots of very specific incite regarding how systems relate in the body and specifically for me who was looking to balance the gut. She shared several amazing recipes to get me started which I have been inspired to begin experimenting with. I have been working with other approaches to my issue for a while and am really happy I made the step of working with her as I can see it will be to my great benefit, along with being very supportive to make the necessary changes. Thank you Christiane!!

Four friends and I attended Christiane's workshop Balance on Your Plate - graciously hosted at her home. While some of us were more 'nutritionally aware' than others, we all left with learnings that we felt could be applied right away.

This was not just a talk about whole foods, but also about shifting how one identifies with the body and ultimately how to live. All of us were so appreciative of how Christiane provided new knowledge, mindfully answered their questions, and shared with us a sample of a delicious detoxing smoothie.

Needless to say, I would highly recommend Christiane to anyone looking to learn and to move towards a healthy and balanced way of living.
