Holistic Nutritionists are health practitioners who use natural approach to a healthy diet. When assessing individual’s health, they take into consideration their lifestyle, environment, as well as emotional, spiritual and physical state. Their core principles include “no size fits all” and the importance of balance in all areas of life. In other words, holistic approach to nutrition is not just about food, and definitely not about any diet.
One of the best definitions of Holistic Nutrition was given by the American College of Healthcare Sciences: “Holistic nutrition requires a whole-life approach—when and where you eat, where your food comes from, and what your food ate. Holistic nutrition can also include a specific cultural philosophy—like Ayurveda or Traditional Chinese Medicine—or a specific diet—such as ancestral foods, raw foods, cleansing, vegetarianism, or anti-inflammatory, for example.”
