What is holistic/natural nutrition?
Decades ago, the term holistic nutrition was barely known. Today, it is part of the lexicon of the nutrition industry, and is a term well recognized within the health care field as well as among the general population.Our modern society is awakening to a new and vital interest in nutrition. This curiosity is not aimed at the traditional dietetic and scientific field. Rather, it involves an emerging sphere of nutrition that encompasses not only the characteristics of food, but also explores the quality of the food source and holism of the consumer. This new area is called “natural nutrition.” (CSNN)
