Holistic nutrition is a balanced way to approach health.
It Emphasizes Two Aspects:
One, nutrition, including protein, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, should be kept in right proportions to help our bodies reach overall physical and emotional health and maximum energy levels.
Two, each individual and his/her unique health situation are different and require different amounts of these proteins, vitamins, minerals and nutrients to reach their health goals.
