According to the needs of the individual, the practitioner suggests specific, personalized modifications to bring the client's health back to balance:

WHAT IS HOLISTIC NUTRITION - BASED ON AYURVEDIC PRINCIPLES?
Based on a more than 3,000 year-old healing tradition, Ayurvedic nutrition is a time-tested, authentic art of how to healthily nourish oneself. Its theory of balance is founded on the universal principles of the 5 elements, the four seasons and most importantly the metabolic state of the individual (agni). In the kitchen, for each season, it principles are applied to a choice of specific foods and spices, the 6 tastes, preparation and cooking methods, etc...
Even though the tradition of Ayurveda originates in India, its principles apply to all culinary traditions, beyond any preconceptions of or limitations to Indian cooking.
This art of nutrition teaches us to be wisely and consciously nourished - beyond extremes and dogmas -according to the season, to one's needs of the moment and to one's digestive capacity. Ayurvedic nutrition encourages creating intuitive, nourishing, homemade dishes, using whole, local, seasonal, prana (vitality)-rich ingredients.
