NTI believes in bioindividuality. We teach our graduates to understand the biochemical individuality of the human body with regard to nutrition. We do not draw from a stand-alone point of view or philosophy. We do not support one diet or one diet philosophy in particular (such as pro-vegetarian vs. pro-meat). Rather, we embrace learning all philosophies. Biochemical individuality calls for varying diet and nutrient recommendations among different people. For example, athletes, pregnant women, diabetics, and those suffering from autoimmune conditions all require individual attention and very different food and nutrient recommendations.
We believe that learning multiple philosophies and offering education in the science will allow our students to form their own opinions. Our hope is that by focusing on a strong science foundation, students will graduate with the tools to understand the application of many different philosophies.
