Are Registered Holistic Nutritionists A Regulated Healthcare Profession?

In most jurisdictions, holistic nutritionists are self-regulated through an association, including Canada. They are not regulated by the government. As a result, you aren’t required to be member of a regulated body the way naturopathic doctors, dentists and medical physicians are. However, membership in professional associations like the International Organization of Nutritional Consultants, the Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Practitioners and the National Association of Nutritional Professionals (USA) does have its benefits, including greater credibility.
