Want To Become A Health Coach?!
Are you passionate about having vibrant health and wellbeing? Do you find yourself constantly scouring the internet for healthy lifestyle tips?
What is the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN)?
IIN is the world’s largest nutrition school. It is a year-long online program that designed for people who are passionate about health and wellness. The students at IIN are from all walks of life and each having a different purpose or reason for being there. They can range from struggling with their own personal health (or that of a close family member), interested in launching a new and exciting career, for general interest and to work on attaining a greater sense of health and wellbeing, or to enhance an already attained accreditation in the health or wellbeing industry (Nurse, Doctor, Counsellor, Nutritionist, Dietician etc).
Over 100 different dietary theories are explored during the programme. The programme is designed to empower you to transform your life and take back your health and wellness. Not only does the programme discuss health and a healthy lifestyle, but also discusses important issues such as relationships, career, physical activity, spirituality, finances, home life, to name a few. It even goes as far as offering you practical tips, advice and support in launching your own business (if that is something you are interested in).
As mentioned in My Story, studying at IIN had been on my radar for a long time. Health and wellbeing has always been of utmost importance to me, but I didn’t always prioritise it the way that I should have. My studies at IIN have completely changed the trajectory of my life. With what I thought originally was going to be used as understanding and building upon better health to serve a wider community and build my business, later morphed into me understanding my greater purpose here for this lifetime.
Vibrant health and wellbeing is so much more than what is on your plate. It was through learning this, not only understanding and learning about different dietary theories, but also through the exploration of every facet of my life, from my spiritual practices, relationships, career, home life, physical activity, and following what truly lights me up that it opened me to a whole different aspect of coaching. If it wasn’t for being enrolled at IIN, and having gone through the program (which in and of itself helps assist you in a deep dive into exploration of self), I don’t think I would have discovered and found my purpose as quickly as I did.
While being enrolled at the school, I have had the opportunity to connect with so many link minded souls from all over the world and all walks of life. I have so much gratitude for my experience at IIN. I cannot believe how much I have loved it. Who knew that you could have so much fun studying (and actually love what you are learning about). I didn´t! I guess that is what happens when you are aligned with what you love and are following your passions.
What I really love about IIN is that it promotes balance and mindfulness in all aspects of your life. For me in the past, balance and mindfulness were things that I struggled with. I´m happy to report that now, after learning many of the techniques and modalities offered in the course, I am feeling brighter, freer and more vibrant than I ever have.
IIN teaches over 150 different dietary theories while combining coaching techniques paired with business training so that upon graduation you are well equipped and have the greatest chance of creating a successful life as a Health Coach. The unique nutrition theory takes into account holistic view of your life, including your relationships, work, exercise and spirituality as well as what you eat to build optimum health from the inside out.
Who Are The Teachers?
Joshua Rosenthal, the founder of IIN, teaches roughly half of the curriculum with the remainder being taught by experts of their respective fields. Integrative Nutrition has more than 100 world-class educators who are leading physicians, researchers, doctors, and nutrition experts at the forefront of the health and wellness movement.
