Become health coach with IIN

Why did I choose to become health coach with IIN?

This question may sound pretty obvious to me but let me tell you why you should become health coach with IIN.

First of all, IIN stands for Institute For Integrative Nutrition. It was founded by Joshua Rosenthal in 1992 in New York City. It started as a small group of 20 students and today it is the largest nutrition school with over 50,000 students and graduates in 122 countries.

How I decided to become a health coach?

When I first heard of IIN, I was actually researching on internet what a Wellness Coach was. It’s been a year and a half since I started writing this blog and even if I was not aware, along with my Instagram Account were touching many lives out there.

I suddenly started receiving emails and comments from readers and followers asking me to coach them on their efforts to lose weight and live a healthier life. 

I remember that first email… I was shocked! All kinds of questions and fears came to my mind: “Am I able to do this? I’m not a certified health professional. All I know is because of my own experience and investigation”, and many more.

It was also shocking to receive all kinds of questions about health and nutrition on a daily basis from my Instagram followers.  And suddenly I had this whole new dream in my heart to become a wellness coach.

Well, that is my story: started as a weight loss blogger for my own good and now I’m studying to become a health coach for the good of humanity and mother Earth!

Reasons why you should become health coach with IIN

1. Holistic approach to health.

Remember when I said I wanted to become a Wellness Coach? In that moment that was the title I though of: someone who is able to help the patient to reach her/his goals in all senses. Including health goals, career goals, relationship goals, nutrition goals and any other goal that will lead to a real state of wellness.

Well, that is what IIN is about. Even though the title is Health Coach, they form health professionals in a holistic way. Now I understand that health is such a deep word; health is the reflection of how your life is going in every field. It’s not about symptomatology or what you eat; it’s about how you feel, what you fear, what you dream and many more. Their approach goes from relationships, career, physical activity, spirituality, nutrition, money, dreams and more.

2. Amazing teachers

IIN has a full board of educators formed by leading experts in the fields of nutrition, health and wellness, coaching and business. Just to mention some of your teachers: Dr. Mehmet Oz, Joel Fuhrman, Andrea Beaman, Deepak Chopra, Arianna Huffington, David Wolfe, Joe Cross and many more. You will be mentored by some of the most amazing people in the field! Doesn’t it sound great?

3. Over 100 dietary theories

  1. Interesting Andrea. Not heard of this. How do you differ from a nutritionist? I recently had an informal consultation with a nutritionist. Is a Health Coach similar? It sounds positive with IIN. I myself need the guidance rather than being able to give it :)

    • That’s such a great question, George. A nutritionist is someone that will arrange a diet plan for your needs and goals. A health coach is someone who will work with you to set an action plan for you to achieve your life goals from a holistic approach. This means health is defined not only by your nutrition habits but also by the interconnection between nutrition and your career, family, relationships, physical activity, spirituality and so on. A health coach from IIN will help you to identify all those aspects in your life where you’d like to make changes for a lifetime and will work together with you to achieve them. So, a health coach will help you to optimize your eating habits but it’s not limited to that. :)

  2. Hi Andrea, I never heard of a health coach before or the IIN for that matter. It looks very holistic.
