THERE ARE PLENTY OF PROGRAMS TO CERTIFY PEOPLE AS HEALTH COACHES. Why The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN)?

IIN is one of the recommended pre-requisites to the Thyroid Yoga® training and teacher certification.

I am a graduate and Ambassador of IIN, and you may be wondering whether it may be the best fit for you.

So, I’m going to be completely honest, transparent and clear about why I feel their program truly is the top Integrative Health certification offering, and why I recommend their program above all.

First and foremost, IIN has been providing top tier Integrative Nutrition education for over 25 years. Almost 60% of the curriculum is taught by the leading experts in the field of nutrition. They are the pioneers for new ideas, theories and direction in nutrition today.

Are there other programs out there teaching great stuff? Of course! But none are as comprehensive and in-depth as IIN.

What's unique about IIN is instead of teaching you that there is only ONE certain way to eat, that there are hundreds of different ways that may relate to your future clients and students. For the first six months, you learn over one hundred different dietary theories from Paleo to Macrobiotic to Ayurvedic Nutrition.

What is a Health Coach?

A health coach is a healthcare professional that educates, motivates, and supports clients to achieve their health goals through diet, lifestyle, and behavior adjustments. Beyond education and guidance, a Health Coach keeps their client accountable and supported throughout their journey to radiant well being.

  

What Does a Health Coach Do?

As a Health-Coach, you can choose your own niche - whether that is hormone health, recovery from addictive or emotional eating behaviors, or speciality in women’s reproductive and sexual wellness - and work as an entrepreneur, in-tandem with a Doctor's office, as a consultant or launch your own business. Examples of niches include:
 

  • Corporate wellness

  • Helping burnt-out professionals become healthier

  • Helping women rebalance their hormones 

  • Working with people with thyroid disorders

  • Eating disorders 

  • Weight loss

  • Acne

  • Fertility

  • Recipe development

  • Restaurant menu development

  • Spa consulting

  • Health product development

  • Wellness education

  • School health programs

 

The school states that 74% of students launch a health coaching practice before they graduate from IIN. Of those students, 48% charge $100/hour or more for their health coaching services. A year after graduating, most charge $200 and upwards. Expert coaches can charge up to $500 an hour for their one-on-ones.

 

You can also create tens of thousands a month passive income through online programs, videos, and brand sponsorships.


Why Health Coaching?

Health Coaches are more needed than ever before.

We, health-conscious people, are still the minority. The only way the world can become a healthier place is if we can share this knowledge we've acquired with others.

From one-on-one coaching to starting a podcast or blog to corporate wellness to working in a doctor's office to teaching in schools to hosting live events, there are infinite possibilities once you have your certificate as a Holistic Health Coach from IIN.

I couldn't recommend IIN enough, which is why I became an Ambassador to help empower more health-coaches!

IIN’s program can be used for credits toward a bachelor’s degree at many schools  across the country or toward a master’s degree at some schools as well.

IIN also has a special relationship with the IAHC, the International Association for Health Coaches, so after you graduate you can receive an additional certificate to formalize your credentials.


Can I use my course credit at IIN towards a Masters Degree?

Yes! The Institute for Integrative Nutrition has educational agreements with Maryland University of Integrative Health, Goddard College, SUNY Purchase and Excelsior College for graduates who wish to continue their education to achieve a bachelor’s or master’s degree.

But one of the absolute best thing is the friendships I’ve seen created during and after the program. There are 100,000+ students and graduates in 150 countries around the world, and it’s through this community that you can really find your niche and calling.

One other thing that I have to mention is their work in Washington. IIN is working tirelessly for the rights of Health Coaches and citizens of our country to ensure everyone has a right to good health.

Yes! There are six live calls with your unique coaching group, which is your small group of peers led by an IIN graduate. This is where you'll discuss finding your niche, coming up with your elevator pitch, making your voice heard and so much more. I loved having this throughout the program because it kept me on track and made me feel like I was part of a true school.

There is also an interactive Facebook group specifically for your class, where you can share and connect with other individuals. Each person chooses their accountability partner, which is your person to keep you on track throughout the program. Both my partner and I had hormone balancing and candida cleanse-niches and were able to support each other throughout the semester and created programs together when we both created our businesses.

With IIN, you truly feel supported - you are part of a large tight-knit community!

Today, nearly of my friends and colleagues are graduates of IIN because we just get each other! We know we value the same things and see health and life from a HOLISTIC point of view!
