BECOME A CERTIFIED HOLISTIC HEALTH COACH
I studied at The Institute For Integrative Nutrition, also known as IIN, in 2017-2018. It was a big shift for my life and career. I was always interested in health and wellness, but learned so much more during that year! I also connected with amazing people from across the globe thanks to this program. Now, I am able to share this with others and help them on their journey, that is my biggest joy.

WHAT IS THE INSTITUTE FOR INTEGRATIVE NUTRITION?

In any case, IIN will inspire and empower you to transform your life and put you on the path to achieving your personal and professional goals.
WHAT IS A Holistic HEALTH COACH?
We live in a time where the top 3 causes of death (according to the WHO) are mostly dietary related illnesses: stroke, heart diseases and pulmonary diseases. In parallel, stress, anxiety, depression, mental illness etc. are at an all time high worldwide.
That is why there is a massive demand for a new approach to health care, one that not only focuses on treating diseases, but rather puts more effort into preventing those diseases to occur in the first place. Do you see the importance of Holistic Health Coaches?
A Holistic Health Coach is kind of like your best friend that won’t take shit and will kick your butt, because they want the best for you. It is also like a mentor and someone who can educate and support people on their journey to healing and creating new habits for better health through sustainable lifestyle changes and choices (we’re not talking fad diets here).
During their studies, Holistic Health Coaches acquire a broad understanding of many different dietary theories and tools to mentor people who seek to improve their overall health and wellbeing. IIN has a strong focus on the idea that health isn’t just what you eat, but recognizes that things like relationships, work/career, exercise, creativity and spirituality all play a huge role in our overall health. I know, right? This may sound totally normal to you, but it’s actually quite a revolutionary viewpoint compared to traditional nutrition and health care system which only focuses on treating disease or symptoms. IIN also strongly supports the concept of bio-individuality, which means that one size does not fit all. Another way to try to understand what a Holistic Health Coach is this: a Holistic Health Coach is essentially a life coach that focuses on general healthy lifestyle choices including food and self care.
A Holistic Health Coach is NOT, however, a nutritionist or someone qualified to prescribe any medications. It does NOT take the place of a general practitioner or any other form of psychological or psychiatric counsellor or doctor. A Health Coach is NOT supposed to replace any of the above, rather it is there to support and complement other health care professionals.
