Become a Health Coach
If you’re considering studying Health Coaching either as a new profession, addition to a current profession or for personal gain to help you and your family, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition®(IIN) offers one of the most incredible, revolutionary, certified courses which I cannot recommend highly enough.
Not only is the course practically paced for those who cannot study full-time, but you also get coaching from some of the world’s leading giants in wellness and nutrition (wait till you see the list!)
Here is everything you need to know about becoming a Health Coach through INN.
Benefits of studying through IIN:
- The course duration is one year only.
- You can study online on your own pace.
- You do not need to lay out the same kind of money you would for a 4-year nutrition degree.
- If you are working while studying, the 15 hours per week workload is well suited to this.
- You have the opportunity to build a global network of other like-minded individuals.
- Receive international certification to practise anywhere in the world.
- IIN has now also introduced a 6-month accelerated course.
What can I do with my Health Coaching qualification?
Besides practicing as a Health Coach internationally, many graduates have used their knowledge to host wellness and nutrition workshops and retreats, produce food product lines, create corporate wellness and online programs, skincare lines, write books and engage in topical public speaking. The course is also a fabulous tool to expand your service offering if you are already practicing in the areas of wellness, nutrition or food service, fitness, family care, and mindfulness. Providing students and parents with nutritional advice as a wellness speaker at parenting events and putting together school programs and workshops for kids is also a brilliant way in which this course has benefitted even non-practicing Health Coaches.
Who are the lecturers I will be working with?
Get ready to be coached by a star-studded group of lecturers who are highly respected global wellness, medical and spiritual practitioners. Here are just a few:
- Deepak Chopra: Mind-body expert and bestselling author
- Oz: Cardiothoracic surgeon, author, and host of The Dr. Oz Show
- Arianna Huffington: Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post
- Andrew Weil: Arizona Centre for Integrative Medicine, Director
- Marion Nestle: Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Public Health, and Food Studies at New York University
- David Katz: Yale Prevention Research Centre, Director
- David Wolfe: World leader in raw food nutrition
- Mark Hyman: Institute for Functional Medicine, Chairman
What is the difference between a Nutrition degree and IIN’s qualification?
A nutrition degree focuses on the ‘food’ aspect of nutrition and wellness only. IIN, however, embraces a wider spectrum of wellness in identifying primary and secondary food. Primary food is classified as nourishment that you don’t actually eat. There are 11 different areas of which the main ones are exercise, spirituality, career, and relationships. When these areas of your life are in balance, food is secondary, although also important. You can eat the healthiest food in the world, yet if these aspects of your life are out of balance, you will not experience full health.
In addition, the dietary section of the course unveils over 100 dietary theories, with an additional year of access to the INN Nutrition Library allowing you time to explore the information in depth. This broad perspective is essential in implementing your individualistic approach in helping clients as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach.
IIN’s learner support and amazing opportunities
An international network of like-minded people.
A Facebook group is set up for your student group, allowing you to interact with other Health Coaches (in the making) from all over the world. This allows you to set up a global network that could benefit you professionally for many years to come.
Even though you may be studying online, the administrative support system is immediate and effective. The connections created are based on a community of people sharing a similar passion and helping each other succeed.
Your very own book launch
A six-month course is offered to IIN graduates taking a step-by-step look at self-publishing a book.
The Launch Your Dreambook course provides invaluable information and support in getting a book published.
Coaching and business knowledge
Even if you are already running a business, the coaching and business curriculums are extremely helpful in teaching you how to deliver your wellness knowledge to your clients and effectively communicating your insights. You may even find these modules helpful in general, communicating in both personal and professional relationships.
Is the course credible?
IIN qualified coaches are employed by highly ranked departments and celebrities. The course is
licensed by the NYSED – New York State Education Department. On graduation, you can take the International Association for Health Coaches exam as an option. This will certify you as an International Health Coach, able to practise anywhere in the world.
