Meet the Winners of the Happy, Healthy Moms Photo Contest

On Friday, we announced the Healthy, Happy Moms photo contest in honor of mothers everywhere, and we were thrilled by your response! Nearly 100 incredible women were nominated to win full enrollment at Integrative Nutrition. The three mothers who received the most votes are true inspirations and deserving recipients of the Health Coach Training Program.

Mothers make the world a healthier, happier place – first starting with their own families, and then expanding into schools, their communities, and beyond. Plus, moms who take care to improve their own health and happiness can do even more good in the world. We’re confident that these incredible mothers will spread a ripple effect that will transform the world! Meet our inspiring contest winners:

Trish Mara
“For eighteen years, I’ve taught special needs children. My strength has been helping students and their families find their potential. I’m grateful I’ve had the opportunity to be a positive influence on so many children. During this time, I singly raised two sons. Both are productive professionals who’ve given me much joy and pride. I was recently diagnosed with lupus. Through changing my diet, I’m medication free and have never felt better. Colleagues seek my advice on dietary choices. I wish to fulfill my dream of becoming a Health Coach by enrolling in the next session with IIN.”

Integrative Nutrition Gives Back to Celebrate Earth Day

I founded Integrative Nutrition over twenty years ago with the mission to make the world a healthier, happier place. When people are healthy and happy, they can achieve more and enhance the lives of people around them. They have the energy to give back, do work that inspires them, and educate others to be healthy and happy. This process of paying it forward spreads a ripple effect of health and happiness around the world.

That’s why at Integrative Nutrition, we invest in our community and donate to charities that are doing great work. When we support each other, together we can truly make a difference.

In April, more than 200 new students enrolled in our Health Coach Training Program in response to our Earth Day giving charitable donation drive. Thanks to our passionate community, we donated over $10,000 to Earth Day Network’s healthy schools initiative. This movement is dedicated to bringing attention to the connection between school environments, student health, and academic success.

Lindsay Mack Helps Women Become Empowered and Nourished

Since graduating from the Health Coach Training Program last year, Lindsay Mack has built a successful career around empowerment, knowledge, and self-love.

As a resident actor turned Health Coach who treated her lifelong anxiety and depression with diet and lifestyle changes, Lindsay now teaches other women that self-healing in an all-natural way is possible.

This is why her company Sophrosune Wellness emphasizes body communication and self-love instead of cutting calories or dieting. Lindsay believes that with a healthy and balanced frame of mind, the desired weight will come effortlessly.

Notes from IIN’s Founder: Spring Detox Your Routine for Health and Happiness

Joshua Rosenthal, Founder, Director, and Primary Teacher, of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, shares his wisdom about creating a healthy, happy life that helps transform the world.

Spring is a season of rebirth and renewal. You can see the first signs outside –green leaves, growing grass, and early flowers blossoming.

This season is also commonly thought of as a time for cleansing. Many people decide that they are going to go on a fast or detox, especially if they have put on weight during the winter months. Some clean clutter from their homes. Others transition into a new job or career.

Video: Join the Global Health Revolution to Change the World

Since Integrative Nutrition was founded in 1992, it has grown from a small classroom of passionate individuals in New York City to an incredible international community of now nearly 34,000 and graduates in 106 countries worldwide.

From South Korea to Jamaica to Malaysia, the Integrative Nutrition community is creating big change in their communities and beyond. With the spread of the global health crisis, the demand for Health Coaches around the world has never been greater. We asked our international students and graduates to tell us about their work and the need for Health Coaches in their countries, and this is what they told us:

Build Your Own Health Coaching App with Visionary Lindsey Witmer

“Supporting other Integrative Nutrition grads who are doing incredible things is one of my favorite things to do.” These are the inspirational words of 2011 graduate Lindsey Witmer, who in 2011 received a Seed Grant from Integrative Nutrition to help fund an initiative to make the world a better place. Lindsey developed MyOmBody, an integrative health app that was called one of the “Ten Startups to Watch” by the Boston Globe and one of the “Five New Startups Worth Mentioning” by the Boston Business Journal.

These days, Lindsey is busy with her next project: making it possible for all Health Coaches to have their own customizable apps that send clients or potential clients a daily fact or health tip. If you’re interested in developing your own app, let Lindsey know! Read on to get inspired by Lindsey’s energy, optimism, and vision.

A Live Interview with Dr. Walter Willett!

We are so excited to announce that Integrative Nutrition will be hosting a live interview with renowned physician and nutrition researcher, Dr. Walter Willett this Thursday, March 28th at 2pm Eastern Daylight Time.

Dr. Willett is a distinguished guest speaker at Integrative Nutrition, and Chairman of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health. His groundbreaking research in the Nurses Health Study II is one of the largest, long-term studies of women’s health ever conducted. It has helped us understand women’s health issues, especially the important connection between certain diet and lifestyle choices and chronic illnesses such as heart disease and cancer.
