Video: What is a Health Coach?

Having a healthy body and mind is the foundation on which a happy, fulfilling life is built. And we all know how to keep ourselves healthy, right?

As the growing global health crisis indicates, that’s unfortunately not the case.

It’s remarkable how something as basic as eating healthily and exercising regularly has now become a daunting task. It’s also become incredibly complicated, with a new study every day telling us that what we thought was healthy actually isn’t, and vice versa. 

Marie Forleo Interview | IIN Depth

Joshua Rosenthal took a giant leap of faith when he decided to build Integrative Nutrition from scratch, and the result today is the largest nutrition school in the world, which turned twenty-two this year. When she was only twenty-two herself, Marie Forleo took a similarly risky leap, with equally inspiring results.

In this engaging discussion between two entrepreneurial visionaries, Marie explains why she left a lucrative career on Wall Street and turned down a “dream job” to follow her true dream—a dream her gut told her was right, no matter what her mind said. Today, she’s a bestselling author, TV host, life coach, and the founder of an entire empire aimed at inspiring women to live their best possible life.

David Katz on How to Educate Kids About Nutrition

Okay, we’ve got good news and bad news. First, the good: according to a new report from the CDC, obesity rates in the U.S. seem to finally be leveling off. Now for the not-so-good news: that same report shows that 42% of obese American youths between the ages of 8 and 15 perceive their weight as normal.

This lack of self-perception in children and adolescents is alarming, and makes it very likely that obese children won’t take steps to get to a healthier weight. What’s more, 35% of obese children go on to become obese adults, ensuring that the obesity epidemic is passed on to the next generation.

So how do we solve this problem?

Dr. Neal Barnard on How to Lower Cholesterol Naturally

Here’s to the power of food as medicine!

Niacin, a type of B vitamin, has long been prescribed to help lower cholesterol. However, two new studies suggest that it may actually do more harm than good.

The startling studies from New England Journal of Medicine showed that niacin can cause serious side effects and, what’s more, neither study showed any significant benefits to the drugs.

Is TellSpec About to Change the Food Industry? [VIDEO]

Technology has transformed the way we live—for better and for worse—and yet it hasn’t been able to combat the ongoing global health crisis. That might be about to change.

A new device called TellSpec provides a simple way for consumers to learn the truth about the food they’re putting into their bodies. By simply pointing the device at any edible item, consumers can learn the nutrient content and ingredients of their food, including any chemicals, allergens, or additives that might be cleverly disguised on the nutrition label.

The piece unpacks why Health Coaches are so essential in our current medical system, and the impact they’re beginning to have on how doctors interact with their patients. Specifically, while doctors continue to own the role of diagnosing diseases and prescribing medicines, Health Coaches are increasingly tasked with helping patients implement daily lifestyle changes.

VIDEO: Joshua Rosenthal Interviews Dr. Mehmet Oz

What role can Health Coaches play in the ongoing healthcare crisis in America? A very significant one, says Dr. Mehmet Oz, who recently sat down with IIN founder Joshua Rosenthal to discuss the issue.

Their probing conversation explored the different roles of doctors, patients, and Health Coaches in our current system, and how each can help contribute to a wellness revolution. Rather than overhauling the entire healthcare system, Dr. Oz says, Health Coaches should function as an added layer between doctors and patients, helping patients be healthier and doctors be better practitioners.
