The “A-Ha” Moment That Led Me to Health Coaching

There are times when life knocks so loudly on your door, it's impossible to ignore the message. That happened to me five years ago, the moment I realized that I needed to become a Health Coach. 

Several years prior, I was suffering with multiple health issues that overlapped and fed into one other. Seasonal allergies precipitated chronic sinus, which encouraged random and painful migraines. Infertility and miscarriages led to a hormonal imbalance, which caused sadness and depression. A compromised immunity from too many pharmaceuticals led to fibromyalgia and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. And everything seemed to point to weight gain; the excess weight led to all of the above.

“What If I Don’t Say the Right Thing?”

Early on as a health coach. one of my own personal fears was not saying the "right" thing.  Not giving just the right advice or guidance. I imagined myself sitting in front of my client tripping over my words.  Scrambling to look through notes or books to find exactly what I was supposed to say to this person who was paying me to help them get healthy.  There were times, if I had let it, that this fear could have actually stopped me from moving forward as a coach.

The Surprising Way I Got My First Clients

Before I begin, let me assure you I was incredibly pessimistic about starting my own business. Having worked for years in the advertising industry, I was used to working for someone else and getting a regular (sizable) paycheck.

Run my own business? Be an expert? Yeah, right.

Were these clients going to just fall from the sky?

Actually, yes. That’s sort of what happened once my mindset shifted. Let me explain.

During my time at IIN, I was still working full time. I was feeling stumped about how I would ever attract clients as a health coach. It was a really stuck, hopeless feeling.

And then, the unthinkable happened. I was laid off. Boom. With no motivation to find another advertising job, I knew I had only one option. I had to find some health coaching clients. Like, now.

That shift made all the difference.

Integrative Nutrition Donates $117,000 in Support of GMO Labeling

We are thrilled to announce that with your help, Integrative Nutrition has succeeded in donating $117,000 to four organizations that share our mission to fight for GMO labeling!

People have the right to know what’s in their food and make informed decisions about what they eat. While genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are banned in many countries around the world, the United States doesn’t even require labeling of genetically modified foods. Foods that contain GMOs are ubiquitous on grocery store shelves, and many people unknowingly consume them every day.

We at Integrative Nutrition are committed to supporting efforts to require GMO labeling, and we can make an even bigger impact when we join forces with like-minded organizations that are also advocating for consumer rights.

Integrative Nutrition Holds Meet-Up in Boston [VIDEO]

Earlier this week, over 700 students and graduates from across New England joined Joshua Rosenthal in Boston at the Westin Copley Place for an evening of lectures, networking, and inspiration. Reflecting Integrative Nutrition’s commitment to building personal connections with its global student body, this event was a wonderful reminder of how special it is for the IIN community to gather all in one place!

The focus of the inspiring evening was on bio-individuality – one person’s food is another person’s poison, so it’s up to each person to find what works for his or her body; how to create a successful future as a Health Coach; and why primary foods are the real food for your soul. Graduates shared inspiring stories of how they were transformed by IIN and healed themselves of disease, launched fulfilling new careers, and much more.
