Integrative Nutrition Holds First Latin American Conference in Mexico City

This past weekend, over 100 Integrative Nutrition graduates flew in from cities across Mexico, South America, the United States, and Europe to join Founder, Director, and Primary Teacher Joshua Rosenthal at Integrative Nutrition’s first conference in Latin America. The landmark event reflected Integrative Nutrition’s commitment to empowering its international community and spreading a ripple effect of health and happiness across the globe.

Held at Club de Industriales, this special conference was organized by four exceptional graduates: Ana Arizemendi and Georgina Ferrer, both class of 2011, and Gabriela Bambrick-Santoyo and Caren Laboy, both class of 2012. The focus of the conference was on vocational training, confidence building, and creating a sense of community among Spanish-speaking graduates.

Joshua opened the event with an inspiring speech that emphasized how Spanish-speaking Health Coaches play a crucial role in reversing the global health crisis. The Hispanic community is widely underserved, and Health Coaches who work with this community by providing information and inspiration are true leaders.

U.S. Marines Turn to Mindful Meditation Practice for Peace

Meditation is often linked to Buddhists and yogis, but now the U.S. Marine Corps is incorporating mindful meditation practice in its training to bring about calm, awareness, and healthy recovery for Marines in deployment.

Last Tuesday, the Marine Corps began its eight-week training course called Mindfulness-Based Mind Fitness Training or “M-Fit” with about 80 Marines. The exercises are designed to help Marines stay alert and mindful under pressure, as well as relieve stress from extensive deployments and combat.

Nearly 30 percent of returning U.S. soldiers are affected with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to long and multiple deployments, with symptoms that include flashbacks, avoidance, and overwhelming anxiety. The Marine Corps has reason to believe that mindful meditation training will have a positive impact for Marines in high-stress situations – and there is scientific evidence to support that this age-old practice does help people find calm and relief.

Notes from IIN’s Founder: Creating an Abundance Mindset

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.

When I started the school, money was the furthest thing from my mind. I loved teaching and giving, and I really wanted to share my heart and soul with people because I saw so many suffering from eating poorly. I was happy eating kale, and I didn’t care that I was completely broke.

But I saw that my dream to help people become happier and healthier wasn’t going to happen until I started learning and focusing on the flow of resources, including money, and how I could attract them to me.

Many of our students and graduates focus more on helping people get healthier than on their income. Money can be a challenging issue. How you grow up and your situation around money impacts you later on. What are your money beliefs?

For many people, what separates them from a life of fulfillment and income is getting the two aligned. It’s a matter of shifting your mindset to one of abundance. It’s possible to do the kind of work that you love that contributes to other people and earn a good income at the same time. You can have both.

Can a Vision Board Help You Achieve Your Goals?

If you’ve read The Secret, or seen Oprah’s special on vision boards, you’ve probably heard that a vision board can be a very effective tool for setting intentions and achieving your goals.

What exactly is a vision board?

It’s simply a visual representation of your goals: images that represent all the things you’d like to accomplish in your life—who, what, and where you want to be. The power of this technique comes from the fact that it allows you to spend time getting clear on your goals, hopes, and vision for your future. Creating a vision board as a way to focus on the things you want to achieve can help improve motivation, boost self-confidence, and foster behaviors that lead to success.

How to make your own vision board:

Become Your Dream and Create a Ripple of Health and Happiness

It was 50 years ago in August that Martin Luther King, Jr., moved hundreds of thousands to action with his dream of making the world a better place.

And it was over 20 years ago that Integrative Nutrition started another movement with a dream of making the world a healthier, happier place.

How can a school do that?

Integrative Nutrition believes that people experience a powerful personal transformation by getting healthier. By using their knowledge to teach others how to be healthier and happier, they create a ripple effect that changes the world.

Thousands of graduates who have made their own personal transformation are now helping others get healthier and happier.

Maura Knowles Develops a Healthy Baked Morsel Company

When Maura (Mo) Knowles wasn’t pursuing her career as an actor and singer, she was working on building her healthy baked morsel company with her dad Mac in mind. A diabetic and heart patient, Maura’s dad would beg her for something sweet, so she decided to go make it herself. After a trip to the grocery store, she came up with delicious morsel treats that are vegan, gluten and sodium free, with no sweeteners or preservatives. The whole family ate them up and so she decided to keep them coming! She calls her company Mac-n-Mo's.

Why We Give Back: Season of Giving

If you are healthy and happy, you have more energy to do what you love. Your enthusiasm for life is radiant, and it inspires others. You can help lift others around you by teaching them what you know.

The gift of having more in life is that you have more to give.

That’s what we strive to do at Integrative Nutrition. As much as we can, we reinvest into our community by giving more support and advanced training to our students and graduates. And we support charities doing great work that complements our mission of making the world a better place.
