Bloating, cramping, wild mood swings … for some women, getting their periods each month is debilitating. Nicole Jardim, Class of 2010, was once in the same crippling boat. Her symptoms improved when her doctor put her on the pill, but when she experienced a host of new health problems, she knew there had to be a better way.
Integrative Nutrition is more than a school; we’re a movement of passionate individuals who are committed to making the world a better place. Above all, we’re a movement of strong, powerful women. Our incredible community ranges from female entrepreneurs who have started their own health coaching practices, product lines, and businesses to stay-at-home moms who are fighting for healthier school lunches.
I’m inspired by all of our students and graduates who are spreading a ripple effect of health and happiness around the world and making the world a better place for women.
Few foods have as controversial a history as the incredible, edible egg. Long an affordable, protein-rich staple of diets around the world, the egg has been maligned for its high cholesterol content in recent decades.
High cholesterol is a serious health issue. A waxy substance that is naturally produced by your liver and is found in dairy, meat, and other food sources, cholesterol in excess can clog arteries and cause stroke and heart attack.
We all know how essential nutrition is to good health, but just as important as what you put in your body is what you put on your body. No one knows this better than 2006 Integrative Nutrition graduate Adina Grigore. Plagued by an un-diagnosable body rash, constant breakouts, and miserably itchy skin, Adina tried one prescription medication after another only to see her problems get worse.
Reaching a point of desperation, she quit all of her skincare products and medications cold turkey – and to her astonishment, her symptoms immediately improved. This moment catapulted Adina into a journey of research and discovery as she began to create her own truly all-natural skincare products.
When you hear the title “molecular toxicologist,” chances are you don’t think of inspiration and green juice. But Dr. Rhea Mehta, Class of 2014, isn’t your typical scientist. This doctor in molecular toxicology and nutritional biochemistry combines her background in research with her passion for healthy living to create a truly holistic health coaching practice.
Having left her job as a researcher to work full-time as a Health Coach, Rhea is now spreading a ripple effect of health and happiness one client at a time. She’s taking over our Instagram account today – follow along here to see what she’s up to!
What if your work was your life and your life was your work? Look no further than Eve Kessner, Class of 2011. This SoulCycle instructor, Health Coach, writer, and most importantly, mother of two wears many (healthy!) hats. She combines her numerous wellness passions into an exciting and meaningful career.

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.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, it’s a great time to think about the love that’s in your life. Not just romantic love, but also the connection you have with your friends, family, colleagues, and even pets. We all have a need to give and receive love. Love is food for the soul. Love nourishes the body, mind and spirit.
Many of us think of Valentine’s Day as a holiday of romantic love. But as February 14 approaches, what if we all shifted the focus of Valentine’s Day to an equally important form of love – loving yourself?
Integrative Nutrition visiting teacher Nitika Chopra believes that the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. For her, love means “being at peace” – feeling aligned with your true passion and knowing that you are being your most authentic self.
Watch below to hear how loving yourself can help you achieve your dreams and live a happier life!
