Notes from the Founder: How to Nurture Your Relationships

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!

Video: Jennifer Esposito on Living with Celiac Disease

Have your instincts ever told you something was wrong? No one knows more about the importance of listening to your gut than actress and Integrative Nutrition visiting teacher Jennifer Esposito.

Jennifer suffered from health issues ranging from rashes to anxiety her entire life, yet she failed to get the help she needed from medical professionals. It was only when she found a doctor who truly listened that she was finally able to identify the root cause of her symptoms: celiac disease. 

Jennifer is now not only a strong advocate for celiac awareness, but supports everyone’s right to be heard and get answers. Get inspired by Jennifer’s fighting spirit – watch this interview with her below!
