What People Say About Integrative Nutrition

"Integrative Nutrition provided a place to feel safe while learning about what truly makes a healthy life! The speakers are very knowledgeable and provide wonderful resources when working to find just the right fit of foods and lifestyle for your clients and yourself.It truly made me realize that my 40's are the age of beginning not the middle or the end!

"Prior to graduation, I have had three clients and am now working to build up my business to include group counseling and am currently working toward starting a "healthy kids" camp beginning summer 2012."

- Erin Cipriani, Class of 2012


"Prior to starting IIN, I was a looking for my 'it', for the thing that was my calling. Things are growing in so many good ways that I have to pinch myself.

"I have a thriving private practice. I am building relationships with doctors in my community and have been asked to speak to local incoming medical students on the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle! I've run three group detoxes, with the last one selling out! And I was just published in an international magazine. I can confidently say that things couldn't have lined up the way they have if I hadn't attended IIN.

"IIN is an outrageously fantastic experience. One thing I have learned through my experience at IIN is to dream big, then dream even bigger than that... anything is possible!"

- Ashley Paquin, Class of 2012
