How did your life change after enrolling?

IIN took my outlook on this business to a whole new level! It was an amazing program that not only balanced all the important aspects of health, it also was such an amazing step-by-step guide to running this as a very professional business. Along the way, implementing all I learned, and being my own first client has been a journey I am forever grateful for! No matter how much one thinks they know, there is always room to grow and learn! My biggest personal take away was re-creating a more healthy relationship and perspective with my own sleep and self care!! I am very empowered and inspired from all I learned throughout this entire program. It couldn't have been put together any better than it already is. This a 5 diamond program!

What were you doing prior to enrolling at Integrative Nutrition?

I have been a psychotherapist for 20 years. For the last 10 years I have been very interested in holistic health, and incorporating it into my practice. I have seen so many people crippled with pharmaceuticals trying to rid themselves of mental health diagnosis. I wanted something better for them, so I started on a journey of health and wellness research. It has transformed my life and the lives of so many clients.

How did your life change after enrolling?

I began to incorporate the health protocols I was learning through IIN with my psychotherapy clients. They were very interested in what I had to offer. Every person who came through my office was evaluated through the three part person: Spirit, Soul & Body, and how we could use each area for healing. It has transformed my practice.and inspired from all I learned throughout this entire program. It couldn't have been put together any better than it already is.

Ximena Yanez Soto

Parker, Mexico


What were you doing prior to enrolling at Integrative Nutrition?

I was working as CFO at the Mexican Fund for the Conservation of Nature, one of the most successful environmental funds in Latin America. I have always felt driven to work for a better world to benefit us and next generations. While working there, I believed I was pursuing my life mission, as the Fund allocates financial resources to implement conservation initiatives, and plays a major role protecting Mexico’s vast biodiversity.

How did your life change after enrolling?

Not only did IIN complement what turned out to be my passion, but prepared me to communicate and engage people in their own transformations. I was given tools to connect with their personal stories, to listen deeply and truly from a place in my heart, to open the conversation in order to help them understand where they are, and to recognize that wellbeing and happiness are the result of an intricate array of physical, psychological, and emotional components. Now I know that I am not supposed to change anybody, I’m only the channel that will help them look for their own answers. I intend to walk by their side as they shift to a better and healthier life.

Sarah Sather

Regina, Saskatchewan, Canda

What were you doing prior to enrolling at Integrative Nutrition?

Prior to enrolling at IIN, I was at a really rough time in my life. I was unhappy in my relationship, unhappy in my career, and I struggled with digestive issues and anxiety. I was dreaming of a bigger life. I was dreaming of the career of my dreams, relationship of my dreams, and overall…life of my dreams. IIN has made these dreams of mine become reality and I am forever grateful.

How did your life change after enrolling?

This has been an incredibly transformational year for me, with lots of huge life changes. I am forever grateful for IIN. I learned that health is about so much more than just eating well and exercising. It is about having healthy relationships, social support, a career we love, financial stability, finding time for creativity, and bringing more joy and laughter into our lives. This past year I have stepped out of my comfort zone more times than I can count. I left a marriage that I had not been happy in for a number of years, I moved into a small, simple place that I now call home, I own my own business, I have greater confidence, I have formed new social connections and mended old ones, and I am continuing to follow my life long passions.
