We were two decades ahead of the curve, and we are thrilled that the mainstream has finally caught on to what really works.
Here we are in 2012, with more than 40,000 students and graduates in 100 countries. We’re taking the world by storm and health coaching is finally getting the attention it deserves! Integrative Nutrition isn’t just a school; it’s a movement!
‘Chronic diseases such as obesity, hypertension, and diabetes wreck our quality of life and cost a fortune. In recent years, a new and intriguing concept has emerged in the prevention and treatment of chronic illness: the health coach.’ –CBS News, October 2009
What is a Health Coach?
A Health Coach is a wellness authority and supportive mentor who motivates individuals to cultivate positive health choices. Health Coaches educate and support clients to achieve their health goals through lifestyle and behavior adjustments. Proper health coach training programs and health coach certification ensure that Health Coaches know how to work with diverse groups of people and equips them with the tools necessary to best fit the needs of their clients.
‘The primary objectives of health coaching are to educate the patient regarding self health management and to encourage patients in taking a more proactive role in staying healthy.’-Medical Economics, Nov 2010
As more and more awareness is given to preventative care, health coaching is seen as a vital aspect of creating healthy lifestyle changes. Health Coaches are becoming recognized as essential and integral parts of people’s health and wellbeing. Not only is there a shift to live healthier lives, people are finding that helping others become healthier makes their lives better too.
There is now a huge demand for Health Coaches. Not only are doctors hiring more Health Coaches than ever before, but patients are learning that working with a Health Coach is one of the most effective ways to improve their health. And as more and more medical professionals recognize the vital importance of Health Coaches, the demand will grow. Dr. Michael Roizen recently wrote a Huffington Post article echoing this notion saying Health Coaching is the key to new job creation.
We are on the cutting edge of a health revolution! Chronic diseases are the epidemic of our generation and people desperately need nutrition and lifestyle guidance to find their way back to health. That’s where YOU come in. With health coach certification through Integrative Nutrition, you will have the knowledge and skills to lead your clients to greater health and happiness.
