Then get my answers to your Frequently Asked Questions about IIN:

You: Do you recommend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Connie?

Absolutely! Attending IIN was a fabulous, life-changing experience. I absolutely loved it, and I wholeheartedly
recommend that you speak to an admissions advisor now to learn more.

You: What are some of the things I can expect if I attend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition?

You will get so much from attending IIIN. For instance:

  1. You have the opportunity to attend or listen via Ipod to lectures by world-renowned speakers — big names like Deepak Chopra, Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Joe Mercola and, plus you learn from experts in self care, dancing, eating disorders — you name it, you get it! (Learn about the stupendous speakers here.) This, for me, was one of the big draws that prompted me to sign up for the school. These lecturers are amazing!
  2. You get to meet hundreds of amazing, high-energy, positive-thinking people from all over the country even the world. What’s so exciting is that you meet people all on your wave length — you’re all into eating healthfully, making a difference
    and becoming a better person. By attending IIN, it’s sort of like joining one big, health-minded, optimistic family. Whenever you meet anyone from IIN, you instantly bond. (Meet graduates here and notable alumni.)
  3. The curriculum is all encompassing. For instance, you learn about a variety of dietary theories,
    from Atkins to macrobiotics. (What other nutrition school does this? None of which I’m aware. Sure, as with any school or program, you may not agree or relate to everything you learn. But that’s perfectly OK. For instance, I disagree with the sweetener recommendations. But I can live with that, because that’s just one very tiny piece of what this wonderful school teaches. What’s that expression? Why throw out the
    baby with the bath water? You will LOVE all this instruction on conflicting theories! That’s my prediction.
  4. You get educated about the value and importance of what founder/director Joshua Rosenthal, MScEd calls “primary food.” I just love this concept — one that I’ve been advocating for years myself (using a different name). You’ll hear me talk about primary food on our Thursday call. So make sure to sign up here for the free Thursday teleseminar/webinarI
  5. You get to meet fabulous new friends! That is so cool!
  6. You are consistently educated, inspired and motivated. How can you not be
    when your fellow classmates are all sweet, dedicated, empowering
  7. You get much, much more than a nutrition education.
    You get a whole experience. For instance, you do fun, interactive
    exercises. You even attend meetings and study groups in your
    area.You connect with classmates in many ways.
  8. You learn about yourself as a person. Plus you’ll grow!
  9. You get lots of practical training to help you build your
    health-counseling career, which to my knowledge, no other nutrition
    program does to this extent. They teach you some really wonderful
    skills and techniques. The marketing instruction from Robert Notter is simply fabulous.
  10. You can chat with classmates through the wonderful, nurturing, fun online
    education community. On the “OC,” as we called it, you also can get questions
    answered, find out about upcoming programs, read articles, etc. (I spent a lot of time on the OC while attending IIN, because I was spending a lot of time home researching and writing my book SUGAR SHOCK! during this time.)  You can even
    participate in an alumni OC after you graduate.
  11. You’re greeted and helped by warm, welcoming, hard-working Graduate Leaders and professional staff members whether you attend live or through the distance learning program. Believe you me, they have one incredibly challenging job to do! (FYI, if you attend live in New York City starting in February, you may be able to meet me, because I’m applying to be a Graduate Leader.)
  12. Everything almost always runs smoothly. (They really do pull off major logistical miracles.)
  13. After you graduate, you’re still welcomed and invited to attend alumni conferences, continuing education teleseminars and functions. Plus, if you’d like to get more involved, you can attend immersion.

You: Can I really begin a career as a health counselor after attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition either live or through the distance learning program?

Absolutely. What’s so impressive about IIN is that you get such incredible training not only in nutrition principles but in how to build a career.

You: So, how would you sum up what you get from attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition either live or through the distance learning program?

To sum it up, I’d say that at IIN, you get a lot more than just a nutrition education. You get an exhilarating, expansive, nourishing, life-changing experience.

You: If I attend classes live in New York City, can I meet you and pick your brain about kicking sugar or building a health coaching career?

Yes, let’s meet for lunch one of the weekends. Not only that, but I will take you to lunch — my treat.

You: How would we meet if I sign up the distance learning program?

It would be my pleasure to give you a complimentary laser coaching call or just a fun Q & A if you attend the distance learning program.

You: How can I learn more about IIN?

Join us Thursday from 3 pm to 3:30 pm EST in a free teleseminar/webinar to find out about this amazing school and my experiences there. You’ll even get some tips to break free of your sugar habit, too. In fact, IIN was kind enough to post this on the Integrative Nutrition Blog about the sugar blues, too. (FYI, my figures are higher. People consume more like 170 to 190 pounds of sweeteners per year per person.)

You: How can I sign up?

It’s easy.

  1. Hi Connie – thanks for this blog post! I have been looking into IIN as well as several other programs for a few weeks now. IIN is at the top of my list…the only thing that is causing me to hesitate is lack of accreditation. I do believe the school offers a quality and research based education, but sometimes others, especially mainstream, discredit a person without a highly recognized piece of paper. My question for you is…in your coaching since graduating, how often do you get questioned about your title, health counselor (now coach?), or “called-out” by someone who doesn’t understand and might just consider the school a scam when only looking at accreditation?
    It seems I can find a lot of that online, but then again, most organizations out there have some type of negative web presence. So, I’m wondering how much of that occurs in “real life”?
    Also, do you know if after getting the IIN certificate, am I eligible to become a part of a professional or national organization, like NANP or other?

  2. Sorry about the delay in replying. Yes, you can become an associate member of NANP.
    To answer your question, I believe in IIN.
    If anything, people ask me what CHC means, if anything.
    I’ve found that it helps to have a unique niche and to build on skills you learn at IIN. For instance, I’m also a certified life coach, journalist and author.
    Please let me know how it goes!
    As for being “called out,” it doesn’t really happen, but I’m also a cer
