While I was in the thick of the gut healing journey with my daughter, I had a call with my traditional foods coach who could tell I was so passionate about everything that I was learning and observing, that when she suggested maybe I could help other mothers doing similar work in the future, all I could think of was YES. It just felt so right to be part of the change our children need by sharing what I was learning.
I still remember walking out of our pediatric allergist's office full of relief and joy after getting the news my daughter's test results showed she had resolved her allergies in RECORD TIME - something he'd only seen once before even acknowledging my efforts and dedication had made a difference, despite not originally being supportive - only to face the bleak faces of the parents sitting in his waiting room. And I recognised those looks - despair, confusion and overwhelm. I also knew what they were going to hear in their appointments - the same conventional advice parents have been getting for decades. The same advice I got. Just bad luck. Nothing to do but wait and see. Here's some stronger steroid cream. I was glad for us that I took that leap of faith but I was sad for them. I saw first hand what an powerful difference could be made and while doctors play a vital role, they don't always have the time or skills to help support us towards reaching our health goals.
Studying the Health Coach Training Program (HCTP) with IIN helped me make a real difference in the lives of many through establishing my own holistic wellness practice - so if you're in a place where you think this may be for you too, I hope this outline is helpful for you.
It's not all sunshine and roses - this is important work that involves guts, commitment and energy. There will be times you cry out of happiness seeing results you helped facilitate, and times you sob in frustration but when it comes to fulfilling careers, I can't think of anything else I'd rather do.
I see my time with IIN as providing the foundation for the work I do now, and resonated deeply with their encouragement for us to pursue our own personal development, investigate our own healing journeys and to question everything. This was important to me as I didn't want to just blindly follow a strict curriculum that offered no room to move.
The IIN training program is a year-long course with a comprehensive curriculum that covers over 150 dietary theories, encouraging a holistic foundation, not just focusing on food but other elements that impact our sense of well-being and combines coaching techniques with practical business resources to help students set up and market their own clinics. It's a proven program with over 100,00 graduates and is 100% online, so you can study when it's convenient for you.
I easily managed the study with an active toddler and found it flexible, often listening to lectures in the car with my husband that led to some awesome discussions. There are no academic prerequisites outside of a high school qualification and intakes are approximately every two months.
The course is entirely online over 40 modules, with a few breaks throughout the year so students can catch up if needed. You can work at your own pace as long as you fulfil the graduation requirements. Many students work full-time, raise children or have other responsibilities.You'll also meet heaps of like-minded people. I am still in touch with many of my classmates.
There is a cost to enrol because like any tuition, this is an investment into a future career and there is a lot of value and resources provided. You can pay in full, or with payment plans.
