New York, NY (PRWEB) March 15, 2013
New York, NY (March 15, 2013) – The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), the world’s largest nutrition school, is proud to announce that Frank Lipman, MD and Gabrielle Bernstein have joined as guest speakers and will be featured in the curriculum of the Health Coach Training Program.
Dr. Lipman is an internationally recognized expert in the field of integrative medicine. As the founder and director of the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City, his personal brand of healing is a customized blend of Western medicine and acupuncture, nutritional counseling, vitamins and herbs, relaxation techniques, physical therapy, and bodywork.
As a leader in the field of functional medicine, Dr. Lipman aims to cure the root cause of illness rather than treat symptoms. He is a passionate proponent of whole foods and healthy living and advocates for Health Coaches as a way to help his patients make meaningful and sustainable lifestyle changes.
“I am thrilled to join Integrative Nutrition as a guest speaker,” said Dr. Lipman. “I believe that health coaching is the next frontier in true health care reform. As a nation, we are skilled in crisis care and treating life-threatening diseases, but fail at preventing chronic illnesses such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and many forms of cancer. Health Coaches play a crucial role in providing personalized one-on-one care to help support patients through important lifestyle and behavioral changes. I personally employ three Health Coaches at my practice, and all of them were trained at Integrative Nutrition.”
Gabrielle Bernstein is the bestselling author of May Cause Miracles and Spirit Junkie – A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles. Featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday as one of the next generation’s thought leaders, Gabrielle empowers and connects women through her social networking site HerFuture.com.
Gabrielle will bring her unique inspirational style to the curriculum in order to empower students to love their bodies, cultivate their own strengths, and create the lives they want for themselves.
“I am so pleased to welcome both Gabrielle and Dr. Lipman to the Integrative Nutrition community,” said Integrative Nutrition Founder, Director, and Primary Teacher Joshua Rosenthal, MScEd. “We are committed to exposing our students to cutting-edge new concepts, thoughts, and theories, and these two leaders are both at the forefront of health and wellness. The knowledge and inspiration they impart will empower our students to be more even successful Health Coaches, spreading a ripple effect of health and happiness in their communities and beyond.”
