It was an August evening, back in 1997. I was in NY visiting Banana Republic, one of the brands the company I worked for was doing business with.
Even though my meeting with Banana was the purpose of my travels, I somehow stumbled upon an integrative nutrition school that had just opened its doors in 1992.
It was called Institute for Integrative Nutrition and they trained people in a new way of understanding nutrition and its effects on health and well-being.
I remember smiling while packing to go back home, as I placed the school’s leaflet inside my suitcase. Even though the school was located in NY, a very long distance from Lima, Peru, where I was living at the time, everything about it rang a bell, so I couldn’t discard it.
Fast forwarding my story to 2022, it is with great joy that I announce I am a proud IIN graduate 👩🏼🎓🍏 and that I am officially offering my services as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach! ⭐️
It has been a long journey, both personally and professionally.
👩🏼⚕️ In 2017, I graduated as a Bachelor in Alternative Systems of Medicines, in India, where I learned about the dietetic and nutrition care needed during the different periods and stages of life, and the specific diet therapy for several disease conditions, as well as the physiology, biochemistry, pathology, and clinical medicine related to nutrition.
In my private practice, I started noticing among my patients that those who had experienced trauma had difficulties in developing self-care and a healthy lifestyle.
👩🏼💼 My IIN training is the missing piece of the puzzle: I have learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories, including Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between, along with cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention.
So, you see… dreams come true… and in perfect timing 💫
If you have been seeking to start your own journey of self-discovery, bring balance to important elements of your life, and find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you, schedule an initial Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching consultation with me ❤️
Are you ready to make your dreams come true? If so, I’m ready to support you!
