What is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach?
An Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (INHC) is a highly-trained nutrition coach who uses the science of food to support clients in healthy eating. Their training focuses on using food as medicine before supplementing with bottled vitamins and minerals. In addition to teaching food-based medicine, health coaches work along side of clients who desire individualized food and lifestyle plans to meet their unique needs and health goals. In other words, IVY's INHC works as your personal food consultant - customizing meal plans to support both you as an individual and your entire family. How refreshing!
What can integrative nutrition do for you?
Food choices can be an everyday struggle...or joy! An INHC will take their time to address every detail of your diet to limit the stress of decision-making. From grocery shopping, to meal prepping, to strategizing how-to-handle social gatherings...your health coach is on your side.
Some common concerns that INHCs address include:
High blood pressure
Crohns and Ulcerative Colitis
SIBO, Candida, IBS
What does it look like to work with a Health Coach?
During your initial appointment, your integrative nutrition health coach will unfold your current eating habits and lifestyle. Together, you will set attainable goals. In future appointments, your INHC will provide you with meal plans, strategies, and accountability. Your INHC can offer as much or as little guidance as you need including cooking classes, hourly detailed meal plans, grocery shopping guidance, and social gathering strategies.
Food is an integral part of our daily lives. Having support can make a huge difference in your quality of life. Chat with our INHC today!
