The November #IIN Conference Recap!


The November #IIN Conference Recap!

Nova Jade* ~ Ambassador For Health + Happiness!

What a weekend it has been!

My 31st birthday was yesterday, and I have just finished being immersed in the most inspiring learning at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition’s November Live Conference, which was broadcast live from New York City, November 8 and 9th, 2014.  Herein is my recap!

By the way, this is one of my longest posts, but I wanted to make sure I covered as much as possible, though I only highlighted everything I experienced this weekend. 🙂

Ready? Let’s dive in…

International Participants join the stage at the November IIN Conference!

The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, or IIN, is celebrating it’s 20th year and is THE World’s Largest Nutrition School.  At this weekend’s conference, there were students attending live and via online from places including: Moldova, London, Canada, Kuwait, Mexico, Poland, South and West Africa and Australia, in addition to the USA!

IIN is a GLOBAL community.

I am glad to be a part of the ripple as a current student. My graduation is February 2015, and in the time I have been a student, I have learned way more invaluable information and experienced transformation more priceless than my tuition can be “valued” at.

Part of the invaluable information and priceless transformation has happened “outside” of the classroom, via the LIVE Conferences.

[ The Conference Speakers ]

We had a lot of great Keynote speakers, as well as past and present graduates who shared their stories throughout the conference.  Here were some of my favorite speakers of the weekend (Click on the images to see the comment threads on Facebook):

 IIN is great at bringing World Class Education to the students and graduates it serves, and I’m honored to have learned from these wonderful speakers and others this weekend!

[ My Top 5 Highlights ]

I don’t know where to begin.  But I will share with you 5 Highlights that I learned that you should know about to further your health, happiness and WHOLEness.

Remember: you can click the images to head to join/read the Facebook threads for the highlights!

  1. You can invest in your future, right now.  Here are the tools that Manisha Thakor Recommended (PS: Read more About Manisha to know why you may want to listen to what she says!)Screen shot 2014-11-09 at 2.55.45 PM
  2. Your blue screen is messing with your health and sleep! I’m all about raising my vibration and consciousness, and I’m also an Early Adaptor.  If you are too, then this is for you!Daniel Vitalis introduced us to f.lux, which, “makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.”  Learn more and download it here: https://justgetflux.com/

    Just Get F.lux!
  3. Fermented vegetables can be easily homemade. Did you know all illness begins in the gut?  Did you know that a good way to keep a healthy gut is through fermented vegetables (probiotics)?Well, whether or not you knew it, making fermented foods is really easy, and with the Perfect Pickler, it is made even easier (and cheaper)! There’s no more excuses for a healthy belly! http://www.perfectpickler.comScreen shot 2014-11-09 at 4.07.20 PM
  4. Health Coaches are a viable solution.  “Bought” is a powerful film exploration into the big money field of Medicine.  Watch this informative trailer here: http://youtu.be/ckOVDMDiZbkScreen shot 2014-11-09 at 3.57.20 PM
  5. Health Coaches are on the rise and making an IMPACT! There is now a newly formed community of global Health Coaches, called the International Association for Health Coaches, which was spearheaded by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition‘s Founder, Joshua Rosenthal.I am a PROUD member! 🙂

    The International Association for Health Coaches is the world’s largest collection of Health Coaches and wellness professionals, dedicated to advancing the health coaching profession. You can view more info here: https://www.iahcnow.org/ and find us on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/International-Association-for-Health-Coaches/281723971928906

    We had the French Revolution. The American Revolution. Now it’s time for the Health Revolution, and WE are the solution!

[ Closing Remarks ]

So, the big question is “Are health coaches future of Health Care?”
Watch this short video and do let me know your thoughts:

Will Health Coaches be the future of healthcare? Doctors are trained to treat illnesses, but they do not help their patients change the behaviors that lead to them. Health Coach and IIN graduate Maria Marlowe explains why Health Coaches fill a unique role in the medical field that is becoming evermore crucial.

5 Tips To #Win The Battle Over #Food!


fork-207410

“5 Ways To Win The Battle Over Food”

So, You find yourself struggling with Food.  Maybe you have struggled for a day, for a week, months, years (or your whole life)? Well, the good news is that you CAN WIN the Battle Over Food!  The following 5 Tips will help you on your journey!

  1. Understand Food.  Food can be broken down into two categories: Primary Food and Secondary Food.
    Secondary Foods are what you EAT; Primary Foods, on the other hand, are what actually FUEL you.
  2. Get Your Primary Foods Balanced. Most people don’t actually have a problem with Secondary food, necessarily. What causes the binge (and under) eating, the controlling of food, etc is an imbalance of your Primary Foods, which are defined as: Relationship, Career, Physical Activity and Spirituality.  Knowing what they are can alert you to where you should focus on to get back the life you deserve!
  3. Ask Yourself, “Do I have an eating disorder, or do am I just love-deficient?” By the same token, can you ask yourself, “Am I depressed or just malnourished?”  I have had friends who have overcome eating disorders, and I personally have overcome deep, severe depression that was onset in childhood and heightened in my teens.  Sure, they are both valid diseases, and should be treated with the same respect and care as cancer; however, depression, eating disorders, etc, just like some forms of cancer, can usually all get better with love (especially self-caring love), a spiritual practice, doing what you love and getting outside to hike, or running at the gym. And eating whole, real foods.
  4. Eat more whole, real foods.  You want to know why you’re always hungry, tired, sick, (fill in the blank)? It’s because the food you are eating isn’t REAL.  They are literally UFO foods; foreign aliens that the body has to overcompensate to fend off.  You body is an intelligent super computer.  When you eat more whole, real foods, you make it smarter.
  5. Acknowledge you are a work in progress…  Integrating healthier lifestyle and eating habits isn’t an easy change, but made easier when you understand that practice makes better. Celebrate your small milestones, just as you do the big ones, and changing will occur (and stick).
  6. BONUS TIP:  Ask for support.  I used to feel like asking for support was a sign of weakness. But you and I both know that you only get weaker when you don’t have support!

Final words: No matter where you are right now, you can create your life.  All you have to do is take the first step!
Best success to you on your journey.  Remember: You CAN WIN the battle over food!

The #IINLive May Conference Recap


IINLIVEMAYCONF

#Selfie Mid-Dance during IIN Live May Conference (Not on Sugar)



THE INTRO TO THE RECAP:

The weekend of May 16th, I attended a conference hosted by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN). The 2-day learning extravaganza took place in NYC, and I attended virtually thanks to the advancement of live-streaming technology.  I frantically took notes that weekend, locked away in my room, much to the annoyance of one of my roommates and her friends who imbibed libations and immersed themselves in debauchery, because, as she later would berate me, she thought I was “not being friendly”.

Alas, I am an empathic introvert, AND seeing that the conference wouldn’t just pause for me, I had no time to waste. I said a short hello and retreated…

I’m in school with HUGE goals and well, I guess sometimes those closest to you just don’t get it.

At any rate, during the conference, I really started to get excited about being a student at IIN and the integration of Health Coaching into my 11 years of being an award-winning DJ.  I began to see my future, to stand in it fully and confidently, and with the conviction that what I’m doing now would have to pay off later, so that I could not only help others, but be able to take breaks and hang out more often (though, I don’t drink alcohol anymore since Dec 7, 2012, minus a few hiccups the first few months).

BIGGEST TAKE~AWAYS:

There was so much information that I could literally just transcribe my notes, but I’ll spare you, gentle reader, and give you some points to ponder:

  • “Stress less” ~ Keri Glassman, Registered Dietician (Stress and Relaxation can’t live together, take a moment to enjoy an 8-count breath)
    • My thought: “Intend Relax”
  • “Have a Purpose + Follow it” ~ Nitika Chopra
  • Google/Bing/Wiki Doctor “Lissa Rankin”.  Enough said there. Or better yet, just go to her website. She dropped knowledge on a whole ‘nother level of vibrating! Three words: “Mind Over Medicine”.
  • “Know your priorities; priorities = prosperity” ~ Marie Forleo (She also had a wonderful 3-year Painted Picture exercise that really resonated with me)
  • Dr. Oz and IIN founder, Joshua Rosenthal are making major moves to get Health Coaches covered by Insurance.  That’s HUGE and makes for a very exciting time to become a health coach.
  • “Obesity does not equal calories, but it equals the composition of foods we eat… Metabolic rate, fat storage and hunger depends on dietary composition.” ~ Dr. Mark Hyman
  • GO SEE FED UP The movie!

THE CONCLUSION, THE VISION:

I am working towards a world that is Authentic, where being Youthful is Yummy and Prosperity reigns for all, and all these things are for the Highest Good Of All Concerned!
I am motivated to make sure the Earth and Her People come to Extreme Peace, Love and Goodness. I am grateful for my Vision. I know it. I am ready!

After the conference, it became clear to me that in 3-years, I will be in Radio (thanks to the 3-year Painted Picture exercise!)
So, stay tuned! 🙂
