Consider the possibility of leveraging three distinct coaching models to enhance client outcomes…such a possibility is now a reality! As a Certified Integrative Health Coach, you can be a force in the evolving landscape of healthcare by emphasizing prevention, seizing opportunities, taking a proactive approach, and using easily accessible data to optimize client health and well-being.
Your desire to become a Certified Integrative Health Coach may stem from a personal quest for transformation, or maybe you want to elevate your proficiency and experiment with novel coaching methods. This program caters to both objectives by providing detailed training using our own Triad coaching model.
What is the Integrative Health Coaching Triad?
To support coaching that targets optimal health, this professional training course will teach you how to focus on three vital areas of your client’s needs:
Once you complete your studies, you will know exactly how to improve gut microbiome health, improve metabolism and provide a specific eating strategy based on the science of macronutrients.
When you become certified, you will understand how to use different strategies with your clients, based on your assessments and your client's specific goals.
This program is based on your client's biometrics and is highly personalized and in-depth, using the following to build the Triad Coaching Model:
gut microbiome and its effects on the body
metabolic health and avoiding metabolic-related illness
personalized nutrition based on client biometrics
Integrating these critical elements ensures your clients reach their very specific and measurable goals that are developed for them uniquely. Your training will guide you through a comprehensive approach that includes dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, and targeted supplementation. You will learn to include aspects of metabolic coaching with your client in our Triad model, toward a goal of personalized nutrition plans developed for each client you serve. This gives you more options, and your client will see better results.

At-Home Diagnostics: A 6.3 Billion Dollar Industry
This course gives you a new opportunity to participate uniquely in the coaching industry and benefit while coaching clients to specific health, fitness and wellness goals.
The rapid growth of at-home diagnostic testing has resulted in dozens of biometric testing options for consumers, it’s not surprising that this swelled to its highest point ever in 2020. One home diagnostic test company reported $175 million in revenue, with a projection of 6.5 billion in sales by the year 2027.
Consumers enjoy using these tests because they are more accessible and affordable. They can also be tailored for virtually any diagnostic evaluation. This is nearly a perfect assessment tool for the CIHC.
At-home diagnostics are helping to fuel the need for Integrative Health Coaches. While extremely convenient, many consumers need support, direction or information related to test results. When you become a CIHC, you will feel confident talking with your client about these vital matters of good health. Getting certified will arm you with the knowledge, skills and abilities to facilitate successful client outcomes.
