Chopra, Oz, Weil among educators at nation's largest nutrition school
NEW YORK, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrew Weil. Barry Sears. Debbie Ford. Deepak Chopra. Geneen Roth. Mark Hyman. Mehmet Oz. Michael Jacobson. Neal Barnard. Walter Willett.
They share at least two things in common: They're all educators at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and they've all chosen to work with the school's founder and primary instructor Joshua Rosenthal to develop students into health counselors. These health and wellness elite are part of the largest nutrition school in the world and the only nutrition school whose curriculum addresses all dietary theories.
For more than 15 years, Integrative Nutrition has combined the knowledge of more than 100 different dietary theories -- teaching traditional philosophies as well as modern concepts such as the USDA pyramid, the glycemic index, The Zone, the South Beach Diet and raw foods.

"We spend an exorbitant amount of money on medications and operations while spending virtually nothing on prevention, education and holistic health. Wouldn't it be better to spend money asking the question, 'What would it take to have a country full of healthy, happy people?"
While Chopra, Oz and Weil can usually be found talking to a large consumer audience through their books, conferences or the Oprah Winfrey Show, they speak at Integrative Nutrition to mentor a growing generation of health counselors.
"This is not just a lecture," said Willett, chairman of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health. "We are teaching new ambassadors of health and wellness to take the collective knowledge they're gathering at Integrative Nutrition and have an impact on the health of our nation."
Rosenthal, who handpicks his guest lecturers and personally invites
them to be a part of his school, has more than 25 years experience in the
