Congratulations To Our November 2021 Graduates!
The virtual ceremony for Toronto, Mississauga, Ottawa, Online Campuses held on Saturday, November 13th, began with a video highlighting IHN's curriculum so that graduates' families and friends could appreciate the enormity of the effort made, to complete the program. Opening remarks from Elizabeth Papadopoulos set the stage for the next video featuring the three (of many remarkable) pathfinders in natural nutrition–Linus Pauling, Max Gerson, and Bernard Jensen.
Special moments throughout the student’s time at IHN were shared, such as their unique “nutrition slogans”, being together on farm trips, herb walks, in cooking classes as well as snapshots into daily life on campus and online. We heard inspiring messages from our valedictorians, (some pictured above), who did a phenomenal job at representing other extraordinary human beings, their classmates, who shaped the experience at IHN into some of the greatest moments of their lives. The administration staff shared words of encouragement, congratulating graduates on their integrity to IHN's challenging academic requirements, their individual perseverance and collective passion for completing an intensive program!
A new and ever-more-skilled collective of CNPs are now equipped to enter the workforce, armed with the knowledge, drive and to carry on IHN’s mission of healing the planet one person at a time. 
Elizabeth Papadopoulos shared, "What an absolutely glorious day it is! The day has come, the end is here, and a new beginning is born. We are here today celebrating and honouring our graduating class of November 2021. Today we celebrate the hard work, dedication, and incredible achievements of our graduates. All of you have dedicated an incredible amount of effort during your time at IHN.

Faculty Feature | Angela Wright

“The main takeaway from my course that I wish for my students is critical thinking. I don't want them to just take my word on something, I want them to know the whys and hows. That way they can determine when something is appropriate for a client, and when it is not. We're not just a bunch of statistics - someone has to be the outlier, and you need to know when that is.”

We asked Angela what she loves about IHN and teaching her courses:

“I'm a big fan of 'a-ha' moments. When you can see the light bulbs turning on and the connections being made, that's pretty powerful. Those are the teachables that are going to stay with that student in their personal and professional life for a long time.

What I love about IHN is that everyone is welcome. Such diversity in our student population, and every one comes with their own story and reasons for diving into the realm of nutrition and holistic health. Everyone can benefit from knowing more about nutrition!“

Teaching at IHN since 2017
Vancouver Campus & Online Pacific Timezone 
Currently Teaching: Nutritional Symptomatology Part 1 & 2, Nutrition & Health: The Fundamentals, Comparative Diets

A NASA study found that several plant species are noteworthy for their air purifying abilities! In a February 15, 2021 article (3 minute read) by Nina Pullano, we learn that houseplants also photosynthesize and absorb carbon dioxide, while releasing oxygen. Remember though – your home is not a controlled environment. Northwestern University molecular biologist Luyi Cheng says “[While] plants can remove volatile organic compounds from the air in your home, it’s important to remember that the NASA study looked at plants in a closed chamber”. The NASA study included plants like Snake Plant and English Ivy, which can help improve your health and ease anxiety.

Chickpeas are one of the most nutritious snacks, enjoyed worldwide. Its name originates from the Latin word 'cicer' and is often referred to as garbanzo beans. Chickpeas appear in early history recordings in 3500 BCE in Turkey, and 6790 BCE in France. Although they are grown in over 50 countries, India produces the most chickpeas worldwide. The plant is grown for its nutritious seeds, which are an excellent source of protein, fibre, B vitamins, and minerals. They are a healthy staple of many cultures and are easy to incorporate into meals. We recommend this Cozy Chickpea Chili recipe by IHN graduate Jennifer Linton.
