What are the differences between the different IHP Levels?

Level 1 teaches you to become world-class in helping people with customizing Diet Bio-Individualization, Exercise Programming, Stress Reduction, Toxin Removal, Rest & Resetting the Nervous System, Emotional Balance, Supplement Protocols, and creating a Success Mindset. Level 2 builds upon that knowledge of the DESTRESS Protocol® and provides education on how to read at-home lab tests.

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! Each module is released 1 week apart from each other upon enrolling to help set a steady pace, but we recommend taking at least 2 week per module to fully absorb the material. Besides this drip feature of each module, the time it takes to complete the course can be self-paced and you decide when you actually start and finish!

Will I get a certificate if I am only taking the educational component?

No, the diploma or certificate of achievement is reserved for those that complete the exams at each level. In the educational component you will still receive all the education, but since you are not required to pass the quizzes you will not have demonstrated mastery of the material and therefore we cannot confer a certificate of completion or achievement.

Can I pause my membership?

There’s no need to pause a membership since you can take as long as you need to study the material and then pass the exams.

How long does it take to complete the IHP Certification?

The Level 1 IHP® certification will take most people about 3-6 months and Level 2 will also take about 3-6 months. Each module is released 1 week apart from each other to help set a steady pace, but we recommend taking at least 2 week per module to fully absorb the material. Besides that, you can go at your own pace! To become both Level 1 and Level 2 IHP® Certified you should plan for about 3 hours of study time per week for 6-12 months. The more you dedicate time to your study, the faster you will move through and master the material.

Can you become an Integrative Health Practitioner if you live internationally (outside of the United States)?

Since IHP is an online health coaching certification and not a license to practice medicine, it can be used as health education coaching anywhere in the world.  The International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine (IPHM) and the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) are accreditations that we have that can help you get insurance to practice internationally.

I live in a lab restricted state. Can I still take Level 2 if I live in NY?

US law currently prohibits at-home labs from being completed in the state of New York.

However, you can still benefit from the education provided in IHP Level 2! In addition, many people work virtually with clients in different states and are still able to provide them with access to these at-home lab kits.

Do I have a limited amount of time to complete my certification?
