Supporting Those Making A Difference
The Institute of Transformational Nutrition makes a difference far beyond our industry through support of charitable organizations and individuals who are truly making a difference in the world every single day.
The issues our veterans face when it comes to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can seem overwhelming. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, 22 veterans commit suicide every single day. Often, coming home doesn’t mean their war is over.
For some, it’s just beginning.
In honor of Zak Garcia and veterans everywhere, we have established the Sergeant Zak Garcia Scholarship Fund at the Institute of Transformational Nutrition. Each month, we award 10 full scholarships to our Certified Transformational Nutrition Coaching program to veterans so they can discover how to heal their bodies and hearts and help others do the same.
ITN is proud to recognize these deserving men and women, who have given so much of themselves already, and help them to obtain the education needed to continue their service not only to the United States but the world.
The Just Like My Child Foundation’s vision is to empower one million vulnerable adolescent girls and the communities they live in, thereby creating a dramatic improvement in the world’s health, economic stability and environment.
The Just Like My Child Foundation believes that empowered girls can change the world and the Institute of Transformational Nutrition is honored to support their vision.
ITN’s Founder, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia, was recently presented with their Children’s Champion award.
In the words of Just Like My Child’s founder, Vivian Glyck, "girls can change the world."
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and that number could grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
ITN generously contributes to the Alzheimer’s Association’s advances in research to end Alzheimer's and dementia while enhancing care and support methods for those living with the disease as well as their loved ones.
The support of this initiative at ITN is spearheaded by our Sales & Content Marketing Manager, Heather Riggs, CTNC. Heather captains a team each year for The Walk To End Alzheimer’s in honor of her amazing Mee-Mom and in loving memory of her great grandmother, great aunt, and great uncle, all of whom were afflicted with this heartbreaking illness.
ITN is honored to support the Davyd Whaley Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting Los Angeles artists. It honors Davyd’s desire to be of service to his fellow artists, through the awarding of grants that will enable others to follow their creative path with the sense of liberation and joy that he himself was able to discover in his studio practice.
Davyd was a friend of our founder, Cynthia’s for many years and when he chose to end his life in 2014, Cynthia wanted to carry his message of love and making the world a more beautiful place by supporting his legacy.
Globally, an estimated 350 million people of all ages suffer from depression. Davyd’s way of dealing with this disease was through the use of art therapy – a practice we teach and believe in fully at ITN.
