I decided to look into becoming a certified integrative medicine health coach as I was turning in a manuscript for a book on gut wellness and stress to my publishers. I have been a bodyworker with specialties in visceral and gut health and healing trauma for decades and it was clear that my clients needed more support. Their doctors were not helping them beyond shortened visits and mostly medication prescriptions. Most people it seemed were at a loss as to how to feel better on any level.
As I was searching through the many health coach courses available due to the explosion in the field, I came upon Dr Keesha Ewers fantastic book: Solvlng the Autoimmune Puzzle. I couldn't put it down. It was the first time trauma was really spoken about as a piece of the health puzzle. It was integrative and very clearly and lovingly written. I was thrilled when I realized that Dr. Ewers came from a western medical background and had her PHD in psychology, a masters in Ayurveda and was a functional medicine practitioner. I knew she was my teacher.
I loved the course. Every week was a new adventure. It was challenging and more comprehensive than I had imagined. The online course work was clear and easy to navigate, our live classes were incredibly informative and deeply edifying, and the forum that has been set up on facebook allows the student to stay in touch daily and have questions answered by the tribe, assistants and Dr Keesha. It was an experience I will cherish and it continues to support me as it is ongoing even when you graduate. So much is made available to the student through this program. And the positive approach and constant encouragement cannot be described, it has to be experienced. I completed the course in December of 2017 and it has contributed so many things to my life and work! The psychiatrist I collaborate with followed my progress and has been sending me health coaching clients non-stop. I have been a very busy practitioner throughout my career, but even the clients who have been visiting me over the years want to participate in what I have added to my practice as a result of the training. It is life enhancing for me and I feel my creativity and energy has skyrocketed! I feel more rooted in the knowledge I had prior to the program and have been led to explore at a deeper and more expansive level throughout the course and as I practice. My new book will be published in August, and I now feel confident to a greater extent that I can serve my community in a richer way.
Also as an added benefit, my fees increased and I know I have added great value to my work and what my clients receive. And I am excited when a new client comes to see me and I can be their Sherlock, helping them get to the root cause of the symptoms that have been holding them back from the joy that is their birthright. I raised my rates to $200 a session from $160. My first session is now $250. And I helped 10 new clients in the last two weeks!

"I am very excited to be sending this final exam to you. This is the most interesting study I have ever done and wish I would have taken it 40 years ago!! Actually, couldn't have done it because brain fog prevented a lot of learning ability. Thanks to you and this program I am able to sit at my computer, listen to a seminar and act on it like never before. And it is only getting better!"

"Our country's history and particularly the events of the past year have solidified a certainty that this world is in desperate need of the feminine. Of feminine energy, feminine strength, feminine intelligence and feminine wisdom. For me to remain within the contemporary approach to medicine, even FM, would not free me. I would remain within its very real and limiting dynamics.
I am appreciative for the work you do and the offering of this training. It is what I have been missing all of this time. It explains why I've been so distraught for so long and why I have felt largely ineffective as a healer. But I just didn't know what to do. This uncertainty has now cleared. I am excited about the learning ahead, joining the tribe and all of the very positive possibilities."
