NIWH Graduate Spotlight Questionnaire
Angela R Hall, MSN, RN, AHN-BC
Q: What drew you to the Whole Health field and the National Institute of Whole Health?
A: I began a journey several years ago to discover the true causes of illness and disease, the miraculous way in which God created our bodies to work specifically within His Creation, how to prevent our bodies from succumbing to illness and disease, and how to heal our bodies and reverse the damage they have already sustained, naturally. I researched several different programs, but only this program offered by NIWH aligned with my values and my desire for an evidence-based, holistic approach to client care.
Q: Did the Whole Health training meet your professional goals?
A: This program far exceeded my expectations! I learned more in the 9 months of taking this course than I did in my entire master’s degree program. The online classes and provided resources contain a wealth of amazing information, far more than I expected; with the convenience of being able to complete the classes at my own pace.
This program explored health and the human body’s ability to heal in ways I had never heard before. For the first time in my 20+ year nursing career, I finally understand the interconnectedness and interdependency of every single cell, tissue, muscle, organ, and system in the body; and the way the 5 different aspects of health: physical, emotional, spiritual, nutritional, and environmentalTM, all work together to determine where we each fall on the illness/wellness continuum. I have learned how to actually help my clients begin to heal, rather than simply treating their symptoms; and in the process have been able to heal myself! I decided to put what I had learned to the test. By following everything I learned, and the exact same principles that I now teach, I have lowered by cholesterol by over 100 points, increased my HDL, lowered my LDL, and reduced my triglycerides substantially, and I lost 40 pounds in the process… all in less than 6 months! I have learned what I feel is the most important lesson of all, God designed our bodies for health and healing. When we provide our body with what it needs, and remove what it doesn’t, miracles are truly possible!
Q: How are you currently applying your training from NIWH?
A: Since graduating, I have started my own Whole Health Education® and Holistic Nurse Coaching practice and have been offered a position as a Diabetes Educator at a local hospital. I have recently completed my Advanced Holistic Nurse Board Certification and will be taking the Chronic Care Professional Board soon. I am also now eligible to sit for the Health and Wellness Nurse Coach Boards, which I plan to do within the next few months. I am now practicing in a way that aligns with my values and my spiritual beliefs. I am so excited to be on this journey to
health and healing.
Q: Would you recommend the Whole Health training to others?
A: I would highly recommend this program to any nurse who is interested in treating the whole person, body, mind, and spirit, and in learning how to set our bodies up for optimal healing to begin to take place using evidenced-based best practices.
Thank you for providing this wonderful program!
