NIWH Graduate Spotlight Questionnaire
BA, RN, MS, CHC, WHE, FNLP
Q: What drew you to the Whole Health field and the National Institute of Whole Health?
A:I had been in successful private practice for over five years when I learned about NIWH. I was looking to broaden my knowledge base and be able offer exciting new information to my clients. I made the decision to enroll in the NIWH Whole Health Educator program because I felt this may be the missing piece that many of my clients were searching for. So often people think that their health issues are related to just ONE thing, when in fact it is more likely a perfect storm of issues.
Poor quality diet, lack of sleep, uncontrolled stress and inactivity are some of the many culprits that impact health. NIWH’s 5 Aspects of Whole Health™; the physical, emotional, nutritional, environmental, and spiritual, addressed many of these issues and they made sense to me. “Everything IS connected”. This was information I felt compelled to share with the clients I serve.
Q: Did the Whole Health training meet your professional goals?
A: YES! Whole Health training met not only my professional goals, but my personal curiosity. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and it was not until after I completed this program that I was able to connect the dots as to “how this diagnosis could happen to me”. My NIWH experience is ingrained deeply into my current practice at www.JacquiBryan.com.
It is my opinion that a practice that encompasses the 5 Aspects of Whole Health™, “leaves no stone” unturned. These practitioners have a clear picture of what their client’s world is like. Armed with this valuable information Whole Health Educators can adapt their programs to be a good fit for their clients’ lives. This feels good for the client and the practitioner. A win-win.
Q: How are you currently applying your training from NIWH?
A: I use the 5 Aspects of Whole Health with one-on-one clients and in group settings. It is a part of my daily professional and personal life. It feels great!
Q: Would you recommend the Whole Health training to others?
A: Yes, without hesitation!
