Healing Diets Teachers evolve naturally out of School of Natural Medicine Colorado State Board of Higher Education Healing Diets Diploma Training. Advanced students are offered opportunities to assist in classes and then a certain few evolve as teachers on their own, or with the school. Becoming a Healing Diets Coach means that a student wants to share the good news and help others to transform their relationship with food to enjoy a healthy life with respect for animals and our planet, and to assist in the healing of health concerns, aging and chronic disease.
BETH DORSEY is one of our passionate teachers, who took Healing Diets information and skills into her home where she and her husband are raising three adopted children. Although at the beginning the youngsters were resistant, it seems they all want to share the food she makes and wait in line for it, asking her what she is making next, as all the cultured, dehydrated and fresh vegan foods Beth is dedicated to are absolutely delicious. Beth teaches the third day of Healing Diets II, offering laughter filled fun creations of cultured foods, seed and nut cheeses and yoghurts, dehydrated crackers and unusual and tasty cleanse drinks. Beth is also a Certified Life Coach, Hypnotherapist, and a Reflexologist, Healing Diets & Essential Oils graduate from the School of Natural Medicine.
“It all begins with a thought…” I work with people that want to transform their personal or professional life by identifying and changing their thought patterns, overcoming blocks, and reprogramming belief systems to create the life they desire. I use life coaching, hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to assist clients in achieving their dreams. Very powerful tools for very powerful results. I also see clients that are suffering from chronic conditions, including addictions, and need to heal their body and their mind. The body is a whiteboard that the mind writes on. If you have been thinking negative thoughts and feelings the effects of those thoughts, it WILL manifest into disease. I incorporate Essential Oils, Reflexology, Meditation, Spirituality and Healing Diets into my practice. If we can work on supporting the body and nurturing the soul while we work on changing the thought patterns, we get positive results very quickly. ” Beth Dorsey, Longmont, Colorado.
JESSICA FANNING-GREMLEY took off with Healing Diets training to complement her Natural Acne Clinic aesthetician practice in Golden, Colorado – beauty from the inside out! Very soon after attending classes, with years of professional confidence, Jessica began teaching her own Healing Diets classes in Denver and c0-hosted a Women’s Wellness Weekend with another student. It was a joy to co-create her day of teaching which focused on family foods, from pre-conception, pregnancy, post birth, infancy, children and teenagers. Creating healthy family foods is a challenge for many mothers and our students reported it was a fantastic day, the last day of the August Healing Diets Immersion.
