This program is for YOU!

“I feel more confident in my ability to treat the complex pelvic pain or bowel patients after taking the course because I have the education to back up what I am telling my patients about nutrition." -- Lisa Lennon, Physical Therapist, Functional Nutrition for Chronic Pelvic Pain Graduate
"I am a health & wellness coach with endometriosis; probably the most complex case I have worked on. In 2012 I was in pain almost daily.
I don’t know how to express in words what I feel about this program. It has made me better personally and professionally; and in less than 3 months I got back in improved health more than what I paid for a full year certification.
It feels so extremely empowering, not only on a personal level, but also on an emotional and professional level, to know I have the right tools to help and heal. In my personal and professional opinion, this course is the best one there is out there." -- Audrey Sourroubille, Women's Health Coach Certification Graduate

I am so grateful to Jessica Drummond and the Support Staff at IWHI for offering services and resources in an accessible online platform without compromising the standard of professional continuing education. The content for the courses blend current, evidence based research with clinical expertise to foster the clinical reasoning skills necessary for direct application.
As a Women’s Health and Pelvic Physical Therapist, we have an obligation to look through a holistic lens for more efficient, effective and sustainable client solutions. Being knowledgeable on basic nutritional principles within the scope of our practice is a great example of topics Jessica is expertly sharing with us. Jessica’s presentation style is engaging with nice graphics and diagrams to reference. Between my learning style and “full plate”, I would not be able to travel nor mentally process the intense level of content presented in multi day, live courses.
The IWHI Community has the benefits of real time dialogue opportunities, good reference material for reviewing and an active social media group. I look forward to an ongoing learning experience through IWHI.
-- Dr. Lori O’Neill, PT, DPT
