The Integrative Women's Health Institute has worked with thousands of clients throughout the world to help them resolve period, pelvic, and sexual pain, optimize their health to prepare for pregnancy, recover postpartum, balance their hormones, improve their sports performance, recover from over training, and optimize their heart, hormone, and brain health in perimenopause and beyond.
Often we focus on where we need to go instead of celebrating the success along the way. It feels so good to have the support and great knowledge that Jessica has to share. It really goes a long way. 6 months ago I was 30 pounds heavier, had thyroid problems, metabolism slow as you can imagine, felt stressed almost 100% of the time and felt sluggish along with that. No energy and I was an angry mom most of the time! And sex was a no-no, no way, no thank you, hurts too much! Fast forward to today and I am a true believer in “ask and it is given”.
I asked for help and direction and Jessica showed up! My life has almost completely changed. I feel healed from the inside out, 30 lbs lighter, mentally lighter, up for sex again and actually feeling vibrant! I feel very grateful and really know now anything is possible.
We can heal our lives and our bodies.
I just want to thank you, Jessica, for doing what you do and for being a light for us sharing your experience and wisdom and making a difference in the world! Big love!!
I cannot say enough good things about IWHI’s Women’s Health and Nutrition Coach program. It is thorough, informative, evidence-based, practical, and changes the paradigm of caring for women with pelvic pain.
As a board certified obstetrician and gynecologist who has been dissatisfied with the standard of care for pelvic pain and spent thousands of dollars attending numerous conferences on pelvic pain, pain processing, holistic and integrative medicine, I wish I had started with this program first. I would have saved money and been very well prepared to treat this patient population in a more and evidence-based way.
For any medical doctors who may be hesitant, delay no longer; you will be more than satisfied! This course will change your practice and the way you view not only your pelvic pain patients but all of your patients.
Going gluten and sugar free and cutting way down on caffeine has had the effect of reducing about 50% of my chronic pain.
Another positive result, and I have to say this took me totally by surprise, is that after 10 months, my IUD has stopped trying to murder me from the inside, or at least that’s what it was feeling like!
I was suffering through stabbing pain for months and taking huge amounts of ibuprofen (up to 2400 mg/day) for weeks up to and through my period. If you have the misfortune to be totally incompatible with all forms of hormonal birth control, you can understand why I was at my wit’s end.
This month I’ve only taken 400 mg TOTAL of ibuprofen and finally feeling hopeful that my birth control and I can be friends. My cycle is getting more regular, too! This is so encouraging after months of pain and years of irregular cycles.
Jessica is so wise. IWHI is a sanctuary for women who have felt totally dismissed or unsupported by the conventional “women’s health” medicine and programs out there. Sometimes it’s serious conversations and sometimes it feels like a glass of wine with my girlfriends. No matter what, the information and support is top notch and one of a kind.
I have been a successful clinician in private practice for a long time, but stepping into training other clinicians to work with complex medical cases was challenging to say the least. It is also too easy to fall into analysis paralysis and get in your own way no matter how experienced of a business owner you already are! Jessica’s support helped me get over myself and just go and do it – launch my EBV Clinician Training Program that I am now absolutely loving!!! Thank you Jessica!!! And I know I had to listen because while we are colleague nutritionists and both successful business owners, I often look up to her for her amazing business expertise and savvy and practical approach. Her guidance has been priceless and always so appreciated. I can promise you that any business coaching Jessica puts together will be phenomenal and absolutely worth every penny!
There simply aren’t enough words to say how wonderful the Integrative Women’s Health Institute is. Taking part in their programs has forever changed the way I work with my clients!
I have taken three courses with the Integrative Women’s Health Institute and each time I am impressed with the amount of content, data and practical skills I come away with that I an integrate into my practice straight away. Not only have I developed my coaching skills beyond what I thought was possible, it has had a profound effect on my clients, letting them take the lead in many cases where they have previously felt hopeless.
The amount of evidence for nutritional strategies and the systematic approach has truly revolutionised my practice and helped me to make skilled recommendations to my clients where required.
If you work with women, I cannot recommend this course highly enough.
The WHC Certification Program is rocking my world. I have done a lot of training programs in the last five years and this is hands down the best one I’ve ever participated in.
In this relatively new field of work in which the research and facts are sometimes scarce, having access to this course that is so well-researched is so encouraging. Jessica has covered every aspect of women’s hormonal health and backed it all up with thorough evidence-based research. It’s all very compelling!
Each session has been interactive and engaging. Jessica is a masterful teacher and her passion for this work really shines through every step of the way. She has left no stone unturned and covers each topic comprehensively. There is so much material that I find myself going back through each of the webinars at least 2 or 3 times. Additionally, I’ve implemented a lot of what I’ve learned into my own practice and I’m seeing phenomenal results with my clients.
If you are a coach or physical therapist and want to learn the best evidence-based practices to help your female clients, this is the course to take!
Jessica Drummond is one of the most amazing women and mentors I’ve had the pleasure to meet (virtually). IWHI provides all the answers I have been searching for – an integrative approach to women’s health care, combining nutrition, lifestyle and premier coaching for ultimate health.
I stumbled across IWHI in 2014 when I was trying to find help for the many personal issues I was facing. My health was at it’s lowest, I’d just had my first Endometriosis laparoscopy, and was still experiencing many symptoms particularly digestively and hormonally.
I am blessed to be one of the first students to enrol for the Women’s Health Coaching program. And the program literally changed my life, transforming my own health and the health of my complex clients beyond bounds.
Since then I have become addicted to IWHI programs, enrolling for Female Athlete in 2015, the upgraded WHC in 2016, which just kicked off this month, and I can’t wait to sign up for the Preconception course later this year. I have found immense value in all of the courses, both for myself personally and professionally, and for my clients.
Going through the WHC program has also inspired me to start up my own online education and coaching business – The Pelvic Expert. I’m so grateful to have the support of amazing therapists, coaches and healers like Jessica. Thank you Jessica for being an amazing inspiration!
I truly believe that Jessica Drummond is a visionary and without doubt the most thorough educator I have ever had the pleasure to study with!
My overall impression of the Hormones 101 course was extremely positive. The clarity and depth of content delivered is first class. The facilitation style of Dr. Jessica Drummond is superb. She took complex topics and made them manageable.
This course will certainly support my practice, and I urge anyone looking to specialize in women’s health to consider the Integrative Women’s Institute. The content will help you take your practice to the next level.
I wasn’t sure what to expect! I really signed up for the Hormones 101 course because I feel that any knowledge from the IWHI is valuable! It was the first course i signed up to with Jessica Drummond, and I have now enrolled in further studies. It was that good!
Hormones 101 was short, but very detailed and really made me understand the affects of stress on the hormone system. I find the Facebook group very valuable also. Seeing other therapists asking questions is enabling me to learn also. I’m looking forward to my next stage of learning, so that I can offer even more support and education to my female clients.
I really loved the WHC program! So much so that I signed up for more courses with IWHI. I’ve taken other health coaching programs but have learned a lot of new material going through the WHC. The program is taught in a way that makes sense, step by step. Each module is very informative and I really loved plugging through one by one. Starting a new module felt like opening up a present. Also, with some online learning that I’ve experienced it seemed as the teacher is reading straight from notes and I had a hard time focusing. Jessica isn’t like that. I felt like she was speaking directly to me. It kept me engaged and interested. Jessica is very personable, knowledgeable and really cares about teaching health coaching. It is so obvious that she is extremely committed and caring! The support I received during the program was wonderful and made me feel almost like “family”.
I definitely feel ready now!
The Hormones 101 program was amazing! As a pelvic floor physical therapist, it provided me with an entirely new thought process, which I know will highly benefit my patients with chronic pelvic pain. I was always aware that hormones could be playing a role in one’s symptoms, however, this course has given me a much deeper understanding of the ways in which they could be involved, as well as, an understanding of how the various hormones are interconnected. Jessica does a great job thoroughly explaining the various hormone systems and explaining how if one system is off, the impact it can have on the others. I now feel so much more comfortable explaining this to my patients and believe my new knowledge will help lead me to the root cause for some of my patient’s symptoms.
I have done several programs with IWHI and 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.
The Endometriosis MasterClass was an excellent program and a valuable addition to my knowledge and client care skills. The program is very comprehensive, practical and I highly recommend it.
As a pediatric physical therapist and mother to very athletic children, I was happy to see this great program that helps educate on this important topic of athlete wellness and bring light to a variety of topics and issues impacting our children, especially with the rise of early specialization in sports and competitive year long traveling leagues. The information was also valuable to me as a mother and athlete myself to learn ways to support my hormones throughout my life. Thanks Jessica and Julie for developing this program! I enjoyed learning visualization strategies like the bell to help when working with kids and I would love to learn more. I also liked having the quizzes after each module.
I thought the course was fantastic and the knowledge gained will be immensely helpful in building my practice. I enjoyed the course in its entirety but purchased it mainly to expand my knowledge of Thyroid health and optimizing it in women. While I enjoyed that module and learned a great deal, the third module on sex hormones was my favorite. As a mother and hormone coach, I found it informative, thought-provoking, and I will use this information in everyday life as well as my practice. Thank you for providing such an immensely educational and interesting course. I loved it and feel like I learned an incredible amount. – Vashti Kanahele / Hormone & Environmental Toxins Coach
“The information in this course has proven to be essential in my practice treating women with pelvic pain. After each module, I was excited to share what I learned with my coworkers, as well as implement new strategies for managing endometriosis. Overall, I feel more prepared to educate and treat patients and provide quality care that is supplemented with nutritional information. The sheer amount of information was fantastic. I also loved the numerous resources provided, and I always look forward to utilizing Jessica’s expertise with patients. I am constantly blown away by her knowledge base. In short, the course was absolutely wonderful! Thank you!”
“The Functional Nutrition for Rehabilitation Professionals had a good balance of surface material with clinical application. It didn’t feel like getting lost in the deep biochemistry.
I liked that I was able to move through the program at my own pace and I would definitely recommend this program to my friends and colleagues.”
This course was fantastic! I love the new skills I have learned and had no idea that coaching was so helpful in every aspect of my life. It has made me be more mindful in conversations and helped me to be more aware of my own current situation. I feel that the course has helped my health in a positive way and I hope to continue to have this support. I really liked the content and I feel much more empowered to work with women.
The Women’s Health Coaching Certificate program is a top-notch program that really helps the practitioner take their knowledge and skill to the next level. I personally have been able to provide better care to the women I work with. I have also greatly benefited from applying the coaching and lifestyle management strategies to myself. I also look closer at how I am feeling and have developed better stress responses, and nutritional plans.
Thank you so much Jessica for pursuing your passion to help women. It will have an amazingly positive ripple affect now and many years to come for me in my practice, my life, and the life of my family. I also appreciate the support staff and the quick response to questions. Overall this program is amazing.”
I liked the Optimal Fertility Program very much. After finishing the Women’s Health Coaching Certification Program I was happy to continue to learn but also happy that it was a shorter course. I learned a lot of great information that I’ll be sure to pass on to my clients! I liked the addition of Lara’s information and as always, Jessica’s wisdom and guidance.”
The course has been instrumental in helping me develop my skills as a coach! I appreciated the depth of resources and information provided in the course. I loved how devoted it was to the health and wellness needs of WOMEN and have already highly recommended it to others!”
I learned a lot from this course. The research and information is exactly what I needed in order to help my clients more effectively. I enjoyed the organization of the modules and thought that overall it was a positive experience. The information provided in the course has already helped me when working with my current clients.
