176+ Million People Worldwide Have Endometriosis 

Endometriosis is a chronic, inflammatory disease that affects over 10% of all people globally. Endometriosis is a complex disease that requires multi-modal treatment and management for the affected person's entire life. 

Endometriosis is a progressive disease, meaning it often gets worse over time. There is NO CURE for endometriosis at this time, which is why it is so crucial that more practitioners educate themselves deeply about this disease, because regardless of your niche, there's a good chance you see clients who have endometriosis at some point.

Traditional Healthcare Alone is Not Enough

Millions of people across the globe need the care and support of a board-certified health coach to guide them through the complexities of modern medical systems, educate them about integrative nutrition and lifestyle medicine, and provide a trauma-informed approach to managing any health concern.  

Many healthcare and wellness providers find themselves hitting a wall with their clients, especially when someone is dealing with endometriosis and all of the complexities and co-morbidities associated with it. You may feel like you've tried everything in your power to help your endometriosis and pelvic pain clients, but you're still not seeing results no matter what you recommend. 

Guess what! If you're nodding along, you're not alone, this is not your fault. Many practitioners only receive a few hours of high-level training on endometriosis, which is part of why this condition remains so deeply misunderstood. But good news, The Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Certificate Program was designed to help fill the gaps in your education and provide you with the knowledge and skills to reach and exceed your goals with your endo and pelvic pain clients.

Graduate Testimonials 

"The Endometriosis MasterClass was very informative and deep into the genetics, chemistry, medical management and nutritional aspects, as I would expect from Jessica’s teaching – she is a master of these things! The details of the course, the evidence that helped to dispel some myths around endometriosis, length was good, info very up-to-date. I feel more confident in addressing my patients with endometriosis after learning from this course, and I feel more empowered to help them navigate their options for management."

"I feel the Endometriosis Coach Accelerator course layout and information provided was good. I could not attend the live calls due to my schedule, but was happy to have the ability to watch the replays. I always enjoy learning the most up to date information to share with my patients. The Endometriosis Coach Accelerator program will allow me to connect with local practitioners, will expand my practice, and will help women learn and live a life with less pain and more options!"

"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."

"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."

"I wish I had started with this program first."

“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 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.”
