How to Become a Wellness Coach and Nutrition and Herbal Professional with Lori Rose PhD :063

Becoming a Wellness Coach, Nutrition Professional and Herbalist are now easier and more affordable than ever!

Lori Rose, PhD teaches a coarse at Hill College that offers training for credentials in all three of these professions and in this interview we get to learn about her and how her own struggle with weight loss and health got her onto this path.

  • Are you interested in natural health and healing?
  • Do you want to learn more and help others?
  • Would an online program and affordable tuition (including financial aid) be ideal?

 

Here are the highlights of our talk:

  • How positive thinking changed her life
  • Learning that counting calories and measuring food (including carrying measuring cups in her purse) is not the way or a healthy way to lose weight.
  • Her experience and thoughts with being vegetarian and vegan
  • “I was not living life… may weight may have been going down, but I was not living live. I was all by myself, isolated, completely focused on food.” – Lori Rose, PhD
  • Some resources that helped Lori to make a big mental shift: Marianne Williamson, Eckart Tolle, Neale Donald Walsch
  • How her intention to get a full refund in 30 days for book that promised to change the reader’s life actually challenged her to follow the instructions full and she got amazing results! (and did not request a refund)
  • Gardening and companion planting.
  • Lori’s unique program offering through Hill College to earn credentials as: Holistic Nutritionist, Wellness Coach, Herbalist or/and Associate of Science degree
  • What is the difference between being a Holistic Nutritionist, Wellness Coach and General or Clinical Herbalist?
  • What is the difference between a General and Clinical Herbalist?
  • What can a person do with this education? What kind of setting would this person work in?
  • “Plants have their own unique qualities, their own energetics and so do people – and so it’s not just that someone with this diagnosis can take this herb. You have to figure out what are all the components of this person and what are all the components of these herbs and which one is the best one for that client. And you really can’t that deep into it without pursuing herbalism itself.” – Lori Rose, PhD
  • Contraindications – herb/drug and herb/person interactions
  • How long does it take to complete this program? – It’s designed to cover 4 semesters. It’s two fall and spring sessions. This aligns with an associate degree program.
  • What’s the difference being a Naturopath and a Wellness Coach, Holistic Nutritionist or Herbalist?
  • “My dream is that my students will get these credentials and then they will go on to become D.O’s (doctor of osteopathy), M.D.’s, N.D.’s, psychologist, psychiatrist, nurses, massage therapists and anything in the health field – and then we will all have this holistic background… we will just add holistic healing to the world.” – Lori Rose, PhD
  • Will exercise education be included in this program?
  • “I think a very important part of this field is to avoid the competitive nature that is in a lot of other fields… with scarcity mentality… You’re not competitors, you’re partners.” – Lori Rose, PhD

About Matthew Wood

“A Real Live Herbalist” 

Matthew Wood has been a practicing herbalist since 1982. In a period when many authors and lecturers are merely “arm chair herbalists” who offer theories and opinions based on book learning, and others have turned to the exotic traditions of India or China, he has been an active practitioner of traditional Western herbalism. He has helped tens of thousands of clients over the years, with many difficult health problems. While Matthew believes in the virtue of many other healing modalities, he has always been inspired to learn, preserve, and practice the tradition of herbal medicine descending to us from our European, Anglo-American, and Native American heritage. He is a member of the American Herbalists Guild (registered herbalist) and has earned his Masters of Science degree from the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine (accredited by the University of Wales).
