"Is an excellent course , I learn a lot to help others, and to teach them how we can fight together, regarding what we going to expect of the whole processes in the battle of Cancer , and learn that is the host not the tumor , the interviews , the DVD, an the explanation in a simple way by Dr.Silberstein, is was excellent . I going to teach my Hispanic community that some time they do not have the tools in Spanish to pass thru all of this Cancer process, also for them to taken better decisions in their treatment orthodox, alternative or both.

"As a holistic practitioner, I was getting clients with cancer and some that were recovered and trying to prevent any recur. Not having had cancer myself, I felt I had inadequate knowledge to answer their questions, guide and support their personal journey. By taking this course I was able to feel confident that I had the knowledge, the tools and the support that I needed to provide quality recommendations and could get answers to their questions or refer them to Dr. Silberstein for consultation. I used to think that I needed to get my patients to treat their cancer with natural methods. This course changed that perspective and helped me to see clearly that each person has their own path to follow. My job is just to support them in the ways that are taught so well in this program."~ Sandra Bullard

"I am a holistic health practitioner, clinical hypnotherapist and functional nutritionist. I lost three family members to cancer during my life and have always had a passion for learning more and getting at root causes and the linkages to the mind-body wellness equation. The material presented in this certification course truly impressed me and validated much of what I learned in my studies to date. I only wish that I had known about these resources and 35 years ago. This is a very comprehensive, up-to-date program and I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a ton! Thank you for all that you do ---and may God bless you all for your continued time, dedication and commitment to this cause. Melissa L. Hart Chandler, Arizona"~ Melissa Hart

"I am so honored to have found this certification. I can't begin to describe in words how this program resonates with me. The theories and what is presented here resonate deeply with my core beliefs. I'm deeply grateful to have additional guidance in becoming a coach to some of these struggling patients. I've believed for a long time that cancer is a 'whole body' disease and therefore healing can only happen [when] the 'whole body becomes whole.' I believe this so deeply that I can't detour from it, [although] the medical community at large does not embrace this. I will be humbled and honored to be a beacon in the darkness to some of these folks. My personal experience with four family members left me angry and floundering for answers. I've also known for a long time that helping, assisting and doing something with cancer patients is my 'calling.' I just didn't know where to start. Now I do. Thank you very much."~ Zandi Audiss, RN
