Rockwell School of Holistic Medicine Handwritten Testimonial
After a lengthy personal and professional transition, I found myself lacking long-term direction. I called on a few close friends to see what the people who knew me best could see me doing professionally. All but one of those people suggested something within the field I was actively trying to leave. That one friend suggested natural health.
She reminded me that I was already doing this in my own life and helping my own family and friends so why not get my education and become a professional. I started looking for a program I could get through, get certified and get to work!
In my search, I found there are A LOT of programs designed just that way, designed to get you certified in something in just a few months. Then I found Rockwell. I picked apart all the modules within all the programs offered.
I compared them to all the other schools I had researched so far. That was when I realized how very little I knew and how much I still had to learn. I knew then, a certification in just a few months was not going to cut it and was not going to lead to a respectable job in this field. I also had no idea which fascit of natural health I wanted to focus on.
I have a job and a family so I needed an educational path that was not only flexible and affordable but also covered all areas of the natural health industry. Rockwell checked all the boxes for me. They really do have it all.
My personal approach to natural health is scientific. I have an appreciation for anecdotal remedies, but in the age of information and technology, we have the ability to uncover and understand the science behind how and why these anecdotal remedies work. I found that the programs offered at Rockwell provide the scientific evidence I was looking for. This gave me greater confidence in the programs and in my ability to practice post certification.
Learning something new or expanding on your current knowledge should be challenging. There are no courses offered by Rockwell that are easy or fast.
They are a challenge indeed! I have not found another program more in depth and comprehensive than the Rockwell programs. After enrolling in the all inclusive Rockwell program, the Tri-Doctorate, I began studying anatomy and physiology in module one. This area of study is paramount in the field of natural health as a whole. Ultimately, I decided to begin this journey with holistic nutrition.
What I learned first is that I have so much more to learn and what I learned next is that my education in this field will never come to an end. Rockwell updates and expands the curriculum regularly so, even after you have finished your program and have become certified, there will always be more to learn and more to add to your scope of knowledge and practice, and you will find it ALL at Rockwell!
I can’t convey how much I’m enjoying this learning journey! I suppose that as a career educator I love to learn, but to have the opportunity to engage with information that is helpful, practical, applicable, as well as backed by a sturdy knowledge base, is just awesome.
Perhaps it’s because I was a philosophy major as an undergraduate so many years ago, but this for me, right now, at this time in my life–is just the best. I learn so much from every lesson–about myself, about the world, about life–and I’m grateful for the new perspective that every lesson brings.
I just can’t express how much I’m enjoying all of this… there is a saying that “the most recent convert makes the worst fanatic,” but I am middle-aged (well, maybe a “mature” middle aged!) and have been walking around until now completely oblivious to so much about our world… thank you for bringing this to light for me!
