It changed my perspective

by Sandra Bullard
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.

Amazing Workshop!

by Melissa Hart
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 beatcancer.org 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
