Help Others Reach Their Full Health Potential
Health Professional Training Overview
Our company has been in business for almost 25 years. During that time, we have developed the largest libraries in the world of articles, videos, educational programming, and other decision tools designed to help consumers in making informed choices about health. We propose that consumers should make decisions about health-related issues the same way they make other important decisions such as purchasing cars, houses, and retirement accounts – by gathering information, asking lots of questions, and then deciding what to do based on evidence, finances, and goals.
We’ve impacted hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, teaching them how to understand health information in order to make the best choices for regaining and/or maintaining optimal health. In addition to our informational libraries, we have developed textbooks, videos, slide sets and other tools that assist people in improving their diet and lifestyle habits.
We have also developed training programs for both health professionals and for those who seek training in order to enter the healthcare field.
Our curricula is designed to show you how to develop a successful practice based on our model. We can help you to:
Design a new practice or repurpose an existing practice that focuses on evidence-based decision-makings and diet and lifestyle intervention
Learn how to develop and market your health-related business
Develop research skills
Attract patients/clients who are interested in taking control of their health
Learn specific protocols that address the whole person, and that have been shown to result in better long-term outcomes
Adopt proven methods for motivating and sustaining diet and lifestyle change
Write and deliver effective educational curricula that lead to improved health
Our Programs Are Different
We consider nutrition to be part of an overall health improvement program which utilizes many other strategies, the most important of which is InforMED Decision-Making. About 35% of our new members/clients are eating diets that may be better than most, yet they are not healthy.
There are many reasons, including taking drugs and supplements that are useless or harmful, consenting to screening tests that are harmful, having unnecessary procedures, and having trouble sorting out fact from fiction when making medical choices. Graduates of our programs are more helpful to people because they are trained to address “whole person” health, which includes but is not limited to diet.
Another differentiating factor is that a significant percentage of our training is delivered live through teleconference. We do not believe that people can be taught to be successful through more passive learning methods.
We focus on application/intervention as much as acquisition of knowledge since this is the missing link for most people. We seldom encounter a person who does not understand and agree with the information they learn from us. But most of them struggle to apply what they learn – and that’s the piece that matters most.
Last but not least, we are teaching people to do what we have been doing for almost 25 years – delivering services in community settings. The actual development and conducting of a business and helping people with complicated health issues is quite different than purely academic discussions about health.
Benefits of Affiliation
The Wellness Forum Health Affiliate Program is designed for anyone who is in a health-related field. We invite doctors, nurses, dietitians, nutritionists, physical therapists, athletic trainers, mental health professionals, yoga teachers, and anyone else who is engaged in offering health-related advice to join.
The purpose of affiliation is twofold; to provide you with structured programming and products to offer to your clients/patients, and to generate additional income for your practice or business. Building a health-related business can be challenging, in part because there are so many things to do. One very important task is to create and administer educational programming that teaches people how to take more control over their health. Using our programs and products to support your practice saves you from having to create your own, and allows you to focus on spending quality time with the people you want to help. An added bonus is that affiliation with us allows you to generate more revenue.
