Announcing the RWS Diversity Scholarship Program!

We’re offering a diversity scholarship for our August 2021 Level 1 course. Two recipients will receive scholarships that cover half of your Level 1 tuition.

With this scholarship, we aim to help increase diversity in the functional nutrition space.

All winners have been announced for the August 2021 diversity scholarship! Thank you to all who applied. The next scholarship will be offered in early 2022.

How does this program work?

Mastering the Art and Science of Gastrointestinal Healing is a 12-week online certification program for health practitioners and nutrition professionals, offered twice a year in March and in September.

You’ll have a designated instructor who’s there to support you through the entire course. It includes online training modules, live Q&A coaching calls with the co-founders, many case studies to see clinical application of what you learn, and everything you need to implement the methodology into your own practice.

At the end of the 12 weeks, if you pass the exit exam with 80%, you'll become a certified Restorative Wellness Practitioner, Level 1. 

Here's what our alumni have to say:

"I have practiced acupuncture and herbal medicine for 10 years. I have had a teenage client for years who has daily migraines and daily diarrhea. She had previous stool testing from her doctor that revealed "no problems". She is now 4 or 5 weeks into the RWS protocol and feeling great. Thank you so much!"

Meredith S., ACA, MAOM,
RWP-Level 1, 2020 Graduate

"These classes have been absolute game-changers for my practice far beyond my expectations."

Tanya Pennington, FNTP,
2020 Graduate

How to use specific healing diets including GAPS, low-FODMAPS, ketogenic, intermittent fasting, anti-candida and others, and how to customize them for your client’s unique presentation so they actually work.

About Restorative Wellness Solutions

As a nutrition professional, the thing you want most is to be a game-changer for your clients. You want to help them get well, no matter how sick they are. In order to do that, you need a proven process to get outstanding clinical results with every client you see.

The biggest challenge you face is that the toolkit you learned to work with will only take you so far, especially with those complicated client cases. The health issues your clients face are getting more complex, and it can feel totally overwhelming and drain your confidence if you don’t have what you need to get them well.

We believe that you shouldn’t have any barriers for the types of cases you work with or the types of results you can get with those clients, even where others have failed (even those who are “more qualified” than you).

This is why we’re here. We started Restorative Wellness Solutions because we, as practitioners like you, also struggled with many of these issues earlier in our careers, and there was no one there to really guide us. We spend years figuring this out on our own and developed a system that gets consistently outstanding results with every client. 

Since starting our certification program in 2014, we’ve certified 500 practitioners in 44 states and 7 countries. We teach this simple 3-step process:

  1. How to use lab testing effectively in your practice in order to understand what’s driving your client’s health challenges.
  2. How to build customized and targeted protocols that are personalized to your client’s unique needs, informed by objective test data and a strong understanding of the body’s natural order of healing.
  3. How to uplevel your clinical results with every client who walks through your doors.

Join us for this 12-week program, where one of our instructors will help you get what you need…

Don’t continue to struggle with complex client cases and only get mediocre results. You deserve a practice where you’re the game-changer: transforming your clients’ health and lives, recognized as an elite level practitioner amongst your peers, with a waitlist practice filled with referrals from delighted clients, living your purpose and reaping the rewards.
Here's what our graduates have to say...

"Anne and Margaret, I just wanted to thank you both so much for the Restorative Wellness classes. I loved them and I can't wait to take the others! Prior to RWS, I just didn't have a clear picture of what my practice would look like, and I wasn't having enough consistent successes to even feel comfortable making it my full time job. Now I have such a clear image of what my practice and new career will be!  I've already had multiple successes and happy clients now that I've started using these tests and protocols. And then last week my most challenging client, who has fibromyalgia, just let me know that she's feeling so much better and doesn't have any of her fibromyalgia symptoms anymore! This is such an exciting field and I'm just so thankful that your classes are giving me the tools that I was missing! Thank you both!"

-Deborah Elvin, NTP, BCHN, RWP

2017 Graduate 

"I am so grateful for the Restorative Wellness Solutions program! I feel like I now have powerful tools to really help people. And it’s not just the tools and knowledge that are being shared, it’s the instructors: they really care about us and want us to succeed. Their generous nature is so appreciated and this program is changing my life in a huge way!
