Carol Gardner is Using Her Nutrition Knowledge to Bring Health and Awareness

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 7/25/19 3:00 PM

In 2013, Carol Gardner was in hospice care from a lifelong battle with lupus and a twenty year battle with a rare form of Multiple Sclerosis. It was a fight she was determined to win, and says: “I researched nutrition on my own and created a meal plan that reversed the damage caused by both illnesses.”

Two years later, she decided to enroll in SWIHA’s Holistic Nutrition Wellness Practitioner diploma program to learn more about nutrition for herself. Carol tells us: “Dee McCaffrey's course convinced me that I could help others with this newfound knowledge.” Carol says that the greatest lessons she learned in her program were how to write articles, how to speak with clients, and the vast amount of nutrition information she gained.

“I guess you could say I've lived many lives before I found SWIHA,” says Serena Gosling, an Integrative Healing Arts Practitioner student who’s graduating this month,  “Spirituality always interested me, but I only scratched the surface.”

Serena explains that she spent much of her teens and early twenties using drugs as an escape. “I was still really lost, until about two and a half years ago,” she tells us, “I had a massive awakening and realized I wanted to help others heal. A few months later I found Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.”

Charlotte MacDonald Connects To The Divine Through Written Word

Posted by Taylor Jablonowski on 7/1/19 3:00 PM

Charlotte MacDonald describes her life before SWIHA as a pile of scattered puzzle pieces which she struggled to fit together.

“Being a queer teen and a missionary forced me to reconcile with my spirituality. As I allowed it to evolve and grow, I sought out a career path that would allow me to feel fulfilled as I left my evangelical roots behind,” says Charlotte.

She went on to discover the Spiritual Studies certificate offered at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts and decided to pursue the Mind-Body Wellness Practitioner program. She tells us: “When I got here, I discovered so much more than I bargained for and began sorting through my story and opening to my healing process.”

She tells us: “Five years ago, I believe I hit my rock bottom due to divorce, selling my home short sale, and relocating for a job…yeah, many major life changes. That in itself took major adjustment, reflection, and ‘doing the work’,” Christine continues, “SWIHA took a better version of me and provided the tools I needed to create a business with awesome modalities, but more importantly discovering even more of myself, my purpose and enjoying the journey along the way!”

“When I woke back up from not being responsive, I didn’t know who I was, where I was, or what I had been doing for the past few years. I felt a sudden switch in my mind, body and soul,” he explains.
