"Oh Spirit Almighty! What a fantastic year this has been! I find myself on a solid foundation, which has not been the norm for me in the past. I feel more in touch with my higher self than ever before. I still have my personality flaws, irritating habits and I make tons of mistakes... daily, but I now see it all totally different. Tapping into unconscious behavior habits when I hear a thought that represents a story from the past or a fear for the future. My relationship to water has opened me up to what it is like to quench your thirst. I am more mindful in my mind, more loving in my heart and I have started putting ME to the front of the line. I have softened a few edges and even cut a branch or 2 off. My relationship to me evolved and grew exponentially. This program is priceless! I am learning how to take care of myself....how do you put a price tag on that? Truly fabulous service!!! Big, Big Props!!!"

" The Institute For Holistic Living Holistic Practitioner Certification Program has been a true blessing to be a part of. The information is exciting, informative, and challenging. I certainly learned more in a year then I ever thought would be possible. Though the program I have compiled a concise library of books and information to access easily and find answers. I feel confident in my ability to muscle test my family, friends, and starting slowly, a couple of clients. The classroom was calm and enjoyable and the new Health Center is beautiful. I was always excited to see what new information - my teachers called it "the juicy" - I would be receiving that day. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to know more about how to be a self-healer and be self-advocating on the journey to true health. I am sure that many fine practitioners will be coming out of this program. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this magical educational journey. "

“Jessicca Kumaalla has created a comprehensive program. It is a solid foundation to begin working with clients immediately! What a difference having this training has made in my confidence to share with clients why they are in pain, or why they are constipated, or why they feel bloated and unwell all the time. I gained the skills to ask the right questions, and learn from my clients own responses, by muscle testing for the answers to these questions. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Healing Arts Practitioner, I have worked with clients for 20 years. It was so incredible to be able to explain to my client, a physician, why his medial epicondylitis (inner elbow injury) wasn't healing. He wasn't getting the nutrients (calcium, magnesium, collagen, electrolytes, minerals) his body needed to build and repair the tissues! When I asked him how he was eating, he realized his injury wasn't healing because he was malnourished. What a moment to watch the *lightbulb* light up for him. I was able to advise the physician about what he should begin including in his diet! I love how this program has enabled and empowered me to work with clients in a more well-rounded and holistic way. I have the beginning foundation of training and skills that I need to be able to speak with authority about things that before used to baffle me. This program is great for people who are already into health and wellness, and also for people who are brand new to these ideas and concepts! So glad I took this training and look forward to deepening my understanding and growing into my role as a Holistic Nutritionist and Wellness Coach!! Thank you Jessicca”

“I finished the Food is Medicine Holistic Nutritionist, Holistic Wellness Coach program in December, 2019. It was an eye opening and empowering course for me. I learned so many ways to improve my own health and well-being, even though I consider myself a pretty healthy person already. I have been putting these lessons to practice in my own life, and I know I can also help others with health and well-being issues. There are so many people around me that could benefit from the principles I’ve learned in this course, and I am eager to get to practicing these techniques! Jessicca has created a comprehensive curriculum and delivers it in a pace and format that felt comfortable, even with my busy and hectic life. You come out with such a vast wealth of knowledge, and I am so grateful to have taken this course!"

“I did the Medicine Dual Certification Program with Jessicca, and I am so glad I did. She is a very wise woman who had studied and researched a lot to create this amazing program. I learned a lot and I feel much more confident working with my clients specially in terms of supporting them with their nutrition. I had been working in healing arts for almost 20 years, and this program is bringing more knowledge to my practice. She also provides great books with a lot of great information. I am very grateful for her and her work.”

“I can’t say enough about Jessicca Kumaalla and her fantastic course. As a dentist, I’ve taken over 300 credits. It’s rare to come across an instructor as dedicated to her students as Jessicca. She puts the students needs first and I can tell that I have a resource for life. She compacts a lot of useful information and it’s very apparent that she’s giving resources that she not only uses, but that she has spent years putting together. You won’t find this from any other course.”

"I recently completed the Food Is Medicine Holistic Nutritionist & Holistic Wellness Coaching Certification Program and I am so thankful to have come across such an informative and comprehensive program. I currently own a business as a Reiki Master Teacher and have aspired to provide more treatment opportunities for my clients. Intuitively, nutrition has consistently emerged as a root factor in many of my clients' health needs. I am now confident in discussing and implementing a wellness program to meet their needs. In addition to the foundational 'nourish and detox' when it comes to diet, I am excited to use new protocols such as Akashic Records Clearing, EFT/Tapping, and Chakra/Meridian Balancing. Jessicca was always available to answer any questions I had, even outside our regular meeting times. She was thorough and often provided additional research tools or resources to help explain the topic. As a bonus, students received a copy of her book 'Transform Your Health in 40 Days: A 40-Day Cellular Detox & Metabolic Re-Set Program' packed full of healthy recipes, self care guidelines, and an easy to follow detox program. Jessicca provides an invaluable support system and I am so happy to be apart of her holistic community!”

"Jessica's Holistic Nutritionist and Holistic Wellness Coach program could not have come at a better time. I had been wanting to get a health certification for quite some time, I just didn't know the best way to do it or what program to take. Jessica's program was referred to me by a mutual friend and I am so grateful. The course is so flexible I was able to easily fit it into my life and Jessica provides fantastic support and manuals that make the information easy to follow and reference. Whether you have a practice and want to expand your services to clients or you simply want to know more about health and wellness for yourself and your loved ones, Jessica's program is a great program!"

“For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for health and nutrition. Five years ago I started researching how amazing we are created and how food can be our medicine. As I learned, I wanted to know even more so I could share this information with people I care about. I recently completed Jessicca’s Food is Medicine Holistic Nutritionist & Holistic Wellness Coaching Certification Program. The program is designed so that busy people can easily fit it into their lives. During the course, Jessicca provided guidance and many other resource tools and references to enhance the program. I am excited to share all my knowledge because as I have learned, once we know more we can do more. Jessicca, thank you for being a loving, kind and compassionate mentor and for encouraging me to complete this program.”

“I successfully completed the Food Is Medicine Holistic Nutritionist & Holistic Wellness Coaching Certification Program taught by my best friend and extraordinary teacher, Jessicca Kumaalla. I am excited and so grateful that I decided to jump into school again and take this comprehensive program. I am so thankful to Jessicca for being a supportive and knowledgeable teacher. I am glad to know that I can be part of her generous and loving holistic community and that she’s here to help me grow and succeed with my clients and business. Jessicca is such a caring person and a wonderful teacher. I have known her for 18 years and have watched her expertise grow as she has helped so many people of all ages in their journey to holistic health. I am confident that I have learned from one of the top Holistic teachers available. I trust her and her method of teaching how to heal ourselves. When I was 20, I wanted to help others heal themselves and I have been studying in the healing arts since 2000. This December, I was looking to expand my knowledge and my business to be able to give more to my community. With this new and deeper understanding through Jessicca’s course, I feel I am more well rounded to be able to share and help others heal themselves. I have been successfully using the 40 Day Transformation that Jessicca teaches to help myself and my clients UPGRADE our health. It has been amazing. I now have so many more tools to use, like Muscle Testing, Chakra and Meridian Balancing and the Injury Erase Protocol just to name a few. Overall, I am so excited to be a Board Certified Holistic Coach and Holistic Nutritionist. Also, with this Certification, I will be a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I want to encourage you to jump into Jessicca’s next course if you are looking for holistic healing. The world needs people who want to heal themselves and people who want to bring Holistic Health to this world.”
