WELCOME! You are about to discover a truly unique, life changing educational experience. Let us inspire you to boldly step forward and follow your dreams, moving ever closer to your authentic self. We see you as an entrepreneur and innovator that will reshape the future of health and healing. Each and every one of you widens the circle when you educate your communities. Shifts in consciousness take place and the world becomes a better place for everyone.

WHAT IS A HEALTH COACH? A Health Coach is a health and wellness authority and supportive mentor. As a Health Coach you will guide your clients toward health and wellness goals through diet and lifestyle change. You will help your clients learn to develop a deeper understanding of the choices that work best for them.

WHAT MAKES OUR SCHOOL THE ULTIMATE LEARNING EXPERIENCE? It's our integrative hands on Raw and Vegan Plant Based Food training that goes with your Coaching curriculum. Offering your clients and students transformation with sticking power means introducing the healthy food choices that help them detox, lose stubborn weight and prevent or reverse disease symptoms to keep them healthy for years to come.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRAIN WITH US? Health Coaching is a great stand alone business or can be added to an already established business to create multiple streams of income. It can be used in a one-on-one coach-client format, in group workshops and demos or to create and operate your own health center. We provide support and guidance for your vision. Our three month curriculum offers three training modules that will give you all the skills you need to effectively design your own business with success and confidence.


PILLAR ONE: Home Study-All The Nutritional Knowledge That Matters

Two weeks before class begins you will receive your DFL Program Workbook to begin study for class lecture. This in depth workbook covers the science and nutrition of how Raw And Vegan Plant-Based Food works to heal. Topics include:

  • Why living plant based foods are more powerful than cooked foods for fighting disease.
  • The benefits of wheatgrass juice in the detoxification process.
  • Why we begin with cleansing and detoxing first.
  • The science of why the foods work at the DNA level.
  • The powerful role a healthy elimination system plays in healing.
  • How to create an inner terrain that is inhospitable to disease.
  • How detoxing can repair the body as a wholism and allow clients to reclaim their health.
  • The importance of using a full spectrum of nutrients for repair and renewal.

PILLAR TWO: 4 Day Hands On Immersion At Diet For Living School

This component of the program sets us apart from other coaching programs. We want you to be the best trained Health Coach in your field. We find intensive classroom time to be a more efficient form of learning because there is no substitute for:

  • Intimate student participation
  • Hands-on learning
  • Answering questions in real time
  • Flexibility to address individual needs
  • Encouragement and support

The day is divided up into two modules

Mornings: Transformational Coaching Skills, subjects covered:

  • How to conduct one-on-one interviews with confidence.
  • The all important questions to ask to understand your client's patterns with food.
  • How to create a plan that helps your client make needed change.
  • The skills and tools to bring your client through a Detox Cleanse using fresh pressed juices and nutrient dense Raw and Vegan Plant-based foods.
  • How to create 'Coaching Packages' that add more value to your clients experience and provide more income for you.
  • How to build a sustainable business in todays economy.
  • The benefits of becoming an affiliate.
  • How to conduct demos and workshops.
  • How to charge what you are worth so that you can build a life that works.

During class time you will be given training hand-outs, check lists and scripts as well as guidance as to how to package all you learned into a thriving business.

Afternoons: Making Detox plant-based foods in the DFL Green Healing Kitchen

Most Health Coach Programs focus on teaching dietary theory and how to give that information to your client in an office setting. While that can be part of the process, we believe offering your clients transformation with sticking power means introducing them to food choices that help them detox, lose stubborn weight, and prevent/reverse disease symptoms to keep them healthy for years to come. Here you will learn hands-on how to make Raw and Vegan plant-based foods in our schools Green Healing Kitchen and greenhouse. You will be provided with:

  • Only the highest quality organic raw-living plant-based foods to prepare the recipes.
  • Hands-on instruction in making foods that cleanse, repair and restore the body.
  • Prepping instructions and step-by-step instructor guidance through every recipe.
  • A copy of the foods in a 'structured cleanse format' so you can organize a detox cleanse for clients.

Because learning should always be fun....we eat all the food we make together. We laugh, we share, as well as celebrate with a group dinner at the end of the fourth day.

PILLAR THREE: Master Coaching Skills/Home Study

An expert is someone who continues to study and learn. After spending a life changing four days with us, you will then return home to continue learning based on everything we covered in class. We provide you with two more months of web-based learning to grow your confidence and build your dream business with our support.

The assignments for this part of the program are designed with your busy schedule in mind. Downloadable worksheets and organized assignments will be e-mailed out on Tuesdays to keep you on track, honing your skills. What you get:

  • Continued guidance while you build your coaching skills.
  • Support creating a specific plan to work with your niche market.
  • Help building a successful online presence.
  • The secrets to building a business blog that supports and sells you.
  • Techniques to use Business Facebook to get and to keep loyal followers.
  • Tools for making strategic alliances in your community.

"Let Food Be Thy Medicine and Medicine Be Thy Food."  Hippocrates

Detoxing with Raw and Living Foods to restore order in the body and heal degerative disease was first taught by the great healer Dr Ann Wigmore. Her pioneering discoveries are used in six of the major cleansing centers across the United States for detoxification of the body to affect health and longitivity. These foods prepared in nutrient dense combinations cured Dr Ann's cancer as well as my own. Our Program focuses on the preparation of these healthy organic gluten-free Raw cleansing foods as well as the role diet and lifestyle play in the wellness process. Our training provides hands on food preparation so that you will feel confident teaching others. 

We also include the science behind why these lifesaving innovative foods work. Topics include: Raw Food Dietary Therapy; The Science of Enzymes; Diet Principles of a Simple Detox Diet; Raw Foods as a WeightLoss Tool; Importance of Phytonutrients and Acid/Alkaline Foods; Wheat Grass Therapy; and creating a Living Foods Kitchen.
