About This Program

Dr. Wahls' inspiring story and groundbreaking research has already changed the way millions of people think about autoimmune disease, intensive nutrition—and kale. Over the last several years, Dr. Wahls has received countless requests for further training and one-on-one lessons in how to incorporate her Protocol into health, wellness, and medical practices across the world. Earlier this year, Dr. Wahls piloted a coaching program that was available to the general public and delivered online. This first-time experience proved to be full of important lessons and some significant growing pains. Undeterred, Dr. Wahls worked closely with her business development team, legal counsel, and other experts in the health and wellness space, and she determined that she would move forward with an in-person training event following her acclaimed Wahls Protocol Seminar that will serve as the primary basis for certification. This program is expected to evolve and grow in coming years.

The Health Professional Workshop

Dr. Wahls is offering a Health Professional Workshop that delves even deeper into the science of her Protocol and how it works to restore health and vitality. In order to be eligible for certification, you MUST attend the 2017 Wahls Protocol Seminar and the additional one-day Health Professional Workshop. The Seminar runs from August 3 - August 5, and the Workshop (which is mandatory for certification) will take place immediately following the Seminar on August 6.

NOTE: Attending the Health Professional Workshop will not automatically result in certification! It is, however, required to receive certification.
