Health and Wellness Online provides courses about holistic living styles, and is a provider of CEUs for the Ohio Chemical Dependency Professionals Board.
After years of neglecting my health and eating the standard American diet, I was diagnosed with auto-immune disease. I took oral chemotherapy for 2 years, and after remaining very ill, decided to heal myself. I succeeded with a combination of holistic approaches and now practice a healthy lifestyle!
Commonly known as Dr. P in the college classrooms, I have been teaching in universities for the past 12 years, focusing on mental health and specializing in addictions treatment and prevention. I decided to focus on chemical dependency because I grew up in a family with drug abuse.
Since then, I have been interested in exploring legitimate, evidence-based pathways to full recovery and maintenance of optimal health using holistic approaches. For 40 years, I have been involved in the study of such healing strategies. I am currently studying at the Maryland University of Integrative Health in their health and wellness coaching program, specializing in holistic nutrition.
I created the Prism Theory of Personality in 1998, which looks into the areas of emotions, thoughts, physical health, and spirituality, and how these four areas interact to create optimal health.
My mission is to inform and promote a healthy lifestyle in individuals by providing relevant and excellent evidence-based education.
