My education at Hawthorn changed my life and the lives of the many clients I have helped through my career as a holistic health practitioner. This certification was one of the best decisions of my life. Nutrition education in the US is lacking and having the knowledge for oneself is invaluable. For the last ten years, I have enjoyed optimal health, and I owe that to Hawthorn. | submitted Oct 09, 2018
