HWCA was created out of the understanding that nutrition education alone will not produce a successful coach just as nutrition alone will not produce truly healthy clients. Elite coaches are trained to succeed so that their clints can. Our Holistic Gut Practitioner certification program combines the best of cutting edge gut health nutrition with an emphasis on brain-gut synergy, powerful coaching strategies and essential business mentoring to produce truly successful coaches who coach on an ELITE level.

Programs Overview

Student Success Stories

I had gotten previously certified at another school, excited to start my dream. I unfortunately graduated with high hopes and little knowledge of how to actually design and grow a business. HWCA not only gave me exceptional Gut Health training, they also mentored me through designing my own brand, creating a business system and they help me continually grow with the monthly masterminds. They gave me exactly what I was missing!
