My name is Amahl B. Van Halsema, but you can call me VAN. I have been a certified holistic health coach and therapeutic Pilates* teacher for 35 years.
I became certified with Lawrence Wilson, MD to teach the science of Nutritional Balancing because I found it to be the best and most comprehensive nutrition and supplement program on the market. It was developed by doctors and researchers for people from all walks of life. Going through the program as a patient convinced me to become a certified NB practitioner.
I also have become a Certified Gluten Practitioner (CGP) through the certification course of Dr. Tom O’Bryan. Now I can teach and offer the newest research and testing concerning all wheat and gluten disorders. Wheat and gluten can cause as many as 300 autoimmune diseases!
I lived a disciplined life. Organic food only since 1985, with holistic studies, body movement, fasts, regimens, and detoxes from top doctors/gurus around the world. I grew up traveling in many countries and experienced high fevers, diarrhea, parasites, typhoid, and a severe spinal infection all before becoming physically disabled in four car accidents. As a result of the third car accident, I was diagnosed with an incurable neurological disease and 3 autoimmune diseases. I had little left of a functioning body.
I tried every conventional drug, therapy, surgery, and treatment available to heal. After a very long personal journey, including 109 visits to the operating room and 10 years of drug cocktails including daily morphine and benzos, I found NB. Doing the NB program brought stability slowly back to my body. And adding in the gluten-autoimmune adaptations that I later learned as a certified gluten practitioner (CGP) gave me a functioning body that far surpassed my healing hopes and expectations!
Nutritional Balancing Program
NB is a serious program for those who are serious about being healthy. In addition to healing physical trauma, it is the only system I know of that successfully helps you: Release ALL heavy metals; detoxify from chemicals and additives; recover from emotional trauma and depression; heal eating disorders; stabilize the immune system; lose weight; kill parasites; provide a solid foundation to heal autoimmune diseases (of which there are more than 300 including MS, RA, lupus, diabetes, atherosclerosis, psoriasis and scleroderma); recover the thyroid; balance minerals; heal adrenal fatigue; regain fertility; get rid of allergies; and fully reclaim general good health.
To learn how others have benefitted from NB, please read these Cases/Testimonials. Some of the testimonials are addressed to Dr. L. Wilson M.D. He is the current head of the Nutritional Balancing program. He continues to work closely with all of us who are NB practitioners.
For more about the NB program, please see the Start Your NB Program tab here on my site.
Wheat & Gluten – The CGP Program
The CGP program helps people to delve even deeper into their bodies to discover if they have leaky gut, impaired immunity, food sensitivities, gluten sensitivity, wheat-related disorders, and other health dysfunctions.
For more about the CGP program, please see the Wheat & Gluten tab here on my site. You do not need to be a Nutritional Balancing client in order to do the gluten and wheat testing, evaluation, and lifestyle consultations.
