Be A Functional Medicine Health Coach
BE A PATIENT
Unlike traditional doctors, our care team always focuses on root cause resolution.
Isolating the key imbalance responsible for the health concerns you’re experiencing right now.
Also known as functional medicine, we seek to give you solutions, not more bandaids to cover up the symptoms (or addressing side effects of drugs with even more drugs).
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Essentially, if you take care of your body it will take care of you, but some people simply need help with that! If you decide to become a health coach, you will have the opportunity to help countless people leave the best life they can. Challenging yourself intellectually while fulfilling yourself emotionally, becoming a health coach could be the right career move for you!
Become a Health CoachIf you decide to become a health coach, you will be certified to help your patients with a wide variety of health issues. You are going to follow an approach known as integrative medicine. The goal of this approach is to focus on how the mind, body, and spirit interact with each other. Instead of focusing on different symptoms and individual conditions, you are going to focus on how the various organic systems throughout the body relate to one another. Then, you will prioritize non-toxic, natural solutions that will help your clients lead their ideal life. There are a number of conditions that you are going to learn about. That way, you will be able to treat them. Keep in mind that many clients suffer from more than one of these conditions, which is why it is important to understand how they relate to one another. Some of the most common conditions that you will help clients with can include:
- Gastrointestinal problems such as irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, and celiac disease
- Metabolic issues such as diabetes, pre-diabetes, and metabolic syndrome
- Cardiovascular issues such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and chronic heart disease
- Chronic fatigue issues
- Mental health issues such as anxiety and stress
Get Health CoachingWhen you decide to provide someone with access to health coaching, you need to understand what is going to happen during the session. When a new client shows up to meet with you, your goal is to take the time to understand them personally. You need to understand who they are, how they work, and how they developed their problems. That way, you can help them address these appropriately. Therefore, most new client sessions are going to begin with a 90-minute diagnostic session. Notice that this is very different from a typical visit with a healthcare provider, which may not even last 30 minutes. The goal here is to take a deep dive into their medical history. Learn everything you can about their symptoms, goals, expectations, lifestyle, concerns, and overall health. Then, you will conduct a full evaluation to find the appropriate care option. It is important to take a well-rounded approach when it comes to the treatment of these conditions. Many of your clients may need in-depth testing to figure out exactly what is wrong with them. As a health coach, it is going to be your job to recommend certain tests and keep options in mind. That way, you can place your clients in the best position possible to be successful when improving their health.
Our TeamIf you decide to get your certification through our team, you will have access to experienced professionals who understand how to place you in the best position to learn everything you will need to be a strong health coach. We take an integrative approach, so instead of focusing on each individual organ system, we want to teach you how the body's organ systems relate to one another. We also take the time to provide you with individualized attention. Our team will work with you on a one-on-one basis to make sure that you understand all the material we cover. That way, you can communicate effectively with your clients. Finally, we also want to teach you that every client is different. If you try to take the same approach with every client, you are not going to get the best results. We will teach you how to get to know your clients on a personal level. That way, you can help them in the best way possible.

Why Wholestic Nutrition?
After years of hearing this same story from his clients, Dr. Sentissi set out to create a clinic that helped people get to the root cause of their health issues in the short-term, and empowered them with the tools and knowledge to continue their progress long after they have left the clinic.
Working with Wholestic Nutrition has been a great experience. I appreciate the personal functional medicine approach looking for the root cause of symptoms rather than just treating the symptoms. I also take satisfaction in actively participating in my own health with the encouragement of my coach and the expertise of Dr. Sentissi, the practitioner at Wholestic Nutrition. The functional medicine report, food sensitivity testing as well as the bloodwork and GI testing allowed them to create a personalized plan for me to follow. I would not have been able to do it on my own, and have learned so much that I will carry with me always. The ocular migraines I had regularly for years are gone, my headaches are gone, brain fog has reduced significantly as well as bloating I experienced after eating. I am so thankful I made this investment in myself and will continue eating what I know keeps me healthy!
Angie Garcia, B.A., NHC, CBWC, NC
After 10 days of following the detox diet my blood sugar has dropped a lot! My doctor took my A1C and it was 6.9 – the lowest I have had since my original (Type II diabetes) diagnosis. I no longer need Humalog and have lowered my Lantus to 16 units, down from 27. My doctor is very supportive of my working with Wholestic Nutrition. I am really enjoying the menu! Looking forward to this journey with my husband on board as well.
Meet Jamie and her son who has been suffering with seizures for years. Listen to her story how Jordan has been seizure free now for a month and counting due to our work on nutrition. The diagnostic tests we ran with Wholestic Nutrition have been life changing by identifying the root causes. So excited to see another patient regaining quality of life. Jamie is an amazing mom who took the challenge of clean personalized eating to a new level. Wholestic Nutrition may have performed the analysis and provided the protocols but Jamie did all the work in prepping food. Well done Jamie McCabe.
“Dr. Sentissi Has Changed My Life For The Better…”
I’ve had stomach problems for as long as I can remember. No matter where I went, no one could seem to help me. However, after meeting with Dr. Sentissi I knew my problems had finally been solved. His comprehensive health assessment gave me the tools to finally improve my stomach health for good!
“The Team At Wholestic Nutrition Is Life-Changing…”
“My Wife Is Finally Feeling Better, And She’s Happier Than Ever…”
My wife and I seemingly have traveled from city to city in search of someone who could help with her chronic pain. Luckily, the last stop we had to make was in Indianapolis, where Dr. Sentissi and his team at Wholestic Nutrition provided the perfect answers for my wife. She couldn’t be happier and has recommended Dr. Sentissi to all her friends!
“I Finally Have A Successful Approach To Maintaining My Health…”
It takes a lot to get me to shift my philosophy when it comes to health and wellness. That being said, Dr. Sentissi has a very unique approach with his clients that ensures they are always at ease and understanding what is being explained to them. He has given me nothing but the best advice and changed how I treat and maintain my own health completely!
“After Years Of Searching, My Stomach Problems Are Solved…”
For as long as I can remember, medical “experts” had told me I was lactose intolerant and that was what had been causing my stomach pain. Dr. Sentissi and his team looked beyond the initial diagnosis to figure out the REAL cause of my ailments. One year later, my stomach problems are finally solved.
“A Simple And Easy Process, From Appointment To Diagnosis…”
From the moment I initiated contact with Wholestic Nutrition through the web, the communications with its team of health pros has been off the charts great! Even if I had to cancel an appointment or change my scheduling, they were always more than accommodating to me to ensure I got the care I needed.

Watch this lecture presented by Dr. Anass Sentissi and Dr Stephen Pfeifer that highlights the use of genetic testing to support individuals with autism.
The Genetics of AutismEvery 20 minutes another child in the US is diagnosed with autism. It is estimated that 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder, an increase from 1 in 88 over just a two year period, while some sources report numbers even higher than these.
While these numbers are staggering, they do little to reflect how these disorders affect families.
Supporting autistic children typically involves a multi-faceted, complex treatment program. For many families and providers alike, the missing piece has been genetic testing. Through identification and treatment of genetic defects these children may greatly improve their symptoms and overall quality of life.
