***** I want to scream from the Mountain Top ***** Five Star Training, Well Worth It ***** 9/8/2013

To Whom It May Assist: My name is Erica. In May 2013, I was extremely obese weighing 374 pounds. I decided it was time to take control of my life, my health, my weight. As I embarked on this journey I sought out environments where I can become knowledgeable about Nutrition and Health Care. This is when I found the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine (WINM). After reviewing the site, I immediately enrolled in Holistic Nutrition and Holistic Health Care programs as I felt these programs were exactly what I needed restore normal health and weight. At the time I enrolled I thought I would simply complete these programs and it would help me transform my life. Going to WINM has been so much more for me. I am so grateful to this Institute. Since beginning classes in June I have lost 40lbs. WINM has equipped me with the information I needed to be successful in my journey for weight loss. With the knowledge I obtained from WINM I am sure I will continue to make better choices and lose more weight. I now have a wealth of information about Nutrition and Health Care. During the last three months with WINM it has also sparked an interest and passion for becoming a Health Care professional. Thus I will continue on with the WINM into the Naturopathology program. Additionally, I will take the certification exam through the American Naturopathic and Holistic Association and the American Association of Nutritional Consultants. Instructor Dr. Jen Martinez-Bentley is an amazing woman who has numerous certifications. She is extremely intelligent and very good instructor. I enjoy taking classes with Jen. I wanted public thank Dr. Jen Martinez-Bentley and the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine for teaching me how to save my life. I hope this testimony has been helpful to you in your journey. Warm Regards, Erica 202-276-2584 more

Washington Institute: An oasis for both pampering and health 8/18/2013

I've been impressed with the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine ever since discovering them ten years ago. Their growth and development of a dynamic team of practitioners creates an effective menu of choices. Whether a person is seeking to enjoy spa-like treatments and massage, or has specific issues of health, there are qualified practitioners to meet many of the needs of DC residents and those who choose to make the journey to this oasis. (They have some facilities at other locations, so call and ask about a site near you.) I myself have sampled some of the services there. In addition, I'm biased in their favor because I refer patients to contact them and have had good reports of their visits. more

Great Therapy and Homeopathy! 8/18/2013

If you are looking for a professional,clean, comfortable and modern certified place to go for your alternative therapy needs, the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine (WINM) is the place to go to! I had been experiencing sinus problems, along with inflammation in one of my knees due to an old injury. Robert, who provides manual therapy treated me first. What a wonderful treatment! Had such great relief that I haven't had for a long time! After I expressed my concerns about possibly further injuring my knee by exercising, Robert suggested that I research Tai Chi and Chair Yoga for consideration. I accepted the advise, did my research, chose Chair Yoga to start with and have good results. Minor stress on my knees! I then met with Dr. Victoria Goldsten who specializes in Homeopathy. She tested me and determined which homeopathic remedies would work with me to aid in clearing up the sinus problem and support the removal of inflammation in my knee. Wow, what a pleasant experience! I hope in sharing this that if you believe in, rely on alternative healthcare/therapies, or want to complement your medical treatment/protocol with alternative healthcare/therapies, highly consider the WINM to meet you needs. In knowing, experiencing and sharing this, the WINM will no longer be one of the best kept secrets in DC, but one that is known in a wider circle for its wide array of professional, exceptional, certified/licensed practitioners, FNPs, MDs who provide outstanding services! Prices for services are fair and competitive. more

I get sinus pressure and headaches in the spring and I got tired of taking pain pills. I was talking to a co-worker and she told me about homeopathics and lymphatic drainge massage. I was ready to try anything because I was sick of being in pain. I found Victoria and Yemi at an alternative medicine center and i was very suprised as to how good the treatment was. I now have less pressure and feel like a normal person again. more

The Best Acupressure Acupuncture Combination Treatment 7/2/2011

I highly recommend the acupuncture and acupressure expertise of B.K. Mudahar at the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine. For the last two years I had gone to B.K. for acupuncture too relieve joint pains and improve healthy energy flow and circulation and open sinuses from allergies/colds. At the dose of B.K.'s acupuncture followed by acupressure, I feel great relief and definite increase in energy. Following a fall she helped greatly with the healing of bruised, aching areas. She is highly skilled. I heartely recommend her. more

Quality Reiki and Chakra Balancing 5/2/2009

"My name is Brittany and I would like to say a few words about my experience with Reiki Master David Wright. I am 28 years old and I am in recovery from drugs and alcohol. David and I met through a mutual friend and after talking with him I decided to try a reiki treatment. I have to admit I was skeptical at first but at the same time I was very open to the possibility of the treatment helping bring me back into balance. I was very pleased with the way I felt physically, emotionally and spiritually after the first treatment but that was just the beginning. Over the years I have come to David seeking friendship and support, as well as reiki through my recovery and he always greets me with open arms. He has since moved away but we still keep in touch. Most times just having a conversation with him makes me feel like I just had a treatment. I have had Reiki treatments from other Reiki Masters and I have to say that though all of them have been helpfull, I have yet to experience such a powerful force of positive life giving energy as I experienced working with David. There is no doubt that he was put here for a very specific reason. To help others reach their full potential through the work that he does. Thank you for listening. Sincerely, Charlotte Brittany W." more

Great Intuitive Life Coaching 8/11/2007

Ms. Enid Valentive with the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine treated my stress and anxiety with an Acupressure/Reiki/Guided Imagery session. During the session she played relaxing music and burned therapeutic oils. Her session took me to a happy place in my mind which helped me see my self worth. That may sound a little silly but it really is true. She helped me learn how to live my life in a positive way. She helped me let go of negative thoughts and guided me to positive thoughts. Her session was better than going to a psycho-therapist. She created more positive energy than I ever had before with a conventional medical practitioner/psychologist. She is very loving and nurturing, much like a loving unconditional mother. She is very helpful with depression, anxiety, stress management and if you think your are loosing it or going to have a nervous breakdown. I would highly recommend Enid if you are really stressed out from life. ------- P.G. more

Natural Lymph Node Repair 7/14/2007

Dr. Goldsten helped me - lymph node repair After having a stress test I was advised to have an angiogram due to the results of the test and family history. Following the procedure I started having pain in the groin area and also my leg gradually got black and blue like it was bruised. After many complaints the doctor finally ordered a CAT scan and a sonogram of the area. The results of the tests revealed that the artery had not healed properly and blood was seeping out which caused the bruising of my leg and also an aneurism had formed. Artery reconstruction surgery was required to remove the aneurism and repair the artery. After the surgery I began to experience severe pain in the surgical area. A MRI was performed and the results showed that the lymph gland was damaged during the reconstruction surgery. It was recommended that I have additional surgery to cauterize the gland to correct the situation. I was told that this was the only way to solve the problem. I did not want to undergo additional corrective surgery so I contacted Dr. Goldsten to see if the lymph gland could be repaired with natural or homeopathic treatment. Dr. Goldsten put me on a professional homeopathic formula designed to heal lymph nodes. Within three weeks the pain was gone. On occasion if I happen to exert myself with excessive walking or exercise I will use the formula to help protect and heal my lymph system.The above MRI also detected fibroids in the uterus. I contacted Dr. Goldsten and started on a remedy directed toward this condition. A short time later I had a pelvic sonogram and was told that they could not see any fibroids. Also in the past, when I had my routine colonoscopy, small polyps would be removed. The next colonoscopy I had after taking homeopathic remedies showed that there was no polyps in the colon. Dr. Goldsten has been caring for the sick since 1973 and is currently working at the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine in Washington, D.C. She is the director of the alternative Medicine at the Washington Home and Hospice. more
