Natural Health and Wellness
A lifestyle of spiritual strength, good health, positive emotions, and mental clarity is a birthright. However somehow we have lost connection with the very essence of who we are as divine energy. My goal in providing this certification course to all communities is to do my part in restoring the principles of nature's balance to a world in dire need of change. "If you are looking to balance every aspect of your life and make a career in holistic health, the Natural Health and Wellness Consultant certification is for you.”
- Dr. Akua

“Here is a powerful tool that closes gaps in mainstream allopathic options. It is used as a course text and is an invaluable reference for my holistic health business and to have around for daily family care. Dr. Gray’s vast knowledge of the human body and natural remedies along with her commitment to ensure all are mentally, physically and spiritually whole must be commended, and is evidenced in these pages.”

"I'm riding a wave of such beautiful energy. There is light all around me, and I am receiving and transmitting that light. I'm learning to tap into my powers. I am a healer, I am divine. I give special appreciation to Dr. Akua Gray for her presence and beautiful energy as well.

"I give thanks to Sonet Akua Gray for the selfless lessons and love she has shared with me from day one. It has been almost ten years and through her guidance I can say I am on purpose. Her tutelage has shown me I can accomplish anything! She has taught me to remember, “You are Light, You are Love, You are the Divine Manifestation of the Creator's power in physical form....and you must live each day like you KNOW WHO YOU ARE."
-Maat D., Denver, CO
This class has given me a different perspective on life. The Consultant Manual is something I will refer to for the rest of my life as a guide to keep me on track. The certification is a sincere extension of Dr. Akua, who lives what she teaches. Hands down this class and book combination was one of the best things I have been able to experience, and Dr. Akua's teachings come straight from her spirit.”
-Toni Hickman, NHWC
“Taking the Natural Health and Wellness Consultant Certification course with A Life of Peace Wellness Institute gave me valuable and thorough knowledge of whole body wellness through nutrition, herbal sciences and naturopathy. Each lesson was taught to us in a way that we were able to internalize it efficiently. Not only is this knowledge helpful in my personal life but most importantly, I'm able to transfer this knowledge to clients within my business. I'm so grateful for having been exposed to these modalities.”
-Shirley Talivu Kelly, Missouri City, TX
“I am very fortunate to have taken the course on Naturopathy (Natural Health and Wellness Consultant Certification). I gained so much information and skills that upgraded my ability and confidence to work with patients, facilitate different non-invasive therapies for their healing journey and develop paths to wellness and wholeness. The manual has been a great reference book and guide for me when I do my assessments, patient care and health management. Dr. Akua’s tutelage has qualified me as a credible Naturopathic Practitioner and has put integrity into my practice. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Akua for the gift of her presence, kindness and generosity. Her passion to help individuals heal in body, mind and spirit has been an inspiration and motivation for me to do the same for my fellowmen.”
