St. Theodore’s Hospital

Therapeutic Fasting Certification Program
Directed By Tom Coghill and Patrick O’Connor

We are currently offering a 4 week, informal training and research program. This program is a pilot project for the creation of The St. Theodore’s Integrative Health Institute. We are looking for hospitals/doctors/medical professionals/caregivers and health consultants that would like to be a part of the clinical trial being conducted at St. Theodore’s Hospital to become certified as an Integrative Health Practitioner.
Upon completion of the training, participants will be fully capable of integrating Therapeutic fasting into their hospital/clinic to be used in conjunction with conventional medicine. They will have also contributed to the development of a clinical trial that will have a significant impact in the treatment of chronic degenerative diseases.

Fasting Certification Requirements

* Participants must hold a bachelor’s degree or have 3-5 years of experience in a medical or allied health field such as nursing, physical therapy, health education, exercise physiology, psychotherapy, or nutrition. Those certified in fields such as acupuncture, life coaching, or health coaching may also apply.

    Hi Tom!
    I am a 23 year old female. I got a Bachelor’s in Sport & Exercise Science last year (Kinesiology, Physiology) when I graduated college; I’m interested in this certification program! However, I can’t afford the cost. I was wondering if you offer internship programs or work-exchange programs or anything of that sort. If you have any more information, please email me if you have time! Thanks so much!

      Hi Amy
      Yes you can study here for free if you are on the team. You can live here for under $200 a month very comfortably. We have a new team starting up on May 22nd. With your background you could help with the research and compiling the results of the patients. 3 are coming in this month. So yes. I can call you on the phone if you give me your number and time zone.
