The Christina Pirello School of Natural Cooking and Integrative Health Studies
Bernardo Merizalde, MD
Some thoughts from a graduate:
"I’ve been in numerous holistic health training programs and have studied many alternative health modalities over the past few decades. Some of these trainings were two to four-year programs. Tremendous value, great credentials - and they’ve offered me great opportunities career-wise. Most of them I strived to complete and was happy when I graduated.
But there has been something very different about finishing and letting go of this course of study with Christina and I’ve been trying to figure out for a few weeks now what about this program was really different and why it feels more difficult to let go of (besides loving to eat!)
I’ve come to realize that what Christina’s course offers is truly life-giving and life-saving. Every day of my life now I use what I’ve learned - from cutting my carrots to thinking about how to eat for a certain event. And I weave this nutritional lifestyle information into my practice with clients, students and online readers.
The grief of letting go of this program and the people has been more difficult, I believe, because when we cook amazing, beautiful, live food in the kitchen with one another - no matter who those people are - and we eat together, its like a ceremony, a celebration of creation of amazing love in the form of wholesome healthy delicious food. There is something very special about that!
