Cindy Stelten, a local day care provider, was awarded a natural health professional certification from the National Association of Natural Health Professionals. Stelten was officially recognized at a ceremony Sunday, Sept. 22, after completing the 18-month seminar course in Alexandria, Minn.
“My goal has been to always help people,” said Stelten, who retired from the Kimball Area Fire and Rescue in January 2013 after serving for 28 years. “When I see someone suffering from pain or discomfort, I always want to know that I can make a difference.” Her certification also complements her Young Living Inc. business now in its second year, she said.
Completion of all five certification seminars provides Stelten with the distinction of becoming a Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP). The information in these five weekend seminars provided her with the hands-on application of various theories and techniques used by natural health practitioners including nutrition, body systems, iridology, western herbology and practicum. Stelten plans to maintain her certification by attending at least one capstone seminar each year.
