    Ep. 111: Stand For What You Believe, It’s Time To Challenge the Status Quo

    Many practitioners today are frustrated due to the limits of the healthcare system. But they continue to abide by the ineffective, systemic strategy that binds their ability to think outside the box to help better serve their patients. Many are afraid of opinions, judgements, and ridicule that might taint their reputation. But to continue to hold onto the ineffective ways only perpetuates dysfunction and inefficiency. Now is the time to be courageous and truly stand for what you believe. You can begin to challenge the status quo and commit to better serving those who need your help. In this episode, Dr. Connie discusses the importance of pushing the boundaries to start a positive revolution that can have generational impact in the future of health, wellness, and medicine.

    Ep. 109: Key Missing Ingredient That’s Preventing You From Getting Your Patients the Results They Want

    Ep. 109: Key Missing Ingredient That’s Preventing You From Getting Your Patients the Results They Want

    Many practitioners tend to focus on their expert domain, which results in them defending their limitations. This is because each expert domain, or specialty, is only a piece of the bigger puzzle. Without the ability to see the big picture (complete puzzle), you’ll only end up providing incremental or partial results.
    In order to provide powerful outcomes for your patients, you must learn to integrate ALL the pieces of the puzzle to finally make your patients WHOLE. In this episode, Dr. Connie will share how you can do just that.

    Ep. 108: Your Clinical Knowledge is Only as Effective as Your Ability to Empower Your Patients to Help Themselves

    Many practitioners overly emphasize tangible, scientific knowledge when it comes to patient care. But oftentimes they're met with disappointment and frustration due to patient non-compliance.
    You have to remember that your knowledge is only as effective as your ability to elicit, in your patients, the desire to take action. In this episode, Dr. Connie discusses the importance of knowledge, but also the importance of layering your coaching ability to empower your patients to take action.

    Ep. 107: Understanding the Psychology of Chronically Ill Patients

    Ep. 107: Understanding the Psychology of Chronically Ill Patients

    Chronically ill patients struggle to get through their day. Many of them have lost their ability to perform basic functional daily tasks. This creates a complex psychological struggle that keeps them from having the will to help themselves get better.
    Despite well intended treatment approaches by medical practitioners, many patients disappoint and frustrate their practitioners with non-compliance. It’s important to apply transformational coaching skills to get patients out of their heads towards taking productive action for their well being. This will radically increase patient compliance because your transformational coaching will empower your patients to help themselves.
    In this episode, Dr. Connie teaches key important coaching strategies that you can deploy to get better outcomes for your patients.

Dawning Light Review ,

NOT AN ETHICAL BUSINESS!!

In response to the owners lies posted on Google reviews. Do not trust this business! It is owned by an unscrupulous woman, who hides behind the “team”. These were the actions of the owner, Connie Jeon, and are not a reflection of the staff.

————————————————————————————————————————

THIS REVIEW PERTAINS TO ALKALINE WELLNESS. I DID NOT RECEIVE THESE SERVICES, AND I WAS NOT PROVIDED WITH A REFUND, AS CLAIMED BY THE OWNER.

Going point by point…

(“Agreement”) by and between Saerom Physical Therapy, Inc. DBA Alkaline Wellness, a Georgia S corporation.

There were 2 transactions, one processed on July 20th and the other on July 21st. A contract was presented on August 3rd, 2 weeks after the transaction date. There was no mention of a contract prior to or any previous knowledge of a contractual obligation to Alkaline Wellness or any other business.

On August 3rd, I was instructed to do the following, “To ensure you continue to receive access to your program content, please take a look at the contract and sign it when you get a chance! There is legal lingo in the contract but I can assure you we aren't trying to get anything past you. So if you have any questions at all about the contract, please don't hesitate to ask!”

I asked the following questions, “I was on the FYM podcast on YouTube and heard about your special offer for full course payment. Am I able to participate in that opportunity since I just began? The episode mentions bonuses and a special offer of $10k on full price payments. I was also curious how the rewards program works.”

To which they responded, “So yesterday's podcast was an encore episode where we replayed one of our Functional Yoga Medicine Workshop sessions from our June workshop. I think the offer you are talking about is the fast action bonuses. Those bonuses were offered for anyone who signed up before July 6th. Unfortunately we are no longer offering those bonuses as part of the program at this time. I can't make any promises but I will check with our team to see if there's anyway we can offer these to you.”

I continued to follow up and they never did address any of those questions.

The discovery call was requested by me, not them, through their link on YouTube. There is an option to pay online, no discovery call required, as they are stated.

On this discovery call, I asked Connie to send me program information about the 500 hr. Yoga Teacher Training Course that is included with the Functional Medicine Program. I was told there was no program information and she only offered that so people who already had their 200 hr. certification wouldn’t feel like they were going backwards. She said what they would teach me would depend on how much I already knew. THAT IS MOST CERTAINLY NOT UP TO YOGA ALLIANCE STANDARDS.

Students do not have full access to programming upfront. They open it up as you progress and ZERO work was completed as MY FATHER FEEL CRITICALLY ILL AND ALMOST DIED. There is no evidence AS CONNIE SAYS OF 2 MONTHS OF WORK, as that just simply didn’t happen. I didn’t even make it to this first monthly deadline which was to be August 24th.

On August 19th, I informed them that my father had a heart attack, had no oxygen going to his brain for over 8 minutes, was saved by local authorities then and had 2 subsequent heart attacks. My Dad’s life was saved by the Forsyth County Fire and Rescue and the harrowing ordeal was covered by local news. Later these heroes were awarded with the life saving department award, that is also all documented and part of public record.

I requested a time extension as I obviously needed to be with my Dad every day in the hospital for nearly a month. On Sep 7th, I told them I would not be able to continue due to the severity of my dad’s irreparable condition and his need for 24/7 care.

The fact that you say you added new policies, procedures, and an additional “clause” to your already egregious agreement, is quite frankly PITIFUL. You are profiting off of someone else’s misfortune and trying to ensure that you can continue to do so in the future?

As of now, $10,500 is still in dispute, the business has been reported to the Consumer Protection Division of Georgia, and an attorney has been retained.

Really Connie, come back to your purpose. Wasn’t it to help people? That’s how you present yourself. Yet you have no kindness or empathy for a life threatening condition. How would you feel if that was your father? Would a yoga class be your priority? It makes no sense. You have no business keeping money you did not earn, no matter how you want to try and frame it.

Why not focus on the bigger mission and creating value for others? Or are you just in this to get the next dollar by any means necessary? I remember you boasting that your employees don’t even see you anymore, as if that’s a good thing. I think you’ve lost touch with your business and your heart.

You seem to think you can do whatever you want and nobody is going to hold you accountable. Well that’s not true. Treating people fairly is the right thing to do. I will do what I need to do so that you can’t take advantage of anyone else.
