Member Spotlight: Warriors Wellness Solutions

Warrior Wellness Solutions is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing personalized integrative health approaches, wellness education and specialized training to wounded, ill and injured warriors, their families and caregivers.  Their programs are tailored to veterans and service members who have obtained a physical or mental injury, illnesses or wound during their military service.

There are 700,000 combat veterans in the United States. Among them our nation’s wounded, ill and injured (WII) warriors struggle physically, emotionally and socially to find viable support to help them redefine their life purpose and to achieve optimal health and wellness. The Veterans Administration and Department of Defense offer training and education to these veterans but they lack the services that address chronic disease, lifestyle, overall health, and restore a sense of purpose.

​Warrior Wellness Solutions offers, at no cost to the client, services that fill these voids through improving the physical and mental health by reducing dependency on medications, rehabilitation exercise programs that help reduce chronic pain and restore functional movement and also reduce the symptoms caused by traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and more.

Many warriors have been stripped of their mobility and health which cause them to struggle with low self-esteem due to a disability or psychological injury.  The Warrior Wellness Solutions program is designed to build confidence and guide them forward without fear of rehabilitation. Depending on the needs of the warrior, the program will last from six weeks to six months.

Many warriors may seek life coaching for reasons other than mental health. These reasons range from career decisions, wellness planning, and personal organization. Additionally, Warrior Wellness Services provides personal strength assessments, career transition assessments and counseling, along with a Time Management primer for warriors with stress related disorders and/or traumatic brain injuries.

The Warrior Life Coach® blends together the disciplines of military planning, neuroscience, and personal efficiency with the intent of providing all clients a unique and systematic approach to accomplishing more in their lives.

“I don’t know where I would be without the support of Warrior Wellness Solutions.  After just six months of Integrative Nutrition and Foundation Training I am now off all of my pain medications and no longer use a cane.  My mobility and over life attitude have improved dramatically and that has transferred to my family, my wife, and my three daughters.”  Sgt. Brett Goins, USMC, USMC Wounded Warrior Battalion East, Camp Lejeune
