PEARL MARIA B. WILKINSON
Certified Holistic Health Practitioner &
Detox Specialist & Founder
I am the founder and CEO of Pearl Wellness & Detox, an urban wellspring for healing. I hold a Master's of Divinity from Yale Divinity School (May 2018) and am a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner. In addition, I am also a part-time minister with my husband, Kyle Bruce Wilkinson (MDiv 2018) and I am currently completing my Board Certification for as a Traditional Naturopathic Doctor.
I am fulfilling my passion for helping others to improve their mind-body-spirit integration and health, optimizing their holistic potential and thereby experiencing more joyful, productive, purposeful and balanced living.
I came into the field of holistic health education, coaching, and speaking via my background in Montessori Education, holding a B.A. from Amherst College, Montessori teaching experience, and my AMS Montessori Training.
I spent the better part of the previous twenty years of my life traveling the world, educating, and researching a wide array of holistic health principles for energy, beauty, longevity and conscious living. Over the course of my studies, teaching and explorations, I discovered my purpose in educating others on the potential for whole-person transformation through a renewing of one's mind, body and spirit connectedness.
I received my training and certification to practice Nutritional Coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), and I am a Board Certified Member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
At IIN, I took full advantage of an opportunity to study over a 100 different dietary theories—combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts like Keto, Paleo, Veganism, Whole 30, Intermittent Fasting and Raw Foods. There, I studied under some of the most expert names in the fields of nutrition, mind-body medicine and natural healing: world-renowned experts such as Deepak Chopra MD, Andrew Weil MD, Sally Fallon Morell, David Katz MD, Barry Sears PhD, David Wolfe and many others.
In addition to my training in the field of nutrition, I went on to receive training and certification to practice colon hydrotherapy from the International School for Colon Hydrotherapy. I practice colon hydrotherapy and nutritional coaching out of my Central Park West office in Manhattan and have studied under a team of hydrotherapists who boast over 70 years of cumulative experience in helping individuals establish healthy bowel functions and achieve radiant health through natural lifestyle changes.
Whether in the classroom, leading a workshop, or meeting one-on-one with private clients my passion to dramatically improve the quality of other's lives is ever the same.
