We can all practice wellness in our lives!
Aligning with wellness, means focusing on conditions that best promote healing, regeneration and renewal in your body. The educational materials provided here focus on five pillars of wellness: mindfulness, food, relaxation, movement, and joy. Each of these pillars can help to cultivate greater health and wellbeing.
The mission of Nurture Healing is to inform, inspire and empower people to create greater wellness in their lives and in the world.
Nurture Healing was created by Dr. Joanna Garritano to provide tools and skills to help people align with greater wellness. When we nurture our bodies, we are better able to reclaim and enhance our health. Aligning with wellness not only effects our own health, it also empowers us to make choices that bring greater health and balance into the world. By making healthy choices, we bring positive change into our families, into our communities, and onto the planet.
Every move toward greater wellness matters.
This is where tools, skills and lifestyle interventions can help. When we use certain skills such as mindfulness, food choices, relaxation, stress reduction, and exercise – we can improve our health and almost always increase our sense of wellbeing. When we take actions that promote health and wellness, we allow our bodies the proper conditions in which to restore the greatest possible degree of well-being.
Whether we realize it or not, we each have within us an inherent strength and resilience. By becoming active participants in creating health and wellness, we tap into our own inner strength and we can help to trigger greater balance and harmony in our own lives and in the world.

As a person living with a chronic illness it can be a challenge to keep a positive attitude on days when pain has flared up or I am discouraged by set backs. From nutrition to mindfulness to understanding the new science of the body and brain, Joanna has created an integrated, empowering course supported by extensive research and resources. Each session left me with “can-do” energy and great tools to support my healing process. I think this new paradigm approach to healing is what so many have been searching for. I’m very grateful to Joanna for creating and offering this program.
I highly recommend Joanna Garritano MD’s seminars for anyone living with a chronic illness, or anyone with a family member who is struggling with illness, as well as those who simply want to feel healthier and happier in their lives. Joanna combines well-settled science with her own experience in healing from an autoimmune disease. Her wisdom and compassion narrate powerful steps we can take to encourage healing in our bodies and lives. Joanna encourages us to align our behavior to choose healing through nutrition, exercise, joy, meditation, releasing suppressed emotions and reducing stress. One of my favorite lessons was that we should not fight against what is, that we should release our attachment to outcomes while staying in the moment, and that whatever pain is in our lives, it cannot stop us from experiencing joy. Feeling awe, love, gratitude, hope, forgiveness can all contribute to our healing process. Thank you Joanna for sharing your experiences, medical knowledge and hopeful ideas with our family; we all benefited greatly.
I have been struggling with physical issues and have found that Dr. Joanna Garritano is a very compassionate individual who motivates the listener to take control of one’s illness. She provides the tools that are needed to tackle one’s issues, to help place oneself in a better space. She tackles both emotional and physical needs, providing solutions that can bring one to a better, happier body and spirit.
There are two main solutions to my illness, both medical assistance and my own ‘realignment’. Dr. Garritano has provided me the means to realign myself so that I can get to a better state. I am hoping that I will not need the medical assistance. Exercise, change in diet, and meditation is the way to go. More natural and more lasting. I have already instituted some of these changes and am beginning to feel the difference. Kudos to you Dr. Garritano.
I have been suffering from chronic pain from a pinched nerve in my neck that has affected everything I do in life; work, exercise, and leisure. I have been to specialists, surgeons, and physical therapists with no real improvement. I signed up for Dr. Joanna’s audio course on healing and my life has finally started to transform. Dr. Joanna has helped me change the messages I’ve been sending to my body, create a space to allow healing by making some big changes in my lifestyle and diet, and she helped me recreate positive perceptions and interactions with my pain. In addition, she has taken her personal time to meet with me and has been in communication with me via email whenever I’ve needed advice or have a question. I’m very grateful to report that now I feel IN CHARGE of my healing, and I’m finally starting to see improvements in my health and reduction in my pain. Dr. Joanna is real. She is authentic. She really wants to help and she’s been there herself, which gives her credibility, empathy, and compassion. I highly recommend getting in touch with Dr. Joanna if you are searching for healing.
I believe that the Universe leads us where we need to be, and that may include sickness. Through Dr. Garritano’s guidance and first-hand experience, I have been led to new ways to promote healing from within. If you, too, are ready to look at healing in a new way, bless yourself with following her lead. Thank you, Dr. Garritano!
