The healing work provided by Linda Sheer BS, RN, CMTA at the Center of Awakened Health is remarkable in its depth, breath, and potency. I know of no other center where the primary provider dedicates herself wholly, from morning till evening, to the transformation of her guests, regardless of presenting condition. Her implementation of personalized detoxification and herbal therapy is superb. 5 star plus rating.

I can’t begin to say how wonderful my experience was at the Center of Awakened Health (COAH). Prior to meeting Linda and her husband and right-hand person, Jeffrey, I was an athlete (for over 30 years), in great shape, ate a primarily vegan diet, had good family genes, no illnesses (mine or familial) …. and still found that my body and what I was putting into it was out of balance. In only 3 weeks of making just a few tweaks to my diet at Linda’s suggestion PRIOR TO coming to COAH, I could see great improvements. But once I came and stayed here, was given a full body assessment, was educated on every aspect of our body systems, and started on Linda’s restorative and rejuvenating protocol, my mind, body and spirit have never been so fully aligned, healthy and in balance! She has taken her over 40 years as a nurse and holistic health practitioner and melded it with study and teachings under Dr. Robert Morse and other well-known and respected experts in the holistic health field, as well as with her own higher level of consciousness, caring and passion for healing the planet – one person at a time. To say that she is a lifesaver is an understatement. I have since recommended the COAH to many people and know that they will be equally blessed by the experience.

I have known Linda Sheer (founder and director of COAH) for almost twenty years and watched her transform the field of supplemental health care. Linda has made it her life work to seek after those practices and methods that work best in promoting good health and recovery from disease, especially for those where other health care professionals are at a loss and have given up!
The Center or Awakened Health in Southern Pines, NC is unique. This is not just another alternative or supplemental (to traditional medicine) health care facility, but one where Linda Sheer brings both traditional experience as a registered nurse and decades of experience and knowledge of the best practices for healing and health , such as, special non-invasive testing (what organ systems are off causing an imbalance ), certifications in the most progressive kinds of supplementation to assist the immune system to heal and be at its best, knowledge and experience in meditations that reduce the mind’s worry and chatter interfering with good health.

The Center sees everyone: those with chronic health problems; those who have been referred by Doctors i.e. 4th stage cancer patients; those who want to improve their overall health with the best nutrition and supplements possible.

Clients can come for a day; three-day stay or five-day stay and are worked with 12 hrs plus a day. In an atmosphere filled with nurturing and caring.

I highly recommend COAH to all – it lives up to its name in being a forerunner in “awakened health.”

The opportunity to study under Linda Sheer is one of a lifetime. Linda’s commitment to her work, and commitment to bringing health and awareness into the lives of her clients is unparalleled. I received more applicable knowledge during my certification program with Linda than any other schooling or program I have experienced. Linda shares her expertise in a way that allows it to be embodied. The teachings are lived, which results in the ability to utilize the information and apply it to the lives of my clients immediately. This has been one of the most valuable experiences I have ever had the opportunity to receive.

“I have known Linda Sheer over 20 years. As a naturopathic physician for over 30 years, it is quite rare that I meet someone with the expertise and experience of Linda Sheer. She has taught me an extraordinary amount over the years. Whenever I have a patient who needs additional help over what I am able to offer, I send them to Linda. Many times I thought the patient may only have few days left on the planet only to see them some months later revived by Linda’s profound treatments. The bottom line is: should I ever be in need of medical care, Linda Sheer BS RN, CMTA is the first person I would go to, very confident in the treatment love and care she would provide.  Maurice Werness ND”

“I cannot begin to thank you enough for all that you have done for me these past several months.  I was in a pretty dark place in terms of my health before coming to you. Now I fell more in touch with my body and mind, and my health is increasingly improving. Thanks so much for gifting me all this knowledge. Also, thank for all the time you have given to my mom and I.”


“The time I spent at Awakened Health was wonderful in every way. I felt deeply cared for, cleansed and inspired to raise my commitment to health to the highest level. The process Linda has developed is truly holistic, enjoyable and highly transformative. I give this a 5 star (tops) rating.”

“There are no words that express the gratefulness of such a blessing and gift from God that you offer lost souls.  You have awakened my spirit, my heart, my mind and my body not only to health- but to the peace and joy that come with it.  What once was lost is now found.  May God continue to hold you both in the palm of his hand.”


“One month ago I arrived at COAH weary and worn out, yet certain I was exactly where I needed to be. My 12-day stay has proven to be a life-changing experience for which I am eternally grateful.  I am empowered by the knowledge you shared that I can heal my body, mind and spirit using food, detox practices and movement therapy.  It has been exciting to turn my own home into its own ‘center of awakened health’, just by making a few simple changes.  Thank you for opening your home, your hearts and your healing spirits so that there will be one less chronically ill person in the world. Abundant love and gratitude.”


“… You’ve come to this crossroads and I will assure you choosing this direction will be rewarding. My first major supervised detox was with the Center of Awakened Health… I was soon able to make unbelievable positive self-discoveries, which continue to be made today. In the aftermath, there have been indelible transformations like a more optimistic outlook, increased self-esteem, calmed disposition, changed consuming habits and all because my expectations were exceeded on the first day. The emotional, spiritual, mental and physical plateaus I’m now walking upon since the cleanse have not been easy to reach. Linda Sheer’s unselfish love, giving of resources, and insight helped me get there in coordination with a deep desire to learn and a great support system. Healing takes patience and with her understanding, determination and wisdom about how it all works the journey towards self-discovery is simplified. I am more whole because I decided to take hold of such nurturing hands.”

“Thank you so much for your wonderful 12-day program. It has been such a help to me. Linda’s tender and focused sensibility allowed me to accomplish in a short time what I avoided facing for years! In particular I benefited from learning about the preparation of live food as well as integrating a number of different healing practices into my life. I am glad I went. Linda, you are a blessing and a joy. Keep up the good work!”

David Culver

“Thank you so much for this great journey “The 6-Week Workshop.” You have taught me so much and helped me to care for my sanctuary — my body and soul. And you have opened my eyes beyond my world to care and respect mother earth and give thanks to the heavenly father. This knowledge you have shared with me is over and beyond what I hoped for. And I will do my best to share this great renewed energy with every soul I meet who are willing to experience the same positive vibration. Most Appreciative.”


“Thank you ever so much for the awesome bodywork you treated me to recently. The session far exceeded my expectations which were already high! Your expertise in the physical work astounds me but the honey that drew me to you in the beginning, and will always be remembered as one of the most significant events in my life, was to experience your caring, compassionate, loving nature. You opened up my world. Please let me know how I can help with your clinic; I would love to contribute somehow as a volunteer.”

“I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all the things you’ve taught me these past two weeks.  I have learned so much – more than I had any idea I would learn.  On top of that, your compassion, kindness and patience are truly outstanding.  It has been an honor and pleasure to be here, supported by you, meeting two truly phenomenal women.  I am so blessed by you.  Thank you so very much!”


“I am so grateful for you being a part of my journey.  You have helped me to change my life in so many positive ways.  I bought this card about a year ago, but it always seemed to be too much, until I met you.  I feel like I’ve known you forever! Who knows?? I thank God for guiding me to you, as you truly are an earth angel!  I aspire to shine as brightly with God’s love as you.  Thank you for sharing all your gifts with me.  I look forward to spending time with you in the future.”


“There are many things I am thankful for and I want you to know that you’re part of that.  Just meeting you was a great factor in this transition taking place in my life — emotionally, spiritually and career-wise.  I hope that I will be able to show people the way to have peace in their life the way that you portray that calm peacefulness in yours.  And — thank you for the flaxseed — I love it!”
