“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 have had tremendous results with healing with help from Linda of COAH.  Such a peaceful and welcoming environment to all that come for help.  I strongly recommend her services as they are very effective and therapeutic.
The greatest gift that can be given is the knowledge of how to heal oneself and live a peaceful life. When I was 15 years old, I became very ill with Crohn’s disease which required the removal of my colon. It took years of absence from my studies, strenuous and painstaking treatments, surgeries and hospital stays. At this time, I had already been drawn to natural medicine over pharmaceuticals, even more so when I experienced the harmful side effects of the drugs I was being given. When I met Linda Sheer at the Center, something clicked and my perspective on “disease” began to shift. A reality that once felt doomed, was given a glimpse of a brighter future. The truth that is provided at this wonderful place of healing, is one that sets free any soul willing to take on new beginnings and growth. After 5 years of being on heavy doses of pharmaceuticals, I was able to slowly transition to herbal remedies. Taking my health into my own hands has been the most empowering experience thus far. Linda has never urged me forcefully to do any of the things she recommends, only what I felt was right for myself at the moment. In doing this I’ve come to many realizations and have continued my journey with excitement and vigor! 

Now, at age 26 I am living happily, healthy and have gained so much more from what I once considered to be a disease outside of my control. Linda has given me the gift of knowledge and love in the most pure form, and for that I owe her my thanks.

The purpose of our journey is to restore ourselves to wholeness. The Center of Awakened Health is the perfect place to do so.

The following is a short documentary about this courageous young woman’s  healing journey:

In 2009, I joined my brother at the Center of Awakened Health when he was facing a terminal illness. The minute we walked in the door, we both knew that we had come to the right place. We immediately felt a very special love, support, and positive energy and experienced an unmatched wisdom and knowledge of the body, mind and soul that brought us comfort and peace. I have returned regularly to the Center to continue to learn about the power of nutrition and how I can best care for my physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

The heart and soul of the Center is Linda Sheer, a remarkable human being who generously shares with others her expertise and her ability to care and heal. Since 2009, I have never considered any medical intervention without first consulting with Linda. She knows me – she has taken the time to get to know me and understands what is best for me in ways that other healthcare providers have not. She cares, truly cares, about each of her clients.

Whether dealing with an acute or chronic health concern, we can all feel complete confidence in Linda and her husband, Jeff, as they have designed a way to help us live life more fully and authentically by making certain that we not only understand the “science” behind our lives but we also embrace how we can best manage our days moving forward.

Peace, love, joy and healing – that is what I have experienced each and every minute of each and every day I have spent at the Center of Awakened Health and I am confident that you will, as well. What a blessing Linda, Jeff and the Center are to this world!

Linda is absolutely amazing! She helped me holistically to be cancer free! She is always available to answer questions and willing to listen! I cannot imagine going through radiation and chemo like the medical doctor wanted me to do. He said I would be dead in 1 year! It’s now over 4 years. and I am cancer free!!!
 Thank you Linda!!!

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.

“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 + rating.”

His last book (2021) is called “Weathering the Storm: CoVid Protection and Recovery”.

I was diagnosed with tonsil-throat cancer in summer of 2016. I had tumor removed and from there the Doctor wanted to do radiation-chemo for 6 months. (would have possibly meant loss of teeth, taste buds, saliva glands, etc). It was a route I did not want to take. It was suggested by a friend that I go see Linda. I did and even though I thought I was eating healthy and living healthy, I found that there was more that could be done. Linda immediately put me on a strict lymphatic cleanse and raw vegetables, fruits along with botanical medicines. The results were immediate. I know this because I continued going to the surgeon – who removed my tumor and was emphatic about radiation-chemo – to get my throat scoped monthly for 1 year and he was amazed. His exact words were, “your throat looks as good maybe even better than it would if you had the radiation chemo”. I continued to go to Linda, now 2 ½ plus years in and I am down to maintenance, (which means I now eat fruit, some cooked vegetables and some grains, beans and nuts, and still use some of the botanical formulas. I am down to going to the surgeon twice a year, (and he is still amazed).

I’ve been to many homeopaths, integrative med clinics, acupuncture etc, and the way Linda treated my illness and to this day treats me, was above and beyond my experience anywhere else. The key is your personal follow thru. You can lead a horse to water but  you can’t make it drink. I am extremely thankful to linda for taking the time to help me.

Linda Sheer and the Center of Awakened Health offers numerous opportunities for growth and development. However the one response I see most consistent is the compassionate availability of Linda’s tireless energy. One that comes from the Heart and enters each and every individual that enters this environment. Wonderfu blessings abound to those whose energy guides them into these delicate hands. Than you Linda for this boundless energy that you have gifted this world. Blessings to you and your Center.

Linda is an amazing person and a gifted healer. She is such a warm, caring knowledgeable person; doing a wonderful job to uplift humanity and shine the light on how to heal body, mind and soul.

The uncanny thing about the truth is it has a frequency that once received by any of my 5 senses, it sets me free. Free of what?  Well, anything that is blocking me from living life to its fullest. I am an engineer in the defense industry, an Air Force veteran, and very active in all facets of my life. In 2015, on the outside, I was showing up to everything as usual, but inwardly I was a slug, walking exhausted, and couldn’t pinpoint why.  Sleep, digestion, emotions–all in turmoil. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. 

As an avid fan of the late Dr. Bob Marshall Healthline Live Radio Show and CEO of Premier Research Labs (PRL), I called for counsel; and they referred me to Linda Sheer, BS, RN, CMTA, the only Quantum Health Practitioner in the states (were I was living then) of NC and SC.  The rest is history.  Despite living in New England now, the Center of Awakened Health is my home for health and wellness: I visit several times a year. I follow a holistic lifestyle and plant-based diet designed for my body and mode of living. Recently, my primary care doctor, delighted with all the levels of my recent blood panel, said, “whatever you’re doing, Victoria, keep doing it.” 

I am more vibrant, energetic, and excited about life in my mid-50s than in my mid-30s.  I credit Linda for my renewed vigor. She is more than a practitioner; she is a teacher.  I have been living in good health for over 5 years now. I can feel when I am on and I can feel when I am off. I’ve learned that symptoms of sickness are no longer my foes demanding over-the-counter remedies to mask them.  They are my friends telling me the truth about levels of acidity causing inflammation somewhere in my body, interfering with lymph flow, for example, and so on. I know what to do now to help my body help itself and whenever I am unsure, I give Linda a call.  You can, too.

In January 2021 when my oncologist wanted to give me chemotherapy  for a second time, I opted out and found Linda.  My trust in Pharmaceuticals and “The Western Medical Model” has been tarnished and I am ready to take the less traveled path to good health.  Now in May 2022 after two CT Scans and two mammogram test, the doctor said he could find no trace of cancer.  Linda is an absolute angel!!!  I’ve given the Center’s phone number out to many, many people.  She is a 5 star +

When I learned about the kidney tumor (March 2016), I was shocked, but not too worried initially. For decades I have been health conscious and doing what I thought was right in terms of self-care. However, my calmness evaporated rather quickly during an appointment with the urologist. With a 3D display of the MRI clearly visible on a large screen, he explained point by point the pros and cons of various treatment options. After 45 minutes of explanations, his conclusion was that I need to have a complete nephrectomy of the left kidney within a couple of months. I checked with other doctors and received the same recommendation. One nagging question, however, that none of the doctors could answer is the cause. None had a clue where the tumor came from or why.

Fortunately, this is where Linda’s assistance was indispensable. I found out about COAH through my sister Vicky. What a refreshing way to approach health care. First, understand the cause behind the observed symptoms. The cause is key. Once this is known, then there is no guess work in deciding what the best remedy is. Linda’s approach to wellness is wholistic and makes sense. What happens inside our bodies is not just a random scenario nor is it always outside our control. For many chronic ailments and cancers, we have brought the problems upon ourselves by what we eat and how we eat. In a sense, we reap what we sow. I spent a week at COAH, during which time Linda gave an intensive presentation on how the body works and the steps to follow to maintain or regain health. No one can guarantee a cure because there are too many factors involved for that. However, with the right information, we are better equipped to make sensible decisions. Now seven years later, I am happy to share that I still have both kidneys.

Thank you, Linda, so much for the work that you do.

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 can’t begin to say how wonderful my experience was at the Center of Awakened Health (COAH). Prio 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 as Linda’s suggestion PRIOR TO coming to Coah, I could see great improvements. But once I cam 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 first saw Linda about six years ago. I had told a friend about some health issues I was having and she suggested I find someone who did quantum research analysis (QRA testing). Linda does this testing, and I was referred to her. I have learned from Linda that in order for my body to heal I need to eat enlivening raw fruits and vegetables, take specific botanicals formulas (as per QRA results) and address negative emotions and thoughts. She has studied under some of the most knowledgeable researchers and teachers of nutrition and has gained knowledge about nutrition by the work she has done with clients. By following Linda’s recommendations I am in great health and appreciate the guidance she has given me. Linda has a caring and loving heart and I would highly recommend her.

Walking in to the  Center, I immediately felt a sense of calm, it is a beautiful, peaceful facility. The healthy program that Linda worked out for me, combination of nutrition and very precise supplements, seems tailor made to improve some logstanding issues. I think the Center’s name “awakened health,” is very apt. Thank you to Linda and her staff!

I have known Linda Sheer (founder and director of COAH) for almost twenty years and watcher 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 of 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 brings both traditional experience as an RN and decades of experience and knowledge of the best practices for healing and health, such as, special non-invasive testing (what organs system 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 hospitals 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 stays and are worked with sometimes 12  hours 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.

“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.”

I recommend anyone with cancer or any chronic illness go here to experience healing touch of Linda and her staff. I left there feeling healthier and with the knowledge I needed to continue in my healthy lifestyle and I was there because I had cancer. I love the bond I created with Linda who was like a mother hen to me. Every time I think about her and her very peaceful environment I can’t help but smile about the memories I experienced there. I want to go back someday even if it’s just for a wellness check and an excuse to see her again.

“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.”

Testimony about the school

Going to Center of Awakened Health’s School, Linda Sheer taught me to look at many things with new eyes. Especially who I am and who I am in this human body. What is health and what is living healthy were the essential answers that came to me. Also, how to achieve and ultimately assist others to achieving radiant health alongside me.

We looked at dispelling myths, fantasies, downright lies, and conscious manipulation of health care in America that’s unfortunately spreading across the globe. We learned easy and fun ways of understanding our human body and means to greater wellbeing. Healthy alternatives to the SAD (standard American diet), fast food, the dyes and poisons of what is put on a body, in a body, and what is used around our bodies as well as the chemicals that saturate our air and more were explored.

Havoc witnessed and accepted too long is being dismissed across the globe especially in places like Southern Pines North Carolina where pioneers like Linda Sheer, founder of Center of
Awakened Health (carries an invisible banner of love) speaks boldly of “Doing No Harm to Oneself, Others and The Environment.” Participants of COAH’s School share in that goodness. We were offered an opportunity to shine a healthy light so that Humanity can shine now and well into the future.” The thing I told people who asked about my experience and what I learned at COAH was…”Just Love!”
