Jen Martinez-Bentley, HD

It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Dr. Jen Martinez-Bently. Dr. Jen, as most of us students affectionately address her, has been a great mentor to me for almost six plus years. Dr. Jen, along with others from WINM, have assisted me with my education and understanding of natural medicine. She has walked me through over 20 classes and hundreds of hours of instruction and clinical hours. She is a wealth of knowledge and a treasure. I am grateful to have learned under her.

Dr. Jen is a fabulous teacher! She is one of the best teachers I have ever had. Classes with Dr. Jen are kept very small which allows Dr. Jen to personalize the material she teaches to each of her students. I always look forward to my next class with Dr. Jen.

Dr. Jen is one of the best teachers you could ever have! Her teaching technique and ability to simplify even the most complex subjects really allow you to fully grasp even the most hardest topics taught at WINM. She's amazing and her classes are so insightful! Definitely recommended if you're looking for a career change, or just trying to grow your own personal health knowledge!

I discovered the Washington Institute many years ago because I was having health issues with a chronic rash around my eyes. The remedies Dr. Jen recommended for me worked within a week, after I had been struggling with the problem for months! Then I learned about their education programs and I began the process of getting certified in several courses they offered. I received my certification as a Holistic Health Practitioner and Holistic Nutrition Consultant in 2002 and I have been taking classes with them ever since. Dr. Jen is a wealth of knowledge and is a great instructor. I am so grateful I found this wellness center and education facility almost 20 years ago. Under the support of Dr. Goldsten and Dr. Jen, I began my own successful wellness center. Little did I know it would turn into a career for me and my life's passion! I couldn't have done this without their support and amazing education programs. I highly recommend working with the Washington Institute and Dr. Jen Martinez for your wellness needs and for getting certified in holistic wellness modalities.

***** I want to scream from the Mountain Top ***** Five Star Training, Well Worth It ***** To Whom It May Assist: My name is Erica. In May 2013, I was extremely obese weighing 374 pounds. I decided it was time to take control of my life, my health, my weight. As I embarked on this journey I sought out environments where I can become knowledgeable about Nutrition and Health Care. This is when I found the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine (WINM). After reviewing the site, I immediately enrolled in Holistic Nutrition and Holistic Health Care programs as I felt these programs were exactly what I needed restore normal health and weight. At the time I enrolled I thought I would simply complete these programs and it would help me transform my life. Going to WINM has been so much more for me. I am so grateful to this Institute. Since beginning classes in June I have lost 40lbs. WINM has equipped me with the information I needed to be successful in my journey for weight loss. With the knowledge I obtained from WINM I am sure I will continue to make better choices and lose more weight. I now have a wealth of information about Nutrition and Health Care. During the last three months with WINM it has also sparked an interest and passion for becoming a Health Care professional. Thus I will continue on with the WINM into the Naturopathology program. Additionally, I will take the certification exam through the American Naturopathic and Holistic Association and the American Association of Nutritional Consultants. Instructor Dr. Jen Martinez-Bentley is an amazing woman who has numerous certifications. She is extremely intelligent and very good instructor. I enjoy taking classes with Jen. I wanted publicly thank Dr. Jen Martinez-Bentley and the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine for teaching me how to save my life. I hope this testimony has been helpful to you in your journey. Warm Regards, Erica 202-276-2584


After attending natural health care classes at the Washington Institute of Natural medicine I became a member of the American Naturopathic and Holistic Association. After becoming a member I sat for a certification exam in Holistic Health. It was a great process. The teacher , Dr. Jen Martinez was very helpful. ----- If you are looking for natural health care classes this is the place to be. The two instructors Dr. Jen Martinez and Dr. Leon James have over 50 years of combined experience. --- It was also important for me to know that the American Naturopathic and Holistic Association is approved by the Virginia Department of Education which permits the association to give out certificate. Other natural health practitioners or centers will give out certificates, when completing a class, but are not actually permitted to do so legally.

It was a great weekend. The instructor, Dr. Jen Martinez, ND, is a fabulous teacher who has a wealth of knowledge! On the way home I once again was flooded with gratitude and joy for life...and then Louis Armstrong's "Wonderful World" came on...isn't that the truth? It was a joy and an honor to meet and meld with the teacher and the other girls. In light, Sophia
