Cynthia Hofmann-Coale, NTP, CNHP
Owner and Critical & Chronic Care Clinician
Certified in Autonomic Response Testing
God gave Cynthia Hofmann-Coale the commission to walk away from the medical community after spending 7 months under their care. It was during this time that she surrendered to the technology offered by the medical community in hopes that she would receive the eradication of the ulcerative colitis and cancerous cells found in her colon. When told at the end of the 7th month that her body was failing to go into remission and either surgery or an increase in infusions would need to be performed, Cynthia felt led by the Lord to go back to what she knew, natural health.
After a series of inspired interventions, she was brought to the understanding that it was neither the colitis nor the cancer that was taking her life, but the very presence of a water borne parasite that had gone systemic (active in the bloodstream) that was robbing her body of the nutrients and vitality that was necessary to obtain optimal health. It was at this time that she was introduced to the art of Muscle Response Testing.
Being an active participant in the rebuilding, restructuring and the re-establishment of her broken 85 lb body using the means of God’s intention in that process was notably both challenging and inspiring. It was during this time that God gave her the vision of healing and how he would be using all that she was going through for her good and His glory (Romans 8:28). While this process went on for sometime, she was able to develop her own skills in Nutrition Response Testing and acquire the educational background necessary to in turn bring it to God’s children. And so the inspiration for the Well of Life Center was established.
Victoria Fisher, RN, NTP
Certified in Autonomic Response Testing
Victoria Fisher came to the Well of Life Center in August 2009 for the symptoms of migraines, chronic fatigue and poor quality of sleep. Since coming to the Well Victoria has experienced healing from migraines, increased energy, and improved over-all health. Victoria started working at the Well in April of 2010 as an Associate Clinician.
“I had suffered with daily headaches and frequent, severe migraines since I was 12 years old. I had been to numerous doctors, had countless diagnostics tests, but had no answers as to why I had migraines. I was on medication intended to prevent them, but was still having them three times a week. And the medication came with uncomfortable side effects. I was miserable!
I am a registered nurse and have a degree in biology, so I put my trust in my doctors, in medicine. I thought medicine would heal me. But it didn’t; the medical community failed me. I was tired of suffering and desperate for relief. I reluctantly came to the Well after my mother begged me to give it a try. Thank God I did! Within 3 months of being a client, I was off my medication, I no longer had daily headaches, and the migraines were greatly diminished.
My dream as a child was to be a doctor, to help people through medicine, so I never for a second thought I would work in the holistic community. Apparently, the Lord had other plans. BY coming to the Well, I learned that I could carry out my dream to help people find healing in a much better way. I have been called to be a clinician, and I can say with certainty that I have found my purpose!”
Dr. Vladimir Alhov, MD
Doctor, Pain Management Specialist
Dr. Alhov came to the Well of Life Center in June of 2017 as a Physician.
“My passion for holistic medicine developed as a result of a personal medical condition. In recent years, I have been able to restore my health by utilizing a holistic approach. My physical and mental health is now better than it was 5 years ago. My approach decreases the risk of age-related disease, improves sleep quality, increases physical and sexual vitality, and keeps the body lean and strong. This is accomplished through customized diet and nutritional support, medical detoxification, manual therapy, injections, and patient education.”

I am on a journey to get off of insulin completely and I am excited about that outcome! The amounts that are needed have decreased in half after coming to the well…. but I still have some work to do with getting my organ systems to be able to communicate well together. I am so thankful that I’ve been given this opportunity to be able to truly help my body heal, and also to be a part of such an amazing workplace where we see God’s healing hand affecting so many lives on a daily basis!

He was willing to try anything so he first came to the Well. I being the skeptic decided to watch from the sidelines before I made the drastic changes that he was.
After a year of seeing the changes to this health I decided to give it a try. I was still skeptical but began losing weight and feeling much more energy, we did the Boot Camp together in the Fall of 2008 and after that experience I was sold on how beneficial these changes to diet etc. can be.
I began getting educated through the cooking classes and lectures and found a whole new world of food choices open up to me. I am so pleased when at my age I have more energy than my daughters who are in their 20’s and I am fully able to enjoy playing with my young grandchildren. I want to leave to my children and grandchildren a legacy of health and wellness.”
