TAFYH Evaluation:by Marilyn
Commitment: A phone call 15 minutes, 5 days a week for eight weeks, reading the material, doing the assignments. It is not a huge commitment of time, but it is a huge commitment towards one's health.
Participation: Lessons included assignments which gave us an opportunity to put into practice what we learned. Everyone had a chance to speak and point out what concepts in the lesson stood out for them. It's good support to be part of a small group with everyone sharing and going through the program together.
Information/Education: I am impressed with the breadth and depth of information in each lesson. After beginning the class I became aware at how little I actually knew about how the body systems work (or don't work) in harmony. I wondered how could I have lived in my body for so long without having much of an understanding of how it all works. I will use this knowledge for the rest of my life.
Structure: The structure of each class made it very easy to follow. We always knew what the expectations were. It was a quick 15 minutes every morning. Donna is a master teacher and is skilled at keeping us on task and not wasting time.
Application: I now understand how to make decisions for my own health and also can help others. In fact, even though that is not what I set out to do I can't help but want to share the information about this program with all those who are willing to lend an ear.
Implications: The implications are huge in not only affecting my own health - physical, mental and emotional - but passing it on to affect the health and well-being of others. Since beginning the program I have passed the information on to many friends and acquaintances. One of my friends started the TAFHY class this week.
The BSQ is an easy to understand, straightforward measurement tool which helps a person realize how their symptoms relate to certain body systems and which systems may need priority attention. A follow up BSQ shows how health symptoms can improve by following the program.
Thanks to Donna for sharing all this information and her expertise, and thanks to each one in our TAFYH group for their commitment and sharing as we went through the program together.
